If you haven’t noticed, Kyrie Irving’s not the only new Cavalier making waves for Cleveland. Cavs’ newcomer Alonzo Gee is proving to be a great role player—and his coach, Byron Scott, agrees.
The 24-year-old from Florida took a pretty interesting route to Cleveland. After playing for the University of Alabama, Zo went undrafted in the 2009 NBA Draft. The Austin Toros of the D-League signed him, and Gee went on to average 21 points and 6.6 rebounds. The 6-6 forward then bounced from the Wizards to the Spurs and back to the Toros, where he won D-League Rookie of the Year. After the Spurs (again), the Cavaliers’ camp was the next stop.
Coach Scott has taken it upon himself to mentor and instill confidence in Alonzo just like he mentored Daniel Gibson last season and Tyson Chandler while with the Hornets. Both Gibson and Chandler turned around their careers for the better. Judging by his career-high 20 points in last Friday’s game against Orlando, Zo is n...

CLEVELAND -- The night started with a concussion and very well could have ended with a couple more.
Somewhere in between, the Cavaliers turned Quicken Loans Arena into their own personal steel-cage match, wrestling away a 99-92 win over the new-look and fairly chippy Los Angeles Clippers.

Tonight on TNT the NBA All-Star reserves will be announced. Cleveland fans have been hoping to see Anderson Varejao get a shot to represent the CLE in Orlando, and possibly even rookie Kyrie Irving. I’m sorry to have to say it, but it isn’t happening.
Clevelanders weren’t so crazy as to insist that Varejao should be voted in as an All-Star starter at center. Clearly, Howard...
CLEVELAND -- If Anderson Varejao isnt holding ice below his eye, it's probably only because he has it wrapped around his lower back.
One thing we know for sure: Varejao spent all day Thursday feeling extremely sore.
Sore because of the two hard falls he suffered in the fistfight that was a 99-92 win over the Clippers the night before.
Sore because of the elbow he took to the...
For three and a half periods the Cleveland Cavaliers were able to hang in with the Miami Heat. Then the melt down came. The Cavaliers have been a team this season that pours it on in the fourth, not tonight. The Heat was able to dominate the fourth and they hand Cleveland a 16 point defeat. Four Cavalier players were in double figures, it still wasn’t enough to make things close...

Cavaliers rookie guard Kyrie Irving has a concussion and is being kept out of Cleveland's game against the Los Angeles Clippers. The Cavs announced Irving's injury a few minutes before tip-off Wednesday night. The team said Irving was kneed in the head during the fourth quarter of Tuesday night's game at Miami.
When LeBron James and Cleveland get together, it's always a little extra special.
The Cavs have done some subtle promotion, but nothing like sending out IPods as one team did, loaded with highlights of a candidate.
Plain Dealer reporter says the sky is the limit for Cavs' dynamic guard.
Ramon Sessions scored a season-high 24 points as a last-minute replacement for injured rookie Kyrie Irving and Antawn Jamison scored 27, leading the Cleveland Cavaliers to a 99-92 win over the Los Angeles Clippers on Wednesday night.
