Found February 13, 2013 on Beyond The Buzzer:
Boston, Charlotte and Cleveland are among the top teams interested in former No. 1 pick, Greg Oden, who hasn’t played in the NBA in over two years. It is being reported that the 7 footer is leaning towards the team that is expected to offer him a guaranteed 2-year deal, the Cleveland Cavaliers. According to Sam Amico, Fox Sports Ohio: Sources said over the weekend Oden has been leaning toward the Cavs all along. If true, it would make good sense. They’re the only NBA team located in the state where he played his college ball, and he has a large and supportive following in Cleveland because of it. Oden also likes the notion of playing on the same team as Kyrie Irving — and considers the Cavs’ reigning Rookie of the Year the type of dynamic young point guard that could help jumpstart Oden’s rebirth, sources said.

Cleveland Cavaliers: Advanced Stats Show that the Cavaliers are Nothing Without Kyrie Irving

There is no doubting the fact that Kyrie Irving is one of the rising superstars in this league and that he should become one of the greatest players of this generation. At 19, he has already won the Rookie of the Year award and is already an All-Star. He is the highest scoring point guard in the NBA and sixth overall and has it been mentioned that he is only 19? He has not yet reached...

Cavaliers limp into All-Star break where Kyrie Irving won’t have much of one

Metaphors are a funny thing. In the National Basketball Association, seven seconds can turn a prince in to a pauper. It was the “seven seconds or less” offense that ultimately earned Mike D’Antoni two large market jobs. Reggie Miller used the large part of seven seconds when he drained two consecutive three-pointers against the New York Knicks in 1995. And it was the same seven...

Box Score: Spurs 96 Cavaliers 95

Talk about a strange game. The Cleveland Cavaliers played the San Antonio Spurs about as tough as you could possibly hope, and they did it on a night in which Kyrie Irving arguably played the worst game of his career since his debut game against the Raptors last season. The Cavaliers came out strong and rose a combination of impressive bench play (especially on defense) and an unexpected...

Couldn’t The Cleveland Cavaliers Score One More Basket Against San Antonio?

When you look at it on paper you would think the Cleveland Cavaliers were going to be blown out of the game last night against the San Antonio Spurs, in reality, Cleveland hung in the game very well. One point is all it came down to, the margin of victory for the spurs was one point. The Spurs beat the Cleveland Cavaliers 96-95 last night. The Cavs needed just one more basket to...

Talking Cavs with Glenn and dealing with Dion's defense

Yesterday afternoon I caught up with our old friend and former co-host of the Wine and Gold Podcast Glenn Moore from Cleveland.com. Mr. Moore and I discussed the chances of Kyrie Irving winning the 3-point shoot-out, the article  I wrote comparing Irving to Mark Price last week and the trade possibilities surrounding Big Mo Speights. The link to that episode of Cleveland...

POTD 2/13/13: CJ Miles on Tiago Splitter & Matt Bonner

This particular play would’ve been cooler had the Cavaliers maintained the three-point lead that it gave them, but hey, a dunk on two Spurs is a dunk on two Spurs.  Austin Carr thought it was fantastic, and it’s not like he’s ever been known to be overly excitable. Something every NBA fan should know: CJ Miles the… um… adult film star has more Twitter followers than CJ...

Matchup of the Game: Spurs vs. Cavs

The matchup for tonight's game when the San Antonio Spurs visit the Cleveland Cavaliers before the All-Star break will be between Tony Parker and Kyrie Irving. The last time these two players faced off against each other was last season during a lockout shortened season. The Spurs took care of the Cavaliers easily in a 125-90 victory. The game saw Parker only play 23 minutes...

Checking in on the Cavs Core

Fast forward to next year and nights like Monday, hopefully, will be unacceptable. As for right now, a loss to a hobbled and reeling Minnesota Timberwolves is one that can be taken, reluctantly, with a grain of salt. Chalk it up to the growing pains of a young and inexperienced basketball team. It's hard to tell if that eases the pain or enhances it--that the Cavs have...
