Irving: Cavs Beat Themselves on Tuesday Night

The refs made some good calls out there, they made some questionable ones, but it’s not a big deal. The loss tonight was about us. We kind of beat up ourselves tonight. - Cavaliers rookie point guard Kyrie Irving following the teams...

Kyrie Irving is taking over for the Cleveland Cavaliers

19-year old point guard Kyrie Irving has locked down the starting job for the Cavaliers and he is playing really well.  He has played in 9 games (all starts) for the Cavs so far this year and he is averaging 26.8 minutes, 15.6 points, 3.4 rebounds and 5.1 assists per game.  At some point the Cavs will likely start giving Irving more minutes if he continues to excel.  20-year old...

Not all bad in Cavs' turnover-infested loss

A few random observations on the Cavaliers 98-78 defeat at Portland on Sunday: 1. Im far from disgusted by this loss, despite the fact it came by 20 points. Thats probably what makes me different than the coaches and players (well, that and my jump shot), but the Cavs kept it surprisingly close for two-and-a-half quarters. And I say surprising because the Trail Blazers are a very...

Comparing Kyrie Irving's Game To Other PG's As Cavs Prep For Nash And Suns

As sports fans these days, we almost can't watch a young player emerge on a stage like the NBA for the first time without immediately trying to answer this question: so who is he like then? As if every single player has this other guy who ten or fifteen or thirty years before him previously entered the NBA with the exact same skill set, mentality, and instincts, and played his...
