"Did you congratulate Chris yet?"
That was the question Luke Walton asked me on Friday, prior to the Cavaliers matchup with the New York Knicks.
"No, why, what happened?" I replied.
"My man had a kid last night, big time stuff".
"Wow, nice, congrats on that, Chris," I said, while standing by Walton and Quinn in the corner of the Cavs locker room.
"Yeah thanks man," Quinn replied. "We're pretty excited".
It was at that point—mid-conversation with Walton and Quinn—I realized the shame it is that Cleveland hasn't had the opportunity to really meet the newest member of the Cavaliers backcourt since his arrival way back on March 20.
What if we saw Quinn handing out celebratory cigars on Public Square this week, for example, and nobody understood why?
With this in mind—surrounded by the only other relevant storylines including Byron Scott's job status, Dion Waiters' whereabouts a...

Cleveland Cavaliers shooting guard Dion Waiters still has a loose fragment of cartilage in his knee and the team has not ruled out arthroscopic surgery this summer. Waiters recently missed 10 games due to the injury but he has since returned to play in the Cavs’ two past contests. It appears as if he will suit up the rest of the way.

CLEVELAND -- This has officially gotten old.
The Cavaliers have to know that after their latest stinking loss, 96-95 to Miami on Monday at The Q.
It came on Fan Appreciation Night, when Cavs fans do what they always do.
They packed the building and went crazy in support of the home team -- then left disappointed.
Oh, it should be noted the Heat didnt even play their best guys...
As we wind down the NBA regular season, there is still time for some NBA players to throw their name in the hat for "Dunk of the Year".During Monday night's Cleveland Cavaliers/Miami Heat game, Cavaliers rookie guard Dion Waiters put together an impressive poster dunk.The victim: Miami Heat back-up center Chris "Birdman" Anderson:
The NBA regular season is dwindling down and with LeBron James, Mario Chalmers, Chris Bosh, and Dwyane Wade sitting out, the Miami Heat still handled the Cleveland Cavaliers on Monday night. Despite Cleveland losing, they did have one particular highlight when rookie Dion Waiters drove the lane and dunked all over Chris “Birdman” Andersen. The post Cleveland’s Dion Waiters...
Final: Sixers 91, Cavaliers 77
For a team not going to be involved in post season play, this was the perfect way to end the final home game of the season. The Sixers got out the gate early outscoring the Cavs 32-19 in the first quarter. It was obvious from early on that the Sixers would make a constant effort to make Kyrie Irving's night as difficult as possible. The Cavs star...
They needed to handle this team easily. The Cavaliers are still in kind of a rebuilding mode. They started Tyler Zeller at center. And even though the Knicks were playing without their big man combo in Tyson Chandler and Kenyon Martin, they were still able to beat this team with ease. Its a good boost to their confidence because that loss to the Bulls could have sent them spiraling...
Last night, the Cavaliers fell to the New York Knicks 101-91, largely due to the stellar performances of New York’s 1-2 punch of Carmelo Anthony and J.R. Smith (31 points each). Rather than a traditional recap, I thought I’d take a stab at looking at some of the crazy cross-matchups that occurred in this game’s, primarily centered around Anthony playing the power forward position...
CLEVELAND (AP) -- LeBron James watched from the bench in street clothes as Norris Cole stripped Kyrie Irving of the ball with 2.2 seconds left to give the Miami Heat, resting most of their top players for the playoffs, a 96-95 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Monday night.
Cole finished with 18 points, 11 rebounds and 9 assists. But it was his only steal on Cleveland's final...
"You be quiet now, boy. I'm trying to watch 'Quincy.'"
When Byron Scott stands glowering on
the Cavaliers' sideline, he looks like that strict uncle you were always a
little bit afraid of. The kind of old-school disciplinarian not shy about
pulling out his belt to deliver a whoopin' on whoever was fixin' for one,
Don’t worry, we didn’t get overly political even as we talked about Scott’s trip to see the Mets with Ann Coulter in order to do a feature for Esquire. It was all just a ramp to Cleveland sports and some Cavs talk.
