If you are familiar with me, you know about the hashtag I created – #NBAFree. Let me give you some background.
I grew up with the Cavs a close third to the Indians and Browns as my Cleveland sports loves. My father had season tickets at the old Richfield. I probably went to between 20-25 games a year on average from 1986-1993. I was a child of the Lenny Wilkens era. Prior to that, I remember being held up by my cousin Steve, 10 years my senior, to watch the final play of the game four first round series with the Boston Celtics where World B. Free (who averaged 26 a game during the playoffs) missed a jumper that could have tied the game (and the series for that matter). According to Steve, Larry Bird “fouled the s**t out of him” and the Cavs lost 117-115 in a thriller. In his disgust, my cousin dropped me and I landed right on the arm rest of the seat. As we sprinted out of the Coliseum to our car – remember there was one way to exit the arena and everyone went that way – the wind...

Brandon Knight is going to be hearing about this one for sometime. It looks like he's playing the shell game on the streets of New York except Kyrie left the shells at home and just used his dazzling handiwork instead. Poor guy--but in his defense this Kyrie Irving kid is pretty good.
Kenneth Faried may have been the MVP of the Rising Stars challenge on Friday night, but it was the Cavaliers youngsters who stole the show. With four Cavaliers (Irving, Thompson, Waiters, and Zeller) in the game there was rarely a minute of action that went by where a Cavalier was not involved.
During a stretch in the middle of the first half, with all four Cavs on the floor, the...
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...
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...
With the Cavaliers having two rookies playing prominent minutes, WFNY thought it would beneficial to see how the fresh meat around the league is faring in comparison with the Cavalier rookies. Each week, we’ll have NBA rookie power rankings where we’ll rack and stack the freshman class of the NBA. The rankings will be weighted with the most recent games carrying the most importance...
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...
Second year Cleveland Cavaliers point guard Kyrie Irving breaks Detroit Pistons guard Brandon Knight's ankles with a dirty crossover in the Rising Stars game last night. Check out the video below.

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...
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...
As suspected by many leading up to this weekend’s festivities, Miami Heat forward Chris Bosh will start in the All-Star game in place of injured point guard Rajon Rondo.
Miami Heat head coach Eric Spolestra was given the final decision and chose one of his players over other point guards in Cleveland’ s Kyrie Irving and Philadelphia’s Jrue Holiday. Bosh will start alongside...
