The Cleveland Cavaliers dealt for 23-year old Omri Casspi on the day before the lockout with the idea of starting him at small forward in 2011-12. Casspi played in 71 games (27 starts) for the Kings last year and he averaged 24.0 minutes, 8.6 points, 4.3 rebounds and 1.0 assist per game. He has now played in 148 games (58 starts) in his first two years in the NBA and he is averaging 24.5 minutes, 9.5 points, 4.4 rebounds and 1.0 assist per game. 24-year old Alonzo Gee will also likely get some minutes at small forward and maybe even some at shooting guard this year. Gee played in 56 games (34 starts) for the Wizards, Spurs and Cavaliers last year and he averaged 20.0 minutes, 5.9 points, 3.3 rebounds and 0.7 assists per game.

Joe Tait was the Cleveland Cavaliers broadcaster for four decades, starting with when the NBA first dropped an expansion team in Cleveland to try and slow the growth of the ABA. Tait has a new book out about his recollections as a broadcaster, and of course there’s plenty of talk about LeBron James, something highlighted…
The Cavs really needed some sort of season, so the NBA's labor settlement is good news.
First off, Happy Thanksgiving all around. I hope everyone has a really great holiday.I also hope that some of you are related to people cool enough to be celebrating this festive occasion while wearing the types of sweaters that Cleveland Cavaliers Hall of Fame Announcer Joe Tait made famous. Or maybe even you're fashion forward enough to be breaking one of those sweaters...
