CLEVELAND -- Its not fair to judge the Cavaliers right now.
I know, I know. Weve said the same thing for the past three seasons. I know its getting a little old.
The Cavs are about to finish dead last in the Central Division for the third straight season. Thats a franchise first, and this franchise has been through some dire stretches.
It didnt even get this bad when Ted Stepien owned the team in the early 1980s. Stepien changed coaches like Larry King changes wives.
Still, even those Cavs werent in last place every season.
But those Cavs didnt have anyone like Kyrie Irving, either.
Of course, neither do these Cavs -- as Irving could miss the rest of the season with a sprained shoulder.
Rookie shooting guard Dion Waiters (sore knee) is also out, perhaps for the rest of the year as well.
Irving and Waiters form the Cavs starting backcourt, and when you toss in the somewhat forgotten injury to center Anderson Varejao well, you get the picture. It aint pretty. Again.
BEST OF MAXIM
On March 4, the Cleveland Cavaliers held a promotion at Quicken Loans Arena where the team gave away 50 limited edition bobbleheads bearing the likeness of “Uncle Drew,” the curmudgeonly character who can ball with the best of them despite his advanced age who is portrayed by point guard sensation Kyrie Irving in the much ballyhooed commercials for Pepsi Max.

First thing is, stay healthy, Scott said of the Cavs future, prior to Fridays 97-87...
Cleveland had a real chance to win this game and put Boston on a six-game losing streak, but surprisingly, most of the chatter was still about how much the Cavaliers suck. The general consensus from fans is that the team is tanking to get a good draft pick and with their superstar of the future, Kyrie Irving, out for the rest of the year, that seems to make sense. Most of the talk...
Jeff Green buried a game-winning layup against the Cleveland Cavaliers, and then shared a touching moment with his heart surgeon, Dr. Lars Svensson.
When taking into account the playing field that is the National Basketball Association, it is relatively easy to see how the Cleveland Cavaliers can blow a large lead to the New York Knicks. Even clearer, the way that an injury-ridden version of the same team could cough up a historical lead to the defending champion Miami Heat. But when the Boston Celtics come to town without All...
LIKE BUTTER BABY
It’s never too late in the season for some good old rookie hazing. Some of the Cavs took a page out of the Nets’ book Saturday, filling rookie, Dion Waiters’, entire SUV with loads and loads of popcorn.
