Upon further review....here are a few thoughts looking back on week one of the new Cavaliers campaign: -Andy. Wow.  13,15, 4 and shooting 64%.  We all had fun with the fact we were passing off Antawn Jamison and Anthony Parker as “veteran leaders” last year.  I couldn’t imagine a player playing that role any better than a guy like Andy.  Just relentless and a joy to watch. -Kyrie is picking up exactly where he left off.  He’s amazing and getting better.  He took over when he needed to in both the Wizards win and the Milwaukee heartbreaker.  His struggles against Chicago remind me of Lebron vs Detroit or the Celtics.  Those type of teams and defenses just aren’t going to let one great player beat them.  Overall this week he went for 23, 5 & 4 and shot it at 50%.  He played 32 minutes a night on average, a number that is sure to go up if we want to compete.  The fact this kid isn’t getting run on national TV is a damn shame. -A pretty nice start from Dion Waiters.  Not without f

Droid Sports App Review: Cleveland Cavaliers

Full disclosure: I was asked to be part of Verizon Wireless Midwest Bloggers program. I have been provided with a wireless device and five months of service in exchange for my honest opinions about the product. The phone is the Motorola Razr M. At the end of the program I get to keep the phone. Dan Gilbert himself broke the news via twitter that the Cavaliers were going to be launching...

Donald Sloan gets warned for most hilarious flop ever

That's Donald Sloan of the Cleveland Cavaliers, with maybe the most hilarious flop I've ever seen.  The arms up while spinning will be a great audition for the Cavs community theater production of The Sound of Music.   But as funny as it is, it's a no-no in today's NBA, even though it wasn't called.  So Sloan got a little warning from the league as part...

Cavaliers Look to Shake Off Rough Weekend with First West Coast Game of the Season

(Photo by Nathaniel S. Butler/NBAE via Getty Images) It was a rough weekend for the Cleveland Cavaliers, as they dropped both of their games Friday and Saturday night. The Cavaliers showed us two very different types of losses, though. Friday night against Chicago was a reprise of the song we heard so many times last season. The Cavaliers fell behind by 16 in the first quarter and...

Young Cavs give reason to take notice now

Think about this: Kyrie Irving and Dion Waiters are both 20 years old. Then think about this: The Cavaliers could be 3-1 right now. Then consider this: The Clippers were coming off a home loss to Golden State facing a very young Cavs team and back on their own floor. Yet the Cavs won anyway, 108-101, in a fun and up-and-down game Monday that featured something resembling playoff...

Cavs buck up in defeat

Random stuff from the Cavaliers 105-102 loss at Milwaukee on Saturday night: Losses like this you can handle. It was a road game on the second night of a back-to-back for a young team. And if it wasnt for some awful play from the reserves in the second quarter well, lets not even talk about it. Im stating the obvious here, but through three games, the bench has been atrocious...

J.J. Barea, Donald Sloan First Players Warned for Violating NBA's New Flopping Rules (Videos)

The NBA is the best. Not only are they announcing which players are warned under their new flopping regulations, but they're even posting videos of the violations. Minnesota Timberwolves guard J.J. Barea and Cleveland Cavaliers guard Donald Sloan were the first players caught for overreactions to physical play. Barea was warned for flopping with ten minutes...

Waiters lifts Cavs past Clippers

Last season, the Cleveland Cavaliers were apt to follow up a tough loss with another defeat. Things are slowly changing. Rookie Dion Waiters hit seven 3-pointers in scoring 28 points and Kyrie Irving added 24 points in a 108-101 victory over the Los Angeles Clippers on Monday night that snapped a two-game skid two nights after losing by three to Milwaukee. Coach Byron Scott called...

Box Score: Milwaukee 105, Cleveland 102

This game looked like it was going to overtime. Kyrie Irving’s layup tied the game with 0.7 seconds left but Brandon Jennings nailed a 28 footer as time expired. This was a back-and-forth affair. The Cavs built an early lead, then blew it. The Bucks had a lead for awhile, but the Cavs fought back. There’s a few takaways from this game: 1) Kyrie Irving is REALLY good. 2) So is...

Cavaliers beat Clippers to end 2-game skid

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Last season, the Cleveland Cavaliers were apt to follow up a tough loss with another defeat. Things are slowly changing.
