Does Anybody Really Know What Time It is?: Cavs vs. Bulls Behind The Box Score

The Cavaliers had a great opportunity on national television to take the lead in the Central Division and clinch the tiebreaker against their Central counterpart, the Chicago Bulls. But, shorthanded, they didn’t get any spectacular performances, and the Bulls certainly got a couple of their own as the Bulls maintained a respectable lead for most of the second half, pulling away...

LeBron James hasn’t talked to Pat Riley since leaving the Miami Heat

It looks like there’s a rift between Cleveland Cavaliers star LeBron James and Miami Heat president Pat Riley. James and Riley haven’t spoken to each other since James bolted the Heat to go back home to Cleveland five months ago.  James isn’t opposed to speaking with Riley, but he’s not going out of his way. “If the opportunity presents itself, I don’t mind,” James...

The Wheel of Shooting Guards

The first two months of the 2014-15 NBA season has provided no shortage of fascinating storylines. None of them, however, intrigues me more than the way that Cleveland Cavaliers head coach David Blatt has approached the shooting guard position within his rotation. Through the course of each game, with each spin as it were, Blatt seemingly looks to somebody else to deliver a performance...

The Cavs and Their Need to Improve Pick and Roll Defense

The pick and roll is one of the most important elements of modern NBA offenses. Depending on who you talk to, the NBA has or has not been “a pick and roll league” over various stretches. But, like something as simple and commonplace as the play-action in football, it’s an elemental part of offense that virtually every team incorporates to some degree. The pick and roll is akin...

LeBron James Has Failed as Cleveland’s GM

​ At first glance, it seems pretty obvious: wouldn’t all 30 NBA teams move mountains in order to have LeBron James in their uniform? Well, probably. But there definitely is an identifiable downside to having the world’s best player on your team: the end of your bench gets filled up with ring-chasing veterans and James’ personal friends. It happened in 2010 in Miami...

Jones providing extra spark off of Cavs bench

Over the course of his career, James Jones has always been a consummate professional. Whether it was embracing a starting role in his earlier days or coming off of the bench as a veteran presence, Jones has been consistent with his preparation. "This is a team sport," Jones said. "Roles and team dynamics change consistently. Every year there's 30 to 40 to 50 or so new players in...

NBPA firing warning shots in advance of 2017 labor discussions

A few weeks back, we linked to a profile of Michele Roberts, the NBA players’ union executive director, which painted her as a no-******** firecracker who was ready to put the union on her back and lead them to greener pastures than they could ever imagine—the kind with commas and zeros and all kinds of presidents our past. “My past is littered with the bones of men who were...

LeBron James to Everyone: “RELAX”

The Cleveland Cavaliers are 1-3, and could have been winless if not for an overtime against the Chicago Bulls. Dion Waiters won’t pass. Kyrie Irving won’t pass. Kevin Love can’t play defense. Mike Miller and Shawn Marion don’t fit in. James Jones hasn’t played. Matthew Dellavedova is injured and could miss a month. LeBron has already had a confrontation with a two-time...

NBA to Cavs, Heat: Don't use three-goggle gesture in Brazil

We often see NBA players celebrate making a three-point shot with a hand gesture referred to as "three-goggles." We won't, however, be seeing the "three-goggles" this weekend when the Cleveland Cavaliers take on the Miami Heat in preseason action in Rio de Janeiro. Why? Because the gesture is off-limits in Brazil. It may sound strange, but it's true. To fans in the United States...

Moving On Up: The Wine & Gold Scrimmage

When I walked into Quicken Loans Arena Wednesday night for the 2014 Wine and Gold Scrimmage, a remix of Curtis Mayfield’s “Move On Up” was playing in the concourse. Coincidence perhaps, but that song managed to capture everything those in attendance (and attempting to watch on Cavs.com) felt about this glimpse of the new Cavs: The tempo, the spirit, the fun.

I spoke with 2x NBA champion James Jones for my latest at SLAM Magazine. I asked Jones how he, as a veteran, is able to move past the spectacle of Cavs media day and help set the tone for training camp. He offered some valuable insight and description of both his approach, as well as his fellow championship free-agents Shawn Marion and Mike Miller. An excerpt of Jones’ quotes...

Aside from the usual excitement over the fact LeBron James is on the team again, fans should be thrilled with the likes of Mike Miller and even James Jones. It's been a long, LONG time since anyone in Cleveland could nail perimeter shots like those two. 2. That much was evident on the first day of practice...
