Amico Report: For Cavs, Blatt is where it's at

Why not? That's my feeling about the Cleveland Cavaliers' hiring of David Blatt as coach. Why not? The man has won overseas -- a lot. He is clearly well-respected by his players, both near and far. He possesses a system that stresses ball movement, lots of touches for the right people, a fun style of play that should excite both players and fans. So why not? What else were the Cavs...

The Win Tax: Political Stunt or Decent Idea?

It’s either a brilliant, long-overdue idea, or a politician grandstanding as he seeks higher office. Or possibly a little of both. Last week, Cuyahoga County Executive Ed FitzGerald pitched the idea of a “win tax,” where a portion of the tax revenue generated by the sin tax for upkeep of the city’s facilities – Progressive Field, Quicken Loans Arena and Cleveland Browns...

History Repeating: Mike Brown takes the Fall…Again

There was a time, not that long ago, when Mike Brown was being applauded for being one of the game’s bright young defensive minds. His coaching skills had been forged in the crucibles of playoff runs as an assistant in San Antonio and Indiana. His Cleveland teams won ugly but won, and he even managed to have three seasons with a top ten NBA offense in terms of efficiency. Without...

All things equal, the Cavs firing Mike Brown makes some sense on the surface.  THIS JUST IN: Cavs have fired head coach Mike Brown. He went 33-49 last season...
