Anthony Bennett pulled from pro-am tournament in Toronto?

Anthony Bennett had been one of many Canadian basketball players participating in the second annual OVO Bounce tournament this week in Toronto. He played on Monday in the pro-am and he started playing again on Tuesday. Nothing seemed noteworthy, just the slimmed-down and finally-breathing 21-year-old Cleveland Cavalier playing in front of some fans. But according to various reports...

Dion Waiters: I want to start, but…

As the Cleveland Cavaliers continue talks with the Minnesota Timberwolves about acquiring disgruntled power forward Kevin Love, one of the players who could potentially be dealt is reiterating that he wants his role to be as a starter. In an interview with CSNSW’s Chris Haynes, Waiters stated that not only does he want to be among the Cavaliers’ starting five, he thinks he should...

Things get heated… Training Camp Notes 7.29.14

Apparently I wasn’t the only one who thought yesterday’s practice lacked the competitive fire that we’ve been hearing about. The dial on the intensity knob got turned up on Tuesday. There were bodies flying around. There were footballs thrown at heads. There was pushing and shoving. There was a skirmish that included at least 15-20 players. The tone for the day was set by coach...

Art Modell’s grave waterer to be charged

I don’t believe we posted the video here, but I think most Browns fans heard about it. A Browns fan made a deliberate act of going to Art Modell’s grave and emptying out a catheter in order to urinate on Art Modell’s grave. Regardless of how you feel about the sentiment, there’s little debate as to the legality of such actions and Baltimore County authorities plan to take...

Josh Gordon has reportedly passed 'at least 70 drug tests'

We found out recently that Josh Gordon hired Richard Sherman’s lawyer to help handle his appeal with the NFL. In that case Maurice Suh called into question the specimen collection process and created doubt around the “he-said, he-said” case between the player and the collector. Now, Pro Football Talk is reporting what Josh Gordon’s strategy heading into the appeal on August...

Lebron James was Born to Run

I’ve said it multiple times before on my podcast, but I’ll say it again: I’ve always wanted to see LeBron James play on a team full of young or entering their prime highly athletic players. James has been a part of some great offenses, mainly due to his talent. His final two years as a Cavalier, the team ranked near the top of offensive efficiency and hit threes at a higher...

Indians implementing analytics to study attendance issues

The Cleveland Indians were in the postseason a year ago and are seeing attendance numbers continue to fall on a year-over-year basis. Despite two bouts of October baseball in the last seven seasons, they’re certain to finish outside baseball’s top 20 in attendance for the 12th consecutive year. Alas, the team is taking their use of advanced analytics and implementing a formula...

A look at Kyle Shanahan’s Zone Run Game, Part I: Cleveland Browns Film Room

Another year in Cleveland, another coaching change for the Browns. And yet, like clockwork, training camp rolls around and fans become cautiously optimistic about their team. It is no different this year. “THIS Year. This is it, man! Last year, everyone thought that would be the year, but c’mon, now: You know THIS is the one. This Pettine dude is the real deal. I mean, look at...

LeBron James to appear in Judd Apatow movie, Trainwreck, starring Amy Schumer

LeBron James was caught on set of the new Judd Apatow movie Trainwreck starring Amy Schumer. TMZ (of course) has video of LeBron walking to a car. The film is being shot in New York city. LeBron is far from the only cameo in this movie. Other names listed on the IMDB include John Cena and Method Man. The plot of the film is still a secret, but the movie stars Amy Schumer, Harry Potter...

Anonymous sources, jersey numbers, and peeing on people? While We’re Waiting

Happy Tuesday WFNY! I often like to start my WWWs with a cold open. Perhaps it’s because I like a lot of TV shows that have used them really well over the years, or else I just enjoy a good anecdote. Whatever the case, I enjoy them, but I was struggling to think of one for this week. So I figured I’d start this week with a question for you readers, as I am by nature curious about...

Michael Jordan is “cool with” LeBron’s number change

I can’t believe we’re spending so much time talking about a uniform number, but that’s the case when it involves two of the greatest basketball players of all time. LeBron finally announced another decision over the past few days. He said that he would abandon the number six that he made famous in Miami and bring back the 23 that he wore from the time he was a kid in high school...

Indians “very willing” to trade Justin Masterson

The Cleveland Indians’ season isn’t going according to plan I wouldn’t say. At the same time when they failed to reach a deal with Masterson and pay him as much money as he wanted to be paid, maybe they knew what they were doing. Masterson has struggled mightily this season – his last under contract with the Indians. Masterson was thought to be seeking $17 million per season...

Former Cavalier Mo Williams to Minnesota doesn’t make the most sense

Former Cavaliers all-star point guard Mo Williams signed a deal with Minnesota today. The deal is smallish for one year and $3.75 million. CBS’ James Herbert notes that it’s not the most obvious fit for the Minnesota Timberwolves which obviously has me thinking. The cynical view here is that Minnesota doesn’t need a 31-year-old backup guard. The team probably isn’t going...

Carlos Santana…surprise, surprise….AL Player of the Week

After tearing apart the Kansas City Royals this weekend, it was no shocker that Tribe first baseman/DH Carlos Santana has been named American League Player of the Week. Over his last six games, Carlos has had quite the run. How does 14-23, six homers, three doubles, 10 RBIs, eight runs scored sound to you? Pretty good. With his walking abilities in tow, Santana has reached base 20...

Balancing competition and aggression… Training Camp Notes 07.28.14

Competition. We’ve heard for months that the coaching staff and front office want to see competition for every position. Whether it is a high profile battle between Hoyer and Manziel, or a more subtle one between Kirksey and Robertson, this was going to be a camp marked by competition. And it is. Sort of. Last year, the tone set by coach Rob Chudzinski was a competitive one, but...

Internal Goals: Barkevious Mingo looks forward to his sophomore season

With twelve minutes and twenty-four seconds left in the fourth quarter of a tie game against the Cleveland Browns, Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson harnessed a hand-off from his quarterback, Christian Ponder, and took two quick strides forward, finding himself just inside of his left tackle, Matt Kalil. Peterson, widely considered to be one of the best—if not the...

Supporting cast, contract confidence yields Wiggins-Love answer

Kevin Love. Andrew Wiggins. It’s been exhausting, and we’re looking at four more weeks of it as the No.1 overall pick’s contract clock ticks. Granted, it’s not “LeBron James” exhausting. It’s more nervous excitement. The Cavaliers are going to have three REALLY good players one way or another. I’ve been quite outspoken in my desire to hold onto Andrew Wiggins, and...

Johnny Cleveland was this close to being Johnny Dallas. We know that the Dallas Cowboys selected guard Zach Martin with their first-round pick, but team owner Jerry Jones says that that almost wasn’t the case. Jones went into detail on how tough of a choice it was during Sunday’s edition of NFL Network’s Inside Training Camp Live, saying that Johnny Manziel was very close to...

Tribe Weekend Recap: Santana streaking, rotation turning, and opportunities blown

The Indians couldn’t have picked a worse week to wet themselves. I’ve said this before and I will say it again, the only consistent thing about this team is their inconsistency. Just when you want to believe after they take three of four in Detroit, they come out and lose two of three to the Minnesota Twins in front of losing three of four in Kansas City to the Royals. You just...

Report: Love may not choose to opt into contract with Cavs

There are rumors that he’s demanding a trade to Cleveland and wants to play alongside LeBron James; Cleveland would be the only place he would commit to in the way of a long-term deal, starting...

LeBron’s mind and Kluber’s cutter: While We’re Waiting…

Browns camp is under way, LeBron chose his jersey number and the Indians finally won a game. Happy Monday, kids. Let’s dig in. LeBron James has always had a way to recall certain instances of his on-court life. Having covered him during his final year in Cleveland back in 2010, I was always intrigued by the way he would seemingly flash back to certain second-long frames in his...
