Pics: Warhawk Kyrie 1s debut at Nike’s EYBL Basketball Academy

The Nike EYBL Basketball Academy has seen appearances from all of the major Swoosh brand athletes, including a LeBron James-led yoga session and more, but may be getting the most burn for the amount of swag that participants are walking away with following their time in Santa Monica, California. As has become customary in 2015, participants at the Nike Basketball Academy have been...

Next Up: Indians vs. Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg

After being swept by the Baltimore Orioles this past weekend, the Cleveland Indians are now 33-41, leaving them 12 games behind first place Kansas City in the AL Central. The Tribe is reeling, inviting metaphors of the staggered boxer with wobbly legs and blinking eyes or the slow motion balletic scenes of Robert De Niro as Jake LaMotta, moving to the ethereal music of Pietro Mascagni’s...

Mike Evans blames Josh McCown for only catching 12 touchdowns

Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans hauled in 68 passes for 1,051 yards and 12 touchdowns, but says Josh McCown kept him from being even better. In an interview with USA TODAY, Evans, when comparing himself to New York’s Odell Beckham Jr., had the following to say: “The quarterback would just look me off, and then I’d be dead,” Evans said. “And I didn’t understand...

Throw like a girl

Any of us that have played Little League likely remember a similar moment when a girl was either placed on your team or showed up on the opposing team. Tensions were raised and awareness was heightened as no one wanted to be the player that gave up a hit or was put out by the girl. Melissa Mayeux, a shortstop on the French Under-18 junior national team, likely knows that moment most...

Reminder of how valuable Kevin Love is to the Cavs

The Cleveland Cavaliers made a run to the NBA Finals without Kevin Love, and with the power forward looking for a maximum-level contract, some fans are wondering why the team should pay an injury-prone big man who failed to live up to incredibly unfair expectations. Thankfully, we have ESPN.com’s Kevin Pelton to remind us all—you know, since we haven’t seen Kevin play in quite...

LeBron and Kevin Love met in Los Angeles

Prepare your private plane trackers and get ready to read into every tea leaf you can find: NBA silly season is upon us. Around this time last year, Cavs fans took it upon themselves to track Dan Gilbert’s plane in an effort to figure out if he and LeBron James were breaking bread in Florida. Now? We have a photo emerging from a LeBron James-Kevin Love poolside meeting in Los Angeles...

Brandon Moss on Tribe fan angst: “I can’t blame them”

Fans, the Tribe hear you loud and clear. Losing seven of their last nine games and falling 12 games behind the AL Central-leading Kansas City Royals, the Indians have been in a downward spiral since the minute the Cleveland Cavaliers handed them the baton of fan attention. They have scored 66 runs in June, the fewest in the league. On the season, they’re hitting just .224 with...

C-Cap Recap: Two Nothin’s Is Nothin’

Terry Francona’s ever-present windbreaker may as well be an invisibility cloak considering how little criticism he’s getting for the plodding parade of mediocrity that is the 2015 Cleveland Indians. I’m not saying he really deserves any blame, mind you. But after a potentially spirit-breaking series sweep at the hands of the Baltimore Orioles this weekend (including a Sunday...

NBA “News”: LeBron James opting out, intends to re-sign with Cavs

In the latest bit of NBA news that was likely decided months ago, Cleveland Cavaliers star LeBron James has informed the team that he will opt out of his current contract, and also that he intends to re-sign with the Cavs. ESPN’s Brian Windhorst was first with the news. LeBron James has notified the Cavs he will opt out of his contract and become a free agent, sources told ESPN...

NBA Free Agency: Cavaliers sign Keifer Sykes, John Shurna

The 24-48 hours after the NBA Draft always leads to a fury of activity as teams scoop up undrafted agents from around the country and around the globe. Famously, that’s how the Cleveland Cavaliers signed folk hero Matthew Dellavedova back in 2013 out of St. Mary’s. The Cavs have been active again this year, even after drafting three second-rounders on Thursday night. According...

Ricky Rubio: Cavs would have won the title with Kevin Love healthy (Video)

Minnesota Timberwolves point guard and former teammate of Cleveland Cavaliers power forward Kevin Love told FOX Sports 1 that the Wine and Gold would have been the ones to hoist the Larry O’Brien trophy if not for the team’s ill-timed bout with injuries. “I think so,” said Rubio of the Cavs winning. “Kevin Love makes a difference. He is a great power forward who can shoot...

Next Up: Indians vs. Orioles at Camden Yards

Beautiful Camden Yards changed everything, and a fair share of the credit for that goes to Janet Marie Smith. Who is she, you might ask. To properly answer that, we must first look back at what came before the Orioles played in the shadow of the B&O Warehouse near Baltimore’s Inner Harbor. Baltimore’s history with their baseball and football franchises is similar in many...

An Indians Prospect Q&A with Jeff Ellis of Scout.com

About 20 years ago, WFNY’s Andrew Clayman and Scout.com’s Jeff Ellis used to sit in the back row of their ninth grade English class, pontificating on the imminent glory of the Cleveland Indians and the many World Series titles that awaited them. Both men are now older, wiser, and in considerably worse shape. And yet, their irrational optimism survives. Clayman’s been telling...

Oh Danny boy, oh Danny boy, we love you so

The NFL held the annual Rookie Symposium in Aurora, Ohio the week of June 22, 2015. The star of that symposium — at least in my mind as I have not been shy about my affinity for the defensive tackle — was the 2015 NFL Draft’s number 12 overall pick, Danny Shelton, who continues to balance a cheerful demeanor with a humbling, tragic past.1 So, let us take a moment today to...

The Cleveland Cavaliers, instant nostalgia, and studying sports fans

One of the things that I’m most interested in as a sports fan is the study of sports fandom. In practice, that means never-ending analysis of us as a group, other cities and their sports fans, and also the most insular type of audit, of the guy I see in the mirror. (When I see him, he’s generally making funny faces shaving and brushing teeth.) I know I’ve been doing it non...

Silly seasons, LeBron James and Judd Apatow and Hop Along: While We’re Waiting

Trying to solve that today… While We’re Waiting… Losing my motivation to talk about silly things and the Browns are doing kind of normal things… Maybe I’m getting old and crotchety, but I just can’t bring myself to write about a lot of things with the zeal that I once did...

NBA Draft: Cavs select Cedi Osman, Rakeem Christmas, Sir’Dominic Pointer in second round

After trading the No. 24 pick Tyus Jones to the Minnesota Timberwolves, the Cavaliers made a trio of selections in the second round. With the 31st pick, the Cavaliers went international in a likely draft stash by drafting guard/forward Cedi Osman out of Turkey. They followed that up by drafting a more familiar name in Syracuse big man Rakeem Christmas. And finally, they chose St...

NBA Draft: Cavs take Tyus Jones at No. 24, trade him to Minnesota for No. 31, 36, future 2nd

The Cleveland Cavaliers looked like they may be adding another Duke point guard to the backcourt, but they decided to deal the selection of Tyus Jones at No. 24 to the Minnesota Timberwolves for picks No. 31 and No. 36 as well as a future second-round choice. These newly acquired picks are obviously second round selections, which do not have a cap hold tied to them, so the...

NBA Draft: Buckeye star D’Angelo Russell drafted by Lakers

In a small surprise, the Los Angeles Lakers used the second pick in the 2015 NBA Draft to select Ohio State guard D’Angelo Russell. Russell was selected over big man Jahlil Okafor, who went No. 3 to Philadelphia after the other top post threat, Karl-Anthony Towns, was made the top selection by Minnesota. Russell, a 6-5 combo guard, averaged 19.3 points on 44.9 percent shooting...

A very special NBA Draft version of “Wonderwall”

It’s NBA Draft day. Inspired by a Twitter conversation earlier today among Cavs fans/bloggers about the English rock band Oasis and their most played (by far) song, “Wonderwall,” I have composed a very special NBA Draft version. Pick up that acoustic guitar you know three chords on and play along at home. The original, in case you never walked by a college quad or didn...
