Barack Obama: J.R. Smith is having a great season

You read that correctly. Barack Obama — President of the United States, Commander-in-Chief of the U.S. Armed Forces, leader of the free world — has publicly stated his opinion on Cavalier guard J.R.

Many fans may sometimes forget at times, but professional athletes have actual lives (outside of sports) as well, just like every other person in the world. For Cleveland Indians infielder Mike Aviles, baseball became an afterthought earlier in May, when his four year-old daughter, Adriana, was diagnosed with leukemia. In support of Aviles’ family and Adriana specifically (who...

Hanging By A Moment

What do you remember about those 48 points LeBron James scored in Game 5? Think hard. It was eight years ago, after all. I’m sure plenty of people remember that LeBron James scored 29 of the Cleveland Cavaliers’ final 30 points1 on that fateful night against the Detroit Pistons. But think harder. What else do you remember? What do you feel? There’s a certain singularity of...

Jonah Keri: I think the Indians will surge back into the playoff hunt

At least one prominent baseball mind thinks that the Cleveland Indians’ recent hot streak is a sign of more good things to come.

Where LeBron's amazing happens

“What you did for this team and for this city coming back the way that you did … thanks for all that you do,” said Cleveland Cavaliers head coach David Blatt to LeBron James late in his team’s Game 4 series-clinching victory over the Atlanta Hawks. I don’t know about you, but I would have said the same thing to James. He has led a battered and bruised Cavs team to the...

Why wasn’t Dwight Howard suspended for shot to Bogut?

Dwight Howard has nothing to do with Cleveland sports and due to the fact that his team, the Houston Rockets, trails Golden State 3-1 in the Western Conference Finals, he probably won’t for this season. That said, Dwight Howard was involved in a play against Andrew Bogut that was eerily similar to the one that J.R. Smith was involved during the Celtics series with Jae Crowder....

Ball Played: Indians cannot hang on by their fingernails in loss

Going into Tuesday night’s game against the Texas Rangers, it had been mentioned but not truly quantified that the Cleveland Indians offense has been much improved during the month of May. Much of the offensive improvement is rightfully attributed to the outstanding month of Jason Kipnis, but the overall team statistics have risen more than can be solely attributed to one player...

Cavs bring the good kind of chaos to Cleveland

It could only best be described as chaos. The playing floor of Quicken Loans Arena was covered in notecard-size wine and gold-colored confetti. Cavalier players were slowly filing off, having taken countless photographs with teammates, friends, and family, every one of them with an NBA Finals hat perched atop their head.

So are the Cleveland Cavaliers the bad guys of the NBA now? It wasn’t enough to have LeBron James, the biggest baddest big bad in basketball.
