Cavs second half: Dion Waiters addition

Waiters' explosion in the R/S game is likely to draw some extra atention to him during the second half of the season. Some casual observers will have undoubtably been surprised given his sub par...

Cavs vs Blazers- Dropping the Deuce

Cavs are 2-1 on their road trip and a mere 15 made 3-pointers away from being 3-0, so lets bring the noise in Portland! When I wrote this steaming pile of crap as a preview to their first match...

The biggest gain in landing Deng

He can score, he can rebound, he can play D. He is generous to charities and is a locker room leader. Luol Deng is a terrific land for the Cavs, but as far as on the court production I think the...

Thoughts on a basic draft rating system

After all the arguments about how bad/not bad Grant's drafting has been I thought I would sketch out a simple system for rating draft picks within their own draft. This is what I have come up with...

Why Chicago won't trade Deng for cap relief

The Eastern Conference wasn't such a mess a few years ago. In LBJ's first year with the Heat the East, while still weak in the middle, was very strong on top. The Celtics were still together and...

The Negotiation

Early, as he always was, the well dressed man took his seat. In his early 40s and exceptionally tall, but moving with smoothness of a former player himself, he settles into his chair. He knew he...

Andrew Bynum: A rebuttle

I'm unavailable for a few days and this site falls apart like this? Front page stories suggesting we cut Bynum? Seriously what happened around here? Wait, what? You didn't notice I was gone for...

Cavs vs Bucks- Baconbacon's game preview

OK Cavs fans, time to shake off the sting of the Portland loss and return to winning. Tonight we face off against the Milwaukee "doing the best/worst job of tanking" Bucks. The Bucks have had a...

Cavs Vs Blazers Preview- Explicing the Inexplicable

Why is Portland so good? Why is everyone ignoring this question? Early in the season it was "is Portland good, or is it an easy schedule?" but as the wins piled up against quality teams like the P...

Fun with non Cavs Asik trades

Trade 1: The Suns are surprising the league at 14-9 and are rumored to be shopping some of their potential 4 1st rounders this draft. So here's the trade Suns get: Asik, Ronnie Brewer and A...

Rudy Gay's impact on Sacremento's protected 1st round pick

Ok, I am going to start right out and admit this is a super optimistic take on Gay's impact with Sacramento. Most likely what I write doesn't come to pass and the Kings find themselves with a...

Stick to the Plan

I am apparently in the minority that think this Cavs season is going great. Actually I might be the only one and I admit my perspective needs a little explaining (or heavy drug usage) to...

An offensive Bynum post

Great news for Cavs fans as Bynum looked goooooooooood last night. He started, he broke the 20 min mark and he put up a very nice line of 11/6/2/2. There were two issues with his offensive...

The Cavs are tired

This is a short note on the Cavs so far. I've read several comments about the Cavs being tired and potentially overworked. There might be some truth to this as their schedule has been unfavorable...

CJ Miles

I had some fun writing about CJ Miles yesterday, but the truth is every Cavs fan is giddy with how CJ has played so far this season. In a sample size of 82 mins he has put up a MVP contention...

State of the contenders- BRK

So much Cavs talk, but really what is Cavs talk without measuring them against other playoff contenders? BRK- While a 1-2 record this early in the season isn't a harbinger of doom it is a...

CJ Miles has a conversation with Mike Brown

Summer of 2013: The day after the Cavs pick up CJ Miles' option for the '13/14 season. Location: Coach Brown's office CJ Knocks at the open door CJ: Hey coach, just wanted to say how...

Baconbacon grades the offseason

Amin Elhassan just did a typically terrible (that is typical of sports journalism in general) job in describing the Cavs postseason. You can sum up the ridiculousness with his thoughts on Bynum's...

Baconbaon is a massive homer

My prediction- the Cavs are the 6 seed in the East this season. To get there we simply go back to last season and frankly the Cavs were terrible last season. 1. PG- We had an ALL-STAR PG! On...

Is this what Chris Grant is working on?

Rumors of something big, the Cavs making no moves that tie up any cap room right now despite having almost 30 million to work with. . . The GSW make a pitch to Dwight Howard despite being 10...

Andrew Bynum- your thoughts

The prospect of signing Bynum is drawing way to much knee jerk reaction, so I will put it this way. If the Cavs give Bynum the 5 year Max (via S&T) I think we all agree that this is a...

Baconbacon puts his finger in the hole...

The draft is over and we all have questions. Are we really running Gee/Miles out there as our starting SF combo? Can Bennett earn playing time there? Do we have a big that can protect the rim? ...

BPA vs Need: TLDC

Its an age old question for fans when it comes to the draft. Do we take the most talented guy out there or would we get more value taking a player that will slot right into our program? Through...

FanPost

The big reveal

Player B is Ben McLemore, Player A is O.J. Mayo. I pretty much throw up in my mouth whenever McLemore is listed as a possibility for the Cavs for this reason. I will admit that overall...

Same two guys- who is a better 3pt shooter

Ok, these guys have been bugging me all week. They seriously won't let go of these petty arguments. Now they are all up in each others grill (grills are still a thing, right?) about who is a...

Who is a better athlete

Two young basketball stars got in an argument today, and they asked me to mediate. Each claims he is a better athlete than the other and I don't see a way to break the argument so I am posting a...

More Anthony Bennett!!!

With the drought of information regarding what CG will do with the #1 pick Anthony Bennett has become the flavor of the week- I already did a small piece on Bennett before the Cavs landed the top...

The 13th pick, a simple solution

The major issue for the Cavs in acquiring the 13th pick from DAL is the fact that their most likely use would be to package that pick to get a top 10 selection. Due to the possibility that DAL...

Bacon Rules: #4 A perfect World

A couple of seasons from now Kyrie could well be the best offensive PG in the league, Dion is drawing broad comparisons to Dwayne Wade as his FT attempts jump and he is scoring 23 ppg, T...

And Your 2013/14 starting SF is . . .

Drum-roll please Vince Carter. Obviously not a slam dunk but much more likely than Shawn Marion, let me explain. First and foremost DAL clearly has a pretty short time frame to win a...
