Lessons in Love: Mo Williams

The Chris Bosh post in this series ended on a little bit of a sour note with the tentative conclusion that Love could be expected to see a decline in efficiency, usage and assists based on what...

Lessons in Love: Chris Bosh edition

As Cavs fans we are pretty lucky to be landing Kevin Love, but we are also lucky that during this offseason of projections and chatter we have some unbelievable comps to draw from to make guesses...

Tristan Thompson grows amongst chaos

Nothing's been easy for Tristan Thompson in Cleveland. Will that change this year?

Contender level SFs and Chandler Parsons

Some quick notes to start: 1. I am using Conference finalists as a proxy for "contenders"- this isn't perfect but it eliminates a lot of messy defining that would probably lead to a similar list. ...

Trade assets and the Cavs advantage in landing Love

The off season is just far too fun when the Cavs win the #1 pick. So much to argue about! Today I am focused on why the Cavs are in a better position than almost any other team, and maybe any...

Ripples of the Lottery

Some off the cuff thoughts about the non-Cavs teams and the effects of the lottery. Pick #2- The Bucks- If the Cavs pass on Embiid the Bucks will likely be putting Sanders on the trading block....

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

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? ...

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...
