Report: Cavs Fire GM Chris Grant

Anthony Bennett, Chris Grant

Perhaps it was this past June’s draft where the Cavaliers surprised many by selecting Anthony Bennett with the No. 1 overall pick. Maybe it’s the whispers Kyrie Irving will walk when his rookie deal ends in the summer of 2015.

There are a lot of reasons to choose from, which is why it’s not a big surprise the Cavs fired general manager Chris Grant today. Read More »

Luol Deng Is Ready To Save Cleveland’s Lost Season

Luol Deng

Twenty-two thousand, eight hundred and eighty-two minutes. For nearly ten years Luol Deng filled the small forward position for the Chicago Bulls, blossoming into a premier two-way All-Star along the way. Derrick Rose may be the clear face of the franchise, but Deng was the heart and soul. Before Rose it was Deng, who back when Scott Skiles was roaming the sidelines, brought the Bulls back to the Promised Land of the playoffs in three consecutive seasons. It was Deng who developed into the secondary scoring threat that Carlos Boozer failed to become. It was Deng who kept the Bulls afloat while Rose rehabbed his torn ACL (while Deng suffered and battled through numerous injuries himself, including nearly dying from a mistreated spinal tap). It was Deng who played a seemingly endless amount of minutes (37 or more minutes per game in each season since 2009-2010; twice leading the league in minutes per game, both in 2011-2012 and 2012-2013), becoming Tom Thibodeau‘s most reliable AND favorite player. Now, at age 28 and after 22,882 minutes, it is Deng who finds himself playing against the Chicago Bulls. Read More »

Which Team Has Been A Bigger Bust This Year: Cleveland Or Memphis?

Dion Waiters

With everyone so focused on the double travesties going down in the Big Apple — New York is ready to can Mike Woodson and Brooklyn has resorted to all types of shady practices involving soda to try to win games — two other underachievers have gotten away relatively unscathed. Cleveland was supposed to be one of the up-and-coming teams in the East this year. Instead, in one of the worst conferences we’ve ever seen, they’re still just 9-15 and out of the playoff picture.

Fantastic Nene No-Look Pass In Wizards Win

Nene No Look

The Wizards dominated most of their game against Cleveland tonight. Both teams have experienced some well publicized player-only meetings, but only Wiz coach Randy Wittman appears to be on the hot seat. Thankfully for him, the Wiz shot out to an 18-point halftime lead with some excellent play by Nene and survived a comeback by Cleveland in the fourth. The big Brazilian delightfully dished a no-look touch-pass. Read More »
