If you know why this t-shirt is awesome, you’re probably from Cleveland. This shot submitted by Dave Irvin shows a t-shirt referencing former Cavs greats Mark Price, Craig Ehlo, Larry Nance, Hot Rod Williams, Brad Daugherty and coach Lenny Wilkens. Or maybe they’re just random dudes named Mark, Craig, Larry, Brad and Lenny who are car fans. *shrugs*

The Cavs sent Anderson Varejao and a conditional first-round pick to the Portland Trail Blazers in a deal that ultimately brought Channing Frye to the team. Varejao spent all 12 of his years in Cleveland. He had his chance to move when LeBron James left, but he chose to stay to help turn the franchise around.
The NBA is a business. And sadly, Andy got the bad end of a business deal. From this Cavs fan, a most sincere thank you for 12 great years in the wine and gold.
For today’s Throwback Thursday entry I ran across this in my drafts. ClevelandChick shared this during last year’s NBA Finals. The Cavs have made quite a few changes recently. Will they make their way back to the Finals this season?

The Cavs ended their three game losing streak last night by besting the Portland Trail Blazers 105-100 at Quicken Loan Arena. They were once again wearing their alternative black-sleeved jerseys. I thought these were the ones that LeBron hated no?
LeBron James led the Cavs to their third consecutive win with an 107-100 victory over the 76ers Monday evening. Along the way he became the youngest player in NBA history to reach the 25,000-point mark!
Yesterday the Cavaliers and Tristan Thompson agreed to a 5-year, $82 million contract. The Cavs will have the highest payroll in NBA history next season, opening training camp next week with a commitment this year of approximately $115 million.
Thompson posted this photo yesterday to his Instagram account:
He had this to say: “It’s been a long summer of grinding and hard work but now it’s back to The Land to take care of some unfinished business. #HappyToBeBack #ALLin”
Quicken Loans Arena, commonly known as “The Q”, is home to Cavaliers, the Lake Erie Monsters and the Gladiators. The arena opened in October 1994 as part of the Gateway Sports and Entertainment Complex .
Figured this would be a good one for Throwback Thursday. Remember a couple of weeks ago when Cleveland was ALL IN for the Cavs? There’s been quite a bit of free agent news since then and things are looking good for the Cavaliers next year.
What do you think… do the Cavs have what it takes to get it done next season?
It’s not my thing, but judging from my social media timelines everyone loves the fact that Kevin Love is part of the ESPN Body issue. I’m about all things CLE and for at least today I’m showing the love… lots of it.
Kevin Love has unfinished business in Cleveland. He took a page out of LeBron James’ book and penned an open letter making his intentions known. If you want to read the full letter you can find it here. But to a Cleveland fan, this is all we needed to hear:
Its looking like the Cavaliers are close to making another couple of signings as well. #ALLinCLE!!!
The NBA Finals are over, but that doesn’t mean the Cavs and LeBron James are not in the news. LeBron is expected to once again work out a one-year contract with a player option for the 2016-17 season. Doing so would allow him to again hold the leverage next summer and sign a new deal after the league’s salary cap and maximum salaries rise due to the NBA’s massive new TV contract. He’s expected to wait until the Cavaliers resolve situations with Kevin Love, Tristan Thompson, Brendan Haywood’s non-guaranteed contract and J.R. Smith before making his new deal official.
The Cavs made an incredible run to the NBA Finals this past year. They posted this image to their Facebook page the night of the last game of the finals with a simple note: “Keep the faith, Cleveland.”
We absolutely will. Thanks for the amazing ride Cavs. We can’t wait for next season!
