You May Be From Cleveland If…

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*

Cavs Say Goodbye To Anderson Varejao

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.

Anderson Varejao

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.

Will We Make Our Way Back?

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?

Cavaliers Fire David Blatt

Even with the best record in the Eastern Conference at 30-11, the Cavaliers fired head coach David Blatt today. Assistant coach Tyronn Lue will be the team’s new coach.

Not quite sure what to make of this move. Cavs GM David Griffin said the decision was made to ensure that the team had the best chance of bringing championships to Northeast Ohio. I certainly hope so.

Thanks for your time in Cleveland Mr. Blatt. At least from this fan it was very much appreciated. Here’s to you Mr. Lue. You’ve got unfinished business to take care of.

Cavs Back To Winning Ways

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?

Kevin Love & The Cavs Are Back

The Cavaliers started the 2015-2016 NBA season on Tuesday by stumbling out of the blocks and losing to the Bulls. They came back in a big way last night by crushing the Grizzlies.

Thompson posted this photo yesterday to his Instagram account:

Welcome back Tristan… time to go to work.

Remember When Cleveland Was All In?

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.

Mo Williams ~ I’m Coming Home

It wasn’t quite the news story that we got when LeBron came home, but Mo Williams made a splash on Twitter yesterday when he said those three words Clevelanders love to hear: “I’m coming home!!!!”

Kevin Love Has Unfinished Business In Cleveland

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:

Off Season Moves For LeBron & The Cavs

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.

Keep The Faith Cleveland

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.”
