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.

What do you think… do the Cavs have what it takes to get it done next season?

Imagine

Imagine if LeBron came home to Cleveland.

Imagine if the team struggle early but finished the regular season strong.

Imagine if their big man went down, but they still found a way to power through the Eastern Conference.

Imagine if they faced the top seed in the Finals.

Imagine if they pushed Game 1 to overtime but lost another star to injury.

Imagine if everyone counted them out.

Imagine if they shocked the world and took the next two games.

Imagine if fatigue caught up with them, and the lost Games 4 and 5.

Imagine if they defied odds, logic and the basketball gods to come back and win the series in 7.

Except this isn’t Hollywood. It’s Cleveland.

Nothing is given. Everything is earned.

Just do it.

Nothing Is Given

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.”

‘Not Enough Grit’ ~ The Plain Dealer

I try to keep things very positive here on TCB. We all know that our beloved Cleveland Cavaliers came up short last night in the NBA Finals. They battled to the very end. Playing essentially with only 7 guys the Cavs made a run that has galvanized the city and has us excited for the future.

The Plain Dealer on its front cover chose to tell a different story.

Not Enough Grit - Plain Dealer

I won’t go into this a whole lot, but this is really upsetting to me. They had a chance to embrace the city and this team and they chose to go this route. All I’ll say is this… Does it surprise anyone that no one subscribes any more?

The Nature Boy In Cleveland

Nature Boy Ric Flair was in the house last night for Game 4 of the NBA Finals. As a pro wrestling fan for the past 30 years this was totally awesome for me. WOOOOOO!  One question… Why is Moondog wearing underwear?

Coming Home, Tied At One

No Kyrie Irving. No Kevin Love. Never fear… we’ve got the best basketball player on the planet and his Australian buddy Matthew Dellavedova. Last night in Oakland, the Cavaliers won a NBA Finals game for the first time in franchise history. With that victory, the series comes home to Cleveland tied 1-1.

Kyrie Out For Season – It’s Delly Time

Kyrie Irving has a fractured kneecap. He’ll undergo season-ending surgery in the next couple of days is projected to be out three to four months. In the meantime, the Cavs have a NBA Finals to contend with and in all likelihood Matthew Dellavedova will get the bulk of Irving’s minutes for the remainder of the series.

Kyrie posted this to Instagram:

I want to thank everyone for the well wishes. Saddened by the way I had to go out but it doesn’t take away from being apart of a special playoff run with my brothers. Truly means a lot for all the support and love. I Gave it everything I had and have no regrets. I love this game no matter what and I’ll be back soon. To my brothers: You already know what the deal is. And to Delly: “ICE it down del” *Big Perk voice *

I know I speak for all of Cleveland when I say “Get well soon Kyrie. You’ll be sorely missed.”

Game 2 of the NBA Finals is Sunday night (6/7/2015) when the Cavs are once again at Golden State (8:00 PM on ABC).
