Two Years Ago Today – Cleveland… This is For You!

Two years ago today, this happened. For years Clevelanders had been dealing with things like The Drive. The Fumble. The Shot. The Decision. Then on that fateful Father’s Day evening, LeBron James and crew did the impossible. They brought a championship back to Cleveland. It still doesn’t seem real and even though we’ve not fared nearly as well against the Warriors the last two years, nothing will ever tarnish that night. 

I got to share it with my wife, kids, neighbors and all of Cleveland. It was a special night that will never be undone. 

That’s, most certainly, Cleveland Baby.

Charlie Sheen Has Nothing On Cleveland

There’s been quite a bit of winning going on lately in Cleveland and that trend continued last night at the ESPY Awards.

Two of My Loves Combined

If you know me at all you know I’m not only a huge Cleveland sports fan but I’m also a life long professional wrestling fan. Triple H (the real life COO of the WWE as well as an on-air performer) just tweeted this photo… and it’s perfect…

He had this to say: “An unprecedented comeback and a long overdue @NBA Championship… THAT is something to celebrate. Congrats @cavs!”

The champs… are… here!

The Moment We’ve Waited a Lifetime For

The Drive. The Fumble. The Shot. The Decision.

I could go on and on but this morning I don’t have to. The Cleveland Cavaliers did something last night that had never been done. They came back from a 3-1 deficit to win the first NBA title in team history. I’m getting goosebumps just thinking about it.

The Moment

I got to share it with my wife, kids, neighbors and all of Cleveland. It was a special night. The city is still buzzing this morning.

That… most certainly… is Cleveland Baby!!!

That Dunk Though

After a couple of lackluster performances in the first two games of the NBA Finals, the Cavaliers came out firing on all cylinders in Game 3 and gave the Golden State Warriors a good ol fashion beat down. The play of the game (there were several) was an alley oop from Tristan Thompson to LeBron James that he hammered home from WAY above the rim. It was a spectacle to see.

The Finals Are Back

The Cavs are back home in the NBA Finals (albeit down 0-2) to Golden State. Tonight they look to get back into the series with a victory on their home court. This photo was posted last year on Instagram by officialclevelandsports when they said, “The calm before the storm! Let’s be loud and proud tonight! Let’s show the world what Cleveland is really about #IBelieve #ClevelandAgainstTheWorld”

Cavs Historic Night In Game 2

The Cleveland Cavaliers broke the NBA record for 3-pointers in a game when they drained 25 threes during a 123-98 drubbing of the Atlanta Hawks in Game 2 of the Easter Conference Semi-Finals.

JR Smith posted this photo to his Facebook account with a single sentence: “I think this is a credit of just how hard we work.”

Cavs Sweep Into The Second Round

The Cavaliers completed a first round sweep of the Detroit Pistons last night winning their opening round series 4-0. Kyrie Irving and LeBron James combined to average more than 50 points per game in the series. The Cavs now rest waiting for the winner of the Celtics and Hawks series which is knotted at two games a piece.

Sea of Wine & Gold

It’s almost time for the NBA Playoffs once again and the Cavs have secured the #1 spot in the East. Last year, Instagram user jennifersteer had this to say when she snapped this shot: “A sea of wine. #AllinCLE #NBAFinals #Cleveland”

How do you think the Cavaliers will do in this year’s post season? Do they have what it takes to bring a title to C-town?

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?
