Behind the Sadness: Where are the 2011-2014 Cleveland Cavaliers Now?

The last four seasons of Cavalier basketball were headlined by some truly terrible players. With The Dark Years now firmly behind us, we take one last chance to remember some of the worst players from the years after LeBron left, from Omri Casspi to Donald Sloan. The Cleveland Cavaliers won 97 games between the 2010-2011 and 2013-2014 seasons. This was one of the worst records in the NBA over that span. We saw some truly deplorable basketball over this span, and there was very little to be positive about, outside of the drafting and play of Kyrie Irving. With LeBron James and Kevin Love...

LeBron James, Kevin Love forged friendship at London Olympics

INDEPENDENCE: When he introduced Kevin Love to Cleveland on Tuesday, Cavs General Manager David Griffin called it a culmination of 18 months of trade negotiations. Truthfully, however, the genesis to this moment dates back even further, to the bus rides and countless locker room discussions at the 2012 London Olympics. It was in those casual moments LeBron James began trying to cultivate a relationship with Love. James told Love he was going to be the reason the Americans won gold, consistently praising him and telling him he didn’t realize just how good he was. Despite all the compliments,...

The useful mind games of James Harden, ‘the best all-around basketball player in the NBA’

So it turns out, the Rockets have no reason to worry. Never did. They might not have gotten Chris Bosh. They did not keep Chandler Parsons. They failed miserably at having LeBron James be born nearby. But they have something the Heat, Mavericks and Cavaliers do not. “The best all-around basketball player in the NBA” […]

Q: Why could the Heat not have signed LeBron James and traded him to Cleveland for some future first-round picks, as Cleveland received from Miami four years ago? Was their some type of rule that prevented this, or did the Heat miss out on an opportunity due to egos or hard feelings? -- Brian,

Jason Lloyd: Cavaliers could be on the cusp of building a new NBA dynasty

In a city built on sports heartbreak and despair, in a town with a river named Chagrin, it’s difficult to process days (and summers) like this. The Cavaliers can’t stop scratching winning lottery tickets. One magical essay and one well-timed trade has turned Cleveland into an NBA mega power again. Kevin Love is a member of the Cavaliers, assuring them of beginning this season with more talent than any of LeBron James’ first seven years here. But there’s something else involved, something that has been overlooked amidst the euphoria of the moment.This is only the beginning. Cleveland...

Tom Powers: Timberwolves get athleticism; Cavaliers get second banana
