Why I'm a Bolton Wanderers Fan - by LOV Writers

Mainly because the boss said we have to tell you Welcome to the refreshed Lion of Vienna Suite! To celebrate the new look and feel of our sports communities, we’re sharing stories of how and why we became fans of our favorite teams. If you’d like to share your story, head over to the FanPosts to write your own post. It's a funny thing, football. It unites us and it divides us. It brings together people from all over the world, and makes us despise others with similar passions. Bolton Wanderers is our chosen poison. It would've been nice for us to all be Barcelona supporters, but some...

Ty Lue says the Celtics are harder to plan for than the Warriors

Ty Lue says the Celtics are harder to plan for than the Warriors

Some interesting comments from the Cavs’ head coach. According to Cavs coach Tyronn Lue, the Boston Celtics are harder to defend to gameplan for than the Golden State Warriors. Yes, really. "The stuff they're running, it's harder to defend than Golden State's (offense) for me, as far as the actions and all the running around and all the guys who are making all the plays, so it's a totally different thing," Lue said per cleveland.com. "Like, they hit the post, Golden State runs splits and all that stuff but these guys are running all kinds of (stuff). And Brad's (Stevens) got them moving...

How to watch Game 4 of Cavs-Celtics

How to watch Game 4 of Cavs-Celtics

Will the Cavs rebound from a weird Game 3? It’s hard to imagine tonight’s Game 4 playing out like Game 3 did for the Cleveland Cavaliers. It’s hard to see Marcus Smart turning into Steph Curry again. It’s hard to see the Cavs, if they get up by 21 points like they did in Game 3, blowing that lead over the span of a half. And it’s hard to see LeBron James playing as bad as he did in Game 3 again. In short: Boston deserves credit for their effort and for winning, but it’s hard to imagine the Cavs playing like that again. In all likelihood, Cleveland will roll in this game and...

Photo: The Browns’ first round picks are at Game 3

Some Cleveland love ahead of Cavs-Celtics. Sometimes at Cavs games, stars of the city’s other teams make an appearance. Browns corner Joe Haden, for instance, is a regular. Indians stars Jason Kipnis and Michael Brantley are too. And recently, Browns second round pick DeShone Kizer attended a game and received a huge pop from the crowd. At Game 3, the Browns’ top three picks from this year’s draft - defensive end Myles Garrett, safety Jabrill Peppers and tight end David Njoku - are all at a Cavs game for the first time. The squad's at The Q ready to #DefendTheLand...

How to watch Cavs-Celtics Game 3

The series heads to the The Land with Boston on the ropes down their best player. The Cleveland Cavaliers, up 2-0 on the Boston Celtics in the Eastern Conference Finals, are back home at Quicken Loans Arena Sunday. The last time the Cavs played a home game? That was way back on May 3, a full 18 days ago. In that time, the Cavs have played a whopping four games. Expect a loud Q crowd Sunday. Game 3 should be more of the same for Cleveland. The Cavs have been dominant for almost every minute of the Eastern Conference Finals and it would be shocking to see that change Sunday. This feels even...

Adam Silver isn’t concerned about the Cavs and Warriors’ dominance

Adam Silver isn’t concerned about the Cavs and Warriors’ dominance

Silver, while wanting parity, says the basketball is “fantastic” to watch. There has been some talk about whether or not the dominance of the Cavaliers and Warriors over the rest of the league is a good thing. Those who say the dominance is a bad thing point to games being predictable and boring. Currently, both teams look to be well on their ways to sweeping all three of their respective series en route to a third straight NBA Finals showdown. On Friday, NBA commissioner Adam Silver shot down those concerns in an interview with ESPN’s Hannah Storm that also touched on team’s...

One play that explains the Cavs’ Game 2 win over the Celtics

One play that explains the Cavs’ Game 2 win over the Celtics

LeBron chasing down opposing players LeBron James, seemingly every game, has a play like this. The opposing team — in this case, it’s the Boston Celtics — have an opposing player break free on the break en route what looks like an easy layup. In this case, that player — Avery Bradley — goes with ease, like he just assumes there’s no one around. And then here comes LeBron, zooming in to deny Bradley’s layup attempt early in Friday’s Game 2: At this point in the game, Boston was still in it. A nine-point deficit in the first quarter isn’t that much in the grand scheme of...

Final Score: Cavs obliterate Celtics 130-86, take 2-0 series lead

Game 2 was never close and the series heads back to Cleveland the Cavs in control. Somehow, Friday night’s Game 2 against the Boston Celtics was even easier for the Cleveland Cavaliers than their Game 1 win. In a 130-86 win, the Cavs lead from their first field goal of the game — a Kyrie Irving floater 57 seconds into the game. In the first, Cleveland outscored Boston 32-18. In the second, with LeBron James back his normal place with the bench to start the period, the Cavs outscored the Celtics 40-13 to take a 72-31 lead at the half. James lead the Cavs with 22 first half points, Kevin...

LeBron James not named finalist for MVP

LeBron James not named finalist for MVP

Russell Westbrook, Kawhi Leonard and James Harden are the three finalists. On Friday, before Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals, the NBA announced the finalists for all of their major awards. LeBron James, considered to be in the race all season, is not one of the three finalists. The three finalists for the award are Rockets guard James Harden, Thunder guard Russell Westbrook and Spurs forward Kawhi Leonard. SB Nation’s Rockets blog, The Dream Shake, did 100-person media panel that predicts that Westbrook will win the award. James’ absence is likely due to the Cavaliers’...
