I love Delly and will never forget his tremendous effort in the 2015 NBA Finals. Delly played himself to exhaustion, which is almost unheard of in any sport. That said, the Cavs can't afford to match that offer IMO. Best wishes to one of my favorite Cavaliers! Delly will be missed.
I'm happy for Mozgov but don't see a future for him with the Cavs based on Coach Lue's philosophy. I hope it works out well for him and appreciate his efforts in Cleveland. Go Cavs!
That's something I'd have never known even though I am in SC. I am not much of a baseball fan but did catch myself looking for an Indians score tonight to see if they won their 13th straight. A good story always catches my attention. Coastal Carolina winning it all will most likely rank right up there with great sport stories of the year in 2016.
Thanks for sharing some background on Coastal Carolina's baseball program. I didn't know they were a perennial top-25 team. That gives their winning the championship today some context and helps explain how the Chanticleers were 6-0 in elimination games this post-season. That kind of character is developed over time. Congratulations to Coastal Carolina.
Good luck to Joker Phillips. It sounds like he will more than handle his own in recruiting. Go Bucks!
Good luck to him though I'll never ever understand how any kid who is from Ohio and wanted an OSU offer commits to play for those bastards. Go Bucks! Screw Blue!
IMO, you can blame UM for allowing this asshole to stretch NCAA rules and continually step across all kinds of lines just to prove how competitive he is. Sleepovers, offering 8th graders, and 35 satellite camps in a month immediately come to mind as being WAY out-of-bounds.
I would not be happy or proud at all if Coach Meyer pulled this at OSU. I believe it just shows how desperate those bastards are to be relevant and can only imagine the outrage or contempt they'd show if any other institution in America allowed this to happen. Go Bucks! ^&%$ UM!
Thanks for sharing SVG's thoughts on these types of fouls. IMO, SVG is 100% right.
I hate it. It is great disrespect to the intention of the rules and violates all basic terms of sportsmanship. Fouling a man who has not entered the front court is not part of the flow of the game and should be treated as an intentional foul that results in a technical and possession of the ball. That would end some of the crap we have been watching.
Not every player brings the same skill set to the court. Big men, over time, have not been great free throw shooters. Foul them within the flow of the game and I'm perfectly ok with that. Grabbing a man 80' from the goal makes a complete mockery of the strategy. I am a big Cavaliers fan and hated it when Cleveland employed it against Drummond in the Detroit series. I actually rooted for him to make the free throws.
On the other hand, fouling late to get the ball back IS part of the normal flow of the game. It is a play within the spirit of the rules and though I am no fan of teams parading to the foul line late in games, I can accept it as part of a strategy a team would employ when trailing late in a game.
UV's for everyone. Go Bucks!
It's not surprising reading of the excitement around Coach Jent re-joining the basketball staff. IMO, he is a huge upgrade in a position that is critical in any major program. Go Bucks!
It's such a shame when someone Fikayo's age passes away. My thoughts and prayers are with his family, teammates and friends, and the campus community who have come to know him during his time as a Buckeye.
It's also very cool that both Martell and Davis have deep Ohio roots. IMO, that makes their commitment, in spite of their being out-of-state recruits, very solid. Go Bucks!
The most amazing thing about the addition of Wyatt Davis is that this class may finish even better than any of us could have imagined. It's an especially great to be a Buckeye! Go Bucks!
Incredible! I am very happy for Lebron James, the Cavaliers, the city of Cleveland, and all of NE Ohio who have endured so much heartache for so long. In my lifetime, I've never seen a championship victory with so much meaning to so many people. Enjoy it and be safe. Go Cavs! ALL IN 216! 2016 NBA Champions!
My compliments on your take on tonight's game. Lebron returned to Cleveland to achieve a dream many of us had as kids but few ever get a chance to live.
IMO, this will go down being one of the great sports stories in my lifetime IF the Cavs win tonight. Go Cavs!
ALL IN 216! The Warriors will lose tonight because of their arrogance (thinking they are too good to lose), the loss of Bogat and the back issue with Iguodala have hurt the Warriors from being as diverse with their line-ups and has shrunk their bench/rotation, the Cavs have won 3 of 4 for a reason and not by accident, and most importantly, LBJ and the Cavs are on a mission.
There is much less pressure on the Cavs as underdogs to win on the road tonight. The pressure is clearly on GS and the Cavs do not own what many of us refer to as 'The Curse.'
The Warriors and their crowd will be juiced to start the game tonight. The Cavs need to weather that storm just as they did in Game 5. Go Cavs!
Thank you Birm for your time, energy, passion, and numerous contributions to 11W. Like many here, I got spoiled waiting for your daily summary of all things related to Buckeye recruiting.
While happy for the opportunities that surely lie ahead for you, your moving on is certainly a loss for THE best Buckeye site in the land. Best wishes to you and yours. As always, Go Bucks!
Johnny...thanks for a great read. Lebron's return to Cleveland was about embracing the challenge of winning a title. Richard Jefferson gave fans a very small but insightful perspective into the team chemistry of the Cavs and the mission LBJ is on. .
The time is at hand and the King is ready to re-claim his place at the top of the mountain. Go Cavs!.
Thanks for sharing. This ^^^ is a VERY cool video! ALL IN! GO CAVS!
The Cavs only need to win one right now. I really believe the play of Lebron and Kyrie has done wonders for the supporting cast and expect a great effort from the Cavs Thursday evening at the Q.
I also believe the Cavs will see winning last night on the road as a second chance. Teams often come through when that happens, and the pressure in a Game 7 will sit squarely on the shoulders of GS. I believe Lebron cements his legacy in the next 5 days as an all-time great in the NBA by bringing a championship back to NE Ohio.
I was actually so pumped after the game last night that I couldn't sleep so this surely isn't a dream. It may be pure fantasy but if so I am ALL IN! Go Cavs!.
It's great that Tate Martell will be a Buckeye and about time we give Coach Beck major props for the work he has done on the recruiting trail. What a great time to be a Buckeye! Go Bucks!
Great news on Tate Martell and another great addition to the '17 class! The good news on the recruiting front just keeps flowing. Go Bucks!
Maurice Washington just received his 1st offer this weekend and it was from OSU? Did I read that correctly? Good Lord. In a day and age where 8th graders are on the recruiting radar, how does this kid NOT get any offers prior to this weekend? He's very elusive, has great vision, and good speed. His tape is very impressive. Go Bucks!
Errors or not, the theme of the message to UM and Harbaugh to "GO F*CK YOURSELF" is right on point. Go Bucks! Go Silver Knights! Screw Blue!
