Also, sorry for being a dumb/smartass, just joking around. I did give you the upvote for teaching me something new. I never would've noticed it otherwise.
My apologies with the "as well"...I wasn't trying to insult your intelligence, but you indicated simply that they're royalists which could be referring to a person at any point in time...I was merely shrugging my shoulders and suggesting that since Cavaliers are specific to a certain period in history being the English civil war, maybe that's why they were associated with a blade. lol, the point was indeed missed on my part then. I'll be comfortable in knowing that I have a contact to reach out to in the event of a discrepancy over centuries old blades. And while we're on the subject of missed points...how do you like the uniform designs/color schemes ;-)?
That's what I paid for gas in Columbus yesterday.
Did you live on Lane? I lived in a 10 bedroom house on Woodruff that was within throwing distance of Out-r-Inn in '06-'07. Much time was spent at that bar.
I liked in the summer league game I was watching Friday night, the announcers were talking about how they asked Bradley Beal who the toughest defender he's faced is and he said Matthew Dellavedova.
What day do you get in and what do you like to do? The easy answer for Saturday is hanging around the Short North during the early part of the day...tons of new awesome restaurants, breweries, bars, brewpubs etc. that have come about within the last handful of years. Make your way north and make sure to stop off at the shiny (relatively) new Ohio Union and check it out and even have a beer/catch a piece of some of the earlier games at Woody's Tavern inside the union. At that point I'd make the walk across The Oval for old time's sake, make it to the Shoe and RPAC (not sure if you were around for the finished RPAC...I think it finished '06-'07 or so?) and on to the Tailgate area/Lane Ave/Thirsty Scholar/etc. All of that can be done by walking, or can be cut shorter at any point by a quick cheap cab ride since everything's right there.
The Cleveland Cavaliers (and Virginia Cavaliers) have always associated swords into their logos/mascots/etc. Cavaliers were indeed Royalists, but they are historically associated with the English civil war as well...maybe that has something to do with it? Some of the more prominent Cavaliers during the time were cavalry men in support of the king.
I still think with multiple first rounders and Bennett and Waiters that is more or less on par with what Boston could offer. Bennett is a very good athlete with tons of potential and Waiters showed during the 2nd half of last year that he could average 20 ppg in the right situation next season. Sullinger is always hurt and Olynyk is good, but doesn't offer much growth potential...he is what he is. The other thing to take into account is Love can hold some leverage over the T-wolves and their trade partner by telling both teams he won't re-sign to a long term deal (or at least not committing to it so Boston would have to weigh the risk of losing him) unless he gets traded to Cleveland if LeBron & co. can convince him to come here.
I'll be extremely pissed if they trade Wiggins. I don't think they need to. It's not whether he's better than Love now or has better potential in the future...it's that the T-Wolves don't have any leverage in this. I think we could offer Bennett, Dion, Haywood's expiring contract and all 3 first rounders next year and that has to be as good or better than Golden State or Boston can really offer.
Some slick concepts from an Ohio artist:
First order of business....can we please get rid of our ugly ass uniforms and get better ones...or at least go back to the ones from last time Bron was here?
I mean, who arbitrarily chooses 85%?
I'm impatient with the decision for the sake of knowing and moving forward...but honestly, I'll be happy if he comes back and happy if he doesn't. I hate to see Cleveland fans get so wrapped around his finger again after what happened the last time.
If he comes back our team becomes a contender for years to come out of the east again.
If he doesn't, fine I don't like him or want to have to root for him...plus we've got a future with Wiggins, Irving and cap flexibility, young assets/trade bargaining chips. A bright future anyway.
Cavs believe today's reports of Dan Gilbert's letter is someone attempting to make their situation more difficult, I'm told.— Sam Amico (@SamAmicoFSO) July 11, 2014
Yet ESPN is running with it as their lead story all morning. This combined with Adande's hack-job yesterday just really points to an agenda. No one outside of ESPN is giving any credence to this report. Methinks they're a bit hesitant when it comes to the idea of having to create a "Cavs Index" on ESPN.com
Then why have you fellas over at ESPN been comparing him to Sterling in the first place?!
What Dan Gilbert wrote was idiotic & stupid, but not racist & comparable to D Sterling. 2 totally different situations. Shouldn't b compared— Chris Broussard (@Chris_Broussard) July 11, 2014
ESPN is going as far as comparing Dan Gilbert to Donald Sterling. J.A. Adande wrote that hack piece that basically took an article-long dump on Dan Gilbert and was their cover story yesterday...that pretty much flat out said LeBron would be wrong to go back to CLE. They seem to very strongly be pushing an agenda at this point.
This is a very good point that I hadn't really considered. There is no one else making any mention of this outside of ESPN and I've been seeing other sportswriters disputing Broussard's report though.
Rules of journalism state that anonymous sources should only be used to report facts, not opinions. @Chris_Broussard breaking that rule.— Chris Sheridan (@sheridanhoops) July 11, 2014
You can certainly take Sheridan with a grain of salt at this point (because his reputation is at stake, not because he's not credible/reputable...he's still not wavering that LeBron is 100% to Cleveland)...but multiple people are disputing Broussard's report. Yet, ESPN is going full steam ahead with it as their top story.
What's the difference between Broussard's sources and other prominent NBA writers? Why do we automatically assume he's in the know 100%...he's the same guy that has switched his viewpoint and lean on this almost daily over the last week.
Well other people have been reporting that they've mended their relationship a long time ago and moved on. No mention of that "sourced report" on ESPN (even some ESPN personalities have said they believe the issue has been mended), however they get Chris Broussard's "sourced report" and they take it and run with it and are going to try to shove it down our throats until this is over. It's hard to not get the impression that ESPN prefers him in Miami.
Actually Gilbert had the letter itself taken down in 2011. It was still apparently able to be found essentially as a screenshot archived page, and they apparently were unable to do anything about it. That's why the story came out this week that they had to seek assistance to get that page erased altogether.
