When I was young and dumb I got a summer job at a factory that was about ten thousand degrees that day. I got there and they had no one to train me. Apparently they either forgot they hired people, or people called off. I don;t know. So they threw me to some random person and she spent 8 hours complaining about how horrible the job was and was pissed I was standing behind her.

I never went back.

If I believe Jordan got suspended for 2 years for gambling I believe Lebron and Dan Gilbert conspired to have some drama for a good story, leave for 4 years to get good draft picks and reassemble (takes off tin foil hat now).

P.S. Gilbert became the cities favorite owner of all time after writing that letter. Win Win for everyone

Some thoughts as a Cavs fan. Given the current rules Curry shouldn't be suspended. HOWEVER, I find it odd that throwing an object at a ref is a suspension but hitting a fan is totally cool(yes I know there is a fine). 

As far as playing best vs best. Klay, Curry, and Draymond can all tear their ACL's before Sunday and that would be fine. I don't see Florida apolgizing for Ginn being injured, or Love and Ky last year with GSW. Wins a Win and when its been 60 years I'll take whatever it comes as.

Don't be silly. There are few players with Loves skill set and size in the league. He was great all playoffs and his best use to us now is clearing the lane for Ky and Lebron to do work. We need the lane clear. Love pulls defenders.

Comment 16 Jun 2016

Its what the coaches want him to do. He clears out the paint. Would you rather have LBJ have a clear path to layups or Love try to shoot elbow jumpers and post up against one of the best defenders in the league?

Comment 14 Jun 2016

No trade with Love gets us his value back. Plus hes only in his mid 20's. Also, we changed our 09 team due to Dwight Howard killing us and then got screwed when we faced Boston instead. You don't change your team for one other team, especially in the opposite conference. All we need to do as a team is add some depth that has length. We lost Game 1 because Livingston was 5 inches taller then our bench guards. We need a 6'6 guy who can play D and shoot atleast decent. He can be a ring chaser for all I care or a guy who was a higher pick who didn't hold looking to add value for another contract. 

Comment 14 Jun 2016

Im guessing they want Love to clear out the paint to allow LBJ and Kyrie to drive instead of posting him up and clogging the paint. In my opinion they should be able to mix it up and set some off side screens to allow for some cross court passes out of the post if/when they trap him.

Comment 14 Jun 2016

We withstood Klay going off and Curry put up 25 which isn't awful. Lue quit bringing in Delly(who I love) but Livingston has like 5 inches on him and destroys him on offense.

No matter what happens this year we need to get some length on the perimeter next year in our depth.

Friend and I used them for about 6 months. My advice would be if you do take them to be extremely smart. While I don't think they are healthy, I think the problem most people get into is they don't cycle correctly(IE never quit, don't slowly get off them, don't take the appropriate items when coming off). Its a very explosive "supplement" and it can get addicting when you see your strength increase so quickly. My other advice is to agree ahead of time with someone you love that you confide in them about what you are doing and the second you show signs of increased anger you stop. Have them be your guide because if you don't you will probably rationalize everything away.

Yea its not "healthy" but either is alchohol and big macs but people do that so...

Also, drinks tons of water

Comment 09 Jun 2016

I think Love would be perfect to come off the bench and be the main scorer that can allow LBJ and Kyrie to sit one at a time and still have 2 of the big three on the court at the same time. Whatever we do Lebron needs to be the point-4 most of the time. Run the offense and guard Dryamond on D. Our biggest weakness on offense has been the second unit so having Love come in and be the man would be ideal.

Comment 09 Jun 2016

To be fair, those are the type of players who decide to leave after a year or two due to them being buried on the depth chart. It works itself out and in the mean time you hit on the occasional Darron lee.

Comment 09 Jun 2016

Cavs in 6

To follow up, The Splash Brothers are playing terrible and are banking on Green and Livingston carrying them to a title. Could happen but when your team leaders are whining about the refs and whatever Curry is doing...not a good look.

We actually live on Cary. I just use Raleigh since more people know it. Tonight may be short notice but we may need to put together an Elevenwarriors Cavs bash down here during one of the games.

Comment 02 Jun 2016

Yes, 2005. We watch most of our Buckeyes games at a bar across from Meredith college but that is a Buckeye bar, not a Cleveland specific one.
