His watch has a preset reminder set to every 30 mins. That is when he hands Coach Coombs his next Red Bull.

One year they were up under my garden house spout. Yellowjackets 1 - HotSauceCommittee - 0. After 3 cans of spray I evened the series. 

If they are in the ground they can tunnel deep and at odd angles. My advice, go back out just after dusk when most have returned home and add your poison of choice, gas works but isn't safe, and then cover the whole. It's not the flames that kill them, it's the fumes.

McGregor's boxing training videos are DIY/weekend warrior/ amateur hour. I know this because that is what I am and I appear to look better. Nothing in his releases show me he can contend with Floyd. He would need to land one clean straight left in the first three rounds to win. After that, Floyd will roll him.

I would normally love to see Floyd crumble to the canvas, but abnormally I find myself routing for him to beat Conor. 

Those criticisms about Floyd not going the MMA route are really uninformed. MMA is a multifaceted sport - wrestling, boxing, martial arts, etc. It takes years to learn those skills. Conor at least training striking every time he trains, Floyd would never train to wrestle.

I cannot see this happening. I see LeBron letting this fester to put pressure on Gilbert, but I cannot see him letting this snowball like last time to rip out hometown fans hearts all over again. Frankly, what does he have to complain about. He is the best player on the 2nd best team in the NBA. He isn't getting any younger. Heck, the Cavs should do a sign and trade if he starts down this path again. Getting myself fired up here over talking head garbage.

This I don't understand. What experience qualifies him to be even an assistant to the assistant GM. I get guys going straight into coaching, but business is way different. 

Comment 19 Jun 2017

I like that the Cavs are making some inquiries. I don't want the Cavs to mortgage the future just to sign a big name player(s). Solidify bench, explore offers for Love, but don't take something just to make a change. The sky is not falling for the Cavs. 

Comment 14 Jun 2017

I agree on Love. He got cold a couple times in the series but was our most consistent three point shooter throughout the playoffs and probably our best rebounder. I saw a guy fighting his ass off for rebounds and playing pretty dang good D on much smaller guys against GSW. It is easy to pick on Love because he isn't Kyrie or LeBron. The problem is the shooting guard and small forward positions - both the starter and the bench. This include Smith, Jefferson, Shump, etc. If you recall, Smith didn't play too well offensively throughout the playoffs and didn't play particularly well against GSW last year either. The three guys I named are fine for regular season play and probably fine up against most teams outside of GSW.

Simply put, we should probably be acknowledging the success of GSW instead of the short comings of the Cavs. The Cavs are a very good team, but one that was exposed for poor defensive rotations and lack of scoring punch off the bench. Problems most teams have against GSW.

Good analysis Elite. I would also add the GSW are basically rewriting offensive basketball. If I wasn't a Cavs fan I would say it's beautiful to watch. Ball movement, unselfishness, etc. Plus, most teams don't have guys shooting it from 40 feet like layups. 

Comment 13 Jun 2017

Some of the responses in this forum are just silly. Things like adding Russell Westbrook and Kwahi Leonard. Come on! GSW built through the draft and added quality free agents. That is why they can afford these players. They will lose one or two in coming years much like the Thunder did with KD and The Beard.

Adding a 3rd stud to the Cavs roster is difficult because that person would have to play 3rd or even 4th fiddle. LBJ and Kyrie need the ball to be effective unlike the Warriors who have 4 players that can score 30 without taking many dribbles. Warriors are built to pass to score, Cavs were built differently - dribble drive to score.

Dumping Tristan Thompson is not the answer. One could argue he was just as valuable as any other player on our team in the first few rounds of the playoffs. Maybe even MVP in some of those series. He played great against GSW last year, but this year GSW went smaller so he was out of place. He is one of the best pick and roll defenders in all of basketball and is needed to grind in the Eastern Conference. Overpaid, yes, but he isn't the problem. The problem is our bench did jack and squat. Shumpurt and Jefferson, while playing pretty good D, contribute nothing on the offensive end. JR Smith played less minutes and was far less effective. Again, overpaid for a guy that plays good D and has an offensive game every 5th game. Moving a combination of these 3 players for youth and shooters is a start.

Cleveland would be a potential dynasty outside of GSW. I don't think much tinkering needs to be done. 2nd place gets you there, just need one or two pieces to get past GSW. Durant was a difference maker, but really him and LBJ cancel each other out. Its getting another scoring guard that is key. A guy like Bradley Beal, Derozan, etc would cost far less than Paul George. Jimmy Butler would be a potential fit, but again, price tag.

Having torn my Achilles nearly 5 months ago I can say that severe foot and lower limb injuries are tough to overcome. Complicating matters is the fact that your calf muscle practically disappears after 3 weeks. Thinking no big deal, but it takes months of rehab and strength training to get it back to even 75%. In Dontre's case he probably had several breaks and fractures to go along with ligament damage. I don't believe the extent of his injury was ever truly released.

The OSU-PSU game last year was a perfect display of how momentum plays a huge factor into sports. Franklin was nearly kicked to the curb before the OSU game catapulted them toward a whirlwind season of success. As much as I dislike Franklin, hate Penn State, kudos to their kids for a great season. That being said, I have that game circled on my calendar.

Unknown to the audience but the characters within the shoe probably know. It hasn't been revealed yet.
