In a stunning move, the Cavaliers (err, Dan Gilbert) have fired long time play-by-play man and noted word aficionado Michael Reghi. Trying to fill his shoes will be some guy who used to do play-by-play for the Pistions.
We get it Dan, you’re from Detriot. You like to benchmark winners. Can you please leave something Cleveland? First we had to endure Public Address announcer Ronnie “Slam” Duncan, a blatant Mase rip-off, yelling at us the entire game and now this? Reghi, while at times a little over the top and maybe a little corny, brought a certain flair and life to the broadcast. His rapport and camaraderie with AC and Scott Williams was both genuine and entertaining.
You’ll be missed “Plugs”.

The NBA announced the regular season schedule for the league and as a memeber of said league, the Cavs are included in this announcement. They open at home against the Wiz, then do a strange San Antonio to Charlotte back to back on the road. Some games to note: @LAC Jan. 13th, @Denver Jan. 19th (a day everyone should celebrate), LAL Feb. 11th, and ironically enough @Utah Feb. 14th (be sure to give Boozer my love) before wrapping up the regular season against Milwaukee at home on April 18th.
Also if you live out of market, don’t fret. The Cavs are on national TV a ridiculous 33 times this season. I’m all for promoting Cleveland and the Cavs, but lets save some for the wedding night.
Looks like the Cavs got to good pickups to help out at the 1 and 2 position.

For the 4th time, LeBron gets a SI cover all to himself
This one is called “LeBron In Full” (check it here)
other classic LeBron SI cover titles are:
The Chosen One
The Importance of Being LeBron
and (my favorite)
Came across this pretty authentic looking pic of the (maybe?) AZLBJ IV for next year. We won’t know if this is real for probably about 6 months, but I’m posting it now anyways because I’m a little LeBron obsessed at the moment.
