There’s a lockout going on. So how about a video of WBF with some pretty rare footage of the 1980-1983 Home and Away uniforms? (and forgive me, there is some footage of him from when he was on the Sixers, etc…)
Check out how empty the Coliseum was (at 1:11 in)
It is extremely rare to have any photos/videos of the Cavs is their home uni’s from that area. Why? The team was so bad an so widely unpopular that almost no one was there for the home games. So most of the archival footage is from road games.
Enjoy watching World work and his legendary “egg in a nest” haircut.
J.J. still has huge upside, and the Cavs weren’t to keen on dealing him, but they needed a 2/3 and some wiggle room financially. Plus J.J. may be to pricey to sign long term for what he gives.
Now we wait. The doors are locked and no NBA to be played for a while. Also, who knows if we’ll get to use that LBJ trade exception. Get ready for a quiet summer.
(if you guys want something to do to fill the time this summer, try Googling “Omri Casspi Girlfriend”)
Pretty big day yesterday, the Cavs took Irving as expected with the 1st and surprised quite a few with Thompson at 4. I gotta admit I didn’t know Tristan at all prior to the pick and I just hope Coach Scott and GM Grant know more than I do.
I the 2nd round they picked Milan Macvan from Serbia – 6′ 9” 260 lbs… that’s all I know
Feels good to be at the center of the NBA Universe again. I gotta admit I missed it.
Cavs have the 1 and the 4 but we’ve heard all sorts of rumors about trades and changes. Twitter is a blessing and a curse. So much information is available but its hard to sift through it all. We will see.
Cavs have been spotty with drafts. Traditionally always making the right pick at #1 (Carr, Big Brad, LBJ) and making good 2nd round picks. But in the last 15 years we’ve NOT done so great at mid lottery picks.
Tomorrow should be fun.

Mike made the 1981 All-Star game that was hosted in Richfield, OH. He score 14 on 6/12 shooting and grabbed 4 rebounds in 15 minutes of work in front of his home crowd.
Mike was well known for prolific scoring and a high arching jumper. He had no fear in putting it up.
The Cavs drafted Mike in 1978 and he came off the bench his first season before joining the starting line-up and becoming a great scorer.

CAVS WIN! (link)
But even he needed a little help. The Cleveland Sportsverse was well represented as Gilbert flew out Josh Cribbs, Cavs SuperFan Joe Haden and also Bernie Kosar!?
And I agree with Nick: “What’s not to like”
