The Hoop & The Harm: Cavs Win Lottery, T-Wolves Are Sour, Ratings Soar

Gilbert’s “Decision”

Cleveland Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert will have a couple of big decisions to make in just over a month, which he hopes will ease the pain of “The” Decision.

The Cavs won the NBA Draft Lottery on Tuesday night after the club’s first season without LeBron James, who left for Miami last summer. Represented on stage by Gilbert’s 14-year-old son Nick, Cleveland walked away with the first and fourth picks thanks to a trade with the LA Clippers back in February.

While the 2011 draft pool isn’t seen as being incredibly deep, Gilbert and the Cavaliers still have a pretty solid opportunity here to right a ship that was left in tatters by the departure of King James. (After the jump: Was the Lottery fixed? Plus some sick Taj Gibson dunks…) (more…)

Kerrzy’s Notebook: Karma Police?

Wednesday, January 12th, 2011

The new year hasn’t been kind to the NBA’s Cleveland Cavaliers so far and if Tuesday night is anything to go by, it doesn’t look like things are about to change anytime soon.

The Cavs are 0-6 to start 2011 and 1-20 since a loss to LeBron James and the Miami Heat to start the month of December. On Tuesday it wasn’t so much that they lost though, it was how they lost! A Cleveland team depleted by injuries is now picking up the pieces of a shattered collective ego after a 112-57 loss to the LA Lakers at the Staples Center.

For the mathematically challenged, that’s a 55-point defeat!

I hope Cleveland’s resolutions for 2011 didn’t have anything to do with winning, because at this rate they’ll never score more points than anyone! I blogged this week about the Cavs changing hotels in LA to avoid bumping into the Heat, who are also in town…I’m thinking they should probably cross the street the next time they see those Lakers too!

NBA.com quotes guys like coach Byron Scott and forward Antawn Jamison talking about how embarrassing the loss was and what a “rock bottom” moment they’re in right now, but the real question is this: What does LeBron think? (more…)
