Cleveland Cavaliers Fire Mike Brown – Who Comes Next?

Posted on 13 May, 2014, by in NBA

It has been a rough few years for Mike Brown, who gets the less than impressive mark of being fired by the same team twice, being let go by the Cleveland Cavaliers after only one season at the helm. This will obviously put the names of George Karl and Stan Van Gundy at the top of the list for successors, while Mark Jackson will also be in the mix, along with college basketball coaches like Billy Donovan, Fred Hoiberg, Tim Izzo, John Beilein and Tony Bennett.

NBA Rumors – Cleveland Cavaliers Might Lose Kyrie Irving

Posted on 31 Jan, 2014, by in NBA

This wasn’t the plan. With Kyrie Irving finally healthy for a full season, the Cleveland Cavaliers should have been in a spot that enables them to make the playoffs. Instead, they’ve lost almost twice as much as they’ve one, and their supposed franchise player is getting more and more reasons to find himself a new team as soon as possible. More

NBA Rumors – Cleveland Cavaliers Will Start Andrew Bynum

Posted on 21 Jul, 2013, by in NBA

After he missed an entire season due to his knee injuries, is it really that wise promising Andrew Bynum is going to be a starter if he’s healthy next season for the Cleveland Cavaliers? Probably not. More

NBA Rumors – Cleveland Cavaliers Plan to Play Anthony Bennett At Power Forward

Posted on 17 Jul, 2013, by in NBA

Being a tweener in the NBA can be a blessing or a curse, and the Cleveland Cavaliers, obviously, are hoping that their number one draft pick, Anthony Bennett, is going to be the latter. So is it going to be a power forward or small forward? Too soon to tell, with Bennett recovering from surgery and in some sort of diet program to shed some weight, but initial proclamations designate him to the power forward position. More

Cleveland Cavaliers – Jarrett Jack Makes Them Playoff Contenders

Posted on 16 Jul, 2013, by in NBA

The best move the Cleveland Cavaliers made this offseason wasn’t using their number one draft pick on Anthony Bennett (early on looking like a bad choice), but signing Jarrett Jack from the Golden State Warriors. More

Owen Farrell Books His Lions Spot (Ireland vs England)

Posted on 10 Feb, 2013, by in Rugby

Last minute of the match, and Ireland couldn’t even get a line out in their own half to go right. Owen Farrell wasn’t flawless, and England didn’t score any tries, but there was no question as to the best team on the damp and muddy pitch, and as to the identity of the favorites to keep on to win the 2013 Six Nations Championship.

Los Angeles Lakers – Kobe Bryant Gets Mike D’Antoni Instead of Phil Jackson

Posted on 12 Nov, 2012, by in Featured

Things move quickly with the Los Angeles Lakers, who have won their two games since firing Mike Brown, but have already chosen to sign Mike D’Antoni on a four year deal, putting pack on the pressure road of winning now and winning big, while hoping Kobe Bryant and Dwight Howard are happy with the new choice.

Kobe Bryant Enjoying Los Angeles Lakers Without Mike Brown

Posted on 10 Nov, 2012, by in NBA

Forget what the words say. Kobe Bryant, the rest of the players, the front office of the Los Angeles Lakers. See actions, see energy, see faces. Everyone was waiting for Mike Brown to get the axe sooner or later, Bryant, maybe more than all of them. Magic happens, and without Brown the Lakers ran away for an easy win for only the second time this season. More

Los Angeles Lakers – Mike Brown Firing Only a Question of Time

Posted on 9 Nov, 2012, by in NBA

It’s amazing who an organization can send out all kinds of signals before doing the exact opposite. I guess that eventually, the look that Kobe Bryant gave Mike Brown on the bench during the loss to the Utah Jazz did mean what it looked like. Just a season and a bit at the job, only 71 regular season games, and Mike Brown is no longer the head coach of the Los Angeles Lakers. More

Los Angeles Lakers Not Figuring it Out

Posted on 8 Nov, 2012, by in NBA

Another game, another loss. The Los Angeles Lakers version 2012-2013, one of the more megalomaniac projects in recent years the NBA has seen, are simply not taking off the ground. They’re now 1-4, with Kobe Bryant growing frustrated, Dwight Howard not adding the kind of defense he was expected to and Mike Brown taking most of the heat. More
