I started following the Cleveland Cavaliers as a young boy at the age 10. I have been through it all from the 17 win season back in 2002 to the 66 win season in 2009. However one thing has stayed the same throughout the years; no championships. However, my dedication to my childhood team never faltered and I will continue to have great hopes for this team until the city of Cleveland has Larry O’Brien trophy to call their own.
This blog will follow the Cleveland Cavaliers through the end of their regular season and look forward to their off-season as they try to rebuild an NBA Championship team.
Another year, another losing record. That has been norm in Cleveland ever since Lebron James left in the summer of 2010. The Cavaliers have gone through a brutal transition period being one of the NBA’s best to one of their worst. However, all is not lost. They
drafted one of the league’s brightest young players in Kyrie Irving, they have tons of cap room to acquire players this off-season and most importantly it can only go up from here.
It has been a rocky time for Cleveland basketball but follow this team now as they begin to rebuild itself into one of the youngest teams in the NBA. Check out these news sites for up to date coverage and the latest news from the Cavaliers.
