Emotional Rollercoaster: The Highs and Lows of Being a Lifelong Cavaliers Fan

With the tipoff to game four just a few hours away, I thought I’d take a minute to reflect on this season’s wild postseason run. This playoff run has truly been a microcosm of what it’s been like to be a Cavs fan for the past 30 years – drama, injuries, buzzer-beating game winners and losers, unlikely heros, cosmic highs and crushing lows.

5 Reasons Shaq Should Rejoin the Lakers

The Lakers are going to be bad this year. Really bad. With Byron Scott at the helm and a lineup full of D-leaguers, pan-flashes and has-beens; they are in need of some serious help. Who better than the original Superman himself, Shaquille O’Neal?  1) He’s Probably Still a Top-5 Center If he started training right now, I bet Shaq could be in game shape (well, game shape for Shaq) by Christmas Day. And, with a game against the...
