Cavaliers enter the LeBron Twilight Zone

The Cleveland Cavaliers will know by Friday June 29, whether they will return to planet earth when LeBron James decides if he will opt out of his contract and become a free agent or return to his home team on a precarious one year deal. LeBron’s decision this time could prove to be more catastrophic to the Cleveland Cavaliers, than when the Cavaliers were one of the league’s worst franchises, compiling a 97-215 record without making a single playoff appearance. The first step towards that possible bleak future began last week when the franchise was so paralyzed awaiting the LeBron decision that it took Alabama freshman point guard Colin Sexton with the No. 8 pick acquired from the Boston Cel

When is Enough is Enough?

The phrase ‘Enough is Enough’ is born out of frustration and despair over the senselessness of crime in our nation, in our cities and more specifically in the City of Cleveland. Whether you gather your information from Victimization data, the evidence on criminal behavior, the Uniform Crime Reports or your local news reports.

Are we as a people really ready to step up to the plate and actually do something about the crime-riddled streets of our city? Recently, a mother Marshawnette Daniels and a father Robert Nicholson shed

Cavs face draft day dilemma Keep pick or trade to win now

The Cleveland Cavaliers face a daunting dilemma when the 2018 NBA Draft unfolds on Thursday June 21. Do the Cavs keep the No. 8 pick and prepare for a possible future without LeBron James or trade the selection for the possibility of landing Kawhi Leonard from the San Antonio Spurs? According to a report from Cleveland.com the Cavaliers are among the teams placing calls to the Spurs regarding disgruntled superstar who has requested to be traded to the Los Angeles Lakers.
