A long road to hoe for Cavs

De'Andre Hunter It seems like it was a long time ago, when the Cleveland Cavaliers were hoisting the NBA Championship in Oakland. Gosh it was just three years ago in 2016. The City and the region erupted with joy and hundreds of thousands clogged downtown Cleveland during that once in a lifetime parade. Hence Toronto we know how you feel. As the Cavaliers enter the NBA Draft on June 20, most of the remnants of that bygone title era are gone. Hanging by a thread is JR Smith and to greater degrees Tristan Thompson and the albatross Kevin Love. The Cavs went from four consecutive Eastern Conference Finals to the basement of the Eastern Conference last season, limping to a 19-63 record. LeBron J

Rich Paul is top NBA Power Player

Glenville native breaks industry norms The National Basketball Association just completed its championship and will conduct its draft of amateur players on June 20th, but these are mere sideshows to the vast underbelly of what transformed one of America’s most popular sports and its culture of business that has long been controlled by non African Americans. In a league where roughly 95 percent of its players are Black, there is only one African American owner. While many Blacks roam the sidelines as head coaches, an obscure number of Blacks are making decisions as General Managers. Furthermore the players donning uniforms of 30 NBA teams are being represented by individuals and or agents who

Cleveland’s Cuyahoga River: 50 Years after the Fire

How Two Mayors Connected Environmental Sustainability and Social Equity On June 22, 1969, sparks from a passing train set fire to oil-soaked debris floating in the Cuyahoga River and set the river ablaze. The fire wasn’t the worst of the Cuyahoga River fires – it burned 13 times going back to 1868 – but it was the last. It ignited an environmental revolution in Cleveland and across the United States. The river fire in 1969 wasn’t the only issue that plagued Cleveland – at the time, the city faced social unrest due to racial discrimination in housing, deindustrialization, unemployment and declining neighborhoods. As the first African-American mayor of a major American city, Carl Stokes was al
