John Beilein and the promise of offensive flow

SBN: Fear The Sword (Chris Manning) — With Beilein, the Cavs are poised to enter a new era of basketball. In recent years, the Cavs’ offense — both with LeBron James and without — has never truly flowed. With LeBron — both with and without Kyrie Irving – the offense was built to bludgeon opponents into submission.

Cavs to pick fifth in 2019 NBA Draft

SBN: Fear The Sword (Chris Manning) — The lottery balls did not fall in the Cavs favor. The lottery odds didn’t work out in the Cavs’ favor this time around.

What we learned from the Cavaliers this week: Feb. 25 - March 3

SBN: Fear The Sword (Jackson Flickinger) — The Cavs are playing fun basketball again at least when Kevin Love is on the floor. This week was a microcosm of the Cleveland Cavaliers’ season as a whole.
