Irving’s Return Evokes Memories of Former Indians’ Homecomings

October 17, 2017 |

Tuesday night, the National Basketball Association opens its 2017-18 regular season schedule as the Cleveland Cavaliers host the Boston Celtics in a game that has much more meaning than the usual opening night game.

The Cavs and Celtics have become rivals over the course of the last few years, with Cleveland knocking Boston out of the playoffs twice in the last three seasons. The two clubs went toe-to-toe in the Eastern Conference Finals last year, with the Cavs winning that series, four games to one, to send Cleveland to its third straight NBA Finals. As many remember, that trip did not end nearly as well as the previous season, when the Cavs gave the city of Cleveland its first championship since 1964 with the first title in franchise history, leaving the Indians as holders of the longest active championship drought in the city.

While the Cavs will begin their defense of three straight Eastern Conference titles, the game’s real emphasis will be on the return of star guard Kyrie Irving to Quicken Loans Arena, where the former first overall pick in 2011 spent the first six years of his NBA career in Cavs’ wine and gold before demanding a trade in the offseason. The Cavs front office honored that request, sending its second-best player to a rival club, but may have, possibly, become a more well-rounded club in the process. That remains to be seen, as the results will play out over the course of the largely meaningless 82-game NBA schedule over the next six months. Read More

December 5, 2016 |

The upcoming National Baseball Hall of Fame Class added its first members for 2017 induction on Sunday night as the Today’s Game Era committee announced that two former baseball executives had gained entrance to Cooperstown.

Longtime baseball execs John Schuerholz and Bud Selig were both selected in the 16-vote balloting process. They were two of the ten men up for consideration for the Hall of Fame Class of 2017 and are the first to be selected by the newest of the veteran’s committees established to evaluate those who made contributions to the game of baseball and players who have last played at least 15 seasons ago.

The Today’s Game Era committee focuses on those who made their biggest marks on the game of baseball from 1988 to the present. Four former Indians players were on the ballot this year, including Albert Belle, Orel Hershiser, Harold Baines, and Lou Piniella. They were joined by players Will Clark and Mark McGwire, manager Davey Johnson, and executive George Steinbrenner. Read More
