Ben Axelrod (twitter) is one of the best guests on the WFNY podcast. He's a sports guy, but he can talk about anything. He's willing to throw questions back at me and challenge me on things. We laugh about stuff usually. This time was no different.

We've long talked about having an owner's podcast and now it finally happened. Prior to a WFNY owner's conference call, we talked about a whole host of things. We talked about WFNY. We talked about where we've been, where we're going and what we think about when we're planning for the future.

No conclusions. No breaking news, but it should be an interesting listen for the long-timers.

It's been a bit of a podcast drought of late, and it probably won't get better until next week. That being the case I wanted to check in and give you my Cleveland Browns preview thoughts as we get into Game 2 of the 2016 NFL pre-season. I also discussed some of these points at length on the pages of WFNY.

The Cleveland Indians acted like big time players on Sunday making trades for the New York Yankees' Andrew Miller and the Milwaukee Brewers' Jonathan Lucroy. Only the Miller trade ended up going through, but it was a banner day for the Tribe. I also discuss how meaningless training camp is, and Ghostbusters 2016.

This turned out to be a two-part podcast with Brian Spaeth. We had a long drive and ended up talking for about an hour. Part one is a lot about NBA free agency. We talk about Kevin Durant's move to the Warriors in a post-championship world. We discussed Dwyane Wade, Luol Deng and whether or not super teams were the death of the NBA.

Part two will include talk about Crying Jordan, more NBA and movies.

  • Golden State probably won't win 73 games again even with a better team
  • The power of the Cavaliers championship in all the player movement
  • Golden State Warriors giving the rest of the NBA hope

I've been talking about the Cleveland Cavaliers season obituary I wrote. Well, here it is. This is the beginning and please listen in for the rest.

If you define success by winning championships you're doomed to misery. I know it's early in the mourning process for these kinds of thoughts, but I've had this one stewing since the Cleveland Cavaliers dropped Game 4 to the Golden State Warriors. After attending that game and being a bit down, but not completely depressed, I had all these thoughts swirling around my head. I can't summarize my opinion in just one statement - and I won't with the number of words this will take - but my truth about the Cavaliers - and one I hope to feel sooner rather than later - is that this was an amazing season to be a fan of the team, despite them not winning it all.

I don't know if this was the best podcast we ever do, but it's definitely the best topic. Scott Raab joins the WFNY podcast after the Cleveland Cavaliers made history and made us all champions.
