Dave Sterling hosts Craig Lyndall to discuss the Cavaliers' victory over the Toronto Raptors and their second straight appearance in the NBA Finals.
There are few people I like to talk Cavs more with than Brian Spaeth. He's not beholden to the same drama that the rest of the sports world has relied on to garner eyeballs. We discussed the Cleveland Cavaliers' struggles in Toronto and whether or not it's good for the team to face some adversity.
How short should the trigger be for Ty Lue with Kevin Love? Where is the value for Tristan Thompson if he can't outplay Bismack Biyongo? Can the Cavs trap the pick and roll for four straight quarters? Will the Cavaliers come out faster simply by being at home in front of a friendly crowd?
We also discussed podcasting in general and drew comparisons with the start of blogs. We talked about the fractured media environment, the short-term traffic play and how fruitless that ultimately will be when the dust settles on this internet-based content culture.
Dave and Dylan received an assignment from Craig at the beginning of the Cavs playoff run to produce some Cavs playoff content. Due to their poor scheduling choices they have yet to record even a minute of podcast about the 2 previous playoff series. With this series seemingly over already they scrambled to put together a short podcast to get Craig off their backs for at least a little while. Please enjoy the Friday Fumble Cavaliers Edition.
Jamie Meklemburg jumped on episode #500 of the WFNY Podcast to discuss a CHAMPIONSHIP. Stipe Miocic captured the UFC Heavyweight Title and Jamie was in Brazil while it was happening. He gives us all the details.
Dave, Yaz and Stephanie got together for another WFNY soccer podcast! We're still thinking of a catchier title, we promise!

Dave got together with Chris Clem and discussed the Game 3 win over the hawks.
Mike Polk Jr. stopped by to discuss his latest album release on a brand new label.

Here's his comedy album available on iTunes.
We discussed Browns season tickets, Believeland, Mike's career in print and on TV and how he came to be able to deal with the negative people.
Scott Raab helped build this podcast with his Monday morning episodes. We will forever be indebted to him for spending that time with WFNY and we're happy to have him on whenever he feels like it. He is in town for the Cavs playoffs and wanted to discuss ESPN's forthcoming 30 for 30 documentary Believeland. It's showing March 14th on ESPN.
We also discussed the Cavaliers, sports and life in general, and a little bit about life after Esquire magazine.
Chad Zumock is a friend to WFNY and he is going to be on TV soon doing his first TV standup showcase. He'll be on AXS TV's Gotham Comedy Live on May 12th at 10:00 PM with Norm MacDonald as host. Check it out.
Here's what else we discussed.
I have two guests coming up later this week, but I wanted tochat about the Browns and the final results of their drafting. Iwanted to talk about how silly it is to assign draft grades andtalk a little bit about what the job is ahead of Hue Jackson andthe coaching staff.
Finally I wanted to talk about the Cavaliers, Timofey Mozgov,and the upcoming series with the Hawks. It's a bit of anon-preview, but that's what you get from me.
Finally I am avoiding talking about the Indians... for now.
