Dave Sterling hosts Craig Lyndall to discuss the Cavaliers' victory over the Toronto Raptors and their second straight appearance in the NBA Finals.

May 24, 2016

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.

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.
