Fear The Links - Sunday 5/17

I'll be taking over Fear The Links and bringing you the best Cavs news (hopefully) every day.  If you find any good Cavs stories online send them to me at and I'll add them to the links.  Hope you enjoy!

Cleveland Plain Dealer

  • Brian Windhorst breaks down the Cavs' future Eastern Conference Finals opponents, looking at the advantages and disadvantages of playing both the Celtics and the Magic.

  • Windhorst also checks in with his weekly Hey Brian! question-and-answer column.  He doesn't get many questions (epsecially when compared to the Browns and Indians writers) so if you have any questions about the Cavs send them to Brian and maybe you'll get in next week's article.

  • Bud Shaw discusses Brad Daugherty's claim that his Cavs could beat this season's Cavs.  He thinks maybe Daugherty has inhaled too much NASCAR exhaust.    

  •                                                                            1695872_medium
  • On a non-basketball note, Mary Schmitt Boyer has a really nice article about Mike Brown's wife, Carolyn, who talks to young girls at Cleveland-area schools about domestic violence.  She and Coach Brown have two boys, so she says she loves the chance to meet (and share hugs) with as many young girls as she can.

Akron Beacon-Journal

  • Patrick McManamon looks at Anderson Varejao's transformation from role player to starter over the past year and discusses his upcoming contract situation this offseason.
  • George Thomas writes about the Cavs' improved offense from last season.
  • Thomas also looks at Ben Wallace fitting in to a reserve role now that he's back from injury and Varejao is starting.
  • One more article from Thomas, this time about Delonte West's important role in the Cavs sucess this season, both offensively and defensively.  Very good read.

The Morning Journal

  • Bob Finnan looks at last season's Game 7 loss to the Celtics.  Don't you get the feeling that the Cavs really want a rematch with Boston and the chance to avenge that loss?

Around the Internet

  • has a run-down of what the Cavs have done to surround LeBron with talent and make themselves in to the league's best team.  The article is more geared towards people who haven't been following the Cavs all season and letting them know the team is more that just LeBron.
  • has an article about Varejao and the F-word (no, not that one).
