Congratulations to everyone for making it to another Friday.
The first sip.
Cavs’ training camp is in full swing. Here are some of the quotes and soundbites I found most interesting from Thursday’s media availability.
Hopefully the vibes stay immaculate.
#Cavs swingman Caris LeVert reaffirms with us that he’s fully healthy after dealing with nagging injuries all season long.— Evan Dammarell (@AmNotEvan) September 29, 2022
He also shares he’s cut sugar out of his meal plan and has converted to a Keto-based diet.
I don’t think I could stick to a Keto-based diet for more than a week.
The coaching staff and front office have not been shy with praising Mobley while also laying out what they expect from him. I believe in Mobley as much as they do, but it’s a lot of pressure to put on a 21 year-old.
Robin Lopez has been a big hit around #Cavs camp.— Serena Winters (@SerenaWinters) September 29, 2022
Gotta love this description of RoLo from Evan Mobley:
"He’s just like a big jolly guy that’s always happy. A lot of people might think he’s a little scary because he’s tall & big, but he’s really just a nice guy & goofy."
I’m not sure if I’ve ever heard anyone described as a “big jolly guy” besides Santa Claus.
The second sip.
Daniel Gibson is joining the Cleveland Charge’s coaching staff this season as an assistant. He is participating in the NBA Assistant Coaches Program which looks to give opportunities for former NBA players who aspire to work in coaching or the front office.
It’ll be nice to have Booby around the city and organization this season.

Ranking the NBA’s 30 best guards for the 2022-2023 season Both Garland and Mitchell are outside the top 10. I feel like the greater NBA community has overcorrected on Mitchell a little too much.
