why cant it just be that big golden "Q" for the one in "Quicken" and then have "Loans Arena" next to it.  somehow incorporate the "swoosh" thing into the bottom of the Q.  i mean who puts words under and outside of a "swoosh" and some inside of it?  that just looks terrible.  i would even say invert the "quicken" colors so the text is red and not worry about the border around it

The end is here.  From Thursday Sept 8, 2005:

 

On another note, does anyone know what they are doing with the space where the old large video displays were?  hopefully upgrading...

Pope,

 

The Cavs don't suck.

 

I wonder what they will do with the old signs.  I just ran into the old Chief Wahoo sign at the WRHS Library. Very cool.

Some good news, the Quicken Loans center alluded to earlier in this thread looks like it will come to be.  From Cleveland.com

 

3:14 p.m.

 

Cleveland Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert announced today that he has selected Cleveland as the site for a new loan office that will create 350 high-paying jobs for his rapidly-expanding Quicken Loans. The jobs are expected to pay $85,000 to $90,000 a year in salary and commission. The loan office will be located downtown, as close to Gund Arena as possible, Gilbert said. He wants it open by the middle of next year. Jobs will be for mortgage bankers/loan officers who will process incoming customer calls/ loan applications.

 

I like to see this.  There was a press conference at 1:00 to discuss the move.  Mayor Campbell was there but I did not see it.  Waiting to see if they post the archive on www.cavs.com...

Did anyone see when both Gooden and Donyell Marshall both went for a rebound at the end of Fridays game and Marshall accidently tipped the ball in for the Nets.  I swear that can only happen to a Cleveland team.

A 2 da K, I would normally agree with you, but as dumb as that play looked, it wasn't heartbreaking b/c we did so much other stuff to f--- up the game.  With now 6 of 8 losses, we're in a bona fide slump.  It's not like this game, or the blunder had any playoff implications.  It was more salt in the wound than a heartbreaker.

Our lack of defense is killing us and making LeBron's antics look like a circus sideshow.  As Brian Windhorst noted in his ABJ game article this morning, Milwaukee fans had the best of both worlds: watching LeBron with his amazing 52 pt exploits but, in the end, going home with the warm feeling that their team won...

 

... I'd rather have the win, ... sorry LeBron.

I don't have the answer other than we may have to deal someone before the deadline, ... and the someone most likely would be Drew.  Question is: who would want Drew enough to give him the quality definsive stopper we so desperately need.  I don't know if there's an as unbalanced team in the league as the Cavs: awesome O, nonexistent D.  I was thrilled to get Hughes and the sharp shooters in the off season, but they can only make the games competitive, the scores respectable, whereas last season, esp at the end, we were getting blown out.

 

... I just don't think this town or this franchise can withstand another year missing the playoffs.  It's a long way off and we have plenty of time to turn it around, but based on last year while looking at this team nearly 20 games in has got to scare any Cavs' fan to death.

5 in row!  It was nice to see the Cavs pull it out against the Pacers when Lebron was having an off night (much credit to the Pacers D).  The Cavs have been looking a little more consistent on the defensive end lately; lets hope this continues.

enjoy your fourth place playoff seed

An 8th place playoff seed will be enjoyed more than the playoff seeding the Cavs have gotten the last 5+ years or so.

^ Amen to that!  I'm not picky, I just want to see the Cavs still playing in May (though, with their impressive home record, home court advantage could really help them in advancing).

the cavs just cannot beat the nets for some reason. ugh. maybe because jefferson clamps down on lebron? marshall standing around? i dk.  but that was a frustrating game to watch. it will be great to see them in the post-season, but they just do not have the talent depth to go very far in the playoffs.

Baby Steps....lol  I know what you mean. The team has teased us the last two years and missed out on the playoff, but I "think" they can make it this year.  I don't think they have the stamina to make to a conference finals, but possibly win the opening series.
