CLEVELAND Cavaliers forward Larry Nance Jr. sat in his locker in the home locker room at Quicken Loans Arena on Friday night and reflected on what was an eventful 2017-2018 season.
Year three in the NBA for Nance started with a Los Angeles Lakers team that is rebuilding, and ended with a win-now Cavs team that lost to the Golden State Warriors in four games in the NBA Finals.
Nance got valuable experience playing in an NBA Finals.
He will enter the 2018-2019 season wanting to contribute even more. - CLICK HERE to read full story.

One of those goals, obviously, is winning championships. Just as obviously, James and Meyer face the same obstacle.

CLEVELAND, Ohio -- So, I told you in April that my weekly 'Hey, Joe!' Cavs column was done for the playoffs.
You didn't listen, and I love you for it.
With only a few exceptions, if you emailed me here or tweeted me with the hashtag #heyjoecavs since the playoffs started in mid-April, your answer is below. I thought it would be cool to see what was on your mind then, and apply the answers to what transpired through the Cavs' run to the Finals.
And, um, sorry for the delay, Adrian from Vancouver. - CLICK HERE to read full story.
