Hard-working Cavalier Jae Crowder will be fan favorite, Jeff Schudel says
CLEVELAND, Ohio — I’ll tell you now — Cavaliers fans are going to love Jae Crowder.

CLEVELAND, Ohio — A few Cleveland Cavaliers items you may have missed this past week:

More personal attacks on media members, more public sniping from league executives, more historic efficiency, more outrageous game-winners, and more drama that carries us right to the final week of the year. That’s the dream. Let’s do it all over again.
For now, here are my favorite bets on the board. – CLICK HERE to read full story.
