That's faster on offense by pushing the ball up the floor more quickly, and faster by exhibiting more effective ball movement in their half court sets. Also crucial was moving more quickly on defense to keep up with the screens and the back cuts of the Warriors. But none of these things materialized as Cleveland ceremoniously lost Game 2 , the Warriors trouncing them 110-77, an away game like Game 1 that was also void of the widespread enthusiasm from fans

Cleveland Cavaliers Basketball Player Jeremy Pargo Cleveland Cavaliers Basketball Player Kyrie Irving By Karl Kimbrough, Cleveland Urban News.Com Sportswriter ( ) CLEVELAND,Ohio-Are the Cavaliers getting better or worst as an NBA basketball team serving the major metropolitan city of Cleveland since temporarily losing Kyrie Irving to an injury last month? Is Irving's replacement, Jeremy Pargo, effectively stepping up to the plate? Before Kyrie Irving's finger fracture that sideline the point guard who was drafted by Cleveland as a first all around pick in 2011, a year after Lebron James left the team and joined The Miami Heat, the Cavs had won two games and lost eight.

By Karl Kimbrough, Sports Writer, Cleveland Urban News.Com The first 4:57 seconds of the Browns game against the New York Giants on Sunday seemed too surreal to be true with the Browns having a commanding 12-0 lead over the 2011 Super Bowl Champion Giants.  Unfortunately for the Cleveland Browns and their fans it was too real to be true.

How can the Cleveland Browns draft NFL football players for team success? Should more focus be given to players drafted in mid-rounds?

By Karl Kimbrough, Guest Sports Columnist, Cleveland Urban News.Com ) CLEVELAND, Ohio-The NFL draft has become such a huge theatrical event that in most cities across the country, including Cleveland where the Cleveland Browns are center stage, football fans are glued to their television sets to see who gets the potential star players. But should more focus be given to mid-round draft players since a team can not function on first and second round draftees alone? Fans are mainly interested in those players who are projected to be drafted in the first round.
