Cavs tickets have been in demand since LeBron James announced his return — season-ticket packages sold out that same day. Additonally, the Cincinnati Enquirer reported Friday that Xavier’s allotment of 3,000 tickets to the Oct. 15 preseason game between the Cavs and Indiana Pacers sold out in 10 minutes.
Those tickets were set aside for Xavier season ticket holders and donors, according to the Enquirer, while students lined up around Cintas Center on Friday for their chance at 900 student tickets. The game will be played at Cintas Center on Xavier’s campus.To read more or comment...
The Cavaliers announced the signing of Shawn Marion on Tuesday after he agreed to join the team last month. Terms of the deal were not released, but it’s believed to be a one-year deal for the league minimum.
Marion, 36, joins the Cavs after spending the last five years with the Dallas Mavericks. He has been a starter throughout his 15 seasons, but will come off the bench for a Cavs team now loaded with talent.
“I’m excited to be a Cavalier,” Marion said in a release. “I can see the hunger and mentality of everyone in the organization and l look forward to being a part of it. The goal is to win a championship and that’s what I want.”
Marion, a four-time All-Star, already won one title as a member of the Mavericks. He has averaged 15.8 points and 9 rebounds throughout his career, averaging 10.4 points and 6.5 rebounds last season with the Mavericks.To read more or comment...
Kyrie Irving appears to have escaped an injury scare relatively unscathed during Team USA’s 95-71 victory against Ukraine in Thursday’s World Cup preliminary round.
Irving landed hard on his tailbone and remained on the ground for several moments before he was helped off the court and limped to the locker room late in the game. Irving told ESPN after the game the fall looked worse than it was and wrote on his Twitter account he’s fine.
“I’m all good everybody, just a tough fall,” Irving wrote. “Appreciate the concern.”
Irving told ESPN he will not miss any time. The Americans play again on Saturday in the round of 16 in Barcelona.To read more or comment...
