9781606350119: Classic Cavs: The 50 Greatest Games in Cleveland Cavaliers History (Classic Cleveland)

A countdown of the Cleveland Cavaliers’ greatest games -- It’s far too easy to allow the national media and disparaging fans to undermine Clevelanders’ views of their professional sports teams. While the Browns, Indians, and Cavaliers have caused more than their fair share of frustration and heartbreak over the past century, there are countless moments of glory in the fertile athletic history of Northeast Ohio that receive little notice east of Shaker Heights or west of Rocky River. Jonathan Knight’s Classic Cleveland series sets out to combat this trend, bringing together the most memorable moments of Cleveland’s beloved athletic clubs. In three separate publications, Knight ranks the fifty greatest games in each franchise with entertaining accounts of each contest, properly placing them in the broad landscape of civic history.

Review:

"There's no hotter ticket in town than one to a Cavs game at the Q. But if you're not lucky enough to be able to pick one up for the mostly sold-out season, try the next best thing. The entertaining Classic Cavs: The 50 Greatest Games in Cleveland Cavaliers History takes you inside some of the biggest games in franchise history." 
-Cleveland Plain Dealer

"Classic Cavs will keep a winning season going..." 
-Akron Beacon Journal

"I'll admit that I first picked up Classic Cavs because its premise made me smirk. Half the people who saw me reading it made the same remark: 'That looks depressing.' Not really. I'm thankful Jonathan Knight did this." 
-Grantland.com

Book Description Kent State University Press, United States, 2009. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. This is a countdown of the Cleveland Cavaliers greatest games. It s far too easy to allow the national media and disparaging fans to undermine Clevelanders views of their professional sports teams. While the Browns, Indians, and Cavaliers have caused more than their fair share of frustration and heartbreak over the past century, there are countless moments of glory in the fertile athletic history of Northeast Ohio that receive little notice east of Shaker Heights or west of Rocky River. Jonathan Knight s Classic Cleveland series sets out to combat this trend, bringing together the most memorable moments of Cleveland s beloved athletic clubs. In three separate publications, Knight ranks the fifty greatest games in each franchise with entertaining accounts of each contest, properly placing them in the broad landscape of civic history. Regardless of what the current editions of the Browns, Indians, and Cavaliers accomplish, every contest played is another chapter in an epos connecting each generation of fans to the ones before it. The Classic Cleveland series colorfully illustrates that regardless of today s final score, the simple continuation of the saga is reason enough for reflection and celebration. Classic Cavs counts down the fifty greatest Cleveland Cavaliers games, from their 67-loss inaugural NBA season in 1970-71 through their record-breaking 66-win campaign in 2008-9. The rich, four-decade history of the Cavs is woven into these tales, tying together the early games at rickety old Cleveland Arena, the incredible highs and heartbreaking lows played out at Richfield Coliseum, and the fierce battles waged at the Q .
