Generously compared to some of the greatest writers in the history of human life, he hopes.

Always open to debate and discuss basketball, football, baseball, or anything you may be interested in.

Right now, somewhere, Mark Cuban is dancing a joyful dance as the upcoming NBA season gets closer and closer. Cuban's Dallas Mavericks had an offseason to remember after stealing Chandler Parsons away from the Houston Rockets, and it may have very well been the most underrated signing of the offseason. This is the same guy who was second on the Cleveland Cavaliers wishlist behind LeBron James. Yes, THAT LeBron James. The return of former Mavericks center Tyson Chandler, a player from their 2011 championship team, will help Dallas to become one of the best teams in the league this season. But just how far can this team go? KEY...

Are the Cleveland Browns turning into a Good Team? Two weeks after losing a heartbreaker to Baltimore and having a bye week to readjust their faulty defense, the Cleveland Browns came out and quickly fell behind by 25 points to the lowly Tennessee Titans. By now we all know that those same Browns made the biggest comeback by a road team in NFL history. With the Browns pulling to an even .500 and rival Pittsburgh coming to town, a positive buzz continues to blanket the city by the lake. Revisiting the Cleveland Browns extremely impressive comeback victory this past Sunday, it’s easy to notice a common theme that has plagued the...

With the MLB season coming to an end and the Cleveland Browns having their bye week, not much happened in the Cleveland sports world over the past seven days. Just a few baseball games, concerned football coaches, and of course, the first Cleveland Cavaliers media day with LeBron James in almost five years. Still, a spirited Cleveland Indians baseball team played their hearts out to the last weekend, and that’s where we’ll begin. Another Cy Young Winner for Cleveland? The Indians remained in the playoff race for 160 games before finally being eliminated. After an abysmal start to the season and a small fire sale at the All-Star...

    Welcome, fans of Sports Unbiased and readers of all kind, to the very first edition of the Cleveland Corner; one of the top-1000 destinations for sports fanatics, especially from Cleveland. In this special first edition, since it begins in 36 days, I’ll strictly be previewing the upcoming Cleveland Cavaliers season. Last year I would’ve been writing this preview in the cold damp comfort of a dark attic; slowly pounding away at a typewriter and downing mug after mug of straight black coffee as I prepared for another typical abysmal season. Instead, like nearly everyone else around the nation, I have sky high...

  Last season featured several of the most prominent NBA franchises dwelling in the basketball cellars with storied franchises like the Boston Celtics and Los Angeles Lakers failing to even come close to the playoffs. Expectations weren't as high as they normally are for the two teams, but neither franchise even garnered more than 27 wins. Then there were teams like the New York Knicks, who despite a late season run, STILL managed to miss the playoffs in the mediocre Eastern Conference. Let's be real here, all the Knickerbockers needed was 38 wins, and they couldn't even manage that. You could keep going on about other teams...

It’s been nearly seven months since the Super Bowl finale of last year’s NFL season and countless things have changed around the league. Johnny Football is a pro, Josh Gordon is suspended for a year, Ray Rice will be missing a couple games, and the first openly gay player was temporarily on an NFL roster. Yet even with all the changes, two very important things have stayed the same. Tom Brady is still a beautiful man, and the Washington Redskins racist namesake remains. For years now people have cried out to the organization, requesting they change their blatantly racist name. Yet, here we are in 2014 using a logo that depicts a...

In a league growing increasingly more competitive, it’s tough to choose a favorite for this year’s NFL Championship. Will the Seattle Seahawks be able to repeat after losing a few components from their Super Bowl team? Can Colin Kaepernick finally lead his San Francisco 49’ers team past Seattle and bring the trophy back to San Fran? Is it possible for Peyton Manning to take his Denver Broncos back to the promised land after last year’s abysmal loss? Exactly how many of these cliche questions can I ask? The preseason favorites are already established, but here are a few dark horse teams that are primed for 2015 Cinderella...

A day after his own target date, new Browns head coach Mike Pettine made his final decision on the quarterback controversy, choosing veteran Brian Hoyer over spark-plug rookie Johnny Manziel. The news comes two days after Manziel made national headlines for simply giving the middle finger to the Washington Redskins bench. Pettine made it clear from the start that Hoyer was the favorite and if the quarterback race remained too close, he would go with the more experienced player. After two straight less-than-impressive performances by both Hoyer and Manziel, Coach Pettine finally pulled the trigger. Despite any naysayers, Brian Hoyer is...

When the Cleveland Browns selected Johnny Manziel in the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft, hopes in Cleveland soared unbelievably high for a team that hasn’t made the playoffs since 2002. Then a day later, in typical Cleveland sports fashion, news emerged that record-setting wide receiver Josh Gordon reportedly failed a drug test. Now, three months later, all of Cleveland awaits the results of Gordon’s appeal hearing. The process has taken abnormally long and some skeptics wonder if he’ll even have to face the whole year-long suspension. Still, the Cleveland Browns have done their best to prepare for the likely loss of Gordon...

Sixteen days before being eligible to be traded, number one pick Andrew Wiggins is heading to Minnesota. The Cleveland Cavaliers and the Timberwolves have agreed in principle to send Kevin Love to Cleveland in return for Wiggins, last year’s number one pick Anthony Bennett, and a protected 2015 first round pick, Yahoo! Sports is reporting. It’s believed that Kevin Love will opt out and resign for five years and over $120 million. It will be just the second time in history that a number one overall pick will be shipped out of town before even playing a game with the team that drafted him. At season’s end it will be hard to...
