I can only imagine how difficult this news must be for season ticket holders of the Canton Charge. My sympathies, you guys. Christian Eyenga is moving on though, and the direction he's heading is up. Back up to the Cleveland Cavaliers that is, effective immediately. This according to a report earlier today by Fox Sports.com's Sam Amico, who tweeted that Christian had been re-called from the Cavaliers D-League affiliate and is back on Broadway. Or back approximately near where South Broadway turns into Ontario.
Sam also mentioned that after missing Saturday's game for personal reasons, Daniel Gibson was practicing today as well, and that it's yet to be determined whether or not Tristan Thompson's ankle will hold him out of Tuesday's game in Miami.
Relevant information to be sure, but this is Skyenga's day. And while the term "slow start" only begins to describe the way he opened this Lockout shortened season, the fact of the matter remains that he is indeed back. Regardless of whatever. He'll have another opportunity here shortly to soar through the NBA skies once again, and my only hope is that Dave Wooley is ready to report back for duty here at StepienRules.com in order to continue chronicling Skyenga's further rise through the Cavaliers scoring ranks.
I have a feeling that somebody on this Cavs team could become the modern NBA version of Wally Pipp shortly too, if Skyenga ends up filling in for them over the next few games here, so keep an eye out for that as well. Good luck Christian, and congrats my man.
More later on the Cavaliers match-up tomorrow with Norris Cole and the Miami Heat.
Left tackles who can't block premier pass rushers either get yelled at, or get helped by having a FB chip the rusher.
Great coaches accept what an athlete can and can not do.
Yelling never made anybody faster, taller, stronger.
You can't change people.
Eyenga is a gifted athlete with a different approach to the game.
Used in the right way, he can be invaluable.
Derided, despised, the young man can be ruined athletically & personally.
@Bric good points Bric. I agree that if Eyenga is used the right way he can be invaluable for sure. He deserves a shot, coupled with the proper support from team and coaching staff. Hope he gets that opportunity here.
