The New York Times’ NBA writer Marc Stein is hoping the struggling Cleveland Cavaliers can right the ship in time to make another deep playoff run.
“Cleveland’s success personally impacts me greatly because every trip to Cleveland means I’m only a three-hour drive from sneaking to Buffalo,” said Stein, an Olean native, during an appearance Monday on “The Bucky & Sully Show” on 1270 The Fan.
Stein, who has an old Buffalo Braves image on his Twitter page, also discussed the MVP chatter generated by the recent play of New York Knicks’ star Kristaps Porzingis, the top storylines in the NBA through the first few weeks, and what to make of his beloved Buffalo Sabres after watching their recent loss in Dallas.
“Four goals allowed in 13 minutes, I was not a pleasure to be sitting next to,” Stein said. “But at least I did meet Danny Gare and Rene Robert at the end of the night, so it wasn’t a total loss.”
