Three years before Brian Sipe began his magic with the Cleveland Browns, Bill Fitch and his band of Cavaliers brought a buzz to Northeast Ohio basketball that fans had never seen before. Despite a rough start to their 1975-76 season, the Cavaliers rode the shoulders of Akron native Nate Thurmond to the Central Division title. Under his leadership, they qualified for the playoffs. Then in April the Cavs provided fans with a remarkable string of games against the Washington Bullets, winning in incredible fashion three times--twice at The Coliseum in Richfield--en route to a 4-3 series victory in the Eastern Conference Semifinal.An emotionally charged experience, this was the Cavs' first time in the playoffs. To further the excitement, three of their four victories weren't clinched until the final buzzer. The noise in The Coliseum was so intense that the building shook. Hailed as the "Miracle of Richfield," many maintain that the 1975-76 season remains the most memorable in Cavaliers history--even over the 2006-07 and 2014-15 seasons led by LeBron James.The Miracle of Richfield: The Story of the 1975-76 Cleveland Cavaliers offers readers an inside look at the team, from its slow start winning just 6 of 16 games, the key signing of Thurmond, and winning the Central title to the pulse-pounding playoff series with the Bullets and the disappointing defeat to the Celtics. The '75-76 season--especially the playoffs-- provided Cavs fans with an exhilaration that will never be forgotten.

In the fall of 1999, Wayne Embry was so highly thought of by his peers that he was inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame as a contributor to the game. In the summer of 1999, the Cleveland Cavaliers thought so little of him that they replaced him as general manager. Now in his new autobiography, The Inside Game, Embry, who was once sent home from a game when a bullet was found on his seat, tells the inside story of his fall from grace and the part he believes racism played in it. He deals with the unsavory dealings that led to his departure from the Cavs and introduces startling information about one of the most highly regarded coaches in the league. He discusses the social and economic changes affecting the league and other problems threatening to destroy it. His book is part historical perspective, part inside look behind the scenes, part business strategy and part social commentary

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." Knight ranks last-second nail-biters alongside satisfying routs and postseason epics, from Michael Jordan's franchise-altering shot to the phenomenon known as the Miracle of Richfield. Included in these pages are the heroics of Cavs greats like Bingo Smith, Austin Carr, World B. Free, Larry Nance, Craig Ehlo, Shawn Kemp, and LeBron James. Whether it was because of the score or an amazing individual performance, each game included in Classic Cavs is worth remembering and revisiting. Sure to spark interest and debate, Classic Cavs will appeal to Cavaliers fans everywhere.
