Trust me.

The pictures look better than the Erie BayHawks did in their 116-90 loss to the expansion Maine Red Claws.

Check out the Erie Times-News photo gallery of the game.

We had a lot of fun with this.

After Thursday’s practice, the Erie BayHawks did some video for us and this is the result of it. The guys seem to have a good time with it at LECOM, which is where the BayHawks practice.

The BayHawks (2-2) play their home opener against the Maine Red Claws (3-1) at Tullio Arena. Thes crazy thing about this opener is the BayHawks will have their first practice in the arena later today in their afternoon shootaround.

The Erie BayHawks blew a 16-point halftime lead, but beat the Sioux Falls Skyforce, 109-107, Saturday as they head into their home opener Saturday, Dec. 12, against the expansion Maine Red Claws at Tullio Arena with a 2-2 record.

Leemire Goldwire had a chance to win the game for the Skyforce (2-2), but missed a 3-pointer at the buzzer after Erie center John Bryant missed a pair of free throws with 4.1 seconds remaining in overtime.

The Erie BayHawks released Erie native Joe Jones earlier today and kept former Gannon power forward Kyle Goldcamp.

Jones’ downfall was his lack of strength. At 6-foot-3 and 180 pounds, Jones just didn’t match up physically with the bigger guards in camp.

I talked to Erie coach John Treloar today and he simply said Jones, who starred at Edinboro and Cathedral Prep,  needs to get in the weight room.

Now Jones doesn’t have to become this big ol’ brut. That would take away his quickness. With those broad shoulders, Jones could put on at least 15 to 20 more pounds.

When you’re in the media, you get to know guys from other markets both regional and national.

So you show love when you see them.

The one guy I have to talk to every time he’s at a Cavalier game is TNT NBA anaylst Doug Collins.

That’s my dude right there.

These things are always entertaining.

LeBron James spoke for about 10 minutes before the game to media. Now you’ve got national media here like ESPN and of course TNT is covering the game so there’s plenty of folks to ask last season’s MVP questions.

Some of them are good. Others are weird. Some made James respond, “Ya’ll want to know every damn thing. man. Damn. I’m just saying, dang. You can’t have no secrets.”

Here’s a few examples:

Good evening

Here in Cleveland getting ready for what feels like a playoff game.

It’s only the opener, but a serious buzz is running through Quicken Loans Arena for tonight’s game between the Cavaliers and the Boston Celtics.

Just some quick bits.

Cleveland guard Delonte West is out for today’s game. As you know, West’s wife filed a domestic violence report on him Monday. He was already facing bi-polar issues and the weapons charge.

That’s  a lot on that young man’s plate to deal with. He is in the arena, is dressed and will warm up with the team, but will not play. Who knows when he will go. It’s a sad situation really.

Be back in minute.

If Springfield is able to keep Marcus Campbell, it will have a true enforcer in the paint.

The D-League had its expansion draft for Springfield and Maine today.

Springfield used the first pick to tab 7-footer Marcus Campbell while Maine took athletic swing man James White, who finished the 2008-09 season in the NBA with the Houston Rockets.

Unlike a year ago when Erie and Reno picked unprotected players from the remaining D-League teams, Springfield and Maine picked guys from 2009 D-League champion Colorado and Anaheim, two teams that are now defunct.

Hmmm.
