Delly, coffee the subject of GQ feature story

Last season, Matthew Dellavedova‘s ritual of drinking coffee about and hour-and-a-half prior to tipoff became national news when he played a significant role in the Cleveland Cavaliers‘ run to the NBA Finals.

Since then, the former Saint Mary’s guard has signed a deal with Cleveland Coffee Company to produce a blend of coffee called “G-Day Mate.”

Check out this feature by GQ writer Alex Wong that outlines how the deal came about and more about Delly’s popularity in Cleveland.

Delly and the Cavs are currently headed into Friday’s game 6 of the NBA’s Eastern Conference Finals against Toronto with a 3-2 series lead.  A Cleveland series victory against the Raptors would ensure a former Saint Mary’s basketball player would appear in a NBA Final in each of the last four seasons.
