As long as they are competing on the floor and rebuilding in the office, that's great.


This is not an either/or situation. I know that this is difficult for you, but your mind is going to have to embrace the two concepts simultaneously or it is going to be really tough for you to process what you are going to be seeing over the next few years.




I hope this helps

I love Channing Frye. Never should have included him in the deadline deals last year

Is it his defense that makes you such a fan ? Potential effectiveness against the Warriors ?


He would have been more useful than Perkins, I guess...........unless you consider intimidating Drake important.


Glad to have Frye back now.

What's your vertical, Brian? You just might be part of the Cavs' process.

Well, when I realized from the forum page that you had the last post of the new page in this particular thread, I felt certain that you would be responding to clark's comment on senior citizen discounts. I never dreamed that you would be running the NBA scouting combine, Counsellor

Whatever happens to the Cavs, they will always have the world's best intro music.

14Red is an unknown quantity at this point
For the first time in years, I'll actually semi-root for the Cavs. I don't think they'll be as bad as people think.

If you remember, in the playoffs this year, they actually played pretty well when LB was out of the game. They have some young talent and I don't think you'll see the demise that many think. They do need to get alot better defensively, and some of that may actually be due to LB being gone. He was terrible on defense last season.

Interesting notes from Terry Pluto on Sexton, Osman, Zizic and Preston in the summer league-

Anyone have an over/under for how many games before brian sez "This team sucks, they are horrible!"?


Granted, he starts at, "Ty Lue is awful. He must be fired.". I guess an over/under could be appropriate there, but the under "window" would only be from like 3 to 7, so you'd have to put at like 8.5 to balance the action, and that just strikes me as a horrible risk.

Any 1227 prognosticators out there ?


sorry I didn't write this in brian, but my translation feature is a little buggy. Chrome must be updating the brian extension.

Probably like 4-5 games. Although this team won't suck that bad if they don't fire sell Love, Korver, etc. before the season, bring Hood back and bring in another old veteran locker room presence such as Richard Jefferson.

After Boston, Philly, Toronto and maybe Milwaukee that roster is probably as good as anybody else in the East on paper if they feel like saying to hell with tanking. Certainly good enough that Lue would deserve to be fired if they went sub-.500 and/or didn't make the playoffs.

I will say, if nothing else I'm excited to watch Sexton and Cedi this year. IMO, the only thing that can stop Sexton from being one of the best rookies is Lue being a dolt that plays George Hill 32-34 minutes a game at PG.

Parts of his skill set can translate immediately, for sure.

I'd actually have no problem with Sexton on the floor with Hill, even if 2 is a #2 with no 3. His D can help offset the holes in his O.

I think it would be just another way to learn the NBA game more quickly. Watching only goes so far in this sport.

They may not be as competitive, it will be fun to watch a team without knowing the LeBron is pulling all the strings. Would be great to see them get to 50 wins and go as far as the Lakers in the post-season.

Wouldn't it be ironic if LeBron hamstrung the Lakers for the next 5 years because of his demands?

The Cavs just extended Love for 4 years and $120 million. Wow. He's now on the books for the next 5 years.

I think it's safe to say they aren't going to tank. Unless somebody offers him a ton (unlikely), I'd guarantee Hood will be back.

That's a lot of money for a guy on the down side of his career, but I am OK with it. He's been a good citizen and given a decent effort. He's a little fragile, but keeps his mouth shut and stays out of trouble.

Kevin Love has played 63 games with the CAVS winning 43,his numbers will increase without LBJ.Hope he can rebound a little stronger and he should have the ball more to be a better scorer.

Everybody thinks winning a NBA Championship is the only thing ... while I agree it should be the ultimate goal ... but reality says for teams like Cleveland it is only a remote possibility ... fifteen years ago, they got lucky to have the top pick in the draft when one of greatest players of all time was coming into the league, the kept him for seven seasons ... and had only one NBA finals appearance ... he left ... four years later he came back, only because he was from the area ... and they won one NBA Championship ... he left again ... so with all that luck they only won one championship in 11 seasons with one of the greatest player of his time ... the odds of that happening again ... slim ... with all that said, I have readjusted my goals ... l just want to see good competitive basketball ... like Indiana & Utah have given their fans for the past 30 years ... not like Sacramento have given their fans ... a lot of words to say I am happy that the Cavs have signed Kevin Love and are going try to rebuild not tank.

Scouting needs to improve tremendously. With a few exceptions, their draft selections relative to draft position have been awful since LeBron left the first time.

There's almost always a draft sleeper or guy that slides that you can get between picks 12-18 that ends up being good. Those are the picks they have to hit on to be a Utah or Indiana type of franchise going ahead.

Got to get rid of JR,get Hood back into the game and another piece and maybe Lue can put the puzzle together with a lot of help.

Amen ... get rid of JR ... he is inconsistent on offense and down right terrrribble on defense ... donít let him contaminate the other players ... if Lue continues to play this loser then it will be proof that JR has something incriminating on Lue ... that is the only explanation.
