Curious what the Cavs could offer trade wise. More questions than answers with the roster they now have.

I'm excited to see what this team can do. I think we'll see the Kevin Love that we all saw when he was in Minnesota and he will be the leader of this team. There is young talent here and I'm looking forward to seeing what the identity of this team will be. Life after Lebron had to start at some point so now is as good of a time as any. I think this team will be better than the "experts" think they will be. How funny would it be to see this Cavs team make a playoff run while the Lakers either miss the playoffs or take a first round exit?

Lue is installing a new positionless motion passing offense. Translation, they'll pass the ball and accomplish nothing for 15 seconds, then run a pick and roll.

I don't hate the move. It's what the NBA is moving to. It remains to be seen if Lue and the Cavs are able to execute it though.

Exactly.

I always think back to something I heard Bob Huggins say once, that every game comes down to the teams running their basic offenses which the other has seen a million times and can defend, for two thirds of the shot clock, then they give up and run a pick and roll.

So35 way to low collin sexton is the next kyrie. So cavs traded kyrie and turned it into collin sexton.jordan clarkson, larry nance, rodney hood, george hill and ante zicic, that provided cavs team to win the nba title.

I agree about Collin Sexton and I think he's gonna be a great player for the Cavs. This team has a little bit of everything. I think we'll see alot of guys getting involved in the offense and different guys stepping up each night with K-Love being our most consistent scorer and rebounder. I think this team is going to be better than most people think they're gonna be.

I might be in the minority, but I am delighted that we don't have to hear, "LeBron, LeBron," every two seconds. "The game is over, let's talk to LeBron." " Hey, Kevin Love, what did you think of LeBron's performance tonight?" Then we get LeBron, " Well, I did this and I did that. My team, etc." I think most of the players are also relieved that they can be themselves, not little servants for LeBron. Even though they will not win as many games, maybe we can get to know who they are, instead of the media being exclusively " LeBron."

Come on, guys, let's pump the brakes on this nonsense. The Cavs are not going to sniff an NBA title, and I think everyone on here recognizes that. I'm glad a lot of people aren't completely dismissing them as total failures this year. They might even squeeze out a #7 or #8 seed in the East.

I'm more prone to take this position:

Quote:

But they are not title contenders and they won't be as long as Golden State and Boston (just to get out of the East) remain intact or Kevin Durant opts-out after this year and he and Kawhi Leonard join you-know-who in Los Angeles for the 2019-20 season. Weirder things have happened.

I just don't see James going to L.A. and play with Magic Johnson's collection of head cases. I think it's a stop-gap until he signs some legitimate free agents and gives some of the younger guys a year to practice and play with James. Otherwise, it just makes no sense for James to play in L.A. just to get paid. There had to be a longer term plan beyond signing some of those misfits. Or maybe, just maybe, he actually is placing basketball and business on the same level of importance.
