Cavs 2017-2018

Will be a very interesting team. A blend of aging stars, stars in their prime, and role players. Iím not sure thereís ever been a team like this before. Will be interesting to see how they all play together.

Preseason game #1 underway, no LBJ and obviously no IT.

Stating the obvious, but a lot will depend on IT's health and whether they have time to mesh when he gets back.

Have tickets for opening night. Will be weird seeing Kyrie in a Boston uni and Wade in a Cavs

Going to be interesting to see what kind of rotation Lue makes with his golden agers.

D Wade steps into the starting 5 over JR. Interesting.

He's starting in the Fall. He'll be 6th man by Spring. He'll play 45-50 games. JR will get plenty of starts.

I'm not sure the starting lineup will matter all that much. The rotation should be pretty even and things will change once IT is healthy, too.

Couldn't agree more. There's going to be some odd combinations out there sometimes, too.

The Cavs are deeper than last season, but that's not saying much. I think this team will have some struggles this season. Too many people under valued what Kyrie did for this team. Wade and Rose are big names that are well past their prime and are injury prone. Neither will give you what you think.

I've never seen a player go from a scrub to star faster than Jae Crowder? Cavs fans think he's suddenly going to become a star? He's a nice role player. Still feel this team is way behind the Warriors, they simply don't have enough defenders.

No one thinks Crowder is a star. He can guard multiple positions, effectively, which the Cavs need. They have ranked near the bottom in defense since LeBron has come back. And he has improved his 3pt shot nearly every year he has been in the league. He will never be an All Star but he's the type of guy you need to win titles. He's one of the better 3&D role players in the league and there's a reason why they are so valued. He is what the Cavs hoped to get out of JR Smith and Iman Shumpert.

I'm shocked you think the Cavs are still way behind the Warriors. I mean Steph Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green aren't even top 20 players in the NBA.

Boston is going to be interesting for Uncle Drew when he falters, which he will, eventually. I hope he is smart enough to lay low when it happens, and ride it out.

Hope they turn up the volume because the boos may drown it out.

No, one of the stupidest comments of ALL time was the letter itself.

Why ought he learn to shut his mouth? Are you like 14Red and think athletes and celebrities shouldn't be allowed opinions?
