I know... but it is what it is.

 

 

Normally, I'd be all about the draft pick but with this particular draft.....

This draft really hasn't looked terribly exciting has it?  That's a fair point.  Ideally we'd add a superstar, but that's not always possible.  Is there even a single high confidence sure star player in this draft?  The draft heads aren't tripping over themselves with excitement this year. 

 

Still, I think it's still a good thing to load a little more young talent on the roster.  Young cheap talent.  This is one of the ways to cast off the Ernie years and change the culture.  Replace an old thin roster of disgruntled vets looking to lengthen their careers with young legs seeking to prove themselves... with the right veterans sprinkled in.

IT dogged it on that last possession.  He had time to score if he'd taken off when he caught the ball.  No excuse for letting the big beat him down the floor.

 

He's made it really difficult to continue liking the way he plays.

Almost tied it up and then IT turns it over with a dumbass pass then in transition he goes to cover the rim despite the fact that Herro is the only one up court and he's running out to the three point line and the big has already covered the middle.

 

Five point swing.  He is an absolutely hopeless defensive player.

When they stop playing IT, i'll know they've convinced themselves the 8th seed is possible

So did the Cavs draft 6-1 point guards with lottery picks in 2018 and 2019?  That doesn’t seem like a great way to build a team.  

 

have they ever done anything right besides having the good fortune to be in the state in which LeBron was born?

I have no idea, like the rest of the basketball world I only really took notice of them when Lebron played there.  I can’t name 5 players on that team even though I just finished watching them play.

They are a dumpster fire. They were stupid to give a bunch of extensions to guys like JR Smith, Tristan Thompson after the championship and more recently Kevin Love, Osman and Larry Nance Jr. They are going to suck for years they way they are building.

Troy Brown Jr. and Ish Smith both made some sick moves near the basket last night in the second half. 

 

Ish has been very consistent in finishing around the rim. He seems to have a knack for applying just the right amount of english to his shots. With his improved jumpshot, he may be playing himself out of backup money next year. Hope we can retain him though, he'd be a good backup for Wall and potential starter should wall's recovery hit a snag

MUST watch interview with Bradley

 

 

That was a good one. Some nuggets worth paying attention to. Beal is firmly in the camp of wanting to go for that playoff spot. Does that put him at odds with a front office that has stated they dont want to do that. Is appeasing brad and being swept my milwaukee or boston worth bringing in a role player that offers immediate help this year, but little return past that.  Do we keep bench pieces that could potentially be flipped?

 

Beal expressed a lot of loyalty to the team and city, but didnt/couldnt answer how much he could stand.

 

Its an interesting situation that could force Shepp to alter his stated plans.
