Well, that turned out to be a farce. Cavs got their doors blown off.
4th straight for the Jazz and playing really well as a team.
Rudy Gobert deserves an all star spot but getting guys voted in from Utah is tough. I wish the Jazz got some more national attention because they are a fun group to watch.
Yo spice.... The Cavs are hurting bro!!! Losing 4 of 7. Kyrie drops 49, LeBron drops a triple double, and they still lose to the Pelicans without Davis?
LeBron is screaming out at the front office through the media. I keep hearing we need a backup point guard, we need a playmaker.
They need a big man as well imo. I'm getting discouraged. The rotation stinks, Kyrie, LeBron & Love are logging too many minutes. I wouldn't want to be in Griffin's shoes right now, I know that. Something has to change, and they may have to give up a Shump, or someone to get something solid in return.
Man, how fast things can change. I know, this is the part where you say it's midseason & that this happens every year, and I'm overreacting lol. What's your take on this situation?
They mortgaged this team's future to bring in too many old guys. Delly was a huuuuuge loss, and that's the main problem. They didn't play good defense until late last year, and there's no way they're going to flip the switch this year w/o him. Not having an elite pick and roll point guard (and Delly is every bit of that), who can pressure the ball in relief for Kyrie took too much away. PGs who bring defensive intensity are contagious to the rest of the team defensively. I do have a feeling they'll turn it around offensively, though. Need to get JR back as well. Don't see them beating GS, even though GS still does the same stupid stuff that got them beat last year. GS plays basketball like it's a pick up game, but they're so much better than everyone else that it doesn't matter if they take stupid shots and turn the ball over in critical situations.
McGee has been good enough, and Durant is balling. Durant has really become the complete player I didn't think he would ever be.
We could go out and sign Jarret Jack, he's a back up point guard. We need the bodies, just like LeBron said.
Birdman needs to be bought out. Lue is refusing to play McCrae, and the rookie. His rotation is way too small for the regular season imo.
We need to make a couple of moves, and we'll be fine. We need someone that can set up the offense besides LeBron (backup point guard), and maybe a big man. I just read the Cavs turned the Kncks down for a Love/Anthony trade which was smart imo.
Only LBJ and Kyrie are averaging over 2 assists a game average. 2 players, that's it, and it's weak. The Warriors have 7 players averaging over 2 assists per.
We need JR Smith back too. I think that dude may be the heart of the team
I didn't come to the NBA thread to hate on the NBA but I really wish there were a harder cap or something. The lack of competitive balance from top to bottom in the league makes it really hard for me to be interested
Why watch the regular season if we all know the finals are going to come down to a combination of Golden State/San Antonio vs Cleveland? Don't try to convince me Toronto or Houston or anyone else even has a shot...
