They won’t like being second best but it may just be a good thing for Tyronn Lue’s men this year.
The Cavs have LeBron back, Kevin Love is healthy, Kyrie Irving is Kyrie Irving and they can probably say ‘Hello’ to another NBA Finals appearance.
LeBron signed a new two year deal this year and is waiting on his long term friend J.R. Smith to do the same. The shooting guard, if he re-signs, will add an outside threat and outstanding perimeter defence.
The Cavs passed up their draft picks this year. Instead they paid $2.4million for the 54th pick, according to Jonathan Givony of DraftExpress. With this pick they took Kay Felder, the 5ft 9inch point guard impressed during college and had averages of nine assists and 23 points.
The Cavs picked up Mike Dunlevey JR from the Bulls who, when fit, shoots the ball well.
Chris Anderson rejoins LeBron James after playing with him at Miami. His minutes may be restricted but the big man makes a strong impression when out on the court.
Watch out for – Tristan Thompson – aggressive rebounder
The Cavs have it all but may just fall short to super team Warriors.
