"Cleveland Cavaliers Offseason Post: A Rant and Call To Arms"


  

          

LeBron is gone.
This'll make O_E mad, this'll make Vex mad, this'll make the Laker fans who are now going to root for him mad.

But good. It's time. I'm tired of having to angst over what Golden Piss is doing and whether the Cavs will make the finals, and whether LeBron is going to continue to grift his way through the franchise because of a fucking Microsoft Word font to continue to compete.

I'm not happy that he chose the Lakers (even over a team like Philly), but if he's going to be in chill mode for 4 years after a season like the last, fine. I'll miss those Playoff LeFuckYou 3s, though. If they win a title, that means Golden Piss didn't, so good. It's the Lakers, they have a zillion of them. Fuck Braymond, Binky, PBS Logo, Cupsnake and the rest of em in the goat ass.

I'd rather see Houston or OKC come out of the West though. CP3 getting a ring and/or the continuation of the NyQuil/RedBull Alliance in a post-Snake world is more compelling than a post-Kobe Laker team, unless Ingram ends up being the "Kyrie" of that squad.

Speaking of Kyrie... I am still PISSED that he forced his way out of town. he was my favorite in franchise history. He delivered one of the most signature plays in franchise history. he also promised never to leave. but he was forced out, IMO. and here, LeBron is not, and never will be blameless.

these last two offseasons have been brutal. my two faves ever in the history of being a fan of this team, once playing together, now playing on the two franchises who don't need "help". and that's just what the league wants.


That being said:

going forward, it is imperative to tank. ATL owns the Cavs pick if they fall out of the top 10 next season. Here's where I'll need Gilbert to fall back. The greatest "Fuck You" that can be given will not need to be immediate. Philly did it, people roasted them for it, look at them now. For a team that doesn't have the bullshit landed-gentry pedigree of the Boston Celtics, Philly has landed in my opinion, two great players to actually compete in a now-LeBron-free Eastern Conference.

there are enough good teams from Miami (at the bottom) to Boston (unfortunately, at the top) that the Cavs don't need to wedge themselves right in right away.

they already have more than they were left with in 2010, in Collin Sexton, precisely the kind of "F.U." player that needs to lead this tank in a post-LeBron landscape.

Billy Preston is the kind of flyer that needs to be hung in these times as well. Sign him with the MLE after Summer League. no use in using that for anything else.

fuck around and those two could be the Embiid/Simmons of the New Cavs.

which leaves more.

Cedi Osman, Rodney Hood, Larry Nance, Jr. should be part of the plans for the future.

Flop Gear (Clarkson), JR, TT need to find new homes in the next couple of seasons. If Milwaukee wants to give us Delly back, we'll take him for JR, and you can do whatever with that contract. TT? don't give a fuck, send him to Denver or some shit.

Unfortunately, this also means that Kevin Love will have to be dealt. Never thought he'd be the last man standing from these last 4 seasons. Hopefully it's Utah. He would be able to compete over there. OKC, if they didn't have Melo to deal with. That's where I'd like him to be if it can't be here.

George Hill is conditional. I'd keep him for veteran presence.

Unfortunately, Cavs are stuck with Ty Lue for at least 2 more seasons. Let's hope the Cavs stand in place and give him the boot once it's time. No better coach for a time you need to tank.

Only acquisition I really want to see these next couple seasons is Sam Hinkie. Whatever he's doing? fuck it. Bring him here ASAP.


It's highly unlikely that the Cavs will ever score another LeBron. Or attract another high-tier dude in FA anytime soon, because players do this wack shit of superteams in supercities. I expect the Brooklyn Nets to be that team as the current generation of stars come together. all FOs need to hedge toward this. Especially the Cavs, given the popularity of LeBron and the pervasiveness of his media narratives. So the only way to get a good team now is draft, draft, draft. this mindset will make the future less of a drag.


in closing:

fuck ESPN, fuck Stephen A. Smith, fuck the NBA establishment.

It's gonna suck, but we'll be back eventually. No one's allowed on the bandwagon when it happens.

In 2019, 20 wins or bust. Let the tank roll on.

Yes, I'm mad. Let's move on.

they need to get rid of jr tho.

anyone playing alongside LeBron is a No. 2 by default. that got him a well-deserved ring. Kevin Love has been a blast to have, defensive issues aside, just because of what he can do on offense. remembering dudes like Alonzo Gee playing his role, hell, even TT... it was a breath of fresh air to see him just being able to shoot and hit.

it's all good when you win, but when you don't, or the chemistry ain't there? Sheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeit. we all saw how that went down.

usually, Skip Bayless is the last one you should be listening to when talking anything LBJ related but he hit the nail on the head with that discussion about how Kevin Love was the scapegoat for everything that went wrong.

At this point, not competing for a title, there's no need for Kevin Love to be the "star" of this team. On a playoff team where he doesn't even have to be one of the Big 3? he's got a few more years of that left in his career IMO. even if he goes to the Lakers, it don't matter.

I'm praying that it can be OKC or Utah (provided OKC D-12s Melo as they should).

Yes, I'm mad. Let's move on.

What I said was that he's not an all-star caliber player in the playoffs. We had 4 years to go off of. His production dropped significantly in the playoffs and he shot poorly.

So - good player - not a star in the playoffs.

Upsetting?

Boston
Philly
Toronto
Indy
Washington (someone has to make it from that shitty division)
Bucks

I'd say those six are pretty firm. Miami is very well-coached, they have a shot at getting back in. I felt like Charlotte underachieved a bit last year but then again underachieving is kind of their thing. Detroit and Chicago I could see finishing ahead of Cleveland in their own division. I guess there is a chance because the East is not only lacking in elite teams but also kind of thin now. But if they do make it I think it would signify pretty disappointing seasons for some other teams who are on the cusp of mediocrity.

Let's not push this "Kevin Love is an all-star thing." It is true but the position has been thin, kinda like when Antoine Walker had his run of ASG appearances. That's a line for Bron haters who are also like "JR Smith was a sixth man of the year. Rodney Hood and Jordan Clarkson were some of the best shooting guards in the West. Kyle Korver was an all-star!!!"

Technically he has been an all-star but in reality he is in decline, inconsistent and his best years are behind him. He should get a chance to pad his stats nicely but I don't think he'll reach the levels he did in Minnie.

And you will know MY JACKET IS GOLD when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

so it no longer matters what they do from this point forward.

It was great for him to go to the Lakers. I think that Magic will be great for him at this point in his career. I know that diehard Cavs fans are salty a bit, but as being a fellow Akronite he’ll get support no matter where he went.

The Cavs don’t have to try and tank. They are gonna suck for years to come. The thing is that how the NBA is handling the draft from this point forward will not help them. Fans should be happy that they won a chip and went to 4 straight Finals. The Cavs are in elite company.

Cavs Nation is too reactionary to allow tanking. We have to make it a competitive tank. Losing games by five and 10 points at most because the rules changed so a true tank does not guarantee a good pick. TT gets stretched, JR, Love, Hood, and Clarkson are traded for picks. Love is a prime candidate for a late first round pick from a contender. That solves the salary cap issue.

I want all our developmental guys to get time. Bron wasn't willing to develop young players at all. If JR goes hopefully it's for a pick or a young player that isn't working out at the moment. Bring back TJ Williams while we're at it. We play in an east devoid of legit franchise players compared to the west. There's like three great teams in the east now so we have a chance to get back to the summit in time.

If our next franchise player gets on the Lebron non committal BS then trade him for picks while you can because damn forcing shitty contracts in hopes the player stays.

and will miss the back and forth banter w/ you and other Cavs fans - who surprisingly were able to find common ground between Land Stans and Lebronanon.

2016 will forever be the most memorable and enjoyable NBA experience I've ever had - and that rafter should be etched in gold tethers and over-sized inside the Q. I'm happy for Cleveland that Bron came back just to deliver that Gold.

I hope for the best for the Cavs moving forward - but also feel that Gilbert is a perpetual travesty as owner - and really want to see new leadership at the helm.

The last 4 years were a blast - but also exhausting. I think both sides are happy to move on in mutual departure.

unlike when Bron left for my Heat, this time the Cavs got some pieces to be a low post season team.

i think the Cavs won't be terrible.got a chance to be 7th or 8th seed.

In response to Reply # 28


  

          

did before the draft. at least more than Trae, who I didn't want the Cavs to draft if they were going for a PG.

like, my favorite Cavs have always been guards. LeBron plays like one so that's how he factors in.

But despite having LeGOAT on the team my FAVORITES were Terrell Brandon and Kyrie. In fact, LeBron was like the 1b until the Cavs got to the Finals the first time.

Sexton seems to fit that mold. he ain't a smooth operator like TB, but I think he got the skills for a winning team.

says nothing for Cedi who I think will be a quality NBA wing, and Zizic who can be a quality NBA big.

and if Billy P ends up being ....something? you just might be right.

Yes, I'm mad. Let's move on.

he's been actually good in Euroleague, with a lot of shit he obviously learned from playing with Korver and LeBron.

Cavs just need another. The other forward slot is pretty packed (Love, Nance, TT, and soon to be Preston, who I think will be the Love backup in due time).

and Rodney Hood (whenever the hell they sign him)... don't think he'll be that wing. But who knows.

Yes, I'm mad. Let's move on.

hard to see them having a chance vs celtics, sixers or raptors. if they want to keep love long term who do they need to get rid of to really compete?

if they suck (fighting for 8th seed or worse) which teams would want to trade for love? what would be a realistic return for him?

the new extension isn't all that front loaded, so assuming he has health problems like he's had the post couple of years, it's going to be hard to move him. At least with Blake Griffin, he's somewhat young, so there's some slight promise to the team getting him. Kevin Love is fairly old and will be that much older in a year or two.

In response to Reply # 41


  

          

Griffin is constantly hurt. There is almost zero consistency in Love's production or even his style of play. They can put up some decent numbers now but I wouldn't make a deal for either of them. If the Cavs could get value for Love they would have already traded him but they knew they couldn't so they made this statement about sticking with him no matter what. Griffin didn't fetch a king's ransom or anything either and I bet the Clippers end up winning that trade.

And you will know MY JACKET IS GOLD when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

I like the pick up. Two way player. Could have greatly used someone like him last season (same as Sexton, etc)


But all these guards tells me, someone's about to go. Word is Houston wants JR. Not sure why, and at this point, I'd rather have him an an expiring bench player.

Not sure what happens next.

Our second win of the season finally came last night, and what a game.

The debut of the City jerseys and court, bringing orange and blue back to Cleveland equaled a blowout, an amazing display from Tristan Thompson (trade bait?), David Nwaba, Rodney Hood, Sexton still working hard to improve, even Clarkson and JR got off.

But my favorite part was Channing Frye coming in garbage time to a standing ovation, and then hitting 2 threes like they were nothing. Man, I love this team and the fans so much.

As much of a tank this season will be, that was just great to see.

If they can get something resembling a system set up with this rag tag team, I'll be happy. Can't wait for Cedi to get back.

In response to Reply # 59


  

          

His defense is his weakest point; he's getting killed on screens. he's showing a willingness to improve, and that's paid off. Slowly but surely, his assist numbers are going up. I think he needs to go out from 3 more. Scoring isn't much an issue, but there's some refinement needed.

I think I see a future where he can either be our "Top 5 Tony", Oladipo, or Mike Conley. Which will be critical as the tank adds some new players to the mix.

Yes, I'm mad. Let's move on.
