Cavs are fittin' to roll.
i don't know what you guys are all celebrating the death of the Cavs this year, but to me this all but assures them, not only a spot representing the east in the NBA Finals, but a MUCH better crack at the warriors than what they had before.

literally every guy they got are players that insiders covet around the league.

the cavs got younger, taller, longer, more athletic, more energy and better shooting today. IT was short and injured. Shumpert can't shoot and was off injured. Wade is crotchety old man glory play and can't shoot 3s. Frye is old. Crowder thrived in a Brad Stevens system and was slow and unmotivated on D. And Rose? R.I.P.

hill is 6'3 and LONG. he was really good in Utah just last year (no one is good in sacramento). he's a good defender and good three point shooter. he is a HUGE upgrade defensively over any point guard previously on the roster.

Clarkson is 6'5. he's an offensive minded player. think of him as a like a taller version of IT with length.

Hood is a knockdown shooter at 6'8. He's also a capable defender. he's been REALLY good when healthy at Utah.

Nance is undersized for the 4, but makes up for it with energy and athleticism.

so add that to Korver and JR and now the cavs have switchable, 3 point shooting perimeter players, who defend way better. the cavs are gonna run some crazy small ball lineups. Four out or Five out. Lebron at Center (Draymond style). And then when Kevin Love comes back, Lebron will be at the 4.

a lineup of Hill, Hood, Korver, Lebron and Love is definitely beating everyone except the Warriors. so you heard it hear first. Cavs will take a minute to gel, then start scoring 120 points a game on people.

They still suck on defense and they aren't close to GS or Houston offensively. They will likely make the finals but that's where it ends, mate.

i think you're wrong on the second part. i think they will be every bit as potent as GS/Houston once Love comes back.

and i don't think they're going to suck on defense any more either. A motivated Hill is a really really good defender, when they used to have the WORST defenders in the league at the point position (IT, ROSE)

My thing is, doesn’t these move help the Lakers clear the space they need for Lebron?

laugh. hill is good. hood is good. korver is the best shooter in the league not named curry. and lebron makes people better. and love is an all star.

you're telling me a lineup of lebron, an allstar, and three people who are REALLY good at what they do can't win? the cavs sucked this year because of fit and people who needed the ball in their hands.

this new team makes basketball sense.

re: Cavs are fittin' to roll.
I like their additions and subtractions, certainly possible it'll translate to some solid winning streaks to conclude the regular season and elevate the Cavs' position as relates to the East playoffs. It works out well, would LOVE to observe how a matchup with Golden State would transpire. Good stuff

A brand new team with those players isn't going to steam roll the east and be better than every other team than GS. 3-5 seed in the east

Shit

They ain't touching Paul, Harden, Gordon, Ariza and Capela running D'antoni's system.

That's the part you are forgetting. Did they trade Ty Lue too?

They got better for sure but they can't hang with Houston or GS bro. They ain't messing with OKC either.

the cavs had the fifth best offensive rating in the league last year. and in the playoffs, they had the best. i think the new lineup is every bit as potent.
