    Default 2017-18 Season New Hunger The Must Win Now Season

    What if I told you .. Kyrie Quit Playing for Rings .........to expand his brand ?
    Last June ?
    Then I said don't worry we will be better without him. That's what I'm saying. would not of believed it myself.

    We added 2 HOF players, a All-Star, plus a top defensive player. oh yea Jeff Green too.. is only 30, playing on his best team ever, taking over a 80% pay cut from last year.

    Who knows who we will have next year on our team this is The Must Win Now Season. save Wade these newbies have never been in a Finals Hunger they are.

    Here they are, what And where do they fit ? the deepest team in our History by a mile. 3 must go. 3 are going to be in Suits some nights. I'm say it now this team if healthy will play .500 ball or better when LBJ needs a night off.

    LeBron James
    Kevin Love
    Tristan Thompson
    J.R. Smith
    Iman Shumpert
    Channing Frye
    Kyle Korver
    Jae Crowder
    Jose Calderon
    Jeff Green
    Dwyane Wade
    Derrick Rose

    Isaiah Thomas
    Richard Jefferson
    Ante Zizic
    Walter Tavares
    Kay Felder
    Cedi Osman

    Go Cavs

    We are so much better, I didn't know if it was possible.

    Last year I commented a couple of times when Kyrie was out and Love was healthy, just how good they looked.

    I don't see anyone beating us in a series.

    I can't stand it when a player whines to me or his teammates or his wife or the writers or anyone else.
    A whiner is almost always wrong. A winner never whines.

    Man I am excited for this season.

    You guys know me, I just love the game. I'm like a basketball polygamist except for the Clippers and the Warriors. Fuck those teams.

    I just need something else to think about right now.

    The Cavs should be great, if Thomas can be healthy but man it will be nice to have a proper backup to LeBron in Crowder. Lue will prove himself this season because he will have a roster where he's capable of coming up with some creative lineups. There are a lot of new, interesting faces in Cleveland and I'm excited to see how it shakes up. I agree, deepest team Cleveland has ever seen.

    I don't think any team in the East really made enough of a splash to make a difference. OKC stole the off-season IMO, but they had no choice. Maybe you could say it's sports karma but they'll be a team to watch.

    My Grizzlies will be a different team. The players who created the identity of the Grizz over the last decade, Tony Allen and Zach Randolph, both are gone. The Grizzlies have drafted terribly. Conley and Gasol are not getting any younger, and they didn't really do much in regard to bringing in help. They could still make some noise in the bottom end of the west but their days of being a funwrecker are over until they can hit on a first round pick or coach up some talent.

    The Raptors won't address the elephant in the room, in fact they just decided to throw money at it. Sure, it's the most successful iteration of the Raptors that they've ever seen but the core they have with DeRozan and Lowry at its heart will only take them as far as they've already been and IMO they won't see that kind of success again IMO (East Final), especially not if they have to play Cleveland in the second round like last season. Coach Casey is also a lame duck but who knows what the future holds for this Raptors team but my money is on them chosing to blow it up and re-build before they reach the ultimate goal.

    Default So Ready

    For the season to start with the Tribe choking and that Football team.

    Wish we could be there to give Kyrie the booing he deserves so much. wanting to go out on his own is one thing but the remark about a "Real Sports town" give it a rest. there is no better sports town in the country than C-town period.

    LBJ is injured that's right after 13 years it has happened. he never missed this much pre season. one thing for sure if he can get up he'll play tonight. even without the King we should kick that ass.

    If LeBron is hurt, he should rest. IMO the team may have a rocky start without him but we have more than enough talent on paper to see how much of a vortex Kyrie Irving really was...

    No LeBron, no NBA Final. That's a fact.

    I'm curious as to how well DRose, Osman and Love in the middle are going to play. Wade is done. Calderon too. Has Shump even attempted to get some type of reliable offensive game? Can Crowder be a better shooter?

    Lots of new faces.

    Default Game/Win #1

    That was a emotional game. can't remember a worse looking injury. some of the knee blowouts sure are bad but this takes the cake. right up there with Joe Theismann.

    Both teams were off no matter the reason. both teams are different from last year. closing out the game with Wade. Rose & Love is a bit shocking when seen with ones eyes. none are stoppers on D or even good. TT & JR on the bench seemed weird. Ty might have to.............. think about that.

    But like LBJ said we got the win.

    We have 3 back to backs coming up next, Calderon & Osman be ready.

    That Gordon Hayward break reminded me immediately of Psycho Sid Vicious' nasty leg break from jumping and landing off-center (though professional wrestling is supposed to mitigate those things...) it was uncomfortable to watch. Huge bummer for him.

    Ty definitely will have some work to do with the lineups but like I said, this is where he will prove his true worth as a coach. Better coaches have, and will continue to, exploit his poor rotations unless he can find a good balance.

    The win is all that matters and I've seen worse injuries unfortunately. Wade looks so old. DRose had a couple nice drives and a 3 to end the quarter. Does Frye get into any of the rotations at all against good teams? Same with Osman, Calderon and that one guy at the end of the bench.

    Probably not.

    That's why I've been riding Coach Lue's ass about rotations for two years. We're too deep to be rolling anything less than a 10 man bench. He would have to do a 13-14 man rotation to work those guys in (after Thomas is healthy). I don't think any coach goes that deep in to their bench. Might be an interesting research idea for a time I'm bored but I digress... 10 man bench is ideal, and we still have guys who are going to be neglected. Not a terrible dilemma to have.

    It's game one, but don't expect to see a lot of Frye (except against teams where he would be an obvious mismatch) and especially don't expect to see a lot of the kid, Osman. He should be getting in D league. Ditto for Calderon who is basically a end-of-his-career Vet who we should only see if/when injuries call for it. He'd be a token 5 minutes a night otherwise, and that's without IT in the mix.

    Odds are, one or two of these guys will be moved at or by the trade deadline. We've got a lot of glut on the wings especially. LeBron, Crowder, Wade, Smith, Shump, Korver, Green and Osman is a 3-4 in the making it seems as well.

    That's where he will need to show the most care with his minutes. JR Smith is already chirping about losing minutes to Dwayne Wade.

    Kyrie couldn't win without LBJ as a Cavalier and now as a Celtic.
    somethings never change. but he's the man ..lol

    Meanwhile Delly had at least 7 in the 4th as the Bucks rolled.

    Don't see them moving much. maybe if Korver doesn't fit in before the All-Star game. we got the Nets pick to use......... but what do we need ? ...besides good health.
    might want to hold on to that pick unless it's a player with 3 or 4 years left and a stud. other wise that pick is the future
    a future without LBJ ...let's hope not.

    JR is fine .......he's not flat earth Kyrie.

    In the near future if Jose can hold up 10 minutes a night the next week or so that would help.

    Don't get me wrong, it's not a given but if we decide we have a need all of a sudden, we have more than enough ammo to make a deal. Having depth and talent is a good problem to have.

    As much as they can be frustrating, EE, there's something to be said for the unBrownsiness of the Grizz & Raps: make the playoffs almost every year, reward foundational players with long-term deals, then hope an Anunoby or Brooks lifts you higher up in the league's middle class.

    And it's hopefully a relief to both players and fans that the pigskin-associated health risks are absent, replaced with small-to-medium-bore fears that a Marc Gasol might revert to his high school chunkitude, or Kyle Lowry's backside could develop its own gravitational pull.
