ownership and the fans have a taste for winning, it's been seen the city supports a winner and you have an owner who seems committed to winning.. he seems to understand that success brings fans in.. i'm not going to say he's done everything right, to be honest i don't follow the cavs inner workings that close but from what i have seen the last few months he's not afraid to spend the money which is half the battle as a fan... a solid gm and an owner that opens his wallet can work miracles
I don't know, man. It is going to be a hard road back after this one. The sad thing is, if we would have known that LeBron James was leaving at the beginning of the FA period, we would have been a player for several guys that would have upgraded the current roster and helped the rebuilding process down the road.
Because of his whole month-long charade and Gilbert thinking that he had to make moves to appease LeBron, we now have a new coach (not necessarily a bad thing, but I think Brown got a bad rap in general), a completely new coaching staff, and a new GM. Meanwhile, we have made zero roster moves.
James basically tore down the entire organization before checking out of town.
Here is a tweet from Brian Windhorst today...
Western Conference executive: "LeBron has done more recruiting in the last five days than he did in the last 3 years."
