Default How many games would Cavs win without Lebron?

ok... when you really look the Cavs team you realize that they're a bunch of role players and above average player in Mo Williams... I think a team with Mo Williams as THE guy would win about 30 games... Cavs will probably win 60-64 games... Lebron is unbelievable.

Cavs would have less to play for, so guys like Hickson and Kinsey would be getting more minutes. Everybody elses numbers go up. Mike Brown still has them playing D. I see them winning 40-50 games if everyone is healthy. Just missing the playoffs.

Are you speaking of this team with James injured and out, or a team with someone else in his place? Big difference.

Ooooh. Not so well. Even if everyone else really stepped up, I imagine you'd have to knock off 10-15 wins. Mo can't play 48 min. Who else would handle the ball? I like Junior Gibson, but I worry when he's the ball handler.

Honestly, if Lebron tore his ACL on Nov 1 this team would probably win 32 games and miss the playoffs... as it looks now the Cavs are gonna win 62 games.... Lebron is responsible for 30 wins.... MVP anyone?

I'd say around 35-40. That's more than you guys are saying, but people would take them for granted without LeBron and I think with some of the character guys on this team (Z, Wallace, etc), they wouldn't let a major catastrophe occur.
