The only thing I can think of here is that the Cavs are drafting for people who they think can score without the benefit of plays/good coaching because they know Mike Brown can't do that. He won't draw up a system that maximizes players offensive abilities, especially if they're limited. What he can do is draw up a defense to mask players who are bad at it which is what we need for pretty much everyone on our team. Hopefully we can scrape a top 15/top 10 D together somehow and I think the offense will take care of itself.

The offense certainly will now that the cavs have 3 guys that can create for themselves. Those same three guys can spot up as well.

I wanted Noel and I could live with Porter or Bennett.

Grant has also been very good at evaluating talent since he came here, so I'll defer to him on this one. The kid obviously has a lot of upside. He's a talented offensive player. Now, defensively? Mike Brown has his work cut out for him.


RBA I feel you, but didnt people say the same thing about Waiters last year? He never turned up defensively, but he wasnt an embarrasment as far as i can remember. I was curious about that Grant statement. in my opinion, he is a SF, not even a tweener. Isnt LBJ 6'8"? Isnt Melo? Isnt Jeff Green? I dont understand what the problem with him being the SF is. Maybe he will be a milsap -type..

Default Re: I'm fukkin done with the Cavaliers!!

A couple of interesting things have surfaced since draft night:

Bennett did gain weight because he was injured all offseason, but according to beat writers and Coach Brown, he is working extra hard to get himself in condition.

Bennett has an absolutely gigantic frame. He is wider than Andrew Bynum and has a longer wingspan than Big Z. No way is he undersized at the 4. I think his career weight will be 250+ lbs.


Despite being a fat boy, Bennett has a confirmed 39'' vertical.

Kyrie Irving said he knew that Bennett was going to be drafted a week before the draft.

He definitely will come off the bench, IMO if not all year the majority of the year. Coach Brown won't give him minutes if he doesn't learn how to consistently box out and get back on transition. This is a good thing IMO.



I am very high on Bennett. I think he is a future stud in the making. He won't get minutes for ROY this year, but in a few years i would not be surprised if he isn't a top 5 PF in the league.

has there been a number 1 draft pick that didn't start in his rookie season?
I'm curious
