Default Cavs are toast - their bench sucks

Irving/Fedler
JR Smith/Shumpert ( assuming JR resigns)
Lebron/Dunleavy/Jefferson
Love/Frye
Thompson/Andersen


Compare that to golden state, its weak bench. Iguodola - Livingston better then entire bench of Cleveland. Even last year Cavs bench was better with MO, Dellavadova and Mozgov.

I could fill in the rest but the bench looks fine to me, Griff will bring someone in at the deadline just as he has the last two years. The cavs have a couple of trade exceptions to work with.

Very good supporting cast. Cavs always role with 1 star on the team so they never play through a role player the way other teams do. This is how the Miami Heat was able to win with a lot of good supporting role players like Battier (Jefferson), Birdman (Birdman), Norris Cole (some other d-league player), Udonis (Dunleavy) etc. Dunleavy is going to stretch the floor quite well for bronny and gang too so the team looks almost perfect. Too many playmakers ruin the team when you have 3 playmakers already.

We know the starting lineup

Love subs out first and Frye/Dunleavy pops in

Irving and Bron subs out and that leaves a bench of (with Love subbing back in)

PG. D-league player like Norris cole
SG: Shumpert
SF: Jefferson/Dunleavy
PF:Love/Frye/Dunleavy
C:Thompson/Love/Anderson

Regardless they always keep a good strong balanced team on the floor for the full 48

Bench are overrated. In the playoffs and in the NBA Finals. The NBA Coaches only used an 8th man or 9th man rotations.

No. I have watched all of the Cleveland games of the past 2 years. When Curry has been healthy he has absolutely destroyed us every time.
