Wade is still a nice player but I wouldnt put him as part of a big four. If IT is healthy than they have a really nice BIG THREE ... Not sure how Cavs got much better though. I would take healthy Kyrie over hurt IT AND OLD WADE.... The CAVS needed to get younger and more athletic. Besides Crowder I dont like any of their additions VS THE WARRIORS.

Adding Crowder to last seasons Cavs would have been best case scenario for the CAVS.... Kyrie leaving was just a huge blow ..

There will be excuses:

The annual Kevin Love excuse.

IT doesn't play defense.

Korver doesn't play defense.

Rose is washed up.

Tristan Thompson isn't good.




Anyone that thinks that there won't be excuses has gone full retard. The only difference this year is that the media won't hype up the Cavs as they steamroll the east...

They did the right thing. They got experienced veterans. They weren't going to be able to get a young ready to contribute talent.

Other than Wade, they were able to get players 27-30 that are veterans and have playoff experience that are hungry for a title. Last year they got complacent at times and I believe it was a mini championship hang over leading to the finals.

coaching is a big thing with this group. Give Popavich this depth and watch how he masterfully handles it. Lue, i worry about.

Yep.

Durant = LeBron
Klay >> Wade (that was just painful)
Curry >> IT
Green > Love

Number of their excuses = Number of players on their roster -1

The depth could help in the long term if the players stay healthy. Lebron needs to play under 35 mpg and Wade shouldnt avg more than 25 mpg. This is a new team because so many new pieces and it may take a while for them to gel. Warriors wont miss a beat though

Lebron is going to have to become more of an off the ball player for Rose to really do well.. I think Lebron will start doing that this year if not than Rose wont be much of an addition.

If anyone thinks the Cavs are better than the Warriors, they're delusional. Hell, you could take Durant off the Warriors and I'd still probably take GS.
