Default 35 yo Wade and 28 yo Rose - the Cavs have zero excuses

The 2004 Lakers added a 36 yo Gary Payton and a 41 yo Karl Malone, and were the overwhelming favorites to win it all.

The Eastern conference champions and by some metrics one of the greatest offensive teams in history adding a relatively spry Wade and Rose? Anything below 70 wins and a title would be underachieving.

Wade and rose are shells of what they were. If the lakers were favorites it's because of shaq and kobe. The cavs have their shaq in lebron but wheres the sidekick aka the kobe? IT is out for half the season and might not even return on the same level. Not to mention relative competition is different (73 win team adding the second best player in the league).

anytime the best player in the league (Lebron 1a/b) gets any decent help its normal for fans to have high expectations.

but lets us be serious for a moment, anyone really think the Warriors can lose 4 out of 7 barring injuries to key players?

Cavs would be the overwhelming favorites if it wasn't for the Warriors. The Warriors probably still have the better TEAM. Yes the Cavs have a lot of big names on their team now but we don't know yet how that will work out on the floor and whether Rose, Wade and IT can stay healthy.

Also the Warriors have the much better coach, which makes a huge difference too. Therefore imo the Warriors are still the favorites.

I agree. Rose and Wade are still decent and can go off on scoring spurts. Jeff Green too.

Doesn’t matter. Warriors are favorites, defending champs. Improved their bench too.

it's possible but not very likely.

It's more likely that the warriors finally get hit by the injury bug this year.
