Forget Noels, If I'm the Cavs I'm drafting Ben Mclemore, because Dion Waiters to be isn't 2 guard you can build with....He's listed at 6'4, but Waiters is really 6'2, him and Kyrie are the same height....smh Mclemore to me could become a better defensive version of Jason Richardson, in his prime...Forget the Ray Allan comparisons, Mclemore is more like J-Rich to me...If not, the Cavs could trade down and gain some vaulable assets by trading down for Otto Porter
Noel, Porter or trade.
Waiters is really Kyrie's height? http://tinyurl.com/ohrmo95
I think Kyrie is closer to 6'3". Dion is at least 6'4 1/2 with shoes.
I hate dealing with idiots that follow everything they see, Kyrie is 6'2 and Waiters is the same height as him...If Waiters is 6'4 why was he shorter than D-Wade when the Cavs matched up against the Heat? smh
You do yourself a disservice and show your blatant ignorance by resorting to name calling just because I disagree with you, but I forgive you. Dwayne Wade is actually closer to 6'5". Look at his height in shoes on draft express. Even that height is probably when he was drafted. It's far more logical to think he could have grown a little since then.
Ben Mac is 6'4"
This draft is scaring me.
I like Porter and McLemore, but I cant imagine either one of them being #1 picks
Long-term role players, no studs
I think Noel is a good fit for them, I just don't think he's a great number 1 pick. Not only are you going to get possibly nothing out of him this season, but you are getting an extremely limited shot blocker.
Cavs are so close, yet so far away. Unless you watched Dion religiously, you're still probably thinking he is the 6th man for Syracuse. Dion can get to the hole at will. His shot selection was horrible the first half of the season, the second half of the season, it became much better. I wont be surprised to see him put up 18ppg next season. (14.7ppg/28.8mpg this season)
I prefer Porter to Noel, but I don't know if Id take him Number 1. Cleveland desperately needs a quality SF and with so much Cap space, as well as the number 1 pick The Cavs will be getting great offers from teams around the league needing that Center or SG. Looking forward to staying up to date with the rumors til draft time.
I have McLemore ranked ahead of Noel but I think Noel is probably the better fit. Waiters is more than capable of starting going forward and while teaming McLemore up with those two would be fun it wouldn't make as much sense from a basketball standpoint. I know Noel doesn't bring much offensively but with Kyrie running the offense and Noel anchoring the defense they should be tough for years to come.
I am worried about the Cavs will F**** All our Mocks (again)
They could select Oladipo or Shabazz... XD
Between Noel, McLemore or trading the pick. Personally, I need some time to think this one over. Also could depend on the best possible trade that is offered to us, but really we have some great picks this year.
I think Porter is the best fit, and probably has the highest floor out of he, Mclemore, and Noel. I think they'll take Porter, with Noel as their second option.
WHOEVER thinks Dion Waiters will be okay or can come off the bench is wrong. He doesn't like the idea of it and it will create an issue on the team. Someone posted it already but Coach Brown already said Dion could play as a starter on his team so lets put that to rest. Also just an FYI Dion just posted this on twitter in reaction to a fan asking him if he would like to come off the bench.
disrespectful RT @DRR72: @dionwaiters3 sports talk hosts like @DustinFox37 would like to see you coming off the bench next season, thoughts?
I love all the players we currently have, and I definitely like McLemore but if he can't play the SF position we may end up trading that pick. I honestly don't see the Cavaliers using the #1 pick on Nerlens Noel when he is going to end up sitting for half of the season. Long story short, everything is up in the air but I definitely am intrigued by a lot of different options. (Which is why I wanted the number 1 pick anyway)
I really want them to pick Mclemore, and move Dion Waiters to a 6th man role
I do not know if Waiters would buy in to that tho
