The new look Cavs

They are looking great right now whoopi g the Celtics with ease... Everyone is contributing. The ball is moving.. people are actually defending and most importantly smiling.. Lebron seems to have a great time right now.. very dangerous for the East.. Sorry raps and celtics fans but this team looks kinda dangerous. The Cavs are fun again ! Wondering who they are going to draft this summer.

LeBron has a team where he

LeBron has a team where he can pass His Knowledge and be more of a Teacher. He's having fun on the court. Expectations are lowered . And they are having fun. No Egos, Bad attitudes and Expectations 2 win a championship . they look great and happy to see them having fun on the court .

I loved each and every move

I loved each and every move they made. This team got younger, hungrier, more athletic, and just all around better and looks like the #1 team in the East again. Obviously it’s just one game but I don’t see any team beating them in the East

like I said

I woudl've taken any of those players on the Sixers. Even Jae Crowder or IT.

Cleveland looks good Rodney Hood I always liked and is a knockdown shooter. Clarkson is a nice scorer off the bench. George Hill looks very very solid, so many teams could use George Hill.

Having said that it was all clicking but it was just one game.

Dallas adding Doug McBuckets also played really well today against Houston...i'm not ready to say they're a bonafide playoff team off of one game.

Nice effort...I still think Toronto if they play up to their capabilities are the team to beat in the East.

The East is anyone's conference right now. There's no way I can say the Cavs are the favorites.

I think Milwaukee with Giannis could beat Cleveland today in a 7 game series. A good defending Philly could also give anyone in the East a run...i've seen it...they've been in almost every game against good teams...except Toronto.

Cavs are the team to beat in

Cavs are the team to beat in the East. Irving, Horford, Derozan, Lowry, Wall, Beal all know this. The East belongs to Lebron James until he's knocked off.

They'll be a much better

They'll be a much better regular season team with this roster because these are the type of players LeBron thrives with, however we've seen LeBron on teams like these before and how it ends.

These guys will be praised the rest of the season and the hype train will build, but the ending result will be the same narrative . . . "LeBron doesn't have enough help" and "his teammates suck" because these guys just don't have the star power to help LeBron beat GREAT teams in a seven game series. LeBron will get his numbers, but these guys will fall short.

As great as LeBron is, I don't think his style of play gets the max out of star caliber teammates on the offensive side of the floor. I'd really like to see him on the Spurs next season.

I don't remember anyone

I don't remember anyone saying that he doesn't have help in any of the last like 5 Finals. It's all been that people just understand how unbelievably good the Warriors are. I don't think saying his teammates aren't good enough is the same thing as saying he doesn't have any help, because it was true last year and might even be true again this year

Kinda off topic but doesnt

Kinda off topic but doesnt really deserve its own thread... Has Lebron ever been injured? This guy is always healthy wtf. Why cant this guy just miss ONE playoffs series so Toronto can advance to the Finals. JUST ONE!

Looked like a franchise dead

Looked like a franchise dead in the water less than a week ago. Then the Deadline. LeBron's maestro performance and game winner. The Boston Massacre. Cavs should be chanting Kobi! Kobi! Kobi!

Reminds me, for some reason, of the Bulls' 1996-1998 teams PLUS they have a mid-first (or better) first round pick coming in.

I wouldn't rule out a 3peat.

^^^ Sorry! Yeah it's Koby

^^^

Sorry! Yeah it's Koby with a Y.

Koby Altman pulled off a great trade deadline. Bet he gets a great player with the Nets pick, too.

I think Ainge and the Celtics (and the Warriors) should have made some moves.

I would pick Cavs over the Rockets in 7 if the playoffs started today. Although the ECF and WCF might each go 7. Boston is good. OKC is good. Plus a bunch of sleepers on both sides. Anybody who can get to out of the first round on either side can get to the Finals. Might be more depth at the top than we thought.
