How do the Cavs look so far for 2019-20?

Recommended Posts

Honestly haven't had a chance to pay attention or even look up basic reporting, such as it's been. Gonna do that in a bit, but, impressions so far?

(yeah they aren't going to compare favorably to the Lebron and company playoff run teams, but anything interesting or hopeful?)

Hmmm...

  • Preseason: 1-3
  • Regular Season: 1-1
  • Fivethirtyeight Projection for 2019-20 Season: 25-57 and a 4% chance at the playoffs*

 

*adjusted for the first two regular season games already played

People forget:  Tristan Thompson and Kevin Love were starters on a team that went to 4 consecutive NBA Championship series.  They know how to play winning basketball, even if they were not the main cogs (LBJ/Kyrie).

Sexton, Garland, Porter look like they could be a hell of a young backcourt.   And Clarkson and Nance are good young pieces/support players.  Osman can contribute....as can Delly. 

They also have some veteran bench contributors:  Brandon Knight, John Henson

And  still one third of their roster are rookies. 

I think they could certainly challenge for a playoff spot in the East.

I haven't watched any of the Cavs this year. I did look up the stats from the game the other day. We have a guy named D Wade. But not the D Wade of the Miami Heat.
