When you have an abundance of cap space and high draft picks, you can make things happen. I would be surprised if the Cavs brought in two more young guys with top 15 picks again this offseason (assuming the Lakers sneak into the playoffs and the Cavs get their pick).
It isn't tanking... They are just very young and the roster is very thin. But, that is by design. The FO has been hoarding picks and money for years... Rightfully so, imo. You have to go through some pain now to be better off down the road.
Yea but eventually you have to start winning some games, especially like tonight when you have a 20+ lead in the 4th. It's hurts morale for the team when you lose like that. You end up getting labeled perennial losers when you can never close out games.
The team has talent. They should be able to start gelling and building momentum for the coming years. Plus the east is weak. There is no reason they should not be in the playoffs within 2 years. Next year should be high 30 wins at a minimum.
