Yea...that's a terrible office.
A. The first point... This front office was brought in after James was already gone, so that makes the point completely moot. That is unless you are blaming Chris Grant for things Danny Ferry did.
B. Gilbert is easily one of the best owners in the league. There are not too many guys willing to open up their wallet in the way he has over the years. The only reason Kyrie is here in the first place is because he was unafraid to spend $15 million on the chance to hit the lottery.
C. And, your last point bleeds into the B section. Kyrie Irving wouldn't be in Cleveland in the first place if it weren't for one of the single best front office moves in recent memory. Remember, the Cavs didn't take him with their own pick. They put together a very savvy trade and essentially got Kyrie Irving for Mo Williams and the right to pay off Baron Davis' contract. Where does that rank on your "terrible front office" list?
Furthermore, they've loaded up the team with other young talent. The Cavs have the youngest composite roster in the entire league and four of the team's best six players are either first or second year players (Irving, Thompson, Waiters, Zeller).
The fact that you blame this front office for things that happened four years ago shows how little you know.
