Yes, but nothing I can say at this time. :wink:
Kyrie Irving was posing back stage in his uniform holding the crystal MVP trophy. "Make sure you get Cleveland," he said, referring to the "CAVALIERS" on his home white jersey.

Boooo!!!!! HISSSSSSSSSSSSSSS! :lol: The great part about us here at the Cavs board is... we're a tight knit group. I mean, we all do our best to defend fart when we can out on the GB, amongst others. What I'm saying is... you can trust us with a juicy secret and/or the latest gossip. That way, we're all up to par on the current happenings of our favorite team, and we won't look like fools in front of those harsh Cleveland Critics on the GB when it comes time to discuss this topic. Whatdya say, old sport?
The board if you tell us: :rockon: :party:

The board if you hoard secrets: :starwars :argue: :box:

Speaking of Cleveland critics, I like how mods are allowed to troll the Cavs on the GB.

What about something like Luke Walton and Casspi for Shawn Marion, a filler and a #1 pick? Marion is a rather large expiring for next year, and it's not like we are going to sign anyone anyways. Doesn't effect 2014 space, but it gives up a proven perimeter defender who is still an above average player. Dallas wants to clear cap space in a bad way for the summer.

We need to add a coach who knows how to teach a defensive system that works...

Hey, I'm not the biggest fan of Scott's defense. Any defense built around help D doesn't work when you don't have good interior D and length on the perimeter. But I think if we add those two things we could see this team playing great defense. While it's a flawed system, it can work.

Which is why the 2nd team defense is so much better. Livingston and Ellington are longer on the perimeter and, frankly they are more committed to playing D as well. What we are really lacking is a big who can protect the rim, TT blocks a shot or two but isnt really a guy who protects the rim all that well. A healthy Oden wold be great, but even if we sign him I dont think he is going to hold up anyway.
I wonder if Bynum shows anything before the end of the season if the Cavs would use their capspace this year offseason on him. I personally am not a fan, but IF he is going to be healthy by the start of next season he certainly would fit the needs of this team.
