I'm perfectly fine if his "last hurrah" is a contract he signs before retiring a Cavalier and getting #23 raised.

It's a lot more fun watching this team grow organically without everything being wrapped around one player.

This team is so much more fun to follow than LeBron's final season (second tenure) here... that team was so frustrating. Ty Lue's lineups were horrible.

From Pelton(summarized)@ Espn
What Evan Mobley's injury means for the Cleveland Cavaliers' surprising start

-Cavs are now deeper above .500 in a season since lebron left
-Mobley back around Jan 1, maybe a week earlier.
-Sexton's treatment could go two ways. One way is they can just trim the part that's injured and can come back in several weeks. Or a complete rebuild of the meniscus could sideline him all of the rest of the season.
-Rubio is critical to this team having any kind of success.
-Cedi is having a nice bounce back season
-another backcourt injury is going to be very bad for this team
-Mobley has skills that are difficult to replace
-one of the most versatile defenders in the league, holding opponents to the 10th worst fg % in the league within 5 feet, Love and Markkanen are not good defenders that close.
-Team will especially struggle when Allen is on the bench. Allen or Mobley have been on the court for 668 of the team's 720 minutes
-upcoming schedule is absolutely brutal. Hopefully the team can stay around .500 while waiting for Mobley to come back.

If the timeline is 2-4 weeks, shouldn't Mobley be back on the court closer to Dec 1 than Jan 1? Pelton wasn't reporting any news in that article, just speculating on the team.

We need Allen and Lauri back pronto. Watching a team missing 4/5 of its starting lineup compete hard in losses has been fun and all, but I'd like to get back to winning and I'm growing increasingly concerned about Rubio's minutes at his age.
It is highly unlikely that the Cavs will agree with your Kevin Love evaluation for the purpose of a trade.

No games till Monday, so hopefully they'll be back into the swing of things by then.

We missed Cedi too ... his play has been a big part of our success.

Rubio isn't actually all that old (just turned 31), but JBB does need to to manage minutes better across the board. He didn't even bother to sit Okoro when Steph went out.

Not sure where to post this so putting it here. I came into the Cavs forum to see what's the latest on your team/players... and there are just too many game threads dominating the 1st page of this section. It's not very viewer friendly. I think your section would be a lot nicer if there was just 1 stickied match-day thread, with the title being updated for each upcoming game.

2021-22 Matchday Thread: Game 20, Cleveland @ Orlando, 11/28/2021, 8:30 PM EST.

You could even have 2 stickied threads, 1 Match-day Thread and 1 Post-Game Thread, to separate discussion of completed games from the next game. The Post-game thread would have the completed game and result in its title.

2021-22 Post-Game Thread: Game 19, Cleveland vs Phoenix, 11/25/2021, (L 115-120).

In this way, you could have more threads showing on the first page that are discussing players, the FO, trades, the off-season, and other events, questions, polls, or random stuff that Cavs fans wanna talk about.

I mean with the lack of discussion in other threads it's not like it keeps information from being disseminated.

Well, the regular season is ongoing and unless your team is awful, and especially when the team is outperforming expectations, fans tend to talk about the games being played versus the players they want traded or the people they want fired.

The future is, at least presently, looking bright for the Cavs and it's difficult to see a trade that helps now, without undermining the foundation.

I'm not sure we have any control of our game threads, "dulcer" handles that ... but it works for us. You only have to look at 2 pages of content and you can see everything we've discussed going back to June ... :lol:

Someone looking to get an idea of what's going on in general can look in the stickied regular season thread.
