I actually like it for the Cavs a ton.
I mean DAJ isn’t unplayable bad outside of certain matchups, but they’re def gonna go small in the playoffs a lot
I agree defensively there’s gonna be a lot of problems, But offensively it really might be better than the warrior squads even
True, but IDK how much Durant would be able to guard bigs, and they're pretty thin at this point. I was and still am a bit skeptical of the injury return guys, but those Warriors teams could defend too and right now I'm not sure they have a single player above average for their position defensively.
I def agree defense is gonna be interesting for them, but as bad as they’ll be on defense they’ll be so unstoppable on offense I can’t see them losing to anyone other than the lakers/clippers/bucks
It’s gonna come down to coaching, we don’t really know anything about how Nash is as a coach and we won’t till the playoffs hit. If it’s similar to D antoni in the rockets I don’t think that’ll be enough since we saw him get horribly outcoached
At the end of the day I think the top four most talented teams are the lakers/bucks/nets/clippers, I could be swayed either way in the bucks or the nets for second. Otoh, budenholzer is the worst playoff coach in that grip by a long shot, Vogel prolly the best, I’d assume lue second
I def still think the lakers have the edge, the bucks a need budenholzer getting his **** together, the clippers are just too much of a meme, and the nets are still unknowns now. I don’t think the lakers are gonna dominate nearly as much as last year though, esp since the nets and the clippers make it hard to play harrell and especially marc
