Amidst health concerns coupled with uncertainty surrounding the cause, Cleveland Cavaliers head coach Ty Lue is taking a leave of absence from the team.
With the Cavs dealing with a number of injuries, it makes us wish that it was possible to wrap each Cavs player in bubble wrap to assure they’re at full strength in mid-April.
With just one practice under their belt together, the new-look Cavs not only dominated the Celtics in Boston, but they did so while looking energetic and rejuvenated all while having fun and seemingly being unstoppable offensively.
WIth so much pressure to improve the team, first-year general manager Koby Altman came through and had an incredible deadline day. Just how good does it seem to be? He got the nod of approval from former general manager David Griffin Tha’ts a good thing, right?
If there is any player this city can rally around, it’s the one everyone counted out, who dominated a game toothless, only to end here on a whim to see how it all plays out.
The Cleveland Cavaliers are only 35 games into the season so they have plenty of time to figure out their best lineups and rotations, but right now, playing Channing Frye over Tristan Thompson would be the right move. Frye makes the team (and second unit) better both offensively and (very surprisingly) defensively.
Who knew that a trio of 30-plus reserves would be one of the biggest story lines of the first quarter of the Cavaliers’ NBA season?
It’s only been five games this season, but J.R. Smith is off to the worst start of his career by a wide margin. Here’s to hoping he works things out, finds his groove, and gives the Cavs a jolt of offense to ease some of the burden off of LeBron James.
The Cavs suddenly have a lot of high-quality players to deploy over a finite amount of minutes per game. How Ty Lue responds will be worth watching.
Jae Crowder can guard a number of positions on defense and find ways to contribute without needing the ball in his hands offensively. Tyronn Lue is already working on ways for the Cavs to utilize his versatility on both sides of the floor this season. Whether it means using a small or big lineup, Crowder will allow Lue to take some of the pressure off LeBron James as well.
Cleveland Cavalier Jose Calderon may be considered the backup point guard now, but Tyronn Lue hasn’t counted out Kay Felder quite yet.
Could Mr. Big Shot be the next Cavaliers’ front office head?
Did Tyronn Lue really state that the Boston Celtics are harder to prepare for than the Golden State Warriors?
