It does feel a bit like the Barkley / Pippen Rockets or the Lakers with Payton / Malone.

The difference is that Lebron can carry a team on his own.

Lebron should get tested for PED

the NBA is the one league that seems like they close their eyes on this issue

I guess Cleveland forgot that their backcourt has to defend Curry and Thompson.  Or Durant on switches.  Or that they gave up 121.6 points per game to GS in the Finals last season.  Or that they'll no matter how many washed up stars they add they'll never be able to outscore GS to win 4 games out of 7.

It's too bad because minus D-Wade, I'd prefer the Cavs to beat GS next year.  But now I'm not so sure about that.  It's irrelevant I guess because it's not going to happen anyway.

The Celtics will beat Cleveland this year in the playoffs and play Golden State or whoever comes out of the West. I am all in on this Celtics squad.

So none of what should be their regular lineups should be any good at defense. 

They could run out Shump, Crowder, Thompson, and Lebron, but I'm not even sure I could think of one other good defender in the bunch.

Seems like LeBron's trying to field an all-geriatric team—Wade, Korver, Jefferson, Frye, Calderon. Aye carumba.

Looking at this Cleveland team though.. man if Lebron ever misses time due to injury/rest, lets be real, they will get KILLED.

Yeah maybe you can say the same about previous year's teams, but literally other teams with their youth can probably run all over the Cavs old bench LOL.

The Cavs bench literally might not be able to run. :P

Not surprised Wade chose his good friend LeBron.

I'm not sure I love the fit, but I guess that depends on his role.  He'd be a lot better as a 6th man than as a starter.

That Brooklyn is about to become very significant.

They can flip it for DeMarcus Cousins.

And when you have a starting 5 of...IT3/Wade/LeBron/Love/Cousins...oh man. Dangerous, dangerous.

The Cavs' starting lineup for the first half of the season currently projects to be as follows:

  • PG - Derrick Rose
  • SG - Dwyane Wade
  • SF - Lebron James
  • PF - Kevin Love
  • C - Tristan Thompson

Based on the above, I have one question I would like feedback one. 

What will be worse - Cleveland's outside shooting, or their defence?

I think it'll be defense-you still have Love that now rains 3s automatically and a LeBron that can make 3s (I know he's not the best but he's still pretty good), and DRose and Wade have the occasional clutch 3 to show for it.
