The young Cleveland Cavaliers look like they’re starting to figure out how to play. That’s evident by them winning 7 of their last 11, and emerging from the purgatory, that is the worst teams in the NBA. please note: they are still one of the worst teams, but there is a reason for a hyperbolic celebration anytime you are no longer associated with the Charlotte Bobcats. Offensively they are sharing the ball, which is an improvement that can’t be understated. They no longer have the feel of a constipated man on a government cheese and potato diet. A lot of credit for the Cavaliers’ recent winning has to go to Byron Scott and the front office. Please note: In any conversation involving the success of the 2012 Cavaliers. It’s understood that Kyrie Irving gets 85% of the credit. It has been nice to get a look at the way Byron Scott would like the team to play. They now have a faster pace offense, that complements their defense. It’s also clear that the front office has successfully managed their draft, and filled needs via trades. Most notably the trade in which they got Marreese Speights and Wayne Ellington, for some dude named Jon Leuer. However I think it’s time to slow down on all the winning. At the risk of being ostracized by unintellectual Cavalier fans (of whom I will never have the displeasure of speaking with). I want to argue that for the best interest in long-term success. The Cavaliers should lose games. Because Cleveland Cavaliers don’t get big-time free agents, they have to build through the draft. And if they can continue to gets picks and draft well. They will have good, young, cheap assets. That can be used to build the nucleus of their team, or be flipped in a trade. Whatever they decide to do with their picks is fine with me. I’m at the point where I trust them to build the Cavaliers. However it would be nice if the Cavaliers lost more games, and increased their Ping-Pong balls.   Jon Leuer couldn’t get on the court for the Cleveland Cavaliers, a team that at the time was in NBA purgatory with the Charlotte Bobcats.   Kortney Shane Williams Editor-in-Chief of Comedic Prose Follow Kortney Williams on Twitter @kortneyshane
