With the season starting tonight, the WFNY gang answered some questions about the upcoming 82 games. We also asked Jack @WayneEmbrysKids to participate with us. Because he’s one of the cool kids on the twitters.

SCOTT: I’ve gone on record with my forecast of 27-55, which should slot them around 12th in the Eastern Conference. Big picture, it means that the Cavaliers should be obtaining yet another lottery pick, one that will likely be used on a small forward that will give the Cavaliers a concrete, young starting five for the foreseeable future.
JACK (@WayneEmbrysKids): Cavs will go 36-46, just miss the playoffs, get a shot in the lottery. It’s only year two of Kyrie Irving. Not going to lose my mind when they miss the playoffs.

CLEVELAND (AP) -- Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert now wishes he wouldn't have guaranteed his team would win an NBA title before LeBron James.
When James left Cleveland for Miami as a free agent in July 2010, Gilbert famously promised in a letter to disappointed Cleveland fans that his Cavs would win a championship before James got one with the Heat.
Well, that ended in June when...
Dan Gilbert can empathize with the decision made by the Thunder to trade James Harden before he hit free agency.
Opening night was a blast, but it failed to provide us with the regular season’s first Poster of the Day. Fortunately, this doesn’t mean the evening was completely devoid of spectacular aerial exploits. As the Heat put it to the Celtics, LeBron James could be found streaking through the lane and rising high above the rim. And, in Cleveland, Tristan Thompson helped Kyrie...
CLEVELAND (AP) -- Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert wishes he could take back that guarantee about winning an NBA title before LeBron James.
