New coach, new philosophy, and most likely, some new personnel.
Thats what the Cavaliers face as they enter their first offseason in the era of Mike Brown 2.0. Brown is a defense-first leader, a man who believes every opposing possession should be a grind.
Not everyone on the Cavs current roster fits such a profile, and thats OK. Every successful team has a wide range of individual styles.
Heres a player-by-player look at those who finished last season as Cavs, and where they may go from here:
Kyrie Irving, PG
What happened: Irving proved to be arguably the leagues best ball-handler and one of its most dangerous perimeter shooters. Oh, and he can get to the basket whenever he wants. But he is one of the Cavs worst defenders, and had issues staying healthy for (at least) the fourth straight year, dating back to high school.
Whats next: Kyrie will continue to be the team leader, one of the NBAs most dynamic point guards and a fantastic teammate. But defense starts out top. In I...
BEST OF MAXIM
Big tip of the cap to Inside Hoops.com for this video from Montclair State University in New Jersey, home of the Red Hawks. Kyrie Irving was involved in a game or two of pick-up basketball on campus yesterday it appears. The video is mostly of Kyrie draining long range jumpers over would be defenders, but at the end we see something rarely on display from the Cavaliers’ most recent...
Record: 24-58- 13th in East- 28th in NBA
Review: The Cleveland Cavaliers finished with a very poor record, but remember, Kyrie Irving missed 23 games, Anderson Varejao missed 57 games, Dion Waiters missed 21 games and numerous other players missed time. If healthy, they still probably would not have made the playoffs, but they would have been a much better team...
Kyrie Irving of the Cleveland Cavaliers is an NBA superstar in the making. He finished the 2012-13 season averaging 22.…
In his short time in the league, Kyrie Irving has proven to be quite the player for the Cleveland Cavaliers. After only one limited season at Duke, some had doubts about how he could translate into the NBA. While parts of his game certainly need fine tuning, it looks like the Cavs got a very nice point guard with their number one overall pick.
We also know that Kyrie Irving is very...
ESPN’s Chris Broussard might be completely ******* insane about some things, but when it comes to reporting important LeBron James news, he’s pretty much aces, at least because he’s the guy who had the LeBron to Miami scoop before anyone else in 2010. So witness the latest report from Broussard on the LeBron implications of the Cavs recent re-hire of head coach Mike Brown....
The NFL Draft is now officially in the rearview mirror, and the Cleveland Browns have five new players to show for it.
Cleveland Sports Insiders returns to the air tonight, and Steve and Jim will be sure to offer their thoughts on the Browns' selections, which include Barkevious Min (No. 6 overall), defensive back Leon McFadden (No. 68), safety Jamoris Slaughter (No. 175)...
For my entire archive of The Diff at WFNY, check out this tag. Last week’s edition tackled an aggregate of 60 mock drafts from around the Internet, which obviously didn’t prove that fruitful when the Browns took Barkevious Mingo (projected by only 3 mock drafts). Oh well.
Back in my second-ever version of The Diff, on Jan. 23, I wrote over 3,000 words on six specific franchise...
