“What makes this almost ridiculous to me is that Byron doesn’t even know who will be on his team next year. Say lightning strikes twice and the Cavaliers end up with Anthony Davis or Micheal Kidd-Gilchrist for crying out loud, they could be a 6-seed possibly. Even if they ended up with Bradley Beal or Harrison Barnes, I see no reason why they can’t at least compete for playoffs. Why could they not at least have the same goal that they did for most of this past season with Anthony Parker as the starting two-guard and Ryan Hollins getting rotational minutes? I’m not asking anybody to go Joe Namath on a playoff run next season, just don’t tell me it’s impossible quite yet. There’s no reason for that.” [Bowers/Stepien Rules]

When it comes to rebuilding, the Cavaliers certainly have a lot of competition. After all, they arent the only NBA team that possesses gifted young talent and a lottery pick in the June draft.
Nick Gilbert won two more contests of chance last week, as he properly identified which side would be facing up when a couple critical coins first left David Stern's hand. As a result of the more valuable toss, the Cavaliers now sit with the third best chance of drafting Anthony Davis. Or, the second best chance to lose out on AD and get my guy Michael Kidd-Gilchrist.

The Cleveland Cavaliers were technically in the playoff race with just over one month to go this season by complete accident. Despite the fact that I'd have celebrated an over-achieving run towards first round elimination, even at the expense of a lottery pick, I never really thought they'd actually get there.
