Now it's just a bunch of team guys, a gunner who can get hot, and the best player in the world

I got into an argument IRL about Love being a positive player.

I can't realize this was wrong.

i'm not saying he isn't positive, but I think Thompson might be a better fit

With Love, to keep him happy, they had to dump the ball down to him early a couple of times a game to appease him

He is Zoubek and Jeff Hornacek in one player.

and IIRC he didn't have a great three point shooting year this season

I haven't looked at the numbers recently, but wasn't the Cavs' offense better with Love? However, if their defense has improved that much, maybe the sum difference is negative?

DurhamSon - May 26, 11:28 pm
yes, Cavs offense was league tops with him
User avatar
SeanMayTriedToEatMe - May 26, 11:28 pm
I think a lot of it is playing a beaten up East
User avatar
DurhamSon - May 26, 11:28 pm
the Okafor comparison in this case is purely defensive
User avatar
DurhamSon - May 26, 11:28 pm
and possibly sucking usage from shooters

The Hawks team on the floor tonight was like a 14th place West team.

Just like 2015 Duke, I imagine Cavs' playoff numbers have improved dramatically on defense while seeing a slight dropoff on defense
User avatar

Literally the Denver Nuggets.
User avatar
rome8180 - May 26, 11:29 pm
oops.
User avatar
SeanMayTriedToEatMe - May 26, 11:29 pm
The Nuggets would have been favored.
User avatar
rome8180 - May 26, 11:29 pm
second part was supposed to say offense
User avatar

The Cavs can obviously still score. Just not at the same level as before. However, their defense has improved so much that they are the better team overall
