    Can we get a Washington game day thread going so we can discuss how they are getting blown out by the Celtics?

    I was surprised by the number of flawed players and washed up vets he's brought in. His situation now isn't much different than what he had in Miami, overall.

    Still crazy you put LeBron on any team in the East and it's an automatic finals team.
    I know, it's scary. Lebron really is THAT good. Funny thing is he did the same thing last time around in Cleveland and forced Danny Ferry into panic roster moves to try to keep him. When LBJ went to Miami, he had no choice but to let Riley do the GM'ing and it worked out great.

    Cavs roster, even healthy is quite flawed as you said. Lebron might be the only legit 2-way player on that team. And some guys aren't even NBA players anymore. I mean, Richard Jefferson as your SF? smh. I thought RJ was done 5 years ago. And you could have had Wiggins? lmao.

    So Lowry is Steve Nash? lol. Jazz had Stockton and Malone, Suns had Nash and Stoudemire and Raptors have Lowry and Biyombo .
    Hall of fame, baby.

    Lol people on reddit saying that Biz looked like Amare Stoudemire on those pick and rolls late in the 4th. UNLEASH THE BEAST

    This is what happens when you let Lebron James be your team's defacto GM.

    You trade a dynamic 2-way stud wing player on a rookie contract (Wiggins) for an always injured 1-way PF (Love) on a max contract and then sign another one-dimensional PF (Thompson) as a backup at close to the max. And Love doesn't even fit on the Cavs once Kyrie gets back. Kyrie-Wiggins-LBJ-TT is so much better all-around than Kyrie-JR-LBJ-Love. And Wiggins can guard 3 positions, whereas Love can't even guard his shadow.

    Lebron-Wiggins would have been the closest thing to Jordan-Pippen, but LBJ totally effed that up, thankfully for the eastern conference.

    Missed part of the 1st half last night so i'm currently re-watching the game.

    Love is an awful defender. He can't guard Scola lol. Scola is eating him alive.

    This is the game I'll be rewatching during the offseason for sure.

    Anyway... Cavs are soft. They really are. How many and-1s did we get last night???

    But other than Ross this was a very good win and was fun to watch. Cleveland is very injured but you have to take the wins when you can get them.

    Little things I saw and liked:

    1. Biyombo's screens. The dude sets solid picks and really clears space for his perimeter people. Has he been called for an illegal screen all year? Amir set solid screens all the time and it's a small thing that can make a big difference.

    2. Pick and roll defense. The defense hasn't changed all that much but man, some subtle changes to the pick and roll defense have been very effective.

    3. ATO plays. Some really good stuff out of timeouts. Casey has some good ATO sets but rarely uses them and I thought they did a good job last night getting some clean shots.

    Little things I saw and didn't like:

    1. Ross gets caught on a lot of screens. A lot. Like all of them. Even bad ones.

    2. Forgetting about Scola. The offense was humming so it's not a big deal but Scola can be a more consistent part of the offense, especially when he's en fuego.

    3. Cleveland's big men. Is Mozgov really that much of a difference maker? I haven't seen much of the Lebrons this year but they look shaky up front. Love looks so good offensively out there but he also give so much back on the other end. I wonder if Lebron wishes they had Wiggins?
    I'm so glad you noticed that too. Ross literally gets hung up on EVERY SINGLE SCREEN. He also doesn't know how to read screens properly and because of that he constantly gets beat. I truly don't think this guy will ever get it. He has been in the league 3 years now or whatever and he still doesn't know how to read screens and fight through screens. SMH.
