I wouldn't say so. Why is this a question? Pelinka's doing good.

One win off. Not bad


the Dodgers were 71-31 when he made his bold claim.....would not call him Nostradamus even if they had won....it would be similar to predicting Notre Dame will beat Wake Forest this week.


Magic Johnson's the kind of person that would tweet "Alright, if we can score more points than the other team, we have a chance to win!" and call it a prediction.


Funny, that's similar to a quote you'd make. Just replace "Magic" with "MJST" & "we" with "Randle"! 😂

Cleveland keeps playing this way, I think it becomes more likely Bron comes our way....I still think on our team he'd spend the bulk of his minutes at PF....which I don't think is a problem, in todays NBA Bron can pretty legitimately play almost every position.

Bummer there isn't a marquee 2 out next year would fit in nice with what we have....if Bron comes wouldn't mind seeing that Bron/Boogie combo

There is a difference between Lebron leaving Cleaveland and Lebron coming to the Lakers.

Cavs are old and stale. I thought they would be able to get back to the finals this season but I don’t think they have it in them tbh. It’s not that the talent isn’t there, they just can’t sustain and keep up in an increasingly faster pace league. DWade, Rose, Korver, JR Smith, etc. they can’t do it for anything over 10-15 min.

Lebron is out, you can see it on his face. We will see where he ends up.

25.6 ppg, leads the league in assists, 59 & 37.5 shooting %, if that is out I hope he does end up in LA. Maybe a move could rejuvenate his career!

No doubt. Love and LBJ are the only ones really doing their part. Rest of that team is trash.

This sums it up

The defensive improvement is real (as is the poor shooting). Credit to the FO for building a competitive defensive roster in one off-season.

Are you talking about Lonzo, Hart, Bryant?

Way too early to be closing the book on the others and Hart has been nice already.

I have my concerns on Lonzo, but, he just turned 20. When he's 22 and still putting up zeroes I might agree with you.

At the time he was publicly high on Okafor. I have little doubt that's who he would have chosen.

At least DLo was tradeable.

This is sadly not even laughable. I guess we may the ones being laughed at if the 2 max plan fails and Lonzo struggles.

Wouldn't surprise me at all if LeBron is looking for some young studs to play with. He left Miami to go back to Cleveland and play with Kyrie. Before that he left the Cavs to go play with Bosh/Wade.

Hate to say it but I think he would very likely be heading to NY if they had drafted DS Jr to go along with Porzingis. Certainly seems like he's flirting with the Knicks now. Can't really blame him as Porzingis is a stud. I'm fine with Ball and BI but they are nowhere near the point of contending for a championship. Magic would have to bring in at least one more youngish star for LeBron to even consider the Lakers but I guess we already knew that.

IMO, it's always been 2 stars or no stars.
