OK, so color me ignorant on this. But what does it indicate that Kyrie, Tristan Thompson, Waiters, and Zeller were selected for this? Is it more of an indication that they got more playing time and therefore had better numbers? Or is Chris Grant turning into a slightly benevolent evil genius with some much bitched about picks?

Z, Brevin Knight, Cedric Henderson and an injured Derek Anderson all represented the Cavs in this game once upon a time.

Kyrie = genius

TT, Waiters, Zeller = definitely have benefited from early p.t., too early to tell.

Go Lakers!

Waiters has already exceeded my expectations. I knew he can't shoot and he can't, but he does take it to the hole pretty nice for a rook. There's hope there.

This team needs and around-the-rim center and when Bron comes back in 2 years the championship will finally come.
