How long before Grant wakes up and blows this botched rebuild sky high?

Never?

He'll either be fired, and thus blame everyone else for his failures, or else LeBron will come back (not likely, but possible) and he'll be saved and never have the opportunity for real self reflection.

#1 overall pick the year before and the year after Anthony Davis.

Ok JB Shugarts, I'm going to have to flag you for illegal motion, false start or whatever it is they call jumping before the snap these days.

In my opinion, this team is going to continue to look shitty for another month or two and then they will have learned the system better and settle into their roles. I still think this will be a fringe playoff team this year before it is all said and done.

Which yields them absolutely nothing in the big picture rebuild. Not a damn thing.

Kyrie's better than Anthony Davis. Worse is the #1 pick in between the drafts of Anthony Davis and Parker/Wiggins/Randle. Let's shoot for the top 3 though knowing Grant, if it came to Randle he wouldn't take him because he already has Thompson and Bennett.


My worst fears for this team have come to pass. Gifted four top 5 picks and you turn it into 1 star, 1 above average player, and two absolute scrubs.
Fuck the Browns...

Serious question- how does that team still get its attendance #s? Do they hand out free tickets?

Is Cleveland actually that much of a basketball town?

If this was the only year or if they never progress beyond a middling playoff team.
