Teams like the Pistons, Spurs, and (triangle) Lakers win titles. Not loosey goosey run and gun chuckers.

This team is right on track. We shouldn't expect the world overnight.
Did you really expect this team to just magically become a team that will take down the Detroit's and San Antonio's of the world?
This team is disgusting. They are damn near impossible to watch. They need to bench Snow, DJ, and Marshall. I don't care if they ever see another minute of play time. I can and I will blame the coaching staff. This team is slow and does not move without the ball, that is a direct reflection of not only the team but also the coaching staff. It is an epidemic on the court. Mike Brown is out coached during every time out. Mike Brown "the Defensive Guru" has actually seen this Cavs defense get worse. Their is no semblance of a real offense.

I think I predicted 46-36, and that's still where I have them finishing.

I'm not sure what to make of the comments you are making. First, you say that this team is shaping up to be a ONE AND DONE PLAYOFF team, and then you criticize me for saying that people seem to expect that this team should be in the finals.
This team has barely been able to play together as a fully cohesive unit, and you're bitching that we don't run a discernable offense?
This is not a team that STANDS AROUND ON THE PERIMETER AND CHUCKS THREES. If they are out-talenting people without any semblance of an offensive set (your words again), then how are we to complain?
Plus, if you're going to continue to complain about Snow, Jones, and Marshall then you clearly know little about basketball. Those three players have gone a lot farther in helping this team to win, especially lately.
If you want Mike Wilks back, and more Sasha Pavlovic and Alan Henderson on the floor, then fine by me. However, the end result is going to be much worse that you seem to expect it to be

Unfortunately, until there is a system in place that is all they will do, go to the playoffs. I am not personally content with that forever.

The Cavaliers NEED to shoot threes because that is the only way the team can get people away from clogging the lane and forcing the team to shoot jumpers
No, Jones and Marshall haven't been nearly as successful as anyone would have hoped,
but LeBron sure seems to be having an easier time getting to the basket when he so chooses.
Now, with slashers like Hughes and Murray on the floor, you're going to see just as many threes now
There's a reason you see Jones and Marshall spotting up in the corners a lot, it's part of the OFFENSE.
You think those guys just go out there and hang in the corners because they want to? It is all part of the plan.
This team added Ron Murray at the deadline
Plus, Anderson Varejao was out for an extended period of time at the outset of the year,
or is it just that you hate Jones and Marshall as much as some of the other whiners in the Cavaliers fold that only open their yaps when something bad happens?

Remember, you were the one that said you'd be happy if they never saw the floor again. It must be man-love for Sasha Pavlovic or Luke Jackson, I've seen it many a time.
