Fourth Quarters at this point are more often then not a battle of who can find their legs for more than a minute or two.

I can't root against them. But I can't justify wanting them to win either.

WE CAN DO IT

Prosecutor wrote:I'm under no illusion that the Cavs can trade Sessions, Jamison, or Varajao for a pick in the 20s and end up with a Rajon Rondo. Yes, we landed Carlos Boozer and Daniel Gibson in the second round, but those are anomalies. We got J.J. Hickson at #19 and Eyenga at #30, so those are the kind of players I expect we would end up with if we traded Varajao to a Finals team for two 1st round picks. Anybody want to trade Andy for JJ and Eyenga? I agree Sessions has to be traded for whatever he'll bring, or we end up with nothing.I think letting Jamison's contract expire and freeing up $15 million in cap space might be preferrable to trading him for the 30th pick. The savings could be used to help sign a better player than we could draft at #30. Did somebody mention Gordon?We wouldn't be taking on anywhere near Jamo's salary long term for the #30, so the point is moot.As for the rhetorical question, I'm trying to say that I would rather have a 30-win team populated by some fairly talented players like AV, Irving, Sessions, Boobie, TT, and Jamison, and then add the #14 pick, than have a group of stiffs who couldn't win 12 games and add a Kyrie Irving. I understand not everyone agrees. No problem.I'd rather stink for another two years and end up with Durant, Westbrook, and Harden later on.

Prosecutor wrote:Tonight could get ugly with AV and KI out and Tawn having played 43 minutes last night. The Sixers are one of the better defensive teams. I don't know how the Cavs get 80 points.

Now if Browns management could take over the Irving concussion recovery the Cavs could be really short handed for a while. Well at least until DHoward comes via trade.
