Are the 2012-2013 Cavs Too Good?


Yes, you read that right. I'm legitimately concerned that the Cavs might be good enough to make a run at the 8th seed in the eastern conference. They're almost certain to be better than last year's team, and as much as i would love to see the Cavs play in the post-season, i have no desire to see them in NBA purgatory - not good enough to content, but not bad enough to have a lottery pick.

Our best if not only means of adding the pieces we need is through trades or the draft. Perhaps one day a big free agent will sign here, but until that day, we should continue to operate under the assumption that free agency will not save our bacon. Therefore, whether we use our draft picks or trade them, we need them to have as much value as possible. And flirting with the 8th seed doesn't help that cause.

For me, the best case scenario for this season would be for our rookies to show promise, our 2nd year players to show growth, trading Anderson Varejao for some scoring/defense help on the wing and for the team to end up with one of the worst records in the NBA. The 2013-2014 season is where we start to really put the pieces together and see what we've got.

As ever, this is just my opinion and i welcome dissenting viewpoints.

Go Cavs
