The Cavs should say No to Nerlens Noel

The Cavs need to say NO to drafting Nerlens Noel with the number 1 pick. They should do everything they can to trade the pick. The guy is a constant injury waiting to happen. I like Andy but I thought he played too wild and that's why I wanted to trade Andy this year before another injury hit. Noel makes Wild Thing look conservative!!

This would be my first problem with Noel. He has zero control and when you watch him play you can just see an injury coming. He flops on the ground and flies all over the place because he plays so wild. The guy is as thin as a Lay's potato chip at 206 lbs. and with that ACL injury he will not just easily put on weight. The guy is naturally skinny and the way he plays makes him an accident waiting to happen. Noel will be playing against grown men who are much bigger. Look at his highlight video. The guy will be hurt a lot especially early on as he tries to recover from his injury and get into basketball shape.

I say try to trade the pick. Go after Love, Cousins, Aldridge, Horford and more. Say we go with Demarcus Cousins. Cousins is 22 and a presence down low. Cousins averaged 17.1 ppg, 9.9 rebounds with a 20.21 PER and he's ready to leave Sac. Cousins is a player with crazy potential at 22 and he will grow playing alongside Irving, Waiters and Thompson. I still say go after Dorrell Wright at SF. He's a wing that gets you points. Here's some Boogie (Cousins) highlights.

WOOHOO!!!

Cousins would be my number 1 target. The starting line up would look like this next year:

PG - Irving

SG - Waiters

SF - Wright

PF - T.T.

C - Cousins

Instead of waiting for Noel. This is a WIN NOW mentality that can build a scary team.
