Seems like all of us pretty much think the same thing will happen this season. However, trades, injuries, and all sorts of other factors certainly come into play as the year goes on. I'm shocked that we all think Kyrie Irving will win RoY. No, really, I am. We all also have pretty pessimistic predictions about the Cavaliers record, so you can be sure to save this link and rub it in our faces when the Cavs are the 6th seed in the East and pull a first round upset.
