Did the Cavaliers have a satisfactory offseason in your opinion? For me, they did. I don't like this whole concept of giving out grades for things that we can't possibly evaluate yet, but NBA.com doesn't seem to mind. Their writers gave every team a grade for their offseason efforts. Naturally the Lakers got an "A" and the Magic got an "F" (which I think is awfully premature. Sure, the Magic got hosed, but what other options did they have? See? This is why I hate these things.)

According to NBA.com, the Cavaliers were perfectly average this summer. Obviously, I disagree with this assessment. They apparently think the losses of Anthony Parker and Antawn Jamison are much more significant than I do. They also seem to have ignored the relatively brilliant draft day trade that the Cavs made to jump up and grab Tyler Zeller.

I also seem to think that the additions of Jeremy Pargo, C.J. Miles, and Jon Leuer are much better than the previous dudes coming off the Cavs bench.

I'm just wondering if I'm way off-base and what you guys think of NBA.com's grading. When you consider the fact that the Knicks also got a C and all they did was sign the corpses of Jason Kidd and Marcus Camby and let Jeremy Lin walk for nothing, it seems a little off.

Leave your thoughts and discuss the Cavs offseason as a whole here.
