Cup of Cavs: Just enjoy Kevin Love

We’re back and with a logo!

NBA: Memphis Grizzlies at Cleveland Cavaliers David Richard-USA TODAY Sports

Cup of Cavs is back! And with a logo that you can find on social media — thanks to Christine Stankiewicz for the work. She also designed our new podcast logos, by the way.

Take of the day

This is more of a fact than a take, but I feel as if it needs to be said: Kevin Love makes the Cavs more watchable and that should not be rooted against. Even if the Cavs win a handful of more games because he’s back, that is much better thing to watch than whatever it was the Cavs were putting on the floor before he was back. And odds are, they are still going to have a really high pick in the draft.

So, don’t stress about the draft odds and enjoy Love being Love and being back on the court.

Draft watch

As of today, the Cavs have the third-worst record in the NBA. They have a 52.1 percent chance of landing a top-four pick and a 14 percent chance of landing the No. 1 overall pick. They could pick as low as No. 7 overall.

Today’s Tankathon sim yielded the Cavs the sixth overall pick in the 2019 NBA Draft. The Cavs have a 26 percent chance of landing that pick
