Take of the day
I posed this question on Twitter the other day, but I am fascinated by what teams the Cavs should be learning from and build like. All involve luck, and no situation is exactly the same, but here are the five I’d most like to see the Cavs learn from:
- Trail Blazers
- Heat (more about the culture, less about the messed up cap sheet)
Portland is probably my top one, only because of the stability Damian Lillard provides that team and how much he enhances the culture of that team. Getting a guy that is both that good and also provides that level of leadership is kind of the dream.
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 sim resulted in the Cavs getting the No. 2 overall pick. They have a 13.4 percent chance of landing that pick.
