Andrew was fired up after the Cavs won. I can only imagine what this podcast would have been like if they lost.
The Cleveland Cavaliers and Kyrie Irving
Player’s only meetings and what’s going on with that
Dion Waiters and maybe not taking a leap as quickly
Anderson Varejao and his age
Can Varejao be traded?
What is this thing that Chris Grant built?
Anthony Bennett and how brutal it is that this is the #1 draft pick
The game doesn’t look natural to Anthony Bennett
Andrew wanted Oladipo. Craig Wanted Ben McLemore
Kirk wrote a fantastic article exploring the trade market available to the Cavs and I wanted to go over it and push him further on it since it has been out there a few days. Of course we also talked about some other stuff like Dwight Howard.
Scott joined me for about 20 minutes to discuss the Cavaliers goings on since winning the NBA draft lottery last night. Here's what we talked about more specifically.
The turmoil of having the first overall pick in the draft
What do you think about the trade down cuteness?
Due diligence and just how little fans and media can do
Nerlens Noel and how good he needs to be in order for Grant to justify taking him
Do you trust Chris Grant to avoid the tendency to chase height and need?
Kevin Love and how unavailable he really is
James Harden wasn’t available until he was either
Lamarcus Aldridge and his availability
Marc Gasol and his ability to be moved
Chris Bosh’s name and how nobody has talked about it yet
Free agency pool and who you would look at in free agency
Zach Lowe’s critique of the NBA lottery event and the Cavs
Craig and Ben Cox break down the Cavs loss to the Celtics. Moral victories stink. Injuries happen, but losing doesn't have to. Cavs crowds. What would Dan Gilbert tell you to do with all this losing? Basketball fans skew young. Why is that? The Spurs and their inimitable style.
Frisbee golf! No it's disc golf.
In addition to the music podcast, Andrew and Craig spent a few minutes talking about the NBA, specifically the Miami Heat streak. We also talked about the Cavaliers and Byron Scott and losing big leads with inferior teams.
