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.

  • Kirk’s NBA Draft Rumors article
  • Being an eighth seed and the pains of it 
  • The finishing of one three year plan and starting another to compete for a title 
  • Oklahoma City trading Harden one season too early to Houston 
  • Should OKC have played one more year and taken a CLE deal? 
  • Did people expect Harden to be as good as he’s been this season in Houston? 
  • Demarcus Cousins and how scared we all are of him 
  • Luol Deng and why he might or might not work
  • Joe Johnson contract hell
  • Deron Williams and the Brooklyn cap space situation
  • Dwight Howard and whether or not you can gamble with him
  • Would you take a chance on Dwight Howard with the Cavs? (hypothetically) 
  • The Dream scenario and how Kevin Love is not a possibility 
  • What if the Cavs do nothing? 
  • How coachable are the Cavs’ young guys like Kyrie Irving, Tyler Zeller and Tristan Thompson? 
  • Missing Delonte West and loving his game
  • Ben McLemore and Nerlens Noel and who they can become

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

  • Players and how goofy they look on the dais

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.
