Pretty big day yesterday, the Cavs took Irving as expected with the 1st and surprised quite a few with Thompson at 4. I gotta admit I didn’t know Tristan at all prior to the pick and I just hope Coach Scott and GM Grant know more than I do.
I the 2nd round they picked Milan Macvan from Serbia – 6′ 9” 260 lbs… that’s all I know
Feels good to be at the center of the NBA Universe again. I gotta admit I missed it.
Cavs have the 1 and the 4 but we’ve heard all sorts of rumors about trades and changes. Twitter is a blessing and a curse. So much information is available but its hard to sift through it all. We will see.
Cavs have been spotty with drafts. Traditionally always making the right pick at #1 (Carr, Big Brad, LBJ) and making good 2nd round picks. But in the last 15 years we’ve NOT done so great at mid lottery picks.
After PO’ing coach Scott over the last few games by not “getting” the offense down and with the threat of losing out on his starting spot, Scott went ahead and named J.J. as the starter and veteran Antawn Jamison will be coming off the bench.
“INDEPENDENCE — Just four days after calling out J.J. Hickson for his lack of focus in the Cavaliers final pre-game game, coach Byron Scott named Hickson his starter at power forward for Wednesday’s regular-season opener against the Boston Celtics at The Q.
That means veteran Antawn Jamison will be coming off the bench.
Scott said Hickson responded with strong practices over the weekend. Meanwhile, he thinks a bench headlined by Jamison and Daniel Gibson will be a strength for the Cavs.”
