The Cavs are 3-4.
Watching them it's hard to distinguish if they are playing better than last year or worst.
Lebron James and the Cavs have a deeper team this year, but James is a passer. James cannot be a team's number one scoring option, he can't win like that.
James has only won the championship when he had dynamic scorers next to him like: Kyrie Irving or Dwayne Wade in his prime.
The Cavs will be a deep team when they have: Isaiah Thomas, Wade, Jae Crowder, Jeff Green, Derrick Rose, Iman Shumpert, JR Smith, Kevin Love, Channing Frye, Kyle Korver, and Tristan Thompson together.
The Cavs are deep, but do they have that elite scorer who King James can give the ball too and watch him go one on one? If not, they might not beat the Celtics, Bucks, or Wizards out East and won't come close to beating a Western team like the Warriors, Thunder, or Rockets.
The Cavs truly messed up when they couldn't land a Jimmy Butler, Paul George, or even a Carmelo Anthony.
James is great though, and my MVP pick, but he has to prove he can score at will, especially in clutch time without a dynamite scorer by his side. With his size and speed scoring should be easy, no matter how much time is left in the fourth quarter.
