The Cleveland Cavaliers begin life without LeBron James again, and these will be the organization’s four more prominent players this season.
The Cleveland Cavaliers find themselves in much better shape from the first time LeBron James departed time.
For the 2018-2019 season, Cleveland still possesses talented veterans, young up-and-comers and a promising rookie.
Cleveland should be entertaining to watch from a pure basketball standpoint.
And exhale. Yes, it’s not the same. If James was here, we’d all be dreaming about Cavs-Warriors V.
Instead, we’ve got to build up the idea of building a team and winning without James.
The storylines are there, though. James is no longer axis on which the Cavs’ tilt and the force that dictates everything the Cavs do.
It’s not competing for the Finals, and we’d all take James back in a heartbeat, but it is it what is. The Cavs are going to be competing for the sixth, seventh or eighth seed in the Eastern Conference.
Some don’t even think they’ll be that good! The Ringer wrote that the over/under on the Cavaliers this season is 30.5.
If this squad defies the odds, these four players will have played a major part in accomplishing this fete, so, if you will, here’s the Cavs’ Mount Rushmore for the 2018-2019 season.
