    With 40 Games left I thought this would be a fun thread to start; Fun to keep track of what members get the most correct. Let's see who gets the most correct!

    1. How many games will we win here on out?


    2.What lottery selection will we get


    3. Will we win the mini- Greg Oden sweepstakes? According to sheridan we are in the final running!


    4.Will we get to swap the Miami pick with the Lakers?


    5.Who are our first two Draft selections in June?


    6. Will Andy be traded before the 2013-2104 season opener?
    Just as I right this he is out for the year offically. So the chances now are much slimmer!

    My Predictions Jan 21.
    1. We will go 13-27 down the stretch

    2. We will get the 3rd spot in the lottry

    3. Greg Oden will not sign with the Cavs

    4. Yes, we will get to swap. The Lakers will get the 7th seed in the West. they will get hot and win 11 out of 15 at some point.

    5. Cavs select Alex Len (secure center position) and lock up our backup PG in the future by slelceting CJ Mccollum in the teens. Memories of the Mark Price Terrel Brandon duo rekindled!

    6. Andy will be traded for a young prospect with less then 3 years of experience and top 5 protected future 1st round pick at the end of trianing camp. provided he is healthy!

    1. We will win 11 more games this season.

    2. Will will get the second pick in the draft.

    3. Oden will sign here because it's his best shot to get minutes to play himself back to where he was before he got hurt.

    4. The Lakers will miss the playoffs and, sadly, we won't get their pick.

    5. The first two draft selections are Noel and McLemore, although in what order I can't predict.

    6. If Varejao comes back and finishes the season strong, he will be traded on draft night.

    Edit: I swear the news about Varejao being out for the season came out like a minute after I wrote number six.

    Just a clarification, number 5 is who The Cavs first two slections will be on draft night!
    Also looks like I need to change the Andy question :(

    4. Lakers will get the 7th seed

    1. 12-28
    2. 2nd pick in the draft. Somehow, the Kings will get the 1st pick with the news of them moving to Seattle
    3. Oden will sign elsewhere
    4. Lakers aren't making the playoffs. Time to enjoy them losing.
    5. Cavs take Noel and Brandon Paul (realistically, I think they find a way to trade up from the Miami pick but if not...)
    6. Andy is going nowhere

    1. Probably somewhere between 9-13; unless the young group goes on a tear, then we could maybe hit 15 or 16.
    2. We'll probably get the #3 pick with our luck.
    3. God I hope not.
    4. Lakers will be in the playoffs.
    5. Like above, I'd love to get Noel and Brandon Paul.
    6. Nope.

    11 more games, and that's all I'm answering, because that's all I care about right now. Wins.

    1.) 13 for unlucky sake

    2.) 2nd (I hope)

    3.) Yes and with a good deal

    4.) Yes, no way Kobe doesn't get that team into the playoffs

    5.) Shabazz and trade the other

    6.) I've given up, Andy will never be traded

    1. How many games will we win here on out?
    Cavs finish out the season 15-25
    2.What lottery selection will we get
    Cavs get the 2nd pick from the 3rd seed.
    3. Will we win the mini- Greg Oden sweepstakes? According to sheridan we are in the final running!
    I hope not. It's more like the Greg Oden shell game, where the winner gets the shell of Greg Oden.
    4.Will we get to swap the Miami pick with the Lakers?
    Yes, The Cavs still get the Lakers pick.
    5.Who are our first two Draft selections in June?
    Alex Len and Jamaal Franklin and everyone is disappointed because we passed on Noel.

    No.

    No.... sadly not, but he will come off the bench and play limited minutes until the trade deadline where we will try to unsuccessfully get a deal done.

    Cavs will have second worst record (Charlotte) but pick third.

    He will sign with the Heat.
    4.Will we get to swap the Miami pick with the Lakers?

    If Chris Grant hasn't traded him by now I see no reason to expect he will trade him in the future.

    Not going to offer up any predictions, but those of you who think Andy will be included in a draft day trade are crazy. No GM is going to trade for Andy without first seeing how he recovers from this latest injury.

    For the record, I literally posted my response about a minute before it was released that Varejao would be out for the rest of the season. :(
