Nice!
Will you go again out of your pocket, or be extremely nice to him all of a sudden?
Anyways, great timing on your part... :)
I wouldn’t spend my own money to go but I’ll definitely be sending some more requests for quote his way haha.

@ me next time Randolph.

I dunno why you come for just me when the site owner has said "I can't wait until Kevin Love is off the team" and things to those effects.

But I do agree with him. He's paid too much when you consider his age and skill set for where this team is right now.

So, yea, love that he's playing well. Hopefully it makes it easier to trade him.

Because it isn't the only thing Ben talks about. I see you were diversifying and talking about the draft after I said something. I'm all for that.

One of those games where they looked like a team and played with each other.
Yeah, it was so few games with JBB and Drummond, I kinda forgot that this team started to play pretty good basketball. Have been trying to go back and watch the last few games to remind myself. I didn't remember that we beat the Nuggets and Spurs in back to back games. We even had a win over the Heat in late Feb., all I remember is the Heat beating our brains out every time we faced them.

Games against Utah and Boston were also really good. Squeakers the Cavs lost but played well. Utah was my fave KPJ game. Looked like he was gonna have a monster game he was everywhere in the first quarter, but he got a concussion and we never saw him again.

There was def reason to be encouraged by Bickerstaff. He made defensive and lineup decisions in game. Beilein couldn't seem to do that. He started Drummond, but would sit him if Tristan was playing better. Major reason I want Tristan back.

He sat Love and Sexton in closing moments too. Showed the team that the team is most is the most important. Guys all say they trust him.

Light looked like it went on for Sexton or maybe the pick and roll simplified his decision making. Just played a much more team based game last dozen games or so

They didn't just get hot. They executed and they played defense. Wish we could have seen the end of the season. I know we missed some cool games. Didn't get the Lakers to Cleveland game.
The Cavs swept the Nuggets, Spurs and Hawks(even though the Cavs had one game left before the pandemic). That's six games....Not bad.

Sexton played well in both Nuggets games.

And,I wanted to see the Lakers game too. I know Lebron would have put on a show in that game.

They played the good teams tough that last stretch would have been fun

The team beat the Heat and 76ers at the end...Granted both teams had players missing due to injuries but it's still an accomplishment....imo


Hell,we gave the Bucks hell in all three meetings but got outscored by 8,4 and 6 points in the last three quarters of the first game and got destroyed in the second quarter in games 2 & 3.


It's teams like the Bulls,Timberwolves & Knicks that we should have won,last season...We had the lead in all of our games against the Bulls but lost at the end.
