Really just sucks to put so much energy into this shit all year only to be blocked by the most talented team of all time getting help from the most biased refs since Lac/Sac in the early 2000's...

Yet...I really hope LBJ stays so we can do it again next year....lol..I'll recharge! I like at least having a chance. You only have a chance if you get to play in the games ...

Improve/change the roster using our newfound assets/trade flexiblity. The Cavs have the pieces to massively overhaul this roster and put a much better product on the court next season next to LeBron. That's the main thing going for us in the Bron sweepstakes...the Cavs definitely have moves to make if they want them. Hopefully something is out there that truly makes a difference.
Well, the people on the outside say there is no way for this team to overhaul, so who is right?

The people, I am afraid.

We don't have much assets. We may improve as a team and become better.

But it won't be enough to keep LeBron imo.

Well, LeBron can go then (no ill will) if having him just means I get to be gutpunched in June by the greatest team of all time every year.

Did it for a few years, it just isn't fun anymore.

Yeah. Can understand the frustration.

Thats what LeBron must be feeling as well.

We had a window though imo to genuinely put up a good challenge to the Warriors. It was last summer. Could have done a complete reset and retool of the roster after Kyrie wanted out. Sadly, we didn't pull off the moves required to put up a roster that could genuinely challenge the Warriors.

Now, a lot of dominoes need to fall our way. There's still a bleak hope and chance but not promising.

BTW, the only way we have a great chance of retaining LeBron is if KD decides he has had enough with the Warriors and wants a new challenge. But we know, there's more chance of Jordan Clarkson having 10 assists than that!

I appreciate the @, but damn, this is bleak.

I don't know how to make sense of this series. The biggest disappointment of the entire season, I think, is how our coaching staff has minimized our talent.

We had one of the deepest teams all year. We still have a fairly deep team. Yet, we didn't use our depth. There are few things more disappointing than wasted opportunities. We could have developed our young guys, and put them in an opportunity to succeed. Instead, we invested in JR and the Kardashian.

I am NEVER one to think that I'm smarter than an NBA coach or GM. I know that a lot happens behind the scenes that effects decisions. But I think Lue is quite possibly the worst coach of any team I've ever watched in ANY sport.
This, this is the essence of this season. Just complete ineptitude and unwillingness to at least try the young guys. During the regular season there is absolutely no excuse to play the new guys, none . . .

Well the Eunuch is from DC, and went to UT at Austin.

I would say "Lakers!" but I don't know if he grew up a fan of them.

He's in tech bro. valley along with a stacked team in which he can just do whatever the fuck he wants and win on easy mode from here on out.

Probably get 4 titles or so before some rando team finally gets the pieces together to knock their asses out.

Congrats NBA. Enjoy being ruled by an organizations of sociopaths that would make Patrick Batemen go "Goddamn son, get some help".

Whelp, the end is near and this fucking stings. I loved the intensity to start the game and the others showed up but I knew it wasn't going to last the entire game and, sure enough, it didn't. I just don't understand how the defense continues to be this poor, adjustments need to be made when the opposition as wide open lanes in the paint all game. Plus, you know it makes sense, to try to double a guy who is completely torching any one-on-one defensive scheme. An entire team let 1 man beat them, damn shame. You have off nights to Curry/Thompson and you let KD go off.

This is as much on the players as it is the coaching staff.

Make some fucking adjustments. Even if the staff isn't, as players...try something different. Show some fucking heart.

Two things.

1. Ty Lue killed any hope we had of winning this with his boneheaded decisions.

2. We need LeBron to play at his best to win a game. He doesn't have any room for error. Kinda crazy but thats the truth. He has to play a near flawless game like Game-1 for us to win.
I saw the Cavs defense or lack of knowing how to play kill us.
Too much doubling the wrong player and then not knowing who is open on the weakside or rolling into the lane for a easy bucket.
I fault the coaches for not calling TO when this happens more than once.
It kept happening..the long threes by KD could have been withstood if the Cavs help D was alive.

This is all Lebrons fault for sending a grown man to cry in his mom's arms in the finals of 2012. He didn't even get to the fucking locker room.
