Crazy to think how much Andy would have impacted this series. There isn't a better small ball center out there. He is exactly what we needed, and this is coming from someone who hates the guy.

BTW FUCK Kelly Olynyk. I don't care that he is Canadian. Fuck him. Love would have changed this series .At the end of the day there is a reason a dude is all star. Add KLove shooting, passing and rebounding and PnR with Lebron. The entire fucking dynamic changes.

We will never be as deep as GS. Their GM did a great job of building that team - last year.
It took years for them to assemble that deep roster. It doesn't happen in a matter of months. The work was done after they drafted their centerpieces in Steph and Klay Thompson through this year.

They've had David Lee since 2010.

In 2012, they got Bogut and Ezeli and then drafted Green/Barnes. That pretty much took care of their frontcourt.

The next two years were devoted to putting together quality reserve wings. In 2013, they snatched up Iguodala. This year, they grabbed Livingston and Barbosa. They threw in Speights for good measure.

So, while we just tried to throw together a contender in under a year, it took them four years of building after drafting Curry and Thompson. There is still plenty of time for the Cavs to add depth to this roster. It will take some shrewd moves and drafting well, but it is absolutely possible.

We're already pretty deep when healthy. A frontcourt of Love, Mozgov, TT, Varejao and LBJ is the best in the league, period. We have the best SF in the NBA who can basically play any position. Then, there is Kyrie and two solid SGs. Toss in Delly and that is absolutely enough depth/versatility to win the title. Health will be the biggest issue, as always. But let's not pretend Golden State did this overnight or that the depth was all added last year. It took them a solid four years to put this versatility/depth together.

If my aunt had balls, she'd be my uncle.
Maybe your aunt was CIAS?
"CAIS women are born with relatively shallow vaginas, requiring or not repairing surgery, and undescended testicles"

Maybe Kyrie could have fought through the pain?
Maybe Olynyk is a hit man for the NBA mafia?
Maybe Curry and Iggy really are MVPs?

We will wait for the exciting answers, more to come next year!
Ciao, RealCavFans!

Whatever. On to next year. They need to just stay fucking healthy.
At this very moment, Healthy Kyrie Irving and Healthy Kevin Love are scrimmaging Healthy Nerlens Noel and Motivated Derrick Coleman on Planet Bullshit! Right Keys?

Fuking. Aye. Why did we not hack the shit out of him earlier. So Kerr takes him out.. Good he's not on Lebron. Stupid
What a painful reminder that Iggy is the FMVP. It's basically screaming: YOU SHOULD HAVE HACKED ME.
