It’s time to move on. He has. I have. For the most part, we have. The new narrative for the Cavaliers has already begun but now we can focus on that and that alone. The scorned franchise left behind dusts itself off and tries again. Thursday didn’t hurt the way I thought it would in 2010 and truthfully, our franchise has ante’d up and pulled a chair up to the table a whole hell of a lot earlier than I ever would’ve imagined it possible that summer.
Kyrie Irving. I don’t know if he realizes how much easier he made Thursday. I watched the finals and knew deep down it was GOING to happen but every so often ABC threw out a pick-me-up. Uncle Drew. We have taken the first significant step towards rebuilding back to relevancy. The kid is a star in the making. There he was peaking around the corner during timeouts and breaks from the game’s greatest stage. Gilbert and Grant pressed their luck at the 2011 deadline and stumbled onto a young man who has potential enough to give a name to a new era.
Now clearly this second chance has a way to go but the next shoe to drop is coming this Thursday. I can’t recall ever being so excited for any Cleveland sports draft. Ever. The more I look into these prospects the more that I want to draft ALL of them. Seriously, this class is loaded with talent. I want to trade the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and fields of Utica Shale waiting to be fracked in order to get picks 2-5. In reality however atleast we’re seeing the benefit of all of those horrendous games down the stretch in the fact that we do have #4 and are guaranteed to add a VERY good prospect to the young core of Kyrie Irving and Tristan Thompson.no comments
