I stopped by Cleveland Clinic Courts on Monday for Media Day but unfortunately my staff photographer called off sick leaving me to take the pictures posted below. I'm pretty sure my photog skills won't have SI knocking down my door anytime soon, but I thought I'd post them anyways.
What I took away most from media day was the sense of two conflicting sentiments which were both expected and understandable amongst Cavs players at this point. From the younger guys you could definitely hear and sense the optimism fueled by not only their hunger to make their marks on this team and the league, but also the excitement about the opportunity they're presented with through this rebuilding process.
From some of the older vets, today wasn't like it was this time last year and they said as much. It's a new day means new expectations, new teammates, and new playbooks.
