    Not sure if this is how to share webcasts, but following the link should be pretty easy. Personally, I am super-intrigued by Bennett and cannot wait to see more of this guy in the tourney.
    Funny, I was just listening to this when I read your post. Ben Cox tweeted it earlier today.

    Good stuff.

I've always thought if you want a super-sub off the bench, you want someone who is going to create and get buckets, which is more in line with Muhammad's game than McLemore..
    I hear you...

    I dont think either of them would be best served as super subs. I dont think either of them would need to be in Cleveland either. I think both have games that compliment Kyrie alot better as backcourt mates than Waiters, who is the guy I would make a super sub.

    Me, personally, I didnt see Thomas Robinson as BPA after the first 3 were drafted. I still liked Drummond, Barnes and then Robinson. That said, if there is an obvious upgrade over Tristan or either of the upgrades over Waiters (McLemore or Muhammad) are available, then I take BPA this year.

    I was listening over lunch too after following the tweet.

    Didnt care much for what Finnan was saying. Didnt sound very knowledgable to me, especially on college players.

    The second caller Johnathan Tjarks was MUCH better. He raised the question of why Cavs drafted Waiters when its obvious he needs ball in his hands and that undermines Kyrie's game/strengths. Brought up the reality that they may never play well together because of how good both can be but how both need ball.

    Maybe Cavs were taking BPA?

    On 2k, Cavs had the 4th pick and 10th pick, and Noel fell to number 4 so I took him, and somehow Shabazz fell to number 10 so I took him too. And I took Alex Len with the 29th pick. (I also traded Andy and Selby for Deandre Jordan and a 1st)

    So my starting line up is:

    Kyrie/Earl Watson
    Waiters/C.J Miles
    Shabazz/Gee
    Noel/Tristan
    Jordan/Speights/Zeller/Len

    I definitely have too many bigs, so I'm gonna need to move a couple, and hopefully I can get LeBron in the next year

    Well, shit. I forgot about Thomas Robinson!

    The bold doesn't seem accurate, Rch. You were 100% in the TRob camp once the Cavs were on the clock. You were livid that we took Dion over Robinson and you and I argued about those two guys for a while. So at the end of the day and after all your complaining about Grant missing out on Drummond, if you were Cavs GM you too would have passed on him....just for Thomas Robinson instead of Waiters.

    And you...cut the shit with the damned 2K updates in every thread. We're really not all that concerned with your Association.

    Here's some highlights of Nerlens Noel past games. Showing some offensive moves. Still need a lot of work, but he still does has a nice hook shot.

    Im thinking this has to be a tongue in cheek post.

    Whether we were talking here or on FB, I was pretty adamant about my order going Drummond, Barnes, Trob. I felt that TRob was/is better than Tristan and should have been taken of Drummond, HB and Beal were off the board. I wanted no part of MKG. Ive pulled up posts where I talked about that around draft time.

    Amazing how quick he gets off the floor for a guy his size. He always seems to get bumped backwards only to recover in time to block his man's shot. A bit concerning with how easily he's moved around, but hey he's only 18. His first step is elite too, I think he may need to develop more of a face up game like Tristan instead of a back to the basket post game. His hook shots need major work though, it's way too flat for my liking.

    That dude knows his stuff. He writes over at SB Nation, and you can tell he does his homework.

    Never read him. Im going to go check him out now. He said exactly what I was thinking in terms of Cavs drafting lower ceiling guys, and now putting the emphasis on us finding rarities at Center to fit Kyrie and Tristan better.

    Guy must read my thoughts over here

    He actually had me answer a few questions for his blog back in November before the Mavs played in Cleveland.

    It can be found here: http://dallas.sbnation.com/dallas-ma...land-cavaliers


    Interestingly enough, Tristan might read that blog, because he definitely took some of my advice...

    Offensively, I really think he'd be better off forgetting his jumper altogether. Focus on floaters and jump hooks.
