Bah Gawd. Cavs are off to a 2-0 start. Maybe I should've made a board bet over them although probably not since it seems like there's always at least one shitty team that has a hot first week before falling to reality.Hot takes not taken...Baby Shoes mentioning Collin Sexton in the ROH thread reminded me I almost picked the Cleveland Cavaliers as my surprise overperformers. Combination of the backcourt maturing and Andre Drummond wanting to prove he's still an elite center plus Indiana Pacers possibly declining and that entire division being garbage made me think they could pull off a surprise playoff run. But then I remembered it's Cleveland and they could also just as easily be ass then I would get made fun of and/or have to watch anime again.
KAT fractured his wrist and is out indefinitely.I was really impressed with Anthony Edwards last night in the Jazz game. He looked really strong driving to the hoop and played with a lot of confidence (he was going after Joe Ingles hard when he was guarding him).
I thought Minnesota would finish 14th in the West, if they actually want to defend like they did last night on a regular basis, it will be interesting to see how they play out this year.
