Cavs: the Podcast 0054 – We’re Back

thin-lizzy-the-boys-are-back-in-town-vertigo-2

Phew!  WHAT A SUMMER!

Wait, let me say that again…PHEW!  WHAT!!!!  A!!!!  SUMMER!!!!!!!!!!!

But seriously, has everyone caught their breath?  I sure haven’t.  And yet, we’re only a few weeks out from regular season basketball, and even fewer from preseason.  Whether we’re ready or not, the dream will soon be a concrete, basketball-playing reality.

To put it all into perspective, Robert Nate, Tom, David, and I hopped on the line to discuss the offseason in general, the best moment of the summer, FIBA, former Cavs players (where are they now?!), Kevin Love, NBA 2k15, beer, and music.

As always, we can be found on SoundCloud at: https://soundcloud.com/cavstheblog/0053-were-back

Mal, I listened to that Alt-J album. It just sounds like a mediocre English countryside version of Sigur Ros. It was a disappointment. “Left Hand Free” was the only song that didn’t put me to sleep.

Oh no. Is it bad? I was worried that those guys wouldn’t last.

And I say this as someone who loved their debut album.

Cavs just traded for Keith Bogans

Surprised no one has brought up the Keith Bogans trade yet with the Celtics for the 3 expiring Utah contracts, Dwight Powell and two future 2nd rounders.

Why Bogans? $5.5 million non-guaranteed contract with no restrictions that can be used this NBA season after Jan. 10. Coupled with Haywood’s $10.5 million non-guaranteed deal, that is $16 million that can be used in trade or two separate deals.

So now that it is confirmed that Lebron came here because of winning, and not just to come home, are we (non-Cols division) a slight bit more concerned that he might bugger out a lot sooner than we expected?

No. No one should be worried about this. He’s here for a while. So is Love. Stop worrying Cavs fans. This team is awesome.

Hold on a second, you think this team will be good? I couldn’t tell.

Seriously dude, simmer down a bit. You can ask the Lakers fans how many championships are actually won by all this talking in September.

The Cavs are loaded. There are really no worries about this team. Andy, Haywood, TT, Love can reliably hold down the big positions.

Yes. This team is going to win multiple titles. Of course they are. Yes. You should believe they are going to win more than one championship.

It’s better than the Celtics offseason. THere’s no “we’ll see”. They got LEBRON JAMES AND KEVIN LOVE.

Yes. Yes. Yes. It’s the biggest swing in the history of sports. It’s not close. This Cavs team was awful. Just awful the last 4 years. OMG.

The Miracle Mets probably have them beat in that department.

Ah yes. Agreed. Lived in New York area at the time. The Amazin’ Mets went from being a miserable excuse for a team, winning games in exciting fashion every night – then shocking the world by beating the powerful Oriole team, much like the Knicks beat the mightly Lakers (Chamberlain, West, Baylor, Riley), and Namath’s Jets upset the unstoppable Colts (Unitas et al) that year. (Phil Jackson may have been the back up center on that Knicks team.)

Seaver, Koosman, Gentry, Nolan Ryan, and a bunch of scrappers came out of nowhere.

1969 – What a year to be in New York! Man walked on the moon that year, too.

That would’ve been an awesome time to be in NYC, Underdog. Thanks for that!!!

I’m clearly a Cavs fan, but tiw oudl be nice to see the Knicks win one in my lifetime, too.

Geez. I’m 4 minutes in and I can’t believe some people are saying this isn’t the biggest and best offseason for a Cleveland team ever.
That’s nuts. They got the best player in the NBA, the best PF in the NBA, and signed one of the best PGs in the NBA to a large extension. It’s not even close. GAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH

Hmm, best moment of the summer…I wonder what that will be.

Not what you’d think! Only Tom picked that.
