Live Thread: Cavs vs. Knicks (#EverythingsNotAwesome)

Everything’s not awesome
Everything’s not cool
I am so depressed
Everything’s not awesome
Whoa, I think I finally get Radiohead
(Bro, you should check out Elliott Smith)

What’s the point
There’s no hope
Awesomeness was a pipe dream
(Aye, my spirits be at the bottom of the sea)

Love’s not real
I just want to eat carbs
Pass the ice cream
(I’m not a thing you can just use to fill emotional voids with)

Stop. Everyone okay, just… ugh, listen…

Everything’s not awesome
But that doesn’t mean that it’s hopeless and bleak
Everything’s not awesome
But in my heart I believe

We can make things better
If we stick together
Side by side you and I
We will build it together
(Build it together, together forever)

This song’s gonna get stuck inside your…
This song’s gonna get stuck inside your…
This song’s gonna get stuck inside your…

Heart

Everything’s not awesome
Things can’t be awesome all of the time
It’s unrealistic expectation
But that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t try

To make everything awesome
In a less idealistic kind of way…

These are most of the lyrics from the main song in the new Lego Movie 2: The Second Part. I’ll be honest, the movie wasn’t awesome. But, it did get me thinking about the Cavs this season. Sure, everything’s not awesome like it used to be, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be again. First though, the Cavs have to endure another tank battle with the New York Knicks for the opportunity to draft Zion Williamson this summer… and get on the road to being awesome again.

Kevin Love should be there, even if Cedi Osman and Tristan Thompson are still out. Maybe even the nomadic Sauce Castillo will make things a little more awesome with an appearance.

Prediction: The Knicks, who are trying to be a little less awesome than the Cavs these days in the race for the number one draft position, tank just a little harder as Cleveland wins 98-88.

Catch all the action… starting right now on FSO, and don’t forget to chime in your awesome thoughts below…

CLF is on point.

Schaudenfruede files:
1) Lakers are 10th in the west
2) Boston is 5th in the east. Morris is ripping his teammates committment to the team and said there is no joy.
3) Boston, as of right now, is down to 2 picks this year. Though that could change. Grizz sit 6th and keep it if it is 1-8. Clips pick is lotto protected and LAC is now behind Sac. The Sac pick conveys but is now 18th. Celts pick is 23rd.

Zion league wins (remaining SOS)

10: NY (19th)
11: PHX (27th)
12: Cavs (13th)
13: Bulls (17th)
————-
18: Hawks (16th)

Cavs played terribly, but they still won… which I think is an encouraging sign of growth.

Cavs won this game by shooting and making nearly double the amount of threes that the Knicks took/made, and by out-rebounding the Knicks by 10. It would seem to suggest that they took the right shots and gave great effort. That’s all you can ask of a young, tanking team.

Lin reportedly getting bought out. Heading to Raptors. Big with VanVleet out 3-4-weeks.

Zone is not gonna work if Love is out there.

Larry has taken a leap this year. He is a foundational piece. When he starts being a tad more aggressive around the basket, lookout.

If he continues to make threes and they run an actual offense thru him and love they could be competitive with other passers on the floor like Cedi, Delly, etc.

How is it possible an NBA team can play a 2-3 zone for about 40 possessions in a row and not obliterate it. Yowser. That is basic stuff.

They also turned it over a ton, took contested shots and forced shots in the teeth of the d that got blocked or were difficult. They got it middle a number of times but that guy needs to shoot or people need to cut hard baseline and/or shift on the perimeter to give him passing lanes.

I often wonder what last year would’ve been like if they’d fired lue and hired Fizdale at mid-season.

MikeO
Guest

Fizdale would have never taken the job, and that’s aside from the fact that wholesale replacements of staff are impossible mid season. Or is the idea that a team hires a new head guy, from totally outside the current staff, and he keeps the old guy’s assistants? Would never happen.

LBJ would still be in Cleveland with probably another all star besides Kevin. There’d be crazy daily drama, we’d be in fifth or sixth place, we’d struggle in the first round, then sweep the Raptors and Celtics and lose to GS in five games.

Any NBA team should be able to torch a zone if they see it for more than 3 possessions.

Part of solving this zone is not just just standing at the wing, it’s cutting against the zone overplay to the wing.

Is Zizic hurt? We need some size. NY is playing two bigs. Chriss is too soft to play C.
