I'm not so sure that Cleveland is going to the finals, Pacers match up pretty well but still Cleveland's defense is bad.

I would just like to say that I am extremely jealous of Milwaukee. The Bucks managed to take Giannis Antetokounmpo 15th overall in 2013 and took Malcolm Brogdon 36th last year.

In those two drafts, role player Rich Cho took Cody Zeller and traded a 1st for Marco Belinelli.

Sure, revisionist history is easy to play considering a number of teams passed on Giannis. Brogdon may not be a superstar, but he's going to be good for a long time. An NBA GM has two jobs in my opinion:

  • 1. Find a superstar.
  • 2. Build the team after finding the superstar.

It still burns me that Rich Cho's option was picked up. The Plumlee trade was a fireable offense. Role player Rich is not capable of finding a superstar. This goes back to 2011, where he took Bismack Biyombo over Kawhi Leonard and Jimmy Butler.

It is the job of the GM and his scouting staff to project how good a player can be, this front office has proven they cannot do it.

I'll still support the Hornets. End of rant.

Oh, it'll be Cavs and Warriors in the Finals.

    • I am as big of a Cam fan as there is, but no he's not perfect. BUT, I will say, in his defense, a good deal of his shortcomings are due in part to offensive scheme and design.  You brought up Brady, whose offense is designed around getting the ball out quick and with timing and letting the receivers make plays.  The biggest complaint on this board since Chud left has been the lack of quick hitting, easy completions created by short, quick routes.  And while I see a lot of articles now about how Cam lacks accuracy on short and intermediate routes, and has ranked as the league worst, at least in 2016, he didn't struggle with such issues under Chud.  Our screens were a lot crisper for one and the routes were more varied and creative.  Furthermore, the last two or three seasons' decline in short and intermediate accuracy coincides with having a receiving corps among the leagues worst in getting separation.  Now, we draft two guys that are quick, fast and can get open in a hurry and overhauled the receiving corps with Shepard and Johnson as well.  I think people are going to see the accuracy problem was more due to scheme and personnel than it was Cam.  If healthy, he's going to have a ridiculous year.
