Who would you expect?
LeBron James’ Cavaliers may struggle to jell offensively, and they may not have the personnel to construct an elite defense in any way. Neither of those problems stopped them from getting the NBA’s greatest name chances –mainly since a long season will provide new head coach David Blatt plenty of time to work out the kinks.
And if he can not figure out everything, he’s still got the best player on the planet on his team. That alone is sufficient to justify Cleveland’s area here.
There is reason to believe that the Cavs will hit the floor running on offense, and not just because they have this absurdly gifted core. The truth is we have seen these guys can be through preseason play.
James, Kyrie Irving, Kevin Love and Dion Waiters all attempted three or more triples per game during exhibition season, and all four joined on at least 41 percent of those shots. James, since he is not human, made exactly 50 percent.
You might think it’s impossible for all four of these players to sustain such a large collective percentage, but in an offense where double-teaming anybody –or even helping a smidgen too harshly –results in wide-open opportunities for another scoring dynamo, well. . .let’s just say the potential for offense is there.
Irving was a preseason lightning bolt, with all defenders’ hesitation to leave their missions to dart to the lane whenever he wanted. Drive-and-kick chances were endless, and they will remain –unless the team allows opponents to use six players against Cleveland.
Actually, even then…
Accidents, the slog of an 82-game season and various other uncertainties mean there are no certain things in the NBA.
However, the Cavs come near.
