The effort was there, the shooting was not.
That's exactly why they need to be aggressive to the hoop, instead of chucking prayer 3s. So no, there only minimal effort.
I disagree. We had plenty of open threes that we missed.
Can't just blame effort...other teams simply have better players.
Just knew when Cleveland made those trades the season was over for all the teams in the Eastern Conference.
None of those moves made sense from a value perspective for any of Cleveland's trading partners....none. (Yeah, LA's looking to land LeBron...good luck after giving away the farm.)It wasn't even close to being fair trade value.
Kudos to the Cleveland brass. On the other hand - worst GM's of the year awards for those taking in players Cleveland cast off. Can't think of one that was worth more than a 2nd round pick. Yet, they received top line talent in return.
