Heading into Year 2 of the David Blatt era, as well as the second year of the LeBron James "return"era, the Wine and Gold have large expectations before the ball gets tossed into the air Tuesday evening.
The Cleveland Cavaliers will tip off the 2015-16 season tomorrow night in the Windy City to take on the Chicago Bulls.
Our "Cavaliers Roundtable" consisting of Sam Bourquin, Brad Russell, Jasen Sokol, Ray Horner, and myself broke down the Cavs, their free agent moves, injury concerns, and who they could potentially face in the NBA Finals.
New additions include Richard Jefferson, Mo Williams, and Sasha Kaun.
Ray thinks this team might be the deepest in Cavaliers history.
"I think they really fortified themselves," Horner said. "You worry about the health of these guys, Irving, Varejao, Love, they haven't played a full season, so you worry about the health."
Both Brad and Jasen think that the Cavaliers will be challenged the most by the Bulls, with Jasen saying health is a key factor for them.
"They are the Cavs' biggest rival in the East, they have to stay healthy too to compete with Cleveland," he said. Brad feels that Fred Hoiberg being named the head coach after replacing Tom Thibodeau will constitute some growing pains for the Bulls.
"There's a lot of question marks there," Russell said.
As far as the West, Sammy B says the Spurs "scare him to death" with the additions of frontcourt players David West and LaMarcus Aldridge, while Aaron thinks OKC can get it done with Kevin Durant.
