NBA: Cavs Struggles

By Rahul Walia, reporter

The Cleveland Cavaliers have been struggling this season as the oldest team in the NBA. With Brooklyn Net’s first round pick, the Cavaliers face a decision. They have an option to trade that pick for an elite or sub par players to build around LeBron to make a run at this years championship or keep the pick for next year. However, depending on what they do with the pick, LeBron will become a restricted free agent and hasn’t committed to coming back to Cleveland. The Milwaukee Bick just fired their head coach, Jason Kidd, and that raises the question, should the Cavaliers fire Tyron Lue and find a new and more experienced head coach. LeBron is definitely not to blames for the Cavaliers recent struggles. Over his past six games, LeBron is performing essentially to his season average, if not slightly better, as noted by the chart below. In fact, LeBron has triple-doubles in back-to-back games for the first time since March 2009. A word of caution to Cleveland: LeBron’s minutes might become an issue. In his past three games, James has played 133 minutes. It’s the first time in almost eight years that he has played at least 43 minutes in three straight games. March 2009, when James was 24 years old, was the last time this happened.
