J.B. Bickerstaff has helped develop this young roster into a fringe contender in the Eastern Conference. Cleveland doubled its win total from 22 wins to 44 wins last season, and the Cavaliers entered the Play-In Tournament as the No. 8 seed. Unfortunately, they lost to the Brooklyn Nets and Atlanta Hawks, and they were unable to make the postseason for the fourth straight year as a result. However, the Cavaliers might be ready to turn the corner, as this young team continues to come into its own.

Evan Mobley was the favorite to be named NBA Rookie of the Year for most of last season. Mobley averaged 15.0 PPG and 8.3 RPG in his first year with Cleveland, making an instant impact for the Cavaliers. He made over 54% of his two-pointers, and he was a decent free throw shooter too. Mobley pairs well in the frontcourt with Jarrett Allen, and that allows veterans Kevin Love and Robin Lopez to come off the bench.

Collin Sexton is coming off a major injury that led to him playing just 11 games last year. That led to the Cavaliers taking Ochai Agbaji from Kansas in the NBA Draft, and the hope is that either Agbaji or Isaac Okoro can play significant minutes if Sexton isn’t the same player.

Darius Garland and Caris LeVert are currently slated to be the starting guards in the backcourt though. Garland was one of the top guards in the Eastern Conference last year, averaging 21.7 PPG and 8.6 APG as the leader of the team. Cleveland traded for Caris LeVert in February, and he posted decent numbers. LeVert could be a quality guard if he learns to accept a secondary role in the offense.

The Cleveland Cavaliers were born as an NBA expansion franchise in 1970-71 and struggled to keep the attention of local fans until the late 1980s, when they emerged as a quality team under coach Lenny Wilkens. The Cavs developed the reputation of being good but not quite great and somewhat snakebit from that point. The iconic image of Michael Jordan killing them off with the game-winning shot in a playoff series summed up what the Cavaliers were all about in those days.

However, the arrival of local phenom LeBron James in 2003 changed all that. James led the Cleveland Cavaliers to their first NBA Finals appearance in 2007, and the team posted a franchise-best record of 66-16 during the 2008-09 season. They were a contender for five years, but the lack of a quality supporting class led to James leaving for Miami after the 2010 season. Cleveland went from 61-21 to 19-63 the following year, yet that bottoming out allowed the Cavaliers to draft Kyrie Irving and build a supporting cast for James to return to after four years in Miami.

James turned Cleveland into Believeland upon his return to the Cavaliers. The franchise had its most successful run in history with James and Irving leading the way, making it to the NBA Finals four straight times. Cleveland knocked off the Golden State Warriors in the 2016 NBA Finals to give the city its first major sports title in decades, leading to widespread joy in the streets.

Once again, James left Cleveland for another team following the 2017-18 season. Kyrie Irving moved on from the Cavaliers too at that point, leading to the franchise bottoming out once more. That put the Cavaliers back in the lottery, and they built the team through the NBA Draft once again by taking Collin Sexton, Darius Garland, Isaac Okoro, and Evan Mobley over the last five years.
