It’s time to focus our attention on what we do have. And somewhere, buried under all of that distaste for our former King, there’s a Cavalier Fanatic that believes this team can still compete this season. I’m not claiming that we have what it takes to win a championship right now because, as optimistic as I am, I don’t even believe that. But the Cavs have some very steady pieces that, if they work together, could finish the regular season in the top eight in the Eastern Conference. (For those of you that don’t follow me, that means they’ll make the playoffs).
So I am going to take the next couple weeks to break down our current team so that, by the end of this series, maybe we can all see just how dangerous this team can be.
Remember: We’re Clevelanders. There is no counting us out!
So without further ado, let’s take a look at #13 Danny Green.
Danny Green – Guard (6’ 6”, 210)
Danny Green is a proven winner. He is the most winningest player at the University of North Carolina and he is the only player in the ACC to ever record 1,000 points, 500 rebounds, 250 assists, 150 three pointers, 150 blocks and 150 steals. Case and point: he’s versatile.
The six feet-six inch Tar Heel alum didn’t get much of a chance to show off his skills – outside of his dance moves – under Mike Brown last season, but he will likely make his way into the back court rotation of new coach Byron Scott.
There isn’t a whole lot I can tell you about this one. We know that he has the ability to shoot the basketball from anywhere on the floor and, most certainly, will be able to get up and down the floor to score his points this season. But he has yet to prove that his magnificent college career can translate to anything more than an energetic cheerleader from the sidelines. It will be interesting to see what the young guard can do this season under Coach Scott.
“Young men… The journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step… Average is just not good enough period.”
