Can't think of one player out of the bunch that they acquired that has stood out or made an impression.
During the regular season they helped a lot, in the Post Season, some of them have had their moments. Hill especially has been good for the team.

In all fairness, saying the Cavs wouldn’t make the playoffs was a poor troll job. The pretrade cavs were able to put together a 13 game win streak so acting like they weren’t playoff bound was ridiculous.

True, but all of my comments were in regards to the Cavs being finals bound, and lets face it Cavs weren't finals bound with IT and Crowder. Cavs were a hot mess. IT started playing and it was feasible to say that Cavs might not make the finals. They traded like 5 or 6 guys and got a lot younger and the Finals started becoming a little more reasonable.

Although lets face it, if Kyrie was still playing, Boston may have had just as much of a chance of making to the finals as the cavs.

Im not sure if u have been watching the games lately but there isnt a very big drop off from irving to rozier so far in the playoffs. numbers show with rozier you are missing out on 6ppg but getting getting an increase in boards and assists as well as a huge upgrade in defense. those young guys on the celtics are just playing unreal right now. technically if the celtics finish off philly, they have as much of a chance making it to the finals as the cavs

Rozier has been great for sure, but when it comes down to crunch time in a big game (especially against the Cavs) I'm going with Kyrie every time. Proven clutch and still a much more reliable offensive weapon with way more experience in the post season. Boston would have a way better shot against the Cavs with Kyrie. I'm sure most Boston fans would agree.

All the people saying the Cavs couldn’t improve their defense in the post season are sure eating crow. Can’t believe they made the finals.

Their defense looked pretty meh to me, and no matter if its against Houston or against Golden State, both of those teams will shred them.

If the Cavs can somehow play defense like how they played in G7 I think they'll have chance maybe....
