    But He has to be willing to shoot it for that to happen.

    Cavs are 0-4 in the preseason and yet still a more likely NBA finalist.

    It's the preseason. Teams don't care much about wins/loses. Its when coaches assess the fitness and strengths/weaknesses of rosters.

    Is this a thread used to defend Ryan Anderson the player?

    Because if it's about his defense he doesn't play any.

    He can't get any rebounds either even though he said he wants to improve on that part. I noticed when we shoot the 3, he goes for the rebound but he is never on the right side of the bounce. Also, as a team I noticed we're crappy at rebounding because our players don't jump up to grab the ball. As much as a stat-padder Westbrook was last year, he's always jumping so damn high to get a rebound.

    Ryno's defense is just terrible. He's just not versatile enough to guard other positions. He even has trouble guarding some 4s because of his weak lower body strength. Melo would've been a huge upgrade over Ryno (he's actually playing proper D for OKC in the pre-season). Ryno's probably going to be almost unplayable against certain teams in the playoffs and is going to be useless if he isn't hitting his shot.

    ryan anerson efensive threa

    fyi melo, like harden, is a capable defender. this crap about him being a terrible defender is similar tune with harden. has to do everythong on offense. and he's not known as someone who plays with all his heart so if he's on a shitty team, he's not gonna give his all. you'll see him play good d this season now that he has a ton of help and will be guarding slower players at the 4, in line with his age.

    Lol Rox can win a championship by referring to their preseason record.....like noT

    Cavs can cruise to their 0-16 defeat and I am still not worried.
