Perhaps the biggest story of the NBA off season was the return of LeBron James to the Cleveland Cavaliers where he formerly played from 2003 to 2010. With the addition of “The King”, the Cavaliers are now favored to win the NBA Championship as opposed to last year where they didn’t even make the playoffs with a 33-49 record. The Cavaliers this year are stacked with a better roster even without LeBron James in the picture. They added Kevin Love, a three-time NBA All Star and resigned 2014 NBA All Star Game MVP Kyrie Irving to a 5 year, $90 million contract hoping to keep their new core team together for the future.  In addition to adding two of the best players in the league, they would add Mike Miller and James Jones, two of Lebron’s teammates in Miami, and Shawn Marion, who is a four time NBA all Star and one time champion himself. This adds to a core team already featuring Anderson Varejao, Dion Waiters, Tristian Thompson, and Matthew Dellavedova from last year’s team. The Cavaliers also added one of the best international coaches, David Blatt, who coached the Russian National Team to Bronze medal in the 2012 Olympics and was named the 2014 Euroleague Coach of the Year. The Cavaliers last went to the playoffs in 2010 with Lebron still there, and now they’re hoping that with an all-star lineup and coach, that they can make it back to the championship in 2015.
