Why the Cavs Need a Center?
What can the Cavs do?

The Grim Reaper of injuries have collected a lot of bodies early in the season

The NBA decided to move the upcoming 2017 NBA All Star weekend in New Orleans almost a month after the NBA pulled and change the intended plan that should be at Charlotte. The chosen city which was Charlotte had a controversial House Bill 2 that discriminated the LGBT Community in the whole state. The NBA did not agree in the said law.
It must be a celebration of the New Orleans community.
June 28, 2012 (America), June 29, 2012 (Philippines), The New Orleans Hornets selected Anthony Davis with the first overall pick in the 2012 NBA draft.
Davis played one season of college basketball for the University of Kentucky, when he was first team All-American and the Consensus National Player of the Year. He also won the USBWA National Freshman of the Year, NABC Defensive Player of the Year and the Pete Newell Big Man Award. Davis led the NCAA in blocks and set Southeastern Conference and NCAA Division I freshman single-season blocked shots records. Davis led Kentucky to a National Championship and was named Most Outstanding Player of the NCAA tournament.
He left college for the NBA after one season and was drafted by New Orleans, and was selected that summer to play for the Team USA in the 2012 Olympics.
Here are the list of the NBA Players who withdraws from USA Basketball Team for upcoming 2016 Rio Olympics:
Stephen Curry – Need to rest due to Ankle and Knee Injury
Chris Paul – Need to rest for next NBA Season due to his broken hands last 2016 playoff
John Wall – Underwent procedures on both knees
Russell Westbrook – First player to pull out without giving a reason
James Harden – Did not specify a reason for withdrawing
Anthony Davis – Knee and Shoulder Injury
Blake Griffin – Quad Injury
Lamarcus Aldridge – Finger and Hand Injury
Pelicans: New Orleans played without six injured players — centers Omer Asik and Alexis Ajinca, guards Tyreke Evans and Norris Cole and forwards Quincy Pondexter and Luke Babbitt
NBA 2K16 graced the masses with their official top 10 list, and while there are some surprises, this is a pretty solid group. LeBron James tops the ranks with a 94 overall, followed by Stephen Curry (93), Anthony Davis (92), and James Harden (92), the game’s trio of cover athletes. Rounding out the top five is Kevin Durant, who received a 91 after an injury-filled season. No. 6 is Chris Paul, who receives a 90, followed by 89 overall Russell Westbrook. This could stir some controversy, mind you, given that Westbrook is the cover athlete for the other basketball game, EA’s NBA Live. The final three spots go to Carmelo Anthony, Blake Griffin and LaMarcus Aldridge, all rated at 88.
In just three seasons, Anthony Davis has already established himself as one of the best power forwards in the NBA. Davis was selected to the All-NBA First Team last season, is a two-time All-Star. At 22 years old, New Orleans Pelicans forward Anthony Davis is just scratching the surface of the player he could be but that hasn’t stopped Shaquille O’Neal from already telling his 15-year-old son Shareef to pattern his game after the Pelicans forward.
Instead of pushing him to pattern his game after him, O’Neal said he’s told his son to learn the game by watching power forward Anthony Davis, the New Orleans Pelicans’ transcedent star who finished fifth in the league’s MVP voting last season.
“I told him to watch Anthony because he’s probably going to be the same height and have the same type of build, not skinny, but long.” said O’Neal.
Alvin Gentry could be the one that would guide the Pelicans to a better season.
“Gentry, who is currently a top Golden State Warriors assistant, has been hired as New Orleans’ new head coach, according to a person familiar with the situation.”
If there’s one thing that I would remember about Gentry, it was the time when they sweep San Antonio Spurs in 2010. This was probably the best season of Grant Hill post injury and Amare Stoudamire who was just a monster during that season. Steve Nash was also effective but it was Stoudamire who led them in points and reb per game (23.1 and 8.9 reb). The Suns Reached the Western Conference Finals but lost to the Lakers.
Gentry will be mentoring another great Big and his stint with the Warriors will play a major effect on Anthony Davis. Gentry is also in a win now situation so any moves that he would make would be critical to the organization and that could effect the decision of Anthony Davis when he becomes a free agent.
One thing is for sure barring any injuries expect that the Pelicans would have a better seeding in the playoffs under Gentry.
Jeff Van Gundy
Left to right , Evans, Davis, Holiday, Andersen, Gordon..
Jeff Van Gundy one of the most sought after coach for years due to his experience. Van Gundy is the head coach that brought excitement and winning record for the New Yorks Knicks back in 1998-99 season they were seated as the 8th seed that got to NBA finals but lost to the San Antonio Spurs (That New York team is the only 8th seeded team up to date that got to the NBA Finals.
Enough of the Trivia,Van Gundy is the one that intrigues me the most because its been almost 8 years since the last time he has coached an NBA Team not saying he is rusty but due to the fact that he has been broadcasting he was able to make comments that one would wonder if he was the coach it would have been a better result.
Van Gundy will be coaching the league’s next best big man in Anthony Davis. They have some tweeks that they need to do to improve that roster.But if its up to me I would love to have him back and coach the Pelicans. Other possible candidates, Tom Thibodeau and Alvin Gentry.
