Top 5 2015-16 Starting Lineups
Luckily, the Cavs were able to retain 4 of the 5 starters from last season whom all had contract options or free agency this summer. Kyrie should bounce back from his season-ending surgery, as should Love, and assist LeBron toward reaching the Finals again. There’s not much to be said about LeBron, aside from the fact that he is the best player in the game currently, is in his prime, and the stats seem to indicate that he should play more efficiently this coming season. The additions of Mozgov and Shumpert paid off for the Cavs last January, as it changed the team identity and gave them the manpower to make runs on their way to the Finals. Mozgov should and most likely will continue to play great supporting basketball and Shumpert should improve on his 3PT and defensive playmaking in his first full season with the team. It’s more than likely that the Cavs will come out of the East victoriously, but the pieces that the Cavs have gives them a good chance against whoever comes out of the West.
