Here we are. Following the fun-filled offseason for Cleveland fans, their Cavaliers have arguably the best team the NBA has seen in a very long time. After getting LeBron James in free agency and acquiring Kevin Love through a trade with Minnesota, Cleveland now has a championship-contending starting 5. Kyrie Irving is better than ever after leading Team USA to the Gold Medal, an energetic Anderson Varejao is now healthy, and Dion Waiters is looking like an excellent shooting guard after dramatically improving in the summer. From a pure talent perspective, the Cavs seem to have everyone beat. Health and chemistry will be key for how far the Cavaliers go this season; but since both of these factors haven’t been verified and since these five haven’t played together for long, putting them on top of this list is hard to justify. Who takes the crown for the best starting 5 heading into the season?
