Cleveland Cavaliers

Who would you draft from LeBron James' Cavaliers teams?

Over the last 10 years, we've seen LeBron James carry many flawed rosters to the NBA Finals thanks to super-human, shoulder-bearing performances. As has been well-documented, this 2018 Cavaliers playoff run may top them all.

That idea got us looking back at all the players to throw on a Cavs jerseys during LeBron's second go-around in Cleveland, which drummed up quite the list. And what else to do with this list - we thought - filled with classic and unforgettable names, than have a snake-style draft?

Three NBA Canada staffers got together and did just that, and after the teams were settled, the arguments ensued over whose team would be most dangerous in a playoff series against the Warriors.

Take a look, and you be the judge.
