08:05 AM ET 08.22 | C.J. Miles figures that by going to Cleveland, he'll come out from the shadows. [Miles] did what was asked of him for seven years with the Utah Jazz, which often meant playing a secondary role behind stars such as Carlos Boozer and Deron Williams. Part of the reason he chose the Cavaliers in free agency this summer was the opportunity to expand his game. "I just thought he has so much left in him basketball-wise and it's really untapped," Cavs coach Byron Scott said Tuesday at the team's charity golf outing at Firestone Country Club. "There are so many things he can do on a basketball court." ... [Said Miles:] "I think a lot of people feel like I am who I'm going to be, which I don't believe is true and obviously the organization feels the same way."

I wonder if he will be bankrupt once he's out of the league a few years?

Unlikely. The Cavs tend to only go after the smarter players. That's why you never hear about former Cavs driving under the influence, filing bankruptcy, beating their wives, or having babies with multiple women.

You can go to a terrible team and be their best player. Doesn't mean much. Other than Kyrie, who else is there to compete for shots? Jack up as many jumpers as you like, and eventually you'll start averaging 15-16 PPG. Most improved player of the year!!! LOL

I don't think they'll win any more games than they did last year.
