03:31 PM ET 12.10 | The Cleveland Cavaliers will get a major shot in the arm before Tuesday's game against the Los Angeles Lakers. Star point guard Kyrie Irving will be cleared to return to game action after missing 11 games with a fractured finger. Irving was ruled out of game action on Nov. 19 and was expected to miss four weeks. He is instead returning after just over three weeks. The Cavaliers have sunk to a 4-17 record in Irving's absence.

Even with Kyrie they're going to sink a lot lower. Especially if they trade Varejao.

Remember that comment when the Cavs return to prominance in a few years. We got 4 first round picks this coming draft as well as the 1st and 2nd year guys getting better. The 5 year plan is right on target.

I agree, the Cavs development is right on.. should make it 3 or 4 years though. Thinking one more #1 draft pick should do the trick though

QUOTE(#16):

I'm not trying to pick a fight so please don't misunderstand what I'm about to say. The Cavs have always gotten draft picks. Draft picks are not the problem. Evaluating talent and keeping the talent they acquire is the challenge. Unless the Cavaliers can figure out a way to stop the bleeding long enough that the team has enough experienced talent at a given time that players don't want to break camp for greener pastures, they will never truly be successful.

Very true.

Talent evaluation is key when drafting. Look at the Spurs. Look at OKC. They had picks and made the right choices because they have guys who know what real talent looks like. The Cavs seem to struggle with that unless they have the number one pick.
