Following what Hicks started:
"Borrowing an idea seen on the RealGM Pistons board, we're going to go through, one team at a time, each team in the NBA, and discuss their potential for the 2004-2005, and ultimately decide if that team is going to be a Contender or a Pretender.
I'll start by listing who I think will be the starters, the bench players, and the head coach.
From there it's up to everyone to discuss this team, how good they could or should be, what record they might get, predict how their key players will perform, and ultimately decide if they are going to contend or pretend they are playing for the NBA Championship in 2005. (edit... or just for the playoffs)
I'm going to do this in alphabetical order from Atlanta to Washington.
Vol. 5 is the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Probable starters (if I get these wrong tell me yours)
Dasagna Diop, Jeff McInnis, Ira Newble, Alexander Pavlovic, Robert Traylor, Anderson Varejao, Dajuan Wagner
Head Coach: Paul Silas
