2010 vs 2014 by Jourdyn Thompson
As we all know LeBron is going back home to play for the Cleveland Cavaliers. So its gets me to think about the last time LeBron played for the Cavs and will this team be better than the 2010 team. In 2010 the starting five consist of Mo Williams, Anthony Parker, LeBron James, Anderson Varejao, and Zydrunas Ilgauskas. This team lost to Boston in six games, which led James to take his talents to south beach. If the roster stays how it is right now, the projected starting five would be Kyrie Irving, Andrew Wiggins, LeBron James, Tristan Thompson, and Anderson Varejao. I would have to say that the 2010 team is a lot better than the 2014 team. I know that this 2014 is a lot younger and may have nice potential, but I haven't seen anything from Thompson and Wiggins to put them over the top. I know Wiggins is a rookie, but I didn't see too much in college either. The 2014 team may look better, but what happens when the starters come out? If you look at 2010 they had a way better bench team then they will in 2014. You still had Shaq that could play a little bit, Daniel Gibson that could shoot the ball and Delonte West who could attack the rim anytime. Now I understand that they have gone out and got Mike Miller a natural born shooter and James Jones who best days are behind him, but that's only two people that play the same position.
