We invite NBC Sports ProBasketballTalk writer and CavsTheBlog founder John Krolik on to talk about the Cavs and what they went through last year and what he did to help the Cavs win the lottery.

Then, Michael and I play "Starter Quality or Not" with Gustavo Ayon, Vasquez, Aminu, and Xavier Henry and then talk about trading Draft Picks we haven't even been assigned yet.  Speculation rules.

Michael and I talk about Kaman returning to the team, (NOOOOO!!) How many of our starters would make  good eighth, seventh, or even sixth men on a decent squad, and then review Dealer Dell's trades (Bayless, Thornton, Aminu, Collison) and see if there are any lingering regrets.

Then, in the biggest shocker of the month, Michael predicts a win for the Hornets.  Crazy cat.
