But also keep in mind that this is not a Cavs season that is just about this year. Cleveland is still laying the foundation for what’s to come next year and the year after that and for every season the team is building around Evan Mobley. My personal term for this is a ‘data collection’ year – meaning Cleveland is still going to spend this year trying to get better, but also finding out as much as possible about everyone on the team.
Considering Evan Mobley’s play so far, revisit Mirin Fader’s profile of him from the Ringer a few months back
