The offseason couldn't have come soon enough for the Cleveland Cavaliers, as they struggled through a season mirrored in injury, youthful mistakes and poor defense.
If the Cavaliers truly want to make the jump from pretender to contender, there are some very key issues that must be addressed before the start of next season.
Some may be obvious, while some may require a little more thought and work.
Even with such a porous season, the Cavaliers have a chance to be a very, very good team in the not-so-distant future. With the right amount of work put into this offseason by players and front office personnel alike, the Cavs could make a huge jump in the Eastern Conference next season.
