The Cleveland Cavaliers, boasting LeBron James, Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving as the NBA's newest Big Three, are going to be an extremely competitive team throughout the 2014-15 season. At various points during the campaign, they'll even look like prohibitive favorites, though such runs likely won't be sustained.
After all, the Cavs—much like most teams in the Association—will need to overcome a few potential problems if they want to make their dreams of a Larry O'Brien Trophy actually become reality.
Even looking past the money difficulties the team will face down the road—highlighted by Love's inevitably expensive extension and a new contact for Tristan Thompson, who shares an agent (Rich Paul) with LeBron James and will likely be rewarded as such—there are a number of issues that could pop up during the first season of James' return to Cleveland.
Does anything ever go smoothly in professional sports? It usually doesn't, and these Cavs won't be an exception to the hard-and-fast rule.
