Nance Jr. staying home with Cavs, signs 4-year extension | AP sports

A new superstar, a new head coach, and a victory for the new-look Raptors to open what's been one of the most-anticipated National Basketball Association regular seasons for Toronto in awhile. "I think I remember that Miami a couple of years ago (after James left) came out of the gates kind of like gangbusters, moving the ball and playing faster and doing all this stuff they wanted to do".

James, a four-time MVP, averaged 27.5 points last season, so Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue said he feels that he knows what is required. "I've learned a lot of leadership tendencies and qualities in watching him", he adds, including being "vocal and leading by example and being punctual".

Most, if not all of our coverage this offseason has been focused on the Los Angeles Lakers, and LeBron James' new team.

It wasn't the prettiest of victories but it did get the season started on the right foot and the Raptors have known all along that it's going to be a time-consuming process to get up to full speed.

Nance is expected to share the role of starting center Tristan Thompson, who will likely be used against the bigger centers. For instance, Lowe says that the Cavs would have flipped their No. 8 pick in the 2018 NBA Draft in a deal for Charlotte's Kemba Walker, per his league sources.

Realistically, however, expectations have been reset, and Love concedes that a playoff berth, which would require a top eight finish in the Eastern Conference, should qualify as a successful season. "That's the expectation of the experts". For us, we're a play-off team.

"The only thing I didn't want was I didn't want to be with a team that was going to tank or not be competitive", Love said. The 27-year-old missed his first three shots before Lowry gave up an easy basket for a pass to the trailing Leonard four minutes into the game.

Can he take a step forward?

"I haven't come up with the word for it yet", said Nance, wearing a T-shirt with "HOME" on the front.

"I'm very fortunate and very happy where I am now in my 11th year". They're not even expecting us to make the playoffs.
