Good evening, Mr. and Mrs. America and all the ships at sea! Friend and foe alike call me “Optimist” – and whichever category you fall into, you’ve stumbled straight into the sports horn-of-plenty we like to call NEWS … AROUND … THE … LEAGUE.

Last week I wrote about the “sports confluence”: NFL and college football, MLB playoffs and, of course, Cleveland Cavaliers basketball – all in perfect alignment. But that shan’t be the case this weekend. And you can blame the NBA’s schedulemakers for this fakakta arrangement.

There’s one thing that every NBA player has in common – from superstars to end-of-the-bench guys: At one point, they were all rookies. They’ve all picked up the donuts. They’ve all gone into the arena seats to recover the basketballs that the veterans punted up there.

But not all rookies go through their freshman season the same way. Some came to a team with established vets; some were forced to start right away. And this season, will take a look back – or take a current look – at some of the current Cavaliers rookie seasons.
