The Cavaliers added two exceptional pieces in this past June’s Draft. They plan to keep that tradition going next June. And the one after that.

On Thursday afternoon, the Cavaliers dealt Ramon Sessions and Christian Eyenga to the Lakers – acquiring the Lakers first round pick in 2012 Draft (lottery-protected) as well as forwards Jason Kapono, Luke Walton and cash considerations. Additionally, the Cavaliers received the right to swap their least favorable first round pick in the 2013 Draft with the Lakers.

Over the existence of the franchise, the Cavaliers have been strong at certain positions. But it’s almost irrefutable that the one spot where Cleveland has been blessed with its most success has been the point guard position.

At the all-important lead guard position, the Cavs have boasted All-Stars and franchise icons, record-holders, league leaders and a Rookie of the Year favorite. When it comes to the player often called the offense’s “head of the snake” – the Wine and Gold have had an embarrassment of riches.

The Bucks’ offense was on fire at the Bradley Center on Wednesday night. And Monta Ellis isn’t even in a Milwaukee uniform yet.

Six Bucks scored at least a dozen points and Milwaukee used a 31-point fourth quarter to pull away from the Cavaliers, handing them their second straight defeat – 115-105.

Milwaukee also notched a 34-point second quarter, shot 54 percent from the floor and handed out 38 assists.
