Areas of strength:
Built, driven to chase championship. Defensively savvy.

Needs work:
Offense lacks creativity, reliant on one guy. Roster was creeky old.

Two stats that matter:
65
-- Number of games the Cavaliers outshot the other team, most in NBA.

+436 -- Varejao's plus/minus ratio, tops among NBA reserves and third in league behind teammate James and Orlando's Dwight Howard.

The Way to Go:
It's LeBron or bust. Without draft picks, without a head coach and with no assurances for its future, Cleveland needs to resign the game's No. 1 free agent or start from scratch. In other words, skip the sign-and-trades; Cavs shouldn't want to have a hand in LBJ's departure.
