    Fun Facts for the season

    -After signing a five-year, $20M contact that included a team option for the fifth season before the start of the 2019-20 season, John Beilein became the shortest tenured coach since the 2004 season and is tied for the third shortest coaching stint since the 1990 season after only lasting 54 games before he and the team decided to part ways (Beilein and the organization negotiated a settlement that remains undisclosed)

    -The Cavs have not had a winning season without LeBron James since the 1997-98 season and have not gotten out of the first round of the playoffs without LeBron since the 1992-93 season when they lost to Michael Jordan’s Bulls in the Eastern Conference Semifinals

    -The Cavs had three bigs who finished inside the top-100 in terms of total value in 8/9-cat leagues while they finished with four bigs who produced standard league value on the season: Andre Drummond, Kevin Love, Larry Nance Jr. and Tristan Thompson

    -Collin Sexton turned around his season from a fantasy perspective after the All-Star break, producing 4th/7th round per-game value in 11 games while he was on track to produce 8th/11th round per-game value in 54 games prior to the break

    -The Cavs have three players on their roster whose fathers played in the NBA: Kevin Love, Darius Garland and Larry Nance Jr. (Larry Nance Sr. played for the Cavs from 1988-1994)
