Cavaliers 2013-2014 Pre-season schedule brings excitement for players and fans

As the Cavs bulk up with several off-season acquisitions, fans and players alike welcome the new, yet old Mike Brown-era of basketball back to the shores of the Northcoast.

With the summer development league already in session, the Cavs and the folks in the front office are peering into the crystal ball of NBA possibilities with their fingers and their toes crossed.

Will Mike Brown's style of defense first work out with a new corp of young players who are mostly known for their offensive prowess? Will Kyrie Irving improve on his raw, undeveloped talent with the assistance of the

veteran players who now litter the Cav's roster? Will the same apply to Dion Waiters ? Will either of the two aforementioned players stay health throughout the season? It has yet to be seen from either of them. Is LeBron really interested in returning to Cleveland? Is Cleveland and her fans even interested in Mr. James coming back ? Many questions abound and the answers certainly don't appear to be easily answered either.

As we approach the start of another NBA season, the Cavs allow us a peek at the 2013-2014 pre-season schedule.
