Open Thread: 2020-21 NBA Playoffs, Bonus: Koby Altman speaks

As a bonus to the playoff open thread, here’s a quick recap/analysis of Koby Altman’s lengthy end of season press conference. Let’s dive into the takeaways…. The most striking overall impression of the Altman presser was his overwhelming positive spin to a terrible 22-50 season that included the loss of the Cavs’ most talented prospect Kevin Porter Jr., and the inability for Altman to successfully handle two of the grizzled veterans on the team, Andre Drummond and Kevin Love. Altman’s optimism was frankly borderline nauseating and patronizing.

Cavs' Koby Altman on Kevin Love: 'We Want Him to be Here'

Cleveland Cavaliers general manager Koby Altman said Saturday that the Cavs want veteran big man Kevin Love on the team next season and beyond. According to the Associated Press (h/t NBC Sports), Altman said: "We want him to be here. We signed him to an extension for that reason, to be here when we want to make that next step. And so we're going to hopefully rely on him heavily next year after a significant summer."
