Final 2015 Player Power Rankings for the Cleveland Cavaliers

December 30th, 2015 by Greg Swartz Leave a reply »
Much has changed since we last checked in on the Cleveland Cavaliers Power Rankings in late November.

At that point, both Kyrie Irving and Iman Shumpert were left off the list, as both had yet to make their season debuts. Matthew Dellavedova and Tristan Thompson had climbed into the top four, and (not) shockingly, LeBron James held the top spot.

Since that time, the Cavaliers have slowly returned a complete, healthy roster. On any given night, the rotation may go 10 or 11 players deep while coach David Blatt tries to figure out his best combinations.

Sitting at 20-9 overall, the Cavs still lead the resurgent Eastern Conference thanks to a sparkling 13-1 home record. To this point, they've played the NBA's seventh-easiest schedule as well. Looking ahead, Cleveland has a brutal January that includes a six-game road trip and home meetings against the Golden State Warriors and San Antonio Spurs.

For clarification, these rankings are based on players' performances from this season only, and not a reflection of their overall career or talent level.
