They won't be replaced...

Of the returning players we've seen in games, no one possesses the skill sets of either Diakite or Key. That said, no one replaced Akil Mitchell. No one replaced Joe Harris. No one replaced Malcolm Brogdon. Or, more specifically, no one individual replaced their specific individual contributions. The teams that followed those players were different. Different players filling different roles, and making their own contributions. It is a tribute to Coach Bennett that he is able to meld a new set of working parts into a new whole nearly every year. Given where the team was in December, last year's effort by Bennett was absolutely brilliant. I don't expect anyone to perform as did Diakite or Key. On the other hand, I think it is still reasonable to expect excellence from this new set of Cavaliers. Go 'Hoos!!!
