NBA 2K19: 1989-1990 Cleveland Cavaliers Player Ratings and Roster

Beyond the LeBron James era, this is one of the strongest teams to ever roll through the city of Cleveland.


Wait a minute…you mean to tell me the Cavaliers had a decent team without LeBron James on the roster? Hate to say it, but this squad was not half bad. They finished with a 42-40 record and lost in the first round of the playoffs, but NBA fans get to experience some cool history here. Larry Nance was on this Cavs squad, his son now plays for the Cavs. Steve Kerr, current head coach of the Golden State Warriors, was also a member of the team before his championship runs with the Bulls.
