ONE BIG NEED: James mentioned in his essay for Sports Illustrated that he understood it may take some time for the Cavaliers to add the necessary pieces to become a true title contender. One of the biggest pieces they will need to add — now or in the future — is a big, rim-protecting center. The Spurs exploited Miami's lack of a true defensive center in the finals, and the Cavs need one as well. Varejao is a nice defensive player, but hasn't played a full season since 2008-09 and isn't the shot-blocking force that could be needed, especially if Cleveland adds the defensively challenged Love to the frontcourt.
