Fred McLeod joined Andy and Jeff to preview the NBA Finals.

They discussed the Cavs supporting cast and whether it's as bad as the national media seems to think. Fred said this is a better group than 2007 for sure, and he said any team with LeBron James on it is an easy target.

They also discussed whether the Cavs would go small with the rotation and potentially even the starting lineup. Fred mentioned Jeff Green as a potential difference-maker, as well as guys like Cedi Osman or Rodney Hood who may have an opportunity at some point.

They also discussed when we'll get an update on Kevin Love and whether Love could play a big role in the series.
