The Cleveland Cavaliers returned from the NBA lockout with a loss in their first game of the season Monday. Rookie Kyrie Irving has been getting most of the attention as the Cavs number one draft pick in the off-season. But, he had a disappointing NBA debut, scoring just six points. WKSU commentator Terry Pluto talks to Amanda Rabinowitz about what to expect from the Cavs this season and whether Irving has what it takes to lead the team.

Listener Comments:

Cavs are going to be fun to watch this year, even when they lose. This is going to be an exciting season as we watch Thompson and Irving develop into future stars!
