Protected Players for 2019 Season: Sick x 973, Godddof2k, oLARRY*
With a strong 8-6 record regular season record, good for 5th in the NBA 2K League, Cavs Legion GC looked like a strong title contender during the regular season and that carried over into the playoffs. A strong offensive squad led on that end by leading scorer Hood, who finished 3rd in the league with an average of 29.2 PPG, Cavs Legion made it all the way to the Semi-Finals of the NBA 2K League playoffs where they lost to eventual NBA 2K League champions Knicks Gaming. Cavs Legion flashed incredible potential on both ends and will be a team to keep an eye on for the 2019 season.
Returning to Cavs Legion for the 2019 season will be some familiar as well as new faces. Floor general Sick x 973 as well as dominant low post presence Godddof2k were retained by the team and will be back for Year 2. In a huge post-expansion draft trade, Cavs acquired oLARRY from T-Wolves in exchange for Year 1 Leading scorer Hood.
