It sure looks like the Cavs are about to trade for Kevin Love (when they can in a couple weeks). And if they do, Nate Silver is now projecting them to go 65-17 next year.

Silver:

Either way, the trade should make Cleveland a championship contender. Before adding Love, it projected to a win total in the low-to-mid 50s. A team like that will win the NBA title less than 5 percent of the time. By comparison, a team with 60 regular season wins will win the title about 20 percent of the time, and a 65-win team will win the title about 60 percent of the time.

If that happens, LeBron James should win the ‘GM of the Year’ award.
