The NBA season may be a way off yet but there is one team that everyone has been talking about all summer.

The Cleveland Cavaliers have put together a team that wouldn't really look out of place at the NBA all-star weekend.

They have become the odds on favourite to be there at the very end and eventually crowned the new NBA champions.

There are very few who would bet against them winning it all in the upcoming season but there is one question that everyone is still left asking about the Cavaliers.

What will be there starting line-up when they play host to the New York Knicks in October?

Well thanks to the people at 2k Sports, that question has been answered for us as a video of the Cavaliers players' introductions has now been posted online.

The new NBA Champions?

So who is in the starting lineup for the 'next NBA Champions' you might ask?

Well according to the game, they think the Cavaliers will go with a team consisting of Anderson Varejao at Center.

From there, they predict Dion Waiters at Guard, and Kyrie Irving playing at Point Guard.

New star from the Minnesota Timberwolves Kevin Love is predicted to start at Forward alongside the man who has made the whole of Ohio smile, LeBron James.

This may or may not be the line-up when the Knicks come to the Quicken Loans Arena but if it is, it presents one very intimidating prospect.

A big year for Cleveland

Cleveland had a lot to smile about over the off-season with so many big name sporting superstars making their way to Ohio.

It all started during the NFL Draft when the most talked about Quarterback for years was drafted 22nd overall by the Cleveland Browns in Johnny Manziel.

From then, the Cavaliers took over after convincing long time Cavaliers legend turned enemy, LeBron James to come home after he opted out of his contract with the Miami Heat.

After the addition of LeBron, the Cavaliers were already tipped to be one of the big names in the upcoming season, but that wasn't it.

Kevin Love, Shawn Marion and Mike Miller all joined the Cavaliers who have now earned the Miami Heat's nickname of the team with the big three in James, Irving and Love.

Who knows how the Cavaliers will actually do once the season is up and running and if they will fall short of the Finals or will they do as everyone predicts and win it all? Only time will tell.
