The Cleveland Cavaliers are one of the most inconsistent teams in the NBA this season.
As of now, the Cavaliers have a 5-6 record, as they are the 10th seed in the Eastern Conference.
One of the few good things about the Cavs this season is the performance of Caris LeVert.
LeVert has shown great improvement this season, and the reason is that he has finally found his role with the Cavaliers.
LeVert has completely committed to becoming the sixth man for the Cavaliers, and he eyes to win the NBA’s Sixth Man of the Year award, as revealed via Chris Fedor on Twitter.
“Of course, I want to win it,” LeVert said.
#Cavs have made a commitment to try to keep Caris LeVert’s role from fluctuating the way it did last season. He is this team’s sixth man and he has his sights on winning Sixth Man of the Yearhttps://t.co/NoUfFkNEYw

Caris LeVert may have played 74 games for the Cleveland Cavaliers last season, but he averaged just 12.1 points, 3.8 rebounds, and 3.9 assists per game.
A key reason behind LeVert’s low numbers was a lack of clarity about his role on the team, as he started in 30 games, but remained on the bench for the remainder.
However, this season, LeVert and the Cavaliers have seemingly agreed to make the 29-year-old a sixth man.
In the first 10 games of the season, LeVert has played all but one game from the bench.
The results have been impressive, as LeVert is averaging 18.8 points, 4.7 rebounds, and 4.1 assists per game for the Cavaliers.
With LeVert finding the perfect role on the Cavaliers, he can now focus on helping the team win games.
After all, the Cavaliers are in desperate need of putting together a winning streak if they want to make a comeback in the regular season.
