Cedi Osman and Javier Munoz can relate.

Munoz was the understudy to Lin-Manuel Miranda for "Hamilton," finally taking over for the Broadway megastar in July, 2016.

Osman, well, he was an apprentice to LeBron James.

In the run-up to the Cavs' 2018-19 training camp that starts with media day on Sept. 24, cleveland.com is taking a look at each roster player and what might be expected this season if this team is to survive LeBron's departure and make a legitimate run at a playoff spot.

"Hamilton" did just fine at the box office during Munoz's two-year run in the lead role.

The Cavs, most likely, will fall short with Osman instead of James in the near term (they're probably not going to the Finals after four consecutive trips there). But the more Osman soaked up under James in their one year together, the better for him and for the Cavs, now and later.
