IT’s offense looking good. Looks like last year’s IT today.

Unfortunately for the Cavs, that’s not going to help their God-awful D, and IT only makes their perimeter D that much worse.

I think someone like DJ would definitely help their D and rebounding, but that still wouldn’t do crap for their lackluster perimeter D.

Good for IT. He's finally going to get his well deserved pay day if he keeps this up.

Some team will throw some cash at him. Maybe the Kings if they can send out some of those really bad contracts they signed players to this year.

Yeah, that looks like a Lebron James who is already looking towards next year.

Am I petty for being happy that Lebron won't get his 30,000th point at home?

Cavs will be fine, I'm not going to get happy yet! Seen this movie before. I want to know why people keep assuming people want the BKN pick with as much value as people think it has? Remember that DA said he tried to trade the BKN picks a few times before and no teams would bite. Maybe people want young players already in the league for their good players, cavs have none of those. I'm sure they will be able to get something for it but it won't be a really good established player. Maybe DJ, he is really good and established but in this league, it's not really that great of a get, especially when looking up at GSW.
It takes me 3hrs to get to Miami and 1hr to get to Orlando... but I *SPIT* on their NBA teams! "Bless God and bless the (Celts)"-Lady GaGa (she said gays but she really meant Celts)

Warriors have like 10 knock down shooters ,  all are 6- 12 inches taller than IT .   So there is nobody for him to stop.   Warrior vs Cavs is 5 on 4 on offense .   IT scor s 30 , he gives up 12 or 14 points in easy jumpers to guys like Curry , Iggy , KT and KD all game .    IT is great on awful shooting team like when he came on Celtics .   Cavs don't need his offense .....they need Bradleys and Smarts to play defense on some people.

Let's not underestimate the prevalence of foolish GMs; seems like, no matter how many bad contracts are regularly handed out, there are always a couple of GMs who don't learn (from their mistakes or the mistakes of others), and instead give in to whatever pressure there is (real or not) to win now—"Hey, look! I just signed a guy who can score 20+ a game! I must be doing my job well!"

Can't write off LeBron, but holy hell are the Cavs bad at defense.

Today's game seems like a new low. The Thunder shot 58% (!)—and almost 47% on threes—and would've easily surpassed 150 points if they'd shot their free throws well.

Yeah, I'm not writing off the LeBrons yet, but this is the worst any LeBron team has looked during the regular season.

LeBron is a diva and probably demands too much power within any organization he's a part of.....but I hope Ainge gives him a call after Game 4 of the Finals.

Yeah, he might come to Boston after we’ve finished our sweep of the Warriors.

Any sane organization should not give him power over their team. Lebron is aging and he should drop his ego before its too late. Learn to play within a system that doesn't revolve around him if he wants to expand his legacy.

We'll tell Lebron to sign with the MLE, and also offer him the bonus services of being coached by Brad Stevens (so total value of the signing is a max contract for LBJ)  :laugh:
