How bad must it be to be Lebron's teammate? First Kyrie asks to be traded, and now Rose is contemplating retirement from a sprained ankle.

This could be big. Even w/Isaiah back, who is their backup? Calderon?

Will the King complain about the need for a backup PG again like last year  :P

After the injury, not much to be a fan about with Rose. No feelings either way, except...I'd rather he stays with them and uses up the roster spot as 3rd string PG. if he could handle just being along for the ride, the Cavs are less likely to find a more competent player to fill his spot.  Since LBJ handles the ball, any 3 and D guard would be an improvement.

Wade at least is handling the bench and will rack up points every 4-5 games at least, but they'd be better off without him as well.

Yeah the cavs managed their team like a fan duel lineup and the pieces just don't fit

Can't see him leaving $70 million from Adidas on the table.  He's always seemed like an emotional dude despite his resting puppy face.  I'm sure he'll be back; as others have said, this is probably just another example of someone disgruntled in CLE.
