LeBron James wasn't kidding when he said he will literally trade everyone when they do not impress him.

No idea who's pushing the buttons there, but they've largely done well both short- and long-term.  Did not see anything remotely close to this overhaulageddon coming.

One of Love or Thompson has to be gone by the end of the deadline too, I think.  Just blow it all up!

Ooh, I like George Hill and Rodney Hood next to LeBron. Those are good pickups.

C'mon Cleveland, I dare you to trade LeBron to San Antonio for Kawhi.

Some of these trades help the cavs a little. However, who is the Cavs 3rd best player right now? George Hill? That is a far cry from their big 3 the last year and Love is pretty clearly their second best player and only all-star level talent behind Lebron. They are kind of like last years Thunder now.

I actually think Cleveland got better with these trades. I am worried.


Hey Jaylen. I lost 519 Tommy Points betting on you guys and lost

Cavs just got younger to soften the blow when James leaves.

I do not see how they can put together a brand new team in a few weeks.

Boston adds Monroe and Hayward (yes...I do think he is coming back)...the Cavs aren't getting by them nor the Raps

PG: George Hill, Jordan Clarkson
SG: Rodney Hood, JR Smith
SF: LeBron James,
PF: Kevin Love, Larry Nance
 C: Tristan Thompson,

Deep bench: Richard Jefferson, Jeff Green (forgot him), Kyle Korver, Ante Zizic, Jose Calderon

That is a good 8 man rotation. A three man bench with a lead guard, a wing and a big man. Some spot minutes available for the other guys.

That can work. That can put Cleveland back in the mix with the Celtics and Raptors.

Yeah I agree with your take on it.  Although I like Hill and even Clarkson a bit, those guys aren't all star players that help you win NBA titles.  No matter how Cleveland shuffles the deck chairs they are still missing Kyrie Irving at crunch time.  I take Kyrie over all those guys put together.  If the Cavs make it to the finals this year it is going to be on the back of Lebron and Love.  Those two are going to have to literally take over every game.

No idea who's pushing the buttons there, but they've largely done well both short- and long-term.  Did not see anything remotely close to this overhaulageddon coming.

The Lakers trade is definitely a bad trade. They took on long term contract (nobody wanted Clarkson all season) and gave up a first round pick. They also opened up the chance for the Lakers to get their best player this offseason (George and Lebron now possible there). That is pretty objectively awful all for Nance (they could have just bought out IT). Cavs fans were livid with that trade.

The Hood, Hill trade is definitely a good trade.

I haven't been as high on Wade as most, but given he is Lebron's best friend and could provide some bench scoring in playoffs, that seems bad for a second round pick to dump.
