Another reason to dislike LeBron
I like the trade. A lot. Plus minus when LBJ wasn’t on the floor during the finals was absurd. Need someone else who can carry a team. If they pull that trade off, the Cavs offseasons is just getting started. Expect them to deal Love ,JR and Korver for another star and most likely a defense first 3PT specialist like Andre Roberson or Danny Green. Cap room relief would allow them a lot more flexibility next off season when LBJ bails on them or the ability to resign George.
I still think Love could be dealt to the Celtics for a number of guys. I could see a Love, JR, Korver and draft picks for a Jae Crowder and Avery Bradley/Marcus Smart too.
Cavs learned they need to get more athletic to be able to compete with GSW. Putting 3 or 4 guys that are 6’8 on the floor all at once could accomplish that.
@Kcmatt7 Oooh. Good trade here. Covington, Okafor, Justin Anderson and Stauskas for Love.
Philly starting lineup:
- Henderson (Hopefully B-Mac instead)
Makes both teams much better. Covington gives Cavs great D. Okafor gives them some actual offense down low and a solid pick and roll guy. Anderson is good D off the bench. And Stauskas might be able to actually hit a 3 if he is as open as LBJ and PG would get him.
They could easily throw Love in to sweeten the pot for PG, but only if Thadeus Young comes with PG and Hill.
Kryie, J.R., 2 First Round Picks and Love for Gobert, PG, GH and Thadeus Young.
Sweeten the Pot with Korver or Shumpert?
Cavs Starting Lineup:
I just expect the Cavs to land PG and another really long defensive player. I kind of expect the finals this year to be the best O ever vs. The best D ever.
If they can land another 6’8 wing, how do you score against CLE?
@Kcmatt7 Really just keep coming back to this Celtics trade. If Hayward spurns the Celtics, they would be willing to make that trade I think.
Clippers sounds good too…
Love and JR for Deandre Jordan and Mbah a Moute.
That D is sick. Pick and roll LBJ and DJ. Jeeeeeeze
Why not build around Kyrie? LBJ and Love for PG and DJ in 3 way trade. Then get athletic 3 and D for first rounder.
- Green / Roberson
So help me out here, as I’m not an NBA guy. Meaning my knowledge is low.
Does this say LeBron has a problem with KI?
It just means that anytime LeBron is involved, everyone around him is dispensible, just another asset, even the other stars. I have no idea if he has a personality problem with him.
@approxinfinity Well that blew up in my face… Who knew you could get PG for a bag of smashed crackers?
Also, I’m confident LBJ has a no trade clause. He has CLE by the balls and will use them as he pleases…
And CLE should be greatful. Is he not the reason they won their first championship?
