Cavs getting blown out by Harden and co.


#1344

Cavs have parted company with Isiah Thomas and D Wade.
IT to Lakers
D Wade ti Miami.


#1345

Thomas has proven to be a whiny little shite the past few weeks. I’d say LeBron made that call


#1346

The Cavs are gone, forget about them. They’ve also traded Jae Crowder and Derrick Rose to Utah, plus Shumpert is going to Sacramento. All they seem to be getting in return is average players and future picks. What a disaster the trade of Kyrie Irving was to Boston. Have they a point guard for the rest of the season?

Jose Calderón


#1348

Jose Calderon :joy::joy:


#1349

Toronto will win the east


#1350

Yeah, LeBron.


#1351

I think you may be right. Celtics have just signed Greg Monroe. They needed a decent centre. Monroe is a short term solution


#1352

George Hill and Clarkson will probably be the point guards


#1353

George Hill is an upgrade on IT for the Cavs. These are all good moves for them, puts them in a position to win a championship than if they made no trades at all.


#1354

They had to do something alright but this won’t get them any closer to winning the championship IMO. They’ve signed their deathknell.


#1355

It does get them closer. George Hill can play good defense, as opposed to IT who is the worst defender in the entire league, and the offensive output doesn’t drop off much. The other players add a bit of dynamism, scoring and youth to the bench, as their second unit has been decrepit to this point. They’ve also created room for 2 players in the upcoming buyout market. And kept the Brooklyn pick.


#1356

Zach Lavine is incredible, dear god.


#1357

Cavs/Celtics tipping off in a few minutes in Boston, first game for the new look Cavs. It’s also Paul Pierce night, his jersey is being retired at half time.


#1358

Real edge to this already, Kirie is pumped, hopefully the new look Cavs can bring it down to the wire


#1359

Lebron showing whos daddy


#1360

Car crash tv. The new look cavs in their first game together today absolutely destroying the celtics. Fans booing but they have to sit there for the pierce ceremony afterwards. Rivers Garnett pierce sitting ashen faced court side.


#1361

A week is a long time in basketball. Is this the real Cavs though?


#1362

That was fantastic from the Cavs, the team looks re-energized and the bench now has bunch scorers who are suited to play off LeBron. Hill brings a lot of physicality too, gives them defense and pick-and-roll scenarios that Thomas couldn’t.
