"LeBron Love Kyrie and Kyrie Love Bron"


  

          


https://sports.yahoo.com/news/sources--cavaliers-have-agreement-to-acquire-kevin-love--who-commits-to-staying-in-cleveland-054657392.html

somebody GOTTA be mad about this.


****WARNING****


you favorite PG better win a title before mine.


no, but seriously, after years of watching Grant botch all them top 5 picks and having Gee and Earl Clark in that corner, Kyrie and the Cavs deserve this. i'm dead serious. they DESERVE this.

all i wanted was Klay and Drummond and Dion traded. Now I'm gettin Bron and my dogg Love and Dion coming off the bench, where he will shine.

Don't let nobody tell you God don't be helpin'. He absolutely does.

HE. BE. HELPIN!

Aug 07th 2014

      why are people so in love with thad young?
Aug 07th 2014

Aug 07th 2014

Aug 07th 2014
13
      ...for what? lol
Aug 07th 2014
19
      Not particularly excited about The Better Version of LJ
Aug 07th 2014
29
           You should be excited. The kid's got game.
Aug 07th 2014
43
           No snark, but what about last year made you high on AB?
Aug 07th 2014
55
                Ignore last season. He was coming off surgery.
Aug 07th 2014
59
                the Mike Brown factor can not also be ignored
Aug 07th 2014
68
                RE: Ignore last season. He was coming off surgery.
Aug 07th 2014
199
                Nothing he did last year, but his skillset and body are fantastic.
Aug 07th 2014
69
                     Interesting
Aug 07th 2014
82
           I was excited to see what he was gonna do this year
Aug 07th 2014
52
                Yep, it's remembered.
Aug 07th 2014

Nice
Aug 07th 2014
93
So ring or bust, right?
Aug 07th 2014
3
every year
Aug 07th 2014
7
They aren't winning a ring this year
Aug 07th 2014
8
speak on it.
Aug 07th 2014
10
eventually, but not now IMO
Aug 07th 2014
22
By 2016, yes
Aug 07th 2014
27
what's going to change between now and 2016?
Aug 07th 2014
33
      the Heat took a year to get it together too
Aug 07th 2014
35
      They were fine until somebody starting having issues in the 4th quarter....
Aug 07th 2014
41
      they weren't fine, you weren't paying attention
Aug 07th 2014
49
           they won 58 games, they lost a total of 3 games the first 3 rounds...
Aug 07th 2014
54
           yah. the issues were mainly in the 1st half of that season
Aug 07th 2014
79
           they had a worse record in the 2nd half.
Aug 07th 2014
124
                doesn't speak to whether they were more in sync or not
Aug 07th 2014
128
                     true, they lost to some good teams
Aug 07th 2014
144
           we get it, you have an agenda
Aug 07th 2014
111
                The Spurs core is a year older, after a long postseason run 2 years...
Aug 07th 2014
                     and how many times did we say the celtics were old and done?
Aug 07th 2014
140
           no, Truth is absolutely correct
Aug 07th 2014
56
                shit, Doc TALKING ABOUT IT...
Aug 07th 2014
65
                even SouthEuclidMan admits it.
Aug 07th 2014
109
                     you gobbled a L for every chip bron won
Aug 07th 2014
125
                          I have always been good with him staying gone
Aug 07th 2014
134
                               i'm eating a bowl of shit because Lebron is saving Kyrie legacy?
Aug 07th 2014
143
                                    lol @ him saving Kyrie's legacy
Aug 07th 2014
147
                                         he said the opposite actually.....
Aug 07th 2014
153
                                         LMMFAO
Aug 07th 2014
166
                                         nobody is eating more shyt than the city of cleveland
Aug 07th 2014
214
                                              shut your monkey ass up, Toine
Aug 07th 2014
221
                                              the spin these dudes trying put on this is hilarious
Aug 07th 2014
246
                                                   ain't no spin, dogg.
Aug 07th 2014
252
                                                        the pain and hurt made you abandon your team
Aug 07th 2014
272
                                                             nope.
Aug 07th 2014
278
                                                             lol dude shouldve just kept quiet and came back on the humble
Aug 07th 2014
325
                                                                  nice reacharound there, Toine
Aug 08th 2014
348
                were you guys paying attention in the regular season?
Aug 07th 2014
116
                I assumed that the Finals was the point of discussion here
Aug 07th 2014
129
                     I think you have to discuss both when discussing a new team
Aug 07th 2014
149
                          Hmm....
Aug 07th 2014
167
                               I agree they had no excuses
Aug 07th 2014
188
                spot on... lol
Aug 07th 2014
201
                IMO there were gelling issues as late as 2012
Aug 07th 2014
239
                The "LeBron almost choked in '13" narrative is fauly as hell
Aug 07th 2014
244
                box scores. that dude was straight up sitting on the court in game 6
Aug 07th 2014
250
                     I did.
Aug 07th 2014
261
                          again with the box scores.
Aug 07th 2014
269
                               Watched the game. Saw him score 15 points and that three
Aug 07th 2014
275
                                    I'm not the one fiercely defending a widely accepted near-choke
Aug 07th 2014
279
                                         LOL @ "widely accepted"
Aug 07th 2014
283
                                              literally everyone except LeBronies say 'if not for Ray Allen...'
Aug 07th 2014
287
                                                   "Ray Allen hit the biggest shot" is a lot different than...
Aug 07th 2014
290
                                                        Semantics. It's the same shit.
Aug 07th 2014
294
                                                             Denial and anger. It's the same shit.
Aug 07th 2014
295
                                                                  No, that is projection. You are saying I'm mad
Aug 07th 2014
297
                THANK YOU.
Aug 07th 2014
314
      This, and lmao @truth still holding onto Bron chokes agenda
Aug 07th 2014
96
           lolz. dude is scavenging hard w/ these struggle gendas.
Aug 07th 2014
131
           he simultaneously thinks Love is shit
Aug 07th 2014
161
      It's basically a brand new team
Aug 07th 2014
36
           The Celtics did...
Aug 07th 2014
47
                It's still possible, but it's not a problem unless
Aug 07th 2014
53
                     the celts also featured 3 guys who were more than ready
Aug 07th 2014
157
obviously
Aug 07th 2014
30
Finals or bust, definitely ring or bust within two years (as in next yea...
Aug 07th 2014

How's Dion coming off the bench?
Aug 07th 2014
11
If they're the Expendables, he's Dolph Lundgren.
Aug 07th 2014
44
C'mon, you heard about Bron calling him & telling him to "be ready".
Aug 07th 2014
75
Blatt won't make it through two practices before making him 6th man
Aug 07th 2014
46
      Mike Miller's limbs will implode before our eyes if he's starting.
Aug 07th 2014
73
           starting means starting, not 35 minutes.
Aug 07th 2014
78
                He hasn't played more than 20 mins or started 20 games since 2010
Aug 07th 2014
80
                     i'm good no matter what, dude. this worked out better than i dreamed.
Aug 07th 2014
90
                          i know you partying like shit, fam. lolz. best case scenario for you.
Aug 07th 2014
135
                               i ain't even partying yet. i'm just HAPPY.
Aug 07th 2014
168
Love re-signed already?
Aug 07th 2014
12
i don't get why he's going for the absolute max
Aug 07th 2014
15
RE: i don't get why he's going for the absolute max
Aug 07th 2014
20
yeah, probably, i mean he and irving getting the max makes sense
Aug 07th 2014
162
He wants that long term guaranteed money now, that PG injury got...
Aug 07th 2014
16
      He white
Aug 07th 2014
32
           He bangs his body around for rebounds and gets hurt a lot.
Aug 07th 2014
98
I can only wish for the best.
Aug 07th 2014
14
Just stop Doc
Aug 07th 2014
26
lol, if you think I'm going to follow the crowd
Aug 07th 2014
42
      Why are you saying this like it's a bad thing?
Aug 07th 2014
48
      Doc, any team Bron is on is Bron's team.
Aug 07th 2014
71
           yeah, I'm ignoring that.
Aug 07th 2014
72
                Grade A Cuban B. I can respect that
Aug 07th 2014
99
                C'mon, that's just silly. It's not a slight to Kyrie.
Aug 07th 2014
127
                     he is, I just don't care about it beyond schadenfreude for the detractor...
Aug 07th 2014
139
by this logic, it was WADE'S TEAM all along
Aug 07th 2014
189
      well, it's Wade's Team now. LOL
Aug 07th 2014
268
           Doc, you know I love you
Aug 07th 2014
298
                ok, go find O_E's post about that series.
Aug 07th 2014
302
                     calling it old isn't pretending it didn't happen
Aug 07th 2014
306
Western Conference PFs must be sad to see Minny's turnstile head East
Aug 07th 2014
17
Love about to have stats AND rings over your boy. You very mad
Aug 07th 2014
101
      I'm not convinced Kevin Love is better than Chris Bosh
Aug 07th 2014
206
Happy for CLE, bring it on assholes
Aug 07th 2014
18
I can't wait.
Aug 07th 2014

nah, Luke, Sofia home NOW...ROCK N' ROLL OPRAH!!!
Aug 07th 2014
34
Rather my Sixers face Lebron Love in 2-3 years then Lebron Wiggins...
Aug 07th 2014
23
so will those Wiggins rookie cards in a Cavs uni be collector's items?
Aug 07th 2014
25
Love better than Randle + Booz + Hill + Sacre (lol) combined
Aug 07th 2014
31
Bad move for the Cavs IMO
Aug 07th 2014
28
solid hate, good work.
Aug 07th 2014
37
Lol, hate? I WANT to see em do good
Aug 07th 2014
115
      pretty much
Aug 07th 2014
118
      Exactly
Aug 07th 2014
180
      I was legitimately complimenting you
Aug 07th 2014
160
           Lol, my bad bro
Aug 07th 2014
163
agreed
Aug 07th 2014
45
No Excuses 2015!
Aug 07th 2014
38
This is basically a downgraded Heat team
Aug 07th 2014
39
lol
Aug 07th 2014
51
Welcome Andrew Wiggins and (maybe) Anthony Bennett
Aug 07th 2014
40
I'm on board.
Aug 07th 2014
50
RE: I'm on board.
Aug 07th 2014
57
Oh, unquestionably.
Aug 07th 2014
66
What changed?
Aug 07th 2014
58
Reality changed.
Aug 07th 2014
63
pretty much where I am with it.
Aug 07th 2014
      No one wants to be *that* fan-- the "If Only" Fan.
Aug 07th 2014
74
           yeah. I don't think people actually watched the Kyrie Cavs
Aug 07th 2014
86
                If they get a goon who can goon it up for 15 minutes per game?
Aug 07th 2014
119
                     Pretty much.
Aug 07th 2014
141
Hmmmm...
Aug 07th 2014
64
must see tv. that offense will hum.
Aug 07th 2014
77
As many props as Masai got for getting role players back from NY
Aug 07th 2014
61
yeah Flip played hardball and stood his ground, there was all this talk....
Aug 07th 2014
91
I haven't been impressed with either of his drafts so far
Aug 07th 2014
97
Well, all we have are question marks so far
Aug 07th 2014
92
They are in a great position given the circumstances
Aug 07th 2014
110
Eh, Flip simply backed into this one.
Aug 07th 2014
105
*bathing in desperate manufactured narratives and agenda reprisal fear*
Aug 07th 2014
62
Will this be what brings Coolidge and Basa together?
Aug 07th 2014
67
If Russy, Love, Jordan, Kyle and LaVine didn't...nothing will.
Aug 07th 2014
102
So Uncle Drew, Wes, Lebron's Old Man Character and Maya Moore
Aug 07th 2014
70
Undeniably.
Aug 07th 2014
76
And what does this mean for Tristan?
Aug 07th 2014
81
that extension's gonna hurt them.
Aug 07th 2014
84
Who cares? Neither Dion nor Tristan will be a Cav in two years
Aug 07th 2014
85
      So they're gonna pay him more than he's worth & hope somebody...
Aug 07th 2014
114
           lemme try this again...
Aug 07th 2014
120
           They aren't going to pay him, period.

The real winner here: NBA2K15 players.
Aug 07th 2014
87
Love is gonna have a highlight reel of just outlets this season
Aug 07th 2014
88
4 predictions for next season
Aug 07th 2014
89
Why didn't the Cavs wait & sign Love next summer?
Aug 07th 2014
94
No money.
Aug 07th 2014
103
I don't believe they could afford him
Aug 07th 2014
106
with what? there's a salary cap, dude.
Aug 07th 2014
107
I wasn't clear on their cap situation.
Aug 07th 2014
172
      the league's projecting a cap of about $68M for next yr
Aug 07th 2014
174
lol, what? with what money? and minnie wasnt gonna find a taker?
Aug 07th 2014
164
So it's okay when YOU construct a super team?
Aug 07th 2014
95
Blue collar lunch pail attitude
Aug 07th 2014
100
Gilbert is smartly playing the background on all of this
Aug 07th 2014
104
right, lol...
Aug 07th 2014
108
DAT CLOAK
Aug 07th 2014
112
the irony of this is not lost on me
Aug 07th 2014
113
signed a guy as an FA, traded two No. 1 overalls
Aug 07th 2014
165
No, probably not. With that said...
Aug 07th 2014
209
      you seem too angry to think straight but this is completely different
Aug 07th 2014
218
      oh no doubt he is a scumbag and i root for him to fail
Aug 07th 2014
329
Yeah, fuck Gilbert in the eye socket
Aug 07th 2014
169
So they are basically a younger Miami: couple superstars,no depth
Aug 07th 2014
117
FEELINGS!
Aug 07th 2014
121
If Rosey is good this year me and you will be at war fam
Aug 07th 2014
126
nothing more than FEELINGS!!
Aug 07th 2014
176
minus the 2 established players that got their teams to the playoffs...
Aug 07th 2014
122
      right, lol
Aug 07th 2014
130
      plus a miniscus, elite FT shooting in close games, outside shooting
Aug 07th 2014
133
      yea this shit is win win for bron really
Aug 07th 2014
137
           good point, lol
Aug 07th 2014
142
           lol... no, it's not gonna work like that.
Aug 07th 2014
156
           Basically. Bron out there look like he doing charity work.
Aug 07th 2014
158
           Regardless of who's on the squad
Aug 07th 2014
171
           MMMM HMMMMM, and y'all gotta live with it cuz it's true
Aug 07th 2014
178
                lol
Aug 07th 2014
191
btw this thread is a testament to how much Bron moves the needle
Aug 07th 2014
132
nope, it's about the Love deal becoming OFFICIAL AKA Woj said so
Aug 07th 2014
136
clearly its the biggest story in the upcoming NBA season and will be...
Aug 07th 2014
138
I wouldn't give him the credit as much as the agendanites
Aug 07th 2014
145
True. Also, the NBA season ended almost 2 months ago.
Aug 07th 2014
146
How disappointed you think Wiggins is right now? Lol
Aug 07th 2014
148
It would be funny if Minnesota made the playoffs this year
Aug 07th 2014
150
Sheeeit, he's taking notes from Kevin Love right now.
Aug 07th 2014
151
Noted

On the offensive end, Love laps Bosh handily.

Aug 07th 2014

I was looking forward to Thad Young.

Unless AB is going to be shipped off in a separate trade.

Either way, I'm not mad at getting Wiggins. Only folks mad at this will be Cleveland fans, for whatever reason.

bennett and young are both undersized 4s with overrated shooting ability
not sure what thad contract situation is but i'm not sure why the sixers would dump him only to get back a redundant (maybe worse) player

Only problem with trading with the Sixers is you know they're going to want multiple first round picks, and you know Flip will probably do it.

59. "Ignore last season. He was coming off surgery."
In response to Reply # 55


  

          

He was a raw prospect WITHOUT the surgery.

He shoots very well for a guy his size, he moves/jumps very well for a guy his size, his handles should be better than most his size. He doesn't defend (my huge knock against him at the time), but offensively, he has undeniable skills. They just need time.

Especially considering he missed the summer due to surgery and once he was "healthy" he came in out of shape.

that even Tristan Thompson regressed last season is no accident. so a raw rookie with actual NBA skills, drafted too high, coming off surgery in a team where inbound passes are like pulling teeth, you got the Lost Member of Onyx settling for long 2s when he had the 3 open, Earl Clark launching bricks, Andrew Bynum not caring about basketball, and Dion standing around like the Drew Bledsoe statue in Gillette Stadium when he doesn't have the ball until Andrew Delladevova yells at him where to go was pretty much doomed.

I don't get the "for his size" thing. he was fat last year so maybe that's it, but he's only 6'7''

Needs a better work ethic, but that can be learned with being a professional.

It's not like he's Michael Beasley, just immature. He's 6'8, great hands, feet, 3 pt range, athleticism, and long ass Elton Brand arms.

111. "we get it, you have an agenda"
In response to Reply # 54


  

          

but most teams that build the way they are have to get it together for a season before making a real run at the championship. the 08 celtics are the exception. the cavs certainly should be considered ONE of the favorites. but over a spurs team that JUST won, gels better than everyone, and has easily the best organization in the league? nah dude, spurs are the favorites until we see how everyone else plays.

regarding the 2010 heat run in the eastern playoffs:

a) it's the east.

b) every favorite should destroy the first 2 rounds. doesn't always happen, but they should. the only surprising result was them killing the bulls.

c) you're forgetting they were expected to win more than 58 games. people predicting 70+ wins were being unreasonable, but 60-something was perfectly within reach. let's not act like people weren't disappointed by the regular season. we all remember it.

"The Spurs core is a year older, after a long postseason run 2 years..."


          

in a row who knows what they have left in the tank. The wheels have to come off at some point.

Unless Rose can really play at a near-MVP level all season the Cavs won't have any competition in the east.

The window for them is open now. The Love trade is a win-now move. If the don't win Lebron opts out and holds the entire league hostage all over again.

and their role players are actually pretty young. the point is every team has more "ifs" than the spurs. that's kinda the deal with being the favorite.

i agree they're coming out of the east. that doesn't mean they're prepared for the West winner yet, whoever that may be. we'll have to see.

1. Bron isn't leaving or even testing free agency again. He'll be roasted even more than before if he does. He's just getting a deal under the new CBA.

2. lol. you mean if they don't win in 2 years? i've already said they need to win one by 2016. but when a new team doesn't win the year they were assembled it shouldn't be considered the end of the world (provided they don't COMPLETELY flame out like the D12 Lakers).

3. since you're not high on love and like to harp on his lack of playoff experience, how can you declare them the favorites? the spurs have all the playoff experience in the world and you think a NEW team with kevin love should be favored over them? that's inconsistent, no?

and we won't allow this "truth" to be obscured (like so many do)

there weren't "gelling" issues in 2011. there was someone completely disappearing, just like there was the year prior. and this time around, his teammates couldn't be blamed

the same shit almost happened in 2013. but Ray Allen, DayQuil missing freethrows, and Popovich being a dumbass allowed that to pass.

2012 ended the "agenda", talking about what happened all those other years in Miami is just being truthful.

2011 - choke
2012 - un-choke
2013 - near-choke (hello Ray)
2014 - Fall of an Empire (and note in the games LeBron could contribute for the duration, he made sure the overall numbers were within his usual; D-Wade's health gamble turned out to be an ass bet, amnestying Mike Miller was dumb, Bosh and Cole tried, Chalmers, Battier, Ray Allen, Beasley, etc. were non-factors)

I'm good after 2011 and 2013 validated my "agenda" at this point

I only came back to watch shameless eaters of dick like yourself take a break from the dick eating to eat from the giant bowl of shit LeBron created by coming back to play in Cleveland with Gilbert with each passing game. not to mention that same bowl of shit created when jabronis said Kyrie was gonna be gone when the opportunity arose.

if I didn't come back to laugh at that last Finals L in the middle of all that Jordan comparing bullshit, I wasn't coming back unless the impossible happened.

you on the other hand, gotta eat that bowl of shit, SouthEuclidMan.

that never, ever, EVER factored in the eyes of LeBronies
this new "LeBron saves them all" shit is laughable

you (and the rest of the LeBronies) are eating a giant bowl of shit because he did exactly what you said he would never do again.

you can not flip this no matter how much you try.

I'm happy because Kyrie will likely benefit, but that's about it. I'm not invested in a non-GOAT being GOAT like you guys are. I saw the GOAT play in a Bulls uniform just like everyone else did.

>he was always open. he said it was possible "later on in his

yeah, he might have said it. none of the LeBronies here actually said it/believed it. Well, except Vex and Vee, who are exempt from the bowl of shit. Go look at his poll/post and see how many votes are for "going back to Cleveland". all that shit leading up to The Letter was basically of the "he's never going back to play for Gilbert" flavor. EVERYONE, not just OKP said it.

>and yes kyrie career trajectory was pure shit before The
>Letter

nope. even if it wasn't on the Cavs, he would have CP3-ed his way onto another team and been good.

>longo and bags basically made up the "he gone" narrative cause
>it was the ONLY way his career was going be a success at that
>point in time

no, that came from people (fans of big market teams) salivating over his talent and mad that CLE drafted him (or even had the chance to draft him. that's the hidden part of that Derrick Williams is better agenda)

though Longo did want him out of CLE because he's a citizen of LeBronon and (honestly, the way that front office was going with what they had was some shit).

>nigga had ZERO chance of leading a bad team to success as the
>#1

we'll never get to see it now. I think that he was going to finally do it after this offseason. but things have changed.

>i have no problem with him being bron's butler. if he fuck up
>in prime time though it's getting examined

lmfao @ Bron's Butler. Dude is gonna be better alongside LeBron than Dwyane Wade ever was. Book it. Bron gonna be "old" before Kyrie will.

I've rooted for the Cavs without waver since Price/Nance/Daugherty.

if we're talking player nations, I have citizenship in the following locales:

- Rondopia
- Kobestan
- North Kyriea

I also have a summer home in NyQuil Township, Georgia.

and I have never adopted the Celtics or the Lakers as my "team". ever. I'm not even vacationing in LeBronon.

the dude I "hate" made my team better on paper.
I don't care if other people care about the team or not.
they are non factors.

it's literally what people were talking about everyday. how does no one remember this? i already agreed he and the heat flamed out in the finals. the two are not mutually exclusive.

I assumed the Finals was the point of discussion here.

I think by now, LeBron knows that he can't appear/go slack in big games, and it largely showed this last season. at least in the box scores, so I don't expect him to "choke".

it's just people try to forget that he can and HAS choked...

In response to Reply # 129


  

          

a good, experienced team can sorta take it easy in the reg. season, knowing they're basically ensured a top 4 seed. a new team doesn't have that luxury. they HAVE to focus on gelling completely in the regular season in order to have playoff success. the 08 celts are a good example: they stormed in and took the top spot from the pistons. the heat are on the other end, as we should've known something was up when they let the bulls steal away the 1 seed (no excuse for their finals performance, just saying everything wasn't as perfect as everyone's painting it now). in fairness, they did destroy the bulls in the playoffs, but couldn't that be more emblematic of problems with that bulls team rather than a credit to how good the heat were? more than 1 team can flame out in a single postseason.

I guess. But I still think that 2011, there was no excuses. not even the "gelling" excuse. that was a legit choke job. that was the kind of shit that got Dirk fried for years, the kind of shit that made Kobe the bete noir of OKS.

I don't remember too much about the regular season games to call the seeding issues (they basically did the same thing in 2014). but I do think the Bulls team then had some major problems. Some of which remain today but if Rose checks out I'll take 2014 Bulls over 2010 Bulls, for the reasons mentioned above.

specifically because that mavs team wasn't the greatest champion ever. and again, i've acknowledged their choking. but even when a top team has "no excuses" we can still analyze the team's issues. no team is perfect, and there's always a post-mortem to be done for the finals loser. the fact of the matter is they were up and down all season long. they'd look completely on the same page some nights and completely off others. they even won some of the games they were completely off just based on talent alone, but the headline the next day was still about what was wrong with them.

I won't even say Bron choked.. you actually have to try and fail to choke. That negro hid.... He was M.I.A.

To his credit he came back like gangbusters and introduced us to bath salt bron in 2012 but that doesn't change 2011.

I was happy he figured it out tho. No one wants to see a person that talented fail to make it happen. That's not good for the sport.

239. "IMO there were gelling issues as late as 2012"
In response to Reply # 56


  

          

A lot of people, myself included, thought OKC would win the series because they played more as a team. That's kind of stunning to consider now, because in the post-Harden era, they have struggled with that themselves. But they were basically 10 seconds of Bron iso and 10 seconds of Wade iso. Defense was coming together. In 2011, I'd say even that wasn't there yet. There was more to that 2011 loss than Bron folding. Team chemistry was a factor. The Mavs being on a mission was another. It's funny that the same people cysing the fuck out of the Heat losing to the Mavs in a reasonably close series are just overlooking the way they absolutely sodomized the Lakers that same postseason.

And you will know MY JACKET IS GOLD when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

In response to Reply # 56


  

          

LeBron was the one who kept them in the game. He had a triple-double in Game 6. With 32 points. A bunch of a which brought them back before Ray Allen hit the three. Anything else is lame revisionist history.

Who scored 15 points in the fourth quarter, getting them back in the game? Who hit the three to make it 94-92?

In response to Reply # 295


  

          

because I said LeBron nearly choked. When that's what everyone (except basketball nerds and LeBron fans) would have said about that series if anyone else had won a game like that under those same conditions. it was literally seconds away from a total choke job until the Ray Allen, and it went to a 7th game, which wasn't.

it wasn't a "choke". it was a "near-choke".
there is a negative connotation with that word, I understand.
but I'm not in the business of tailoring my language to appease LeBron fans. I call it how I see it. you can put up monster stats in a game, to keep your game in it, and still almost choke.

"choke" doesn't just mean 4th quarter disappearance.

and I'm not "mad" because I saw a guy sit on the court with defeated body language because all of his work was about to be for naught.

that's what I saw. does that make me mad?

why would I even be mad at that anyway? LeBron won in 2012, without asterisks. if anything -that would have made me mad.

that's why I'll never get over Game 6

the narrative would've been how Pop contained Bron by sagging off of
him and forcing long jumpers

I remember how sad Bron looked before the last few minutes of Game 6

just like he did when the Celtics ran him out of Cleveland

imo it's tough to take a discount on your first max deal, whether it's this one or somewhere later in your career (especially if it's somewhere later, when you have been playing for way less possibly).

who's starting at 2 guard if Dion is coming off the bench? Jones?

my only agenda going forward is that this is Kyrie's team. I always wanted him in Cleveland post-LeBron, he was quick to resign, he soldiered on through all the bullshit. he can leave in 2018 or whenever it is, and be recognized as the Point God when he's gone.

IMO he is a major (if not -the- factor) LeBron came back (the rest worked out for political/PR/agenda reasons) so I'm looking through that lens. the message with this trade is everyone after Dion Waiters doesn't count.

I can only hope LeBron can get some of these dudes right (and by these dudes, I mean Dion... because while I like him as a baller in general, I don't think he works in conjunction with Kyrie. he would be ill in relief of though)

also I can also hope that Tristan will be no longer miscast and resume his bamma janitor role, instead of trying to make him the kind of player I believe Anthony Bennett is, and Kevin Love is in the extreme.

as a Cavs fan in 2014, LeBron and Love = Dave Stewart, Devon White, Dave Winfield, Mookie Wilson, Rickey Henderson et al. high tier dudes on other teams that some how, someway the Jays managed to score and win titles with.

Cavs ain't winning a title in 2014-15. 2015 forward it's title or bust mode. if the FO don't get that other center they can eat the poo poo.

god speed, Wiggins and Bennett.

you must be looking to have your part on OKS: The Movie played by Clarence Williams III.

things have changed in Cavalier land, but I will admit that I'm not changing that tune completely unless I see one title. and I'll be as petty and stubborn as the most fierce of haters. especially with this latest development. however if a title happens, he gets unconditional praise.

I'm going with the dude they drafted after Armageddon, and hung in there through all the BS.

I also believe that if the Cavs were Derrick Williams and a bunch of other Chris Grant Specials, this offseason would be less interesting and we'd be all back to hating Miami again.

deal with it.

unless it can be believed beyond a reasonable doubt that LeBron retires a Cavalier, it will eventually be Kyrie's team whenever the LeBron Return Experiment reaches its natural conclusion regardless.

that bullshit that was put up in that letter to make us all feel good about him going back? ehhhhhhh... I'll believe it when I see it.

I'm just speaking as I see it as a fan who's watched the team for the last few years. I don't care what conventional wisdom is. let everyone else watch it with their agendas. Kyrie's the future. LeBron is (until proven otherwise) a nostalgic steward.

this is just adding more fuel to the fire IMO.

after all the moves pre-Bron this offseason I would have been good if they signed Ed Davis to a garbageman contract.

I'll reframe it for those of you who are mad:

the only reason I'm happy with everything that's happened since last month is because Kyrie benefits. he's the one positive symbol of the Dark Ages in Cavalier fandom. next to Rondo, he's my favorite player in the league.

I'm still not a LeBron James fan. I don't blame him for leaving to win titles, dudes leave Cleveland (and other) teams for that all the time. he went out like a total sucker. repeated that performance in 2011, which too many in his cult try to deny. some people even go so far to make him better than Jordan that they make me, a Jordan-hater, defend him. and I really resent that people put all the LeBron Hate on Cleveland fans for two reasons:

1. there were still heavy pockets of the Cult in Cleveland
2. ain't NO way that much of the country cares about the Cavs that much to join with them in the chorus of hate

admittedly, he's earned a few points back toward my personal good graces, because he's made a lot of people here who don't feel the same way I do happy. a title will put him all the way back there.

Yes, I'm mad. Let's move on.

but who has ever denied that Bron sucked in the 2011 finals? literally no one says he played well, and his suckiness in the finals was the ONLY thing discussed for an entire year. then he won one and people didn't talk about it as much... cause that's what happens with ANY athlete. And two rings deads the choking convo forever. The only people it came back for was A-Rod and Peyton. They got passes for a while, but if they had a 2nd ring they'd get passes for life.

302. "ok, go find O_E's post about that series."
In response to Reply # 298


  

          

there were at least 10 people who tried to play the "it's old, let's move on" card. and at least 10 more that were mad at him for making it, calling him all kinds of "hater", etc.

the people who pretend 2011 didn't happen, or think it matters less in the big (unrealistic) picture (that they themselves crafted for him, mind you) don't get to say "passes for life" after they hint about rank him above Michael Jordan (and there were people trying to do that, too).

I'm of the mind that LeBron is without certification or ranking, an all-time great, who likely won't have the ridiculous resume that Michael Jordan has. That's fine, because it can be explained, simply by he hasn't played on the best teams available. he's done a lot to control that variable over the last 4-5 years, which is something you can't say of Jordan. his story will be a different one.

if you're going to put him up with the big dogs, you have to look at everything. and a lot of the big dogs don't have a series where something like -that- happens. that's all I've ever said.

I think O_E hit the nail on the head when he said he had zero problems with LeBron James the person, but a few issues with LeBron James the basketball player, who can somehow be overrated whilst still being the best player in basketball and one of the best in basketball history.

but if you point out those things, people go crazy. it's weird.

reminds me of Jay-Z, really.

who you gonna go for 40 on now that Kevin Love's headed to the East? I guess David Lee is still out there...

Ibaka, Duncan, Aldridge, Blake, Dirk et. al. can go back to playing the grown man's game with real stakes, while Love sleepwalks and stat pads with LBJ.

my biggest fear was a Wiggins/Bron combo when we're set to be good in our conference.

I'm happy... I'm good. Long run Minnesota WON. They're set with a nice foundation especially if Bennett pans out.

They still need interior help, which they could have gotten in 2015. This MIGHT put them over the hump in the East, but not in the league. I guess LBJ going for not two ... not three ... not four ... but maybe 5 L's in the finals?

At least get 1 ring in Cleveland so the media can run its course and someone can write a book about it. Then they can amnesty one of LBJ's bff's once money gets tight, and basketball can go on w/ its life. I just don't think THIS is the way to go about it

the more I look at it, they see Love as an "available superstar who isn't redundant with the strong points of the team" and made the trade.

the Cavs are just basically a skeleton team though. worse off than Miami was in 2010.

I love Wiggins and what he could have done for the team, but I think they'd be ECF locks with or without him, so it doesn't really matter, I suppose. Short-term, at least, this will be at absolute worst the most fun team to watch in recent years.

especially I see no hints of Dieng in this deal. (guess you had to do that to avoid adding another player in there for salary purposes). but this trade is a foregone conclusion. the Wings of Canada are going to Prince City.

at least the Heat were a playoff team in 2009. this Cavs team was an absolute mess. and how little they have has been exposed in all these moves.

I think people look at it as "protecting Kyrie", but that dude isn't a "savior" class player (only a few are: LeBron James is one of them). and only fools were expecting it. he was way better than expected, esp. in that first season. with a purpose beyond tanking he will improve, but he has his problems that are well documented: health and defense.

he turns it on when there's competition (see him against teams like the Blazers or Raptors where there's a "peer" guard he's up against). but that team... with Mike Brown coaching? dogg.

this is a confirmed Blatt-ready team with no "ramp ups" needed. I'd feel better if they got a center.

if Love played better defense I'd be 100% aboard instead of like 75%. but he's the perfect player for the kind of game I think they're going to play under Blatt. It's gonna be nice to see LeBron, Kyrie, and Love in a ball motion offense.

I just feel like they're gonna get EXPOSED. I guess it's better to have that fear rather than to have the "goddamn it, stop with the fuckin' hesitation and SHOOT" fears.

Yes, I'm mad. Let's move on.

Bring in old-ass Nazr Mohammed. He can still defend for 15 mpg.

Or offer Orlando Tristan and a pick for Kyle O'Quinn. I love that dude.

definitely. the transition game alone will be worth the price of admission.

now as far as the defense, i doubt they have the rim protection to field a top 10 unit. that, combined with the rookie head coach and the fact that their young guys haven't played a single big game in their nba lives, makes me think the year one title talk is a bit much. but yeah, that offense should be a pleasure to watch.

for Melo, the media should be slurpin on Flip right now.

Superstar trades almost never get back fair value and this is one of those rare trades involving big names in which everyone wins.

Minny got a nice young squad right now.


Flip should win Exec of the Year but Griffin (LeBron) will win it.

about the Cavs getting Lebron and keeping Wiggins but he wasn't having it.

When things with the Warriors fizzled out Flip started talking to the Bulls and forced Cleveland's hand.

He's definitely a better GM than coach.

AB is coming off a horrible rookie season, Wiggins has yet to suit up in an NBA game and the pick is an unknown.

Flip's put the team in a pretty good position (kind of,) but save the awards for when we know what these players are going to do.

In response to Reply # 92


  

          

They got a potential superstar in Wiggins to pair with LaVine, AB, Dieng, Pek and an additional 1st rounder (albeit late) to build around.

That's a nice young core, better than most rebuilding teams, at least on paper. Things could be way worse considering most teams that lose their superstar usually are left with a lot less to work with.

He played it well, but if Love wasn't interested in Cleveland this shit never sniffs reality.


In which case, he's looking at the Bulls meh package, hoping GS give up Klay, or just keeping Love and praying for a miracle.


This is like 98% Love/Bron, and 2% Flip not totally fucking up an easy thing.

The "same agent" angle is a cyse. Tristan ain't getting paid unless by some miracle he can defend and hit a jumper this year.

Outside of Kyrie and James, I thought they had the money to sign him but did the trade to keep him from other teams (and to appease James). Kinda like Carmelo and the Knicks a while back.

lebron, kyrie, thompson, waiters, bennett and wiggins would have put them @ ~60M for those 6 alone.

and minny prolly would've already moved him to golden state or chicago anyway.

the t wolves werent going to lose love for nothing. if this wasn't the deal, then golden state or some other team would have given them something similar. there was no way they would let love hit the UFA market. even if they did, cleveland would not have had the cap space to sign him outright

I mean do you really think what New Orleans was getting for Paul was on par with the return that Minnesota is getting here? I mean honestly I think this is a better deal for Minnesota than what they ultimately got for Paul, let alone the table scraps they were getting from the Lakers.

We haven't seen Wiggins play an NBA minute, and Bennett was garbage last year. Still, fuck Dan Gilbert for intervening in the building of a super team and then turning around and building one himself.

Also, for all the other stuff he's done as a terrible fucking owner.

Yes I'm mad.

Dan was smart enough to spend money & let Chris Grant do a full rebuild which netted the overall pick that became Kyrie Irving. Dan might still be paying Baron Davis for all I know


Chris Paul forcing himself to the Lakers would have been bad for the entire NBA, regardless of how much you dislike Gilbert, anyone could see that


Drafting Kyrie, signing LeBron & trading two consecutive overall picks for Love is significantly different than Chris Paul being traded to the Lakers for Lamar fucking Odom

ESPN might pull that BS, but since whatever team LeBron is on is "LeBron's Team" (quoted above), he's gonna take that L regardless if he is the one who chokes or not.

people weren't partying on Wade and Bosh during those Finals Ls, dogg
even I don't blame LeBron for the Heat's latest loss, but... you know, LOL

If they make it to the Finals and lose again, winning 1/3 of the Finals you've been in is NOT a good look.

if you're looking for an "at least" statement, i will confidently predict that lebron james will retire with a minimum of 4 rings. 5 is about 50/50. 6 is 20 percent.

Bron has a LOT more miles with his early start and # of deep playoff runs, but he's also built like no athlete we've seen before so it's extremely difficult to predict when his prime will fall off.

The comparisons to Jordan for every player is simply unfair. Lebron is an ungodly athlete, and chances are he'll play elite ball well into his 30s, but the mileage on Lebron is unlike Jordan -

When Jordan won his 3rd, he was 30 with 661 regular season games, 111 playoff games, 3 finals runs, and 1 Olympic run to the gold medal game.

Lebron enters this year with 842 regular season games, 158 playoff games, 5 finals runs, 3 Olympic runs (2 to the last possible game). He's played more basketball right today than anyone.

That's over 2 seasons more games that Lebron has played, and another half season in playoffs. Plus Jordan got a year and a half off of basketball.

Fuck the Cavs....(but u know we cool Doc...lol)

But yeah...the truth is James only has to win one ring in Cleveland...1 ring in Cleveland is worth 4 rings....This is a city that hasn't seen any rings from any of the pro sports since Jim Brown was running that pigskin...

As much as the James haters will balk at this shit, it's the truth...That said...

(Bulls!!!!)
