They made LeBron feel all warm and fuzzy...I believe they are some of his best buds in the game.

They can all get on the banana boat in the off season. Seems like this only helps the Cavs run this year. I'm not a Cavs fan but very happy that Iman Shumpert is gone. We watched the playoffs last year and the boss and I kept saying, why is this man shooting the ball?

I think they got a lot better. Hood, Nance, & Clarkson are all starter/6th man level players. If George Hill can play like he did last year, he is too.

I never expected them to trade Wade. I definitely have to wonder how much Lebron has a say in all these trades, and whether the Cavs are just prepping for the inevitable of Lebron leaving Cleveland after this year.

Apparently Wade asked for the trade

Maybe the problem in Cleveland isn’t these guys but it’s LeBron. New guys same problem. No one runs on transition defense. LeBron can’t coach these guys on defense, Lue is just a puppet.

After many weeks of denial by many, is it safe to say now that that lineup was a sinking ship? I read that many fans said it would right itself.

How the mighty IT has fallen. He went from thinking he owned Boston and was going to sign a max deal to now being traded 2x in one year. Dude must be reeling. Iím so glad DA fleeced another team and trade his unwanted assets and turned them into gold.

Hill's still a solid perimeter defender who can play both guard positions. Tough to say how all the players will fill in but I get the sense Cleveland got 'better'.

I disagree. The problem was never Lebron. Lebron couldn't do it all himself. It took a triple double out of him just to send it to overtime, and then hit the game winner himself, just to win the game. It is all about effort and he is the only one really putting in the effort. He couldn't do that for a 7 game serious. Too old and too many miles. It was time to change it all up, go young, and more athletic. Upgrade for the Cavs.

Not everyone thinks that. LeBron is a problem every team would love to have.

I don't think they'll make Hood the starter, specially since he's a rental.
