Cavs are in trouble with very little room to upgrade. The contracts for Smith and Thompson will weigh heavily on them now. They need to trade assets in order to upgrade, stay away from those Melo rumors.

Lebron was great in the finals, but you have to let GMs do their jobs with acquisitions.

I will be so upset if we trade for Melo!

Our offense isn't the problem - we need to defend better and Melo is the last thing we need.

Yeah Melo makes no sense. LeBron and Kyrie are already arguably the best ISO players in the game. And that comes with its Cons. Adding Melo who is also a heavy ISO player will just not be a right fit. Hes getting up there in age with LeBron and didn't play defense in his younger days and he for sure ain't playing no damn defense now.

No to Melo. The best option is PG13 and that is a pipe dream at this point. But he can match KD Pound for Pound inch for inch and shot for shot. I think if you can move Love and some sort of filler for PG13 you have to do it. As much as I'm a fan of K love he just has matchup problems with the Warriors.

And I just want to touch up on last night. Ty Lue made some crucial crucial coaching mistakes. The fact that he didn't call a timeout during the start of that huge GSW run in the 2nd qtr is blasphemous. They had a decent lead but after the wide open iggy dunk it just went downhill from there. He should of called a timeout shortly after that with a 4-6 point lead and not let the Warriors go on a 20-2 run with the crowd getting back in the game.

And what really pissed me off was him deciding to give Deron Williams critical minutes late in the game and leaving him in there. This isn't 2010-2012 and this isn't the guy that was balling on the Utah Jazz. He is hesitatant to shoot the ball and can't create shots for himself anymore. What is even more worst is that he's a huge liability on defense. I was screaming at the tv when Lue left him in there against KD and KD was just pulling up in his face with ease.


Ugghhh we should at least be preparing to watch a game 6 man. Smh. What moves the Cavs start making come July 1st?

They need someone who can score, create their own shot and defend. Hindsight is always 20/20, but the Andrew Wiggins trade???

I've always kind of said they should have kept Wiggins. Wiggins growing under LeBrons wing would have been great for his game. But as you said hindsight is a mofo lol

Wiggins was just a raw athletic scorer and lowkey kinda still is. He has a defensive motor though and still has potential to be a top two way wing imo

Lebrons game looks better to me when he's not running the offense

that seems to be something that keeps him on the block constantly and not settling for jumpers

i dont mind Kyries dribbling because hes getting to the cup

cats ready to throw Tristan away, i think he's young enough, able, and more than willing to work on his game.

people knock him for his salary but salaries were supposed to go up regardless.
its so easy to point your finger and talk down about people from a position of privilige....mr. i have two parents and a nice upper-middle class home, i expect some sort of car at 16, and my taste...

Kyrie is awesome, but needs to change his game to beat the Warriors. A constant dose of iso play won't get the job done.

Cavs should look into implementing a ball sharing offense. P&R is great late game, but you can't live off it vs GS.

Am I the only one who felt like it was those hard as brick Kyrie 3's that "hurt" him in the finals?

 

90+ games in shoes with no cushion is murder for you knees and back no?

 

I was just about to buy those Black Ice's too.....nvm now hahahaha

They looked brand new so I dont know if they were a special PE or not.

 

They are supposed to come out this week so not sure.  It looked like the GR to me on his feet.

Yeah, I go back and forth on Kyrie - he's the best ball handler I've ever seen but if he became more of a point guard he could be truly great - and that would also allow Lebron to play longer by taking less of the playmaking load.

I like TT too - and as you say the explosion in the cap will make his salary reasonable in the next couple of years. Same with JR - it won't be ludicrous before long.

The Cavs have plenty of flexibility with guys not under contract so can keep the core and make some moves this offseason. It would be nice to start the season in good shape rather than wait until February.

When does the cap go up again?
post #438 of 450
For the 2016–17 season, the salary cap will be set at $94.14 million and the luxury tax limit will be $113.29 million.[2] For the 2017–18 season, the latest projection is $102 million for the salary cap and $122 million for the luxury tax limit. (Wikipedia). It's a moving number because it's a percentage of income and that depends on sales of things and especially things like agreements for broadcast rights.

Wonder who they would give up

I kind of still like Love on the team even though he hasn't been scoring so well lol
post #443 of 450
Yeah, I like Love a lot (and he's my 8yo's favorite!) but he's the only possible trade. I go back and forth on KI - and obviously Lebron would never be traded - but there's no-one else with the necessary salary - and we'd still be deep in the luxury tax unless we filled the bench with scrubs.

post #446 of 450
Dan Gilbert man smh.

LeBron leaving for sure now lmao. The guy who LeBron openly endorsed is now gone.

Maybe Griff was close to making PG or JB a actual reality and Dan didn't want to take on more Salary? I can picture Dan being like "eh we won one, good enough".

What's even more worse is Dan didn't consult Bron about it. I can picture Bron spitting out his water getting the news and blowing up Dans phone YO F%*% IS YOU DOIN?!
post #447 of 450

This may sound absolutely insane, but if you're Chauncey at the desk, day 1 on the job, do you consider trading Lebron?  Playing devil's advocate, this will be his 15th season.  Realistically, unless Steph or KD go down in the playoffs, GSW will be heavily favored to repeat.  If it were all peaches and cream, how many more dominating seasons would Lebron have anyways?  3 tops?  With all of the buzz in the air of him now leaving again, it will get under Gilbert's skin.  Does he make an even bigger earth shocking move and trade Lebron for a "top 10" player and draft picks, keeping a younger core around Ky, Love, and player X?
