Irving

Waiters

LeBron

Love

Varejo

 

6th man: Wiggins

 

 

That is a SCARY team.

Wiggins will play the two.  Waiters off the bench.  I'd be amazed if they didn't start him right away, but if they don't, they eventually will.

If they go into the season with LeBron, Love, Wiggins and Irving, they will win a championship.  You have four willing passers who can also give you 20-25 points on any given night, two who can be lock-down defenders (assuming Wiggins carries it over to the pros), and all four with three-point range.  There's no defending that.

While playing in the weak ass East.

 

How would LeBron's legacy be defined though? From leaving an already stacked team for another stacked team just to have a chance at winning a championship?

 

Or how he returns to Cleveland to bring them a championship?

LeBron's legacy has increased by deciding to go back to his home town, and it will only get better if they win a title. If LeBron decided to stay in Miami, Cleveland may not be a playoff team, and they would certainly not be in the Love hunt. 

 

 

 

This first year Cavs GM has it pretty easy so far :laughing:  :laughing:

No one is going to think it like that. Cleveland without LeBron is a bubble playoff bound team. Cleveland with LeBron is a title contender. Everyone is going to think it as "LeBron coming home" and delivering for the state of Ohio.

If that happens I'm writing Silver a letter!

Lets not forget guys.. Lebron is a human being just like kobe. When kobe's achillies burst out.. We were screwed up.. Anything can happen guys.. Lets not give it to them that easy.. The deal is only a deal when it happens. Lebron can be lebron as long as he is on the floor playing.

If Wolves and/or Warriors bend over for that trade, I'm calling bull[expletive]. Where is Stern to nix the deal???

 

Kevin Love is a 26/13 player with 27 PER. He is the guy in same as or better mold than 2008 Gasol. He takes you to championship level. No friggin way you can get him for a mere Tristan Thompson and picks.

 

Wiggins or GTFO.

Cleveland is a really dumb organization.

Wiggins fell onto their lap. So did LeBron. Let's not let that potential championship roster fool you into thinking their the least bit savvy when it comes to trading and building a championship team.

I don't know what's going on up there where they think they could land Kevin Love without trading Wiggins.

Then again, who knows. Maybe they'll win the next 2 lotteries and have more opportunities to grab potential superstars.

Minnesota's current stance: No Wiggins for TWolves, No KLove for Cavs

"Why wait on Wiggins when Love makes them better now," one assistant GM said. "And if you don't get Love now, he's going to be a Laker next summer."

I wouldn't trade Wiggins for Love. That would be like trading Kobe for Dirk or something (if Dirk was in his prime in 96, obviously). You would be good now but regret it soon after.
