He did look good, i only saw highlights....
Still, sit that guy another day and bring him back in Boston ....give the fans something to yell at, lol. Id love to see some Kyrie V. IT3, you know they would have a shoot out!! Dude will take a load off LBJ going forward.

What a disappointing Cavs/Cs game. I watch the entire thing and thought I was watching a preseason game. Both benches played a ton. Cavs starters couldn't hit anything. It was super boring. I was hoping for some Kyrie vs LBJ match ups and nothing. Looks like we will have to wait till the post season!

See, they needed the Kyrie V. IT3 factor to spice it up. I'll one up you. I watched the lakers play their worst game this season V. OKC. Lakers are terrible at this point, I think the losses are taking a toll in their heads. Completely uninspired, bad defense...I however turned it off a minute into the 4th qtr, so the whole night wasn't a waste.

Feb 11 will be the better match up. IT3 should be back full strength.

I caught the very beginning of that Laker/OKC game and Lakers looked good for the first few minutes then it was OKC.

Lakers on a one game winning streak. They beat ATL, the worst team in the NBA. Things are looking up.

Should I be worried about the Cavs? They are looking terrible.

Be worried about the Wolves - they're looking amazing!

Its the dog days of the nba, after the break Lebron and cavs will be back on track.
4 game streak by the lakers in jeopardy Ingram, no Lonzo in Memphis.

4 Ls in a row by the Cavs. They looked great in the first half but lack of defense and the Warriors doing their thing was too much for the Cavs to handle.

If the Cavs didn't beat the Warriors two years ago are we talking about the Warriors as the best team since the 60s Celtics? They'd be going for 4 straight titles! I know the Bulls with MJ were unreal but I'd love to see how they'd match up against this Warriors team.

^^^Yes. Think about it. They have 4 allstars (Durant, Curry, Green, Thompson) they have the defensive player of the year (Green) and Durant will be on the 1st maybe 2nd team all defense. Klay Thompson is all defense every year. Curry 2 time mvp. Durant 2 time scoring champ. Thompson top 5 shooter in the league. Then look what they have off the bench, Andre Iguodala, Shawn Livingston, david west, Javale McGee and Swaggy P. Its a killer roster, they play D, they share the ball and they got cold blooded shooters.

The only way for the Cavs to even have a chance at beating them is for LBJ to play a perfect game. Like 40/10/10 type game. I just don't see that happening four times in a 7 game series. I think the Rockets are better suited to beat the Warriors than the Cavs are at this point.

I heard a different take on the cavs today. They play bad in January to send a message to ******** owner Dan Gilbert. They need to go out and get a DeAndre Jordon, George Paul...someone. They cant beat the Warriors with THIS team.
Concur, Rockets are good. They had a feisty game with the clips a couple days ago, Griffen and Trevor Ariza were ejected...after the game Ariza, Chris Paul, Harden and Green went into the Clipper locker room (through a secret door CP3 knew about since he was a clip the last 5 years) looking for a fight. Wait and see who gets fines by the league.

^^I wish that was true but I think they are just lazy. Watching their games is so frustrating at times when no one plays D and then on offense they go to iso with LBJ and no one moves. I'd love to see DeAndre on the Cavs. Or really anyone that can rebound and block shots.

I'm leaning more and more to the possibility LBJ heads to Houston after this season. He'd be the #2 offensive threat and would have CP3 to handle the rock. He could transition his game to more back to the basket / post up. I hope that doesn't happen but unless the Cavs make a serious run at the title this year I think his time in Cleveland might be done.

Ya think so? Did LeBron give Durant crap for "taking the easy route"?
He needs to exit the mistake by the lake...Id do it on the principle of stop making Dan Gilbert rich and relevant.

^I don't think LBJ gave KD much crap over heading to GSW.

I'm sure you'd rather LBJ come to LA but I don't think he's ready to take over a super young team again. LA should be courting KD instead of LBJ.
Houston makes a lot of sense for LBJ, great fan base, larger market than Cleveland or Miami, Harden is a better version of DWade, CP3 is just as good as Kyrie. It would be an insane team.

I hear ya. Months ago I really thought James was heading here. Now, i think its an extreme long shot. Lakers will most likely pursue Paul George, but in my opinion if he is your best guy you are an 8 seed in the west. He needs to be 2nd or 3rd option for a true contender. I hope the lakers dont blow their wad on someone like Boogie Cousins. I would get PG13 and If we cant get a real #1 then hold off til next year, play the young guys we got and continue to get better.
Houston, I think, is for real. If James leaves the east...they would have to re-arrange the playoffs....take the 16 best teams...not top 8 in each.

Tonight is Los Angeles Lakers V. Boston Celtics in LA. I just hope we dont get blown out.

CRAZY trade deadline for the Cavs.....

Sorry to see Rodney Hood go, but excited to get Jae Crowder. Surprised that Favors didn't get moved, but not disappointed. I'm still hoping they can find a way to get him and Rudy on the floor together, which has proved to be difficult.

What a wacky few hours today .... Cavs sent away like 50% of their team today. I think its probably all for nothing too.... GSW or Houston probably wins it this year, Cavs don't and LBJ leaves.

LBJ did break my heart last night against the Wolves.... what a wild game.
Old    Darren Lamont (83Starsnstripes)      Join Date: Jul 2013       02-08-2018, 6:11 PM Reply   
Cavs dropped their dead weight other than Crowder. Frye, Wade, Rose, and IT were all liabilities on defense. Frye was a good shooter but they already have plenty of guys to kick out for 3s. Rose, Wade, and IT have all lost a step. I'm betting Wade & Rose will be done after this season. IT3 isn't the same player and I bet he's out of the league in two years.

Meanwhile, the Cavs pick up Hill a great PG, Hood who has also been productive, Clarkson & Nance who are young but longer defenders. I think the Cavs got a serious upgrade today. Will they win the Championship, probably not but I don't think the Cavs get back to the Finals without making these moves.

I'm liking the first showing of the new look Cavs!! Celts give up the most points all season at home on Paul Pierce night! Love it.
Old    Darrel F (95sn)      Join Date: Sep 2005       02-13-2018, 3:26 PM Reply   
Cavs made good trades. They got younger, more athleticism, better guys/attitudes on the bench. In the end, Lebron still leaving.
I disliked paul Pierce even before the wheelchair stunt in 08. Good the celts get punked on PP night.

^^LOL. I actually love "the truth". He was a big shot taker and delivered in the clutch. I like his style of play but he's so salty toward LBJ now that I enjoyed the Cavs ruining his big night.

Watched a little of the Cavs vs Thunder last night, this new Cavs team is going to be really good come playoff time. Clarkson & Nance hustle. I'm really impressed by Hood, and Hill is a perfect PG that has great basketball IQ.

Cavs schedule the rest of the way looks pretty favorable too. Wouldn't be surprised if they sneak into the #2 seed.

Dude, you are west coast, spit that paul pierce out and rinse.
That was a big time trade for the cavs, they are WAY better with this group. Obviously i like my boys (Clarkson and Nance) but R Hood is a real talent. Clarkson off the bench is top 3 behind Sweet Lou and Crawford.
Old    Darren Lamont (83Starsnstripes)      Join Date: Jul 2013       02-15-2018, 2:55 PM Reply   
^LOL. Yep. Guys like Pierce, Crawford, and especially The Glove are players I love to watch. They have this lazy offensive style then can flash brilliance. Although, they can be an absolute nightmare for coaches.

That being said Westbrook is quickly becoming my favorite PG to watch. The guy is so damn fast.
Old    Darrel F (95sn)      Join Date: Sep 2005       02-15-2018, 3:53 PM Reply   
Westbrook is probably the most intense NBA'er now. concur.
Have you watched Lou Williams, so smooth. How a 6 ft guy can score and dominate and it looks like he is hardly trying....amazing. Love to watch that guy.
Celtics cant play D now, must of caught it and took it from the Cavs. Clips post Blake have surprised me, thought they would be over. Wrong again.
Lakers back on the i forgot how to play D train, AD dominated them last night.
Jail Blazers on TV last night, Bill Walton on the color analyst chair. That guy is a riot! Props to Portland for beating GS!!
All Star weekend should be fun.

Lakers need to dump IT3 quick. That guy's career is over. I think he will be out of the league in two years. He's just not the same after his hip injury and if he can't score he's an even bigger liability on defense.
Old    Darrel F (95sn)      Join Date: Sep 2005       02-16-2018, 5:51 PM Reply   
You may be right. The hip injury could be a career deal for him. He looked flatout lost.

Finally a competitive All Star game last night. Also, LBJ just reminded everyone he's still the best player on the planet. Can't believe he's still jumping above the rim. The guy does not age.

Best all star game in a long time! New respect for KIrving, Dam Lillard, JEmbiid...Fired me up for the rest of the season. There is no doubt Lebron is still the best there is. Loved Nance's double bank dunk, he was robbed (but he IS an ex Laker). Go back to current or ex nba players as judges. Get rid of the skills challenge, waste of everyones time. Maybe im too old but I dont get the half time shows.
