Best Memes of the Cleveland Cavaliers & LeBron James Trading Half the Team

Preview Cavs @ Thunder

Preview Cavs @ Thunder

Prior to the trade deadline, the narrative was that the Cavs were broken, Dan Gilbert had wrested control of the team away from first-year GM Koby Altman, and it was only a matter of time before LeBron was headed out the door.

"I'd go home and I'd re-watch the highlights of Games 1 through 6 (of the NBA Finals)", Irving said Friday.

The Celtics now own the best record in the conference. They are expected to make their debuts Sunday in Boston.

This wasn't just a terrific statement victory for the new-look Cavs. He was apparently so bad for the Cavaliers that he had to go. Now we'll see if they will be potent enough to survive the likes of the Celtics and Toronto Raptors and get another shot at a title.

At a press conference addressing L.A.'s big move at the trade deadline-which sent Jordan Clarkson and Larry Nance Jr.to the Cleveland Cavaliers in exchange for Thomas, Channing Frye and a first-round pick-Johnson characterized Isaiah as "a veteran who can help Lonzo" learn the ins and outs of his competition and life within the National Basketball Association.

LeBron James and the Cavs dominated the Celtics.

According to Pluto, Thomas' hip injury didn't help things. His time with the Cavs was an unmitigated disaster. "I know it was a good feeling for him to do what he did tonight".

What do you think of the Isaiah Thomas trade, Laker fans? Iman Shumpert, a former Knicks first round pick, was sent to the Sacramento Kings. The Cavs also dealt Jae Crowder and Derrick Rose to the Jazz and received Rodney Hood. "Those first few years he was trying to get there and struggling a little bit, which all young players do".

Korver, the former Hawks fan favorite, made 7 of 13 from 3-point range and finished two points from matching his career high of 32.

James is now surrounded with capable three-point shooters, which could be the difference in important playoff games. Perhaps the most immediate impact we'll see from Clarkson will be on the defensive end of the floor where he is an enormous upgrade over both Thomas and Wade. "We've got some hungry guys and guys that have been here".

Of course, it's also February and the season is more than halfway over. The Cavs played like they didn't like each other.

"Yeah, we stunk", coach Brad Stevens said. "We didn't want to be a part of that".

"The Cavs also added two outside threats (Hood and Hill) shooting better than 38 per cent from beyond the arc, both of whom are comfortable without the ball in their hands, able to complement James and give him the floor spacing he covets".

"It's not about what the other guys didn't bring or what these guys bring", James said after putting up 22 points, 12 rebounds and a career-high 19 assists to log his second straight triple-double. He's having fun again.
