Well at least the 1st seed is totally wide for the taking in the east!! Could the Raptors top the conference?
The Baltic Beast is unstoppable!
Opens the door for a Bosh move to TO!!
I wonder if Bosh is crying right now.
Unless Miami offers him max Wade should try to get on a contender and play the sixth man role for 10M/year. Like the Spurs. Or OKC.
He could try to be the second best player on a team like the Lakers, but honestly, he would only be shortening his career on a rebuilding team.
So where should Wade go? Chicago? Dallas? What other contender still has cap space? A sign and trade of Lance Stephenson to Miami for Wade?
Maybe he stays in Miami, I guess. But it would be a shame to see him waste his last few years.
Is the Parsons deal a done-deal for the Mavs? Not sure if they can afford Wade.
Chicago would be interesting, but when I think about how hard they play ...
My prediction is that Lebron's move to Cleveland will result in the following domino effect — Bosh will move west to Houston, Melo will resign with the Knicks. Pacers might lose Lance (the Heat now have the money to throw at him and are desperate) and Nets might lose Pierce to the Clippers.
Meanwhile the Raptors, Bulls and Cavs are laughing their asses off.
Sign and trade to the Clippers? Crawford, Dudley, Farmar, Bullock. Maybe add some picks, though I suspect Riley/Heat would accomodate Wade and help him go whereever he wants to go, considering he opted out of that massive contract.
Oh dear god fuck Cleveland if this happens.
Minnesota Timberwolves forward Kevin Love is "intrigued" by the idea of being traded to the Cleveland Cavaliers and would commit long term to the team, a source close to the situation told ESPN.com's Marc Stein.
The Cavaliers have opened talks by offering guard Dion Waiters, forward Anthony Bennett and a first-round pick to the Timberwolves in exchange for Love, sources told ESPN The Magazine's Chris Broussard.
Love said during a June 11 appearance on ESPN's "SportsNation "that it "burns me and hurts my heart" that he hasn't made the playoffs in six seasons in the NBA.
But in Cleveland, Love would pair with young point guard Kyrie Irving and four-time MVP LeBron James, who told SI.com on Friday that he is returning to the Cavaliers.
In his last public comments on his future with Timberwolves on June 11, Love stopped short of confirming that he's determined to opt out of his contract and become an unrestricted free agent in 2015.
"My agent is handling everything at this point ... I'm hoping that everything works out for all parties involved," Love said.
The 25-year-old Love, a three-time All-Star and former rebounding champion, averaged 26.1 points and 12.5 rebounds last season.
The Timberwolves and Golden State Warriors discussed a trade involving Love up until the NBA draft on June 26, but a deal didn't materialize.
After it initially appeared the Warriors were prepared to part with shooting guard Klay Thompson in order to land Love, sources told ESPN.com that Hall of Fame consultant Jerry West and new Warriors coach Steve Kerr voiced opposition to surrendering both Thompson and a future first-round pick to the Timberwolves, along with former All-Star forward David Lee, for Love and Wolves guard Kevin Martin.
This years Cleveland team:
