    Orlando takes another one of our shitty players? Sure!
    It was a joke.. we can't trade with Orlando this season (due to Weltman) and we can't trade Powell this season (due to his extension).

    Atlanta Hawks seek something that is almost exclusively owned by bottom feeders for the assets they are trying to sell almost exclusively to contenders.

    50 points in a win vs Golden States is no joke!!

    Bring back the captain!
    It's certainly tempting in some respects; CJ Miles has been hot and cold this season, and Lou Will has historically been more hot than cold. And Lou can play capably as a back-up point guard if needed.

    The one thing that makes me say a firm "no" to plugging Lou Will into CJ's current role, however, is that it would run a serious risk of messing up our (largely successful) culture reset. It's not even worth thinking about unless you think we are going to be without Kyle (or have him on limited minutes) in the first round.

    Price is too high. How about Valanciunas for either one of them instead.

    This sounds like a good opportunity to insinuate ourselves. Maybe Bruno or Bebe for a high second rounder, then the other other of Bruno or Bebe plus a high second rounder for Ilyasova? We're win-now enough that I'd be fine with what for us would be Bruno + Bebe for Ilyasova, I think.

    If Masai can turn a Bruno/Bebe rental into a high 2nd rounder which he then flips for Ilyasova, then I'm getting a Blackberry Passport too because I also want to make magic happen.

    So about the trade talk that persists despite Hill’s unfavorable (this season anyway) contract terms. As in the past, he remains unfazed by the chatter while acknowledging the transient nature of his chosen profession. It doesn’t sound as if being traded to a contender would break his heart, either.

    “One thing I’ve learned is that you have to keep your bags packed,” he added. “You never know. If it happens, it happens. But I’ve made great relationships in this locker room and with this club. If I leave, I’ll look them in the face, shake their hand and thank them for the opportunity.”

    Hill was such a good fit in Utah. A shame what happened to that Jazz team....

    "Multiple NBA teams have cited Tristan Thompson as an asset Cleveland is willing to move in the right deal, such as one for the Los Angeles Clippers’ DeAndre Jordan. Nevertheless, the superstar talent of Oklahoma City’s Paul George or New Orleans’ DeMarcus Cousins, each deserving of that Nets first-rounder, won’t see the light in this trade market as of right now, league sources said, as those teams are fully focused on winning with each respective player."

    I like Tristan, but I can't think he's much more than salary ballast on the trade market right now. He's the contract Cleveland would need to toss in alongside the Nets pick, not an asset that's going to land them anything meaningful on his own.

    Cavs are delusional if they think they are trading for anything of impact without including the brooklyn pick

    ah yes, Michael Jordan, who only won all six of his championships with one of the greatest coaches of all time and a top-20-player-of-all-time as his second fiddle and needed another NBA Hall of Famer as well as a FIBA Hall of Famer to win the last three

    When they're winning: GM LeBron made great moves and saved the team

    When they're losing: LeBron needs more help. The front office has to do more.

    I don't know how those other guys keep their head on straight in that environment.

    No player in the Modern age will ever receive the Propped up help from the league and its officials MJ did in order to maintain his status as some immortal Basketball God. The guy was no where as good as he is spoken of, its pretty lame really. His Game and Series winner over Byron Russell says it all... barges into the paint, Legit forearm bashed Russell to the ground and hits an open shot to win... The NBA needed a Hero, Nike needed one and the two made billions off this manufactured "Hero".

    Meh, I don't like Lebron all that much, but he kills Jordan all day long.
