Even Lebron looks rejuvenated...With more practice time, this Cavs team will mos def win the east...Lebron has totally controlled the game. This is the type of team you build around Lebron...Props to the new GM. They dont have enough to beat GS though....With that said, whenever the Celts lose, its a great thing

yes...I caught this game on TV tonight. I know its just one game but Cavs looked GOOD.

I don't know Uptown....I think we can start sizing the Cavs for their rings

Lebron would have to play all world in 4 games just to have a chance to beat GS 4 times....The Cavs need another elite player that can step up similar to the way Kyrie did to go along with Lebrons antics. Can't see Hood, Clarkson or Hill duplicating what Kyrie did...GS is rolling out 4 allstars every game. Its almost unfair...

GS looks vulnerable this year. I think they are more beatable than last year. Or maybe they are following the normal championship team strategy. Rest and coast during the season....Turn it up after the All Star break. We'll see.....But I agree, Cavs looks like the team to beat in the east once again!

GS looks vulnerable but i wonder if thats out of boredom/disinterest in the reg season...With that said, I think they are more vulnerable to teams like the Rockets and OKC...Not sure if Cleveland will/can threatned them in the finals...

Seems the Clips came close to trading DeAndre Jordan in exchange for Frye, Shump, Crowder and the Cavs 2018 pick, because they didn't want to take on Shump. I think they made a big mistake there as Jordan is likely walking- a 1st rounder and Crowder would definitely be worth taking on Shumps contract for.

Wow....I think actual trades that went down helped the Cavs more than if the Jordan trade goes down. Getting Isaiah off the floor and out of the lockerroom was a must and the Hood, Clarkson, Nance and Hill just fit better around LeBron...

I don't understand what Charlotte is doing. Both Monk and Willy STILL with zero minutes.

While I hope our 2 second round picks end up being gold, I am actually pulling for Willy (and Monk) and hope they have good careers. they both seem like good guys

Just makes you wonder what's going on behind the scenes in practice etc.

Willy will learn many great things from Dwight. Such fun fella's!!!

Couldnt get into the All Star game, or what it is now. Felt more like a scrimmage. NBA has to do a better job promoting the teams in advance, giving them a personality of their own, like regular NBA teams.

Charlotte is letting Rich Cho go. Reportedly they are going to try and bring in Kupchak. In regards to Willy, Perry got the best deal for the Knicks, honored Willy's request but Willy's situation did not improve in regards to playing time.

Several guys who have worked under Rich Cho have implemented his scouting system around the league and even in other sports. He's considered one of the best scouting minds in all of professional sports.

Michael Jordan is an idiot. Letting go of Cho means any bright young mind in the league realizes Charlotte is the place to go for your career to die. ( You'll be handcuffed, if you luck out from Jordan's bat**** insane moves, he'll take the credit, or he'll gut you in the press via Nike to avoid responsibility.

Knicks should hire Cho in some capacity.

That he survived under Paul Allen and then Michael Jordan is a testament to some kind of will power/masochism. The word around the league is other GMs laugh behind Jordan's back. The buzz is other GM's have NO IDEA what Jordan will do next, because none of it approximates any kind of rebuilding plan in ANY SPORT from ANY TIMELINE in recorded sports history.

The true test to a man frortitude is to survive and prosper under Dolan!!

Minny (Thibs) signed Rose for the rest of the season. I hope Perry keeps an open line with Thibs.


Thibodeau is probably hoping Noah gets bought out. He seems determined to recreate the Bulls in Minny. Noah probably would love that.

Hope Perry can exploit this situation.

Might want to contact the Minny GM?
The more Minny could pay Noah, the more discount he can take from knicks.
