Wouldnt surprise, me understandable that he would have that extra stress to deal with. Still should have appreciated the fact that the Cavs traded for him, even though he was damaged goods. Not doing himself any favors.

Cavs are "All hands on deck" to keep LeBron.

The good thing is that these deals allow the Cavs to reset if Lebron leaves. I wonder if Hill signed off on the buyout agreement the Cavs reportedly wanted.

Wow...Defending conference champs basically stripping down and rebuilding in the midst of trying to get into the finals again...

Not sure if any team in their situation has ever done a reboot like this at the trade deadline.

Wonder if James has had any input?

No, but he can guard other perimeter players. It goes without saying that LeBron guards Durant.

I'm not even sure, just at the whole circus of it.

On one hand CLE would want to keep LeBron happy to keep him next year and for a playoff push, on the other hand Gilbert hates LeBron and just gave one of his best buds away for zilch. On the other hand, maybe LeBron and Wade weren't seeing eye to eye these days.

Something is up

Didnt hear about that. Im guessing LeBron would rather stay, if the squad is talented enough.

that might be too taxing though since they need Lebron to run the offense. He needs a break on D. In the finals last year didn't they have Richard Jeffereson on Durant? LOL. I seem to recall.

Clarkson is another good perimeter defender?

Probably reading too much into this but maybe its the GM sending a message that he isnt a figurehead. Wade and LeBron are very close, would be surprised if there was a rift.

Clarkson is better than Isaiah Thomas on D, for what it's worth lol

If I'm doing the math correctly, Cleveland also has 2 roster spots open to pick up any buyout players. What a freaking day for Cleveland.
