Agreed, but it's kinda funny to prove to people that I didn't actually make that ish up, that I actually went to that length to mess with Heat fans back in the day lol.

I'm part embarrassed part proud of it lol.

PG and Lebron don't wanna play pf is a big issue. Pf Lebron is the best Lebron but he only does it in the playoffs or here and there.

By that logic, may as well just trade him for Iguodala and the Warriors picks in 2021 and 2023, they may be awful then.


If the Warriors would do that, I might make that trade. The thing is, the Warriors would say no because you have no idea where your team will be in 4-6 years. Plus, Paul George probably isn't worth two picks by that time. Its what made Miami giving Phoenix an unprotected first rounder for Dragic so risky.

Kevin Love is the better asset right now for sure, but I'm not sure I wouldn't rather have a shot at an unprotected pick. Especially for a player that's leaving anyway. Partially because I think the Cavs could easily be a wasteland in a couple of years.

I don't understand why LAL didn't just call up and give them a few late firsts along with Russell and call it a day.

It aint happening.

Pacers using this as leverage to get the Lakers to bite.

Either way Irving is a starting point for me if I'm Indiana.

Love is useless at this point, why help out Cleveland and not benefit from this short or long term.

Then that's the ending point. CLE isn't giving up Irving who may not have even peaked yet, for a one year rental on PG. They would probably hang up on them.

It really does basketball wise, but the top two teams in the conference dont trade with eachother.

Well Ainge doesnt seem like he wants to win anytime soon, so who knows. Maybe he will buck the logic.

Why would the Cavs make that deal? Love for George is a lateral move at best if he's just going to leave after 2018.

Cavs would be better off doing nothing and losing to the Warriors in 5 again next year and still have Love in 2019, than lost to GS in 5 and then have nothing after that when PG leaves.

Its a really risky game to play when its contenders that are rumored to trade for him.

He would have to give up both money and a contending team to go to LAL. He might not, as much as he seems to love the place.

If Lakers let him experience another team, they are tempting fate.

They won't get him at all if he is traded somewhere else and likes it there?

I actually think Boston says no there. At least no to sending out any of their good picks.

If it isn't Love they're better off trading him to the Celtics or Lakers to be honest. The cav's roster outside the big 3 is a bit of a joke (Tristian Thompson isn't worth a whole lot to be honest).

Would not surprise me one bit if LeBron gets talking to PG13, and has him agree to try and leverage to come here for a year to try it out and consider staying long-term. PG13 could then tell suitors that can offer more to Pacers than CLE, that it's fruitless because he is gone after the year is over if they trade for him.

I could see LeBron pulling some back door wheeling and dealing like that.

A risk worth taking. Because the payoff isn't that high (at best a 1st round exit).

I agree that works. Who else will Cleveland get then? Cause PG, LeBron and Kyrie prob not be enough to beat Warriors next year. Melo?
