James is correct when he contends that the Cavs are p heavy,” and rely should be overtaken by a struggling Toronto team. You should take it into account. Apparently, having James, still better ‘all around’ player in the NBA and a terrific facilitator, and Irving, more of a premier scorer than a playmaker, aren’t enough. On p of this, nor is the team’s NBA high $ 130 million payroll. Losing five of his last seven games, including Monday night to a lottery bound New Orleans team minus star forward Anthony Davis, LeBron James went off on the Cavaliers for failing to upgrade their roster in his quest to win a second straight championship.
For their thin backcourt, the Cavs was looking to add Denver’s Jameer Nelson, Chicago’s Rajon Rondo or Dallas’ Deron Williams.
Rondo, almost any coach’s nightmare, is on the outs in Chicago and in a backup role since being demoted from his starting spot.
Williams will be a buyout candidate for the 1529″ Mavs since this looks like a lottery season for Mark Cuban and Dirk Nowitzki. Could’ve been dealt for the right price, nelson now is serving as Emmanuel Mudiay’s mentor. A well-known fact that is. The majority of the three could Accordingly the Raptors aren’t what James compares his team to, not when he’s striving to win his fourth title.
It’s treated by ESPN and similar media outlets like a full blown cr, when James sounds the alarm.
This one was no different.
LeBron’s comments caused a firestorm, even after he sent out two Tweets on Tuesday backing GM David Griffin. Whenit gets to how the Cavs can upgrade their team, as Cleveland.com’s Joe Vardon points out They also have an open roster spot, two small trade exceptions, and the contract of Chris Andersen to move to create any more space. And now here’s the question. What can they do? It’s an interesting fact that the trade deadline is Feb. Photo. On p of this, dallas’ Deron Williams my be a decent addition for the Cavs, who are looking for a playmaker. Usually, ronald Martinez/Getty Images. Whenever dropping a Fbomb to emphasize his point, that the team needs another playmaker, he also reiterated.
With Smith, in a perfect world, they’d be at full strength, out two more months following thumb surgery.
They can also use more size up front. I not mad or upset at management cause Griff and staff have done a good work, Actually I just feel we still need to improve with intention to repeat. Nonetheless, they are in the p five in scoring, ‘three point’ shooting and offensive efficiency. They’re still atop the East being that they simply can outscore most teams with their p heavy” Big Three. They came into the week ranking 15th in opponent’s field goal percentage, 19th defending the 3 point shot and are 16th in rebounding. Of course the NBA’s worst offensive teams, the Cavs’ woes really start and end at the defensive end, as they showed against New Orleans. Whenever sending a ‘not so subtle’ message to James that what he has to work with now won’t get it done in June, the Warriors and Spurs upgraded their rosters in the offseason and both recently defeated the Cavs.
