Sunday's loss in Miami was shocking and will likely have the Patriots doing some second-guessing this week.

    Not necessarily, assuming Thomas returns to 100% by season's end, but it's a situation where it's worth a shot to make the moves, since James and Thomas weren't working out as a duo and didn't look as if they were going to be either willing or able to change that.

    maybe.......they become more athletic, but with Love out for 8 weeks, they're going to get destroyed in the middle.....the bigger picture is that they are now better off for when Lebron goes after the season

    When I heard IT criticize the Cavs coaching staff for poor in game adjustments, I figured he was on his way out.

    At the time of the trade, Kyrie was about as bad a defensive player as Thomas.

    I agree if this cast of characters gels Cleveland is back in it and might be much better than before.

    How are Ball and IT going to play together when they both need the ball in their hands? The Lakers draft pick is now back in play.

    Doesn't really matter. It's not like Love missing a couple months is the difference between making the playoffs or not. They'll be a top-4 seed in the playoffs, have as good a chance as anyone else at making the finals, and Hill's defense gives them a much better chance against Golden State than IT would have.

    I kn0w you could Teach a 6'3 player how to play D in Today's NFL. But a 5'9 player and that's a stretch is like trying to get blood from a stone.

    Then the Lakers should buy him out. Would it technically be possible for Celtics to sign him if he is bought out considering they traded him away within the past year? He could be a great second unit scorer for them.

    Cleveland's deals smell more of giving up on the idea of keeping LeBron than of a team preparing for a run this year.

    I hate to say it but I have to agree with the 'toxic' part. Maybe that is a bit of an overstatement but still. He was only with Cleveland briefly and had already caused discord in that locker room with the Kevin Love stuff.

    The rumors that IT wasn't easy to play with have gained at least some credibility.

    As far as winning the deal? It's quite clear Ainge won and I think many of us were confident when it happened that it would be the case.
