Celtics got an all NBA point guard who's been in three finals, winning one on a clutch shot, and is only 25. Nice trio with Jayson Tatum, who can score in his sleep, and Gordon Hayward.

Cavs got a point guard who is great in the 4th quarter and was a definite MVP candidate, an economic, young, good 3-pt shooter and great defensive player, a potentially good young center, and what should be the no. 1 overall pick next year.

This could be LeBron's last year in Cleveland and Cleveland doesn't have to hold on to Thomas either. They get two young players to build on and can take the first pick as successor to LeBron or trade it for another superstar (and one, maybe two other players).

Yeah LeBron ain't staying, he lost control of the situation of player control for the first time since he left the cavs. He's gone.

Cleveland ain't happy. Thomas's hip is fucked apparently.

Cleveland does have Derrick Rose too though. He played 64 games last year.

Not looking forward to Nicols coming back to the jump. She keeps interrupting all the time when guests are talking. Think shelboure is far better, and she seem better craic.

Shelbourne played softball at Stanford. Really good athlete when younger.

Nichols had the cred, being with ESPN and Turner.

Trivia: Nichols is married to director Mike Nichols and Elaine May's son.

Rollie Massamino died. Coach in one of the greatest upsets ever - 1985 Villanova over Georgetown. Ed Pinckney, baby!

Yeah, read that. They should've gotten one of their players or Kobe to do the job.

:lol: Everyone getting on to Irving for not telling James that he wanted out, do those people really think James is talking to Irving if/when he leaves in the summer?

Kyrie requested a trade though he did not fuck off in free agency. Not that it means he should justify himself to anyone. The Cavs got a fair return.

James is just pissed that someone wanted to leave him which makes him look bad, and that he couldn't control the situation like he has been doing since he moved to Miami.

It's media day for the NBA today. In interview with Steph by ESPN he paid a nice compliment to Paul Pierce, who works for ESPN now, and was sitting beside him. He called Pierce, "The Truth," which was his nickname.

It's funny, I had to go to my dentist in my hometown a couple weeks ago and I drove past a jr. high and said to myself, "Wow, those are nice courts. Are they new?"

Turns out they were and KD just christened them a few days ago.
