Trade demands like Kobe’s are simple to resolve. Either you get better soon enough to defuse the anger, or you don’t, in which you case you make a trade when there’s still runway left.
What does success look like if you keep Kyrie? The Cavaliers cannot trade LeBron, either technically (he has a trade veto) or theoretically (he’s LeBron f’n James). There are rumors James will leave of his own volition in 2018, and it’s plausible Cleveland could wait for that eventuality before dealing with Irving’s request. That makes for one awkward season and a very strange 2018 free agency recruiting period. Any iota of attention Cleveland dedicates to LeBron in that case is a slap in Kyrie’s face.
In some sort of utopia, LeBron could cede control of the offense completely to Irving, letting him put up the MVP numbers he apparently believes he can. James could become another of Kyrie’s jump shooters, a new Channing Frye or Kyle Korver. He could defer to the brash New Jersey kid to the point of discomfort, and likely to the Cavaliers’ discontent as the No. 1 seed in the East flutters ever further away. The Cavaliers could give Kyrie exactly what he says he wants by subduing the Greatest of His Generation and Maybe All Time, a thriving living legend who could win MVP every year if the voters wouldn’t get bored.
“I think it’s a shocking event, but it’s not Nike NFL Jerseys Supply surprising, the NFL Jerseys Authentic hate that’s still around.”
Brogdon has become the latest athlete to speak out on Charlottesville. Recently, LeBron James tweeted his disappointment with the gathering and subsequent attack, in which 32-year-old Heather Heyer was killed in a crowd of anti-racism demonstrators when a Nazi sympathizer purposefully plowed his car through the protest.
It’s sad what’s going on in Charlottesville. Is this the direction our country is heading? Make America Great Again huh?! He said that ?♂?
