Cleveland Cavaliers general manager Koby
Altman proudly waited outside the visiting locker room after the final buzzer
to give LeBron James and the players on his victorious new-look team an
appreciative fist pound on Sunday afternoon. Injured forward Kevin Love yelled
out, “There you go! There you go.” Sharpshooter Kyle Korver gave a look of
pleasant surprise. Guard J.R. Smith yelled out, “We got an [expletive] squad
now.” And before James hit the locker room door, former NBA great Kevin Garnett
hugged him and said, “Y’all look so different.”
“At the end of the day, I like being
around guys that want to win and work hard,” James said. “I know I demand a lot
of excellence in my teammates. I demand it out of myself, too. On the road, we
are going to play as well as we can and put ourselves in contention to compete
for another championship. And that’s my mindset.”

There is too much focus in this thread to
the title but I really suggest reading the article because there are some cool
parts in there, specially about trade deadlines and all that. Like those:
Late on the morning of Feb. 8, Cleveland
acquired Hill from the Kings for guard Iman Shumpert as part of a three-team
trade. And once a gleeful Hill got the call that the trade was done, he
instantly engaged in a victory lap while holding his infant daughter.
“I had a newborn daughter a month
ago,” Hill said. “I had my daughter in my arms, feeding her a bottle because
she was a big chunky baby. And I get the call from my agent. I lifted the baby
in my arms and ran around the house not out of disrespect, but out of
excitement for a new opportunity.”
Cavaliers forward Jeff Green called his
agent just to make sure he wasn’t next before the 3 p.m. ET trade deadline
“It was crazy. I’ve been part of a
trade … , ” Green said. “That was crazy. My wife and I were sitting in the
house and I was packing because we had a road trip. And I remember going to my
bag and I came back, turned on the TV and it was the first trade, Isaiah. Damn.
‘Let me text Isaiah.’ Then I got up and walked away for two minutes and [ESPN’s
Adrian] Wojnarowski was talking about the I.T. trade and they said, ‘Welp, we
got another one for Cleveland. Then two seconds later, it was D-Wade. And then
I text and said, ‘Who’s next?,’ because, you never know.
“It was something that happened
quick. It was crazy. But I’m happy with the guys we had. I text my agent Roger
Montgomery and said, ‘What the hell is happening?’ He said, ‘It’s been crazy.
But I think you’re good.’ By this time, it was almost 3 o’clock, so let’s get
in this car and go to the plane.”

They traded away locker room cancers while
bringing in young, hungry players. Hood, Clarkson, and Nance Jr can finally
play some meaningful games for the first time in their career, and on the same
team as LeBron, this team is only going to get better. Cavs are right back to
the top team in the East, I don't know how the Cavs front office pulled that
off when every team in the league knew they were desperate.
[–]BullsHidingInMyCubicle 108 指標 8小時前
There was a lot of addition by subtraction
this deadline as well. I think basketball has a lot of variability due to
momentum and the chemistry of a team and the Cavs essentially fixed the bad
mojo in 60 minutes during the deadline.
I also am super bullish on Hood being one
of the largest difference makers for the Cavs. He is a 6'7 guard who can
probably play the 3 as well. Having George Hill and Hood to start/backup the
guard positions is going to be huge on the defensive side, as well as the
offensive side of the ball.
[–]TheNinjaPigeon 61 指標 8小時前
Don’t forget about Hill on defense, I think
it’s arguably one of the biggest game changers for the Cavs. Teams were just
flat out abusing IT.
LeBron can carry a lot of the offensive
load, but he can’t do much by himself on D. The Cavs are in much better shape
now on that end of the floor.
[–]Cavaliersyuhanz 38 指標 7小時前
Bruhhh. There was a bunch of possessions in
a row in the third quarter where it's either George Hill showing his excellent
individual defense or his rotations that were so on point forcing his teammates
to actually follow and rotate properly as well.
It was so goddamn beautiful. Energy and
effort is contagious. Even JR Smith is back to his reliable defense and at one
point he sprinted towards the corner after they scored because Tatum was ahead
