Lebron James Noncommittal About Return To Cleveland

LeBron James

Kevin Love's Cleveland Cavaliers career hasn't always been rosy, but he doesn't want it to end just yet.

However, even adding LeBron and Paul George (or another second superstar) to the Lakers young core likely makes them the third best team in the West, behind Golden State and Houston.

And not surprisingly, Kevin Love's name has been mentioned as the most tradeable asset now on the roster, especially when paired with the No. 8 overall pick in the 2018 NBA Draft.

Even though the Cavaliers were much better than the Pacers, I still trashed-talked with my friends in hope of a Pacers win.

And LeBron James made it clear that, after 15 seasons, he still is in what he described as "championship mode", and his decision on what route to take in free agency will be driven by the desire to surround himself with "cerebral players". Following the 2015-16 campaign where Golden State fell short of winning the title, the team understood that the talent on their roster could easily carry them to the playoffs every year. Having LeBron James back would mean they would be competing for an National Basketball Association title again next season, but it has become clear over the past two seasons that beating the stacked Warriors would require more than just having the four-time MVP in Cleveland's fold.

Since then, Khamenei and other Iranian officials have been on the attack, threatening to increase uranium enrichment. The European powers are trying to come up with a package to ring-fence trade with Iran against renewed U.


"I've also been advised that the ever-persuasive San Antonio Spurs Coach Gregg Popovich is bound to try to force his way into the conversation to sell James on the merits of South Texas", he wrote. Behind Durant and Curry, the Warriors took a 21-point lead into the fourth quarter, and the Cavaliers waved the white towel with just more than four minutes left, taking James out of what might have been his final contest with Cleveland.

This certainly isn't the first time Kevin Love's name has been mentioned to trade rumors, as Cleveland reportedly looked to trade him in each of the last two offseasons. Then the fun starts - well, officially and legally under National Basketball Association rules - and teams can begin courting King James to join them. I don't have an answer for you right now as far as that.... Sure, LeBron has mentioned in the past that he wants to transition more to an off-ball role as he gets older, but pairing him with a ball-dominant player like Westbrook doesn't seem to make much sense. "I think I'm still learning". General Manager Koby Altman has to decide whether to use the pick or trade it for an established player to make the Cavs better more quickly. My responsibility is to whatever team I play for.

LeBron's hand injury affected the games on the court, but it also affected wagering on those games, unbeknownst to pretty much anyone who had money riding on the outcomes of Games 2 through 4.

My example for pride might be a bit different, but bear with me.
