as crazy as it sounds, if it was possible i'd trade kyrie instead of wiggins. im sure theyll make it work, but kyrie needs to improve in catch and shoot situations and as a passer. i dont see kyrie opening up things for lebron as much as allowing lebron to not have to carry the load as a scorer because kyrie is great at breaking down a defense by himself to score. the great thing if you can keep wiggins is it should allow you to hide kyrie on defense.

personally i think people are writing off wade too quickly (yes i know he looked terrible vs the spurs), but that uncertainty of wade's health obviously wore on lebron specifically playing almost 30 games without him this past regular season.

wouldnt have thought this was possible 4 years ago.

Kyrie will adjust his playing style. His problem is staying healthy. I'd trade neither and try and get some more talent next off-season.

I wouldn't trade him

The one thing the Cavs won't have is much of a bench to give these guys a breather.

Minnesota better take what they can get or lose out. At the end of the year K.Love is gone anyway.

I also think Kyrie will adjust. I think you keep Wiggins for his defensive potential.

I think he'll stay no matter what. But he needs to recruit Bosh to come back.

Maybe I see different, but that's a pretty good roster and not as thin as Miami.
Right now it's
Lebron, Kyrie, Waiters, Wiggins, Bennett, Haywood, Varejao, Thompson and Harris.

Not sure what the cap figure is but will probably fill it with some MLE vets.

I think they'll be able to get at least one other shooter between James Jones, Ray Allen, and Mike Miller.

Was watching the local news here in Houston and all the news is about Lebron. The Rockets off season plans just went to crap losing Lyn and probably Parsons and Carmello and all they can talk about is James to Cleveland. I am finding out this isn't a basketball city like I'm used to.

^ No Bosh, too. They offered him a monster deal, but he's taking a max deal to stay in Miami instead. Not the ideal offseason for Houston.
