Crazy trade deadline indeed.

Wade going back to Miami

I didnt think they would keep Thomas. LA will be a good fit for him.

Lol. If he isn't bought out, he'll be backing up Ball. I'm sure he'll be pumped about that right before he hits free agency for the first time.

Pretty much, lol. Lakers have been struggling this season anyways so seems like a good spot for him to either gain momentum and make a come back or just wait it out for free agency. Not a bad franchise to be on either way.

I'm afraid the last month has ruined any chances of the Brinks truck backing up to him this summer.

I feel more confident in the Raps this year than ever.
The Cavs just went for it, knowing Lebron is winding down.
They have to sync up now while TO is firing on all cylinders.

as much as i believe LBJ is cancerous at times, the Cavs made great moves with this deal IMHO.
They unloaded a bunch of dead weight and got back 4 very solid players with the ability to pick up 2 more through buyouts.

a consumate vet in G hill who pairs well James when LEbron plays point. also a great 2 way player and atop the league in 3point %...and he has a ton of playoff experience.
then 3 young guns, ALL athletic and smart and good scorers.
Hood is amazing if healthy, NAnce is underated and a great roleplayer, and CLarkson has huge potential.

I'm tellin' ya, watch out if K Love comes back at full strength, This team got much more dangerous.
Now, will that translate to playoff success especially considering the young guys lack of experience? Hard to tell as of yet.
It wouldnt surprise me at all though if they still make it out of the EAST...

This is the year the Raptors beat the Cavs in the playoffs.  Raps bench depth is young, hungry and dangerous.
