You aren't a cavs insider so stop acting like you have the final say on what is a viable rumor or not
I need to "calm the hell down" after you just made that post?

Everyone was reacting as if it was a done deal, which people who may not be familiar with the Cavs' reliable beat writers probably should assume after reading that article. I was simply pointing out that, not only is the source questionable at best, the proposed trade rumor makes zero sense from a standpoint of salary.

I have no problem with people posting rumors like this on ISH, but don't get all bent out of shape when people question the source material. There's probably a good reason you haven't heard anything about this from anywhere else.

And, I am not an "insider." But, I do know some people who are insiders. So, I guess that gives me some access to insider information occasionally. I haven't heard anything about this. That doesn't mean it isn't true, but considering Amico, Llloyd and Windhorst haven't even touched on it yet tells me we should probably take it with a grain of salt.

That's all. Don't get your panties in a bunch over nothing. No one is attacking you.

Chris Sheridan this time..

And again the speculation is Haywood, Waiters and picks..

No offense, but this one might be worse than the one in the OP. Isn't TSpence the guy who was trolled by a poster on Realgm a couple months ago and he ran with some wild rumor that made no sense regarding the Cavs?

I think it was Waiters, Wiggins, Thompson and a pick for Love and Barea. lol

there's one tiny little thing you forgot. the league owned the Hornets. so they had a say whether to trade CP3 or not. so unless the league owns any of these teams in trade talks with the Cavs, i can't see how you can possibly cry about the league not stopping any of the trades. even if they wanted to, what could they legally do?

The other thing he forgot to mention is that the Cavs have constructed this roster by signing free agents and making completely fair trades... unless someone is actually going to sit here and say Minnesota made out poorly with Wiggins, Bennett and a first for a guy they were losing in a year anyway.

There have been no "dirty tricks" here. We've given up quite a lot.

Only an idiot in the front office would say...

"Well, the best player on the team now has an adequate roster around him. Let's give away all of our remaining cap space, trade pieces, trade exceptions and draft picks. We don't want this team to potentially be too good, after all. The people who don't like James will think it unfair to continue adding quality pieces, and I agree wholeheartedly with them."

Didn't Dan Gilbert propose the Chris Paul veto and now he has potentially the most stacked team in the league? Double standards for Dan Gilbert don't apply.

Which the league stopped for the Lakers that year, even though they said they gave the Charlotte GM full control.

Look back at the trade now. If they took the Laker trade they'd be in WAY better shape. More assets, more picks, more everything.

Thanks Stern!

Slightly irritated that good trade for both sides was vetoed for "basketball reasons" for the first time in the history of the NBA.
