Former Knicks now on Cavs
What James has done this postseason is nothing short of remarkable, even with the Eastern Conference still not as strong as the West. The Cavs swept Boston in the first round but lost Love to a season-ending shoulder injury. They eliminated Chicago in Round 2 in six games despite All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving suffering both a foot and knee injury in the series, forcing him to the sidelines for two games against Atlanta. Irving returned on Tuesday, finishing with 16 points and five assists in 22 minutes, as Cleveland improved to 12-2 in the playoffs.
The Cavsí Big Three was supposed to be James, Irving and Love, but in this postseason itís been James with any combination of Tristan Thompson, Matthew Dellavedova, Iman Shumpert and Smith. The latter two were Jackson castoffs, deemed unfit for the triangle offense and the new culture Jackson is trying to establish in New York. Fine. But the fact that Jackson got only a 2019 second-round pick in return is laughable.
