Default Re: See Cavs fans? This is how you make a big move

I'm not sure what GOBB is boasting about. The last 25 years the 76ers haven't done shit either just like the Cavaliers.

Championships the Last 25 Years

Cavaliers: 0
76ers: 0

Finals Appearances the last 25 Years

Cavaliers: 1
76ers: 1

...your organization did exactly the same thing ours did. They didn't build a competent team around your once in a lifetime player wasting his prime.

Well, all I have to say is I hope Bynum signs and extension or resigns ith the 76ers. Otherwise you got pretty much nothing.

And I'm being honest. I really do hope Bynum stays in Philly. I'd like them to keep getting better. It was fun watching them last season and to see Evans finally develop out into a unique guard.

I can see Bynum leaving. I know they have his bird-rights but the 76ers' core blows and Philly is a crappy city.

I know but some cavs fans like delonte wouldn't have given up Andy v at the risk of Bynum being a rental. To me that's crazy. Sixers could lose bynum and recurve nothing but I applaud the risk because Sixers were stagnant with Iggy. Atleast u have three options. Resign Bynum. Be bad and play lottery. Use cap
Space and sign another notable free agent. If Sixers lose Iggy vucevic harkless for nothing it's worth the risk of having Bynum for a year ad hoping he resigns. Some cavs fans weren't willing to risk Andy v in that manner and that's nuts.

A small market team like the Cavs which is going to have trouble holding onto it's stars if it's not a contending team needs to be aggressive at times. Building slow and steady will be great, unless Kyrie comes up on FA and decides its too slow and flees. A lot of that is alleviated if you have a better team and not relying on everyone to get better at the same time.

Iguodala has lived on the trading block and he and Turner are somewhat redundant. Bynum is the 2nd best center in the league. The Sixers didn't even have to give up their very solid center. And the worst that happens is Bynum doesn't stay or maybe gets injured. There is no margin for error because there can't be any error.



I'm not gonna talk about the Cavs, as I haven't been following much this Summer and have literally not been home for 2 months. But it doesn't sound as tho the Cavs would have had to give up..anything at all. Who the hell is Waiters?

They go shopping in Free Agency. Not all Stars can go to Miami, LA or NY.

I really think Bynum will resign though, Philly is close to his home in NJ and they can offer a whole lot more money than any other team.
