What should have they done? Piss off Lebron?
When you want to keep your franchise player, you unfortunately have to pay his buddies.
The Cavs also had an extreme lack of big men.

And by the way, Kenneth Faried got the same kind of money that offseason.
Then the likes of Mozgov got huge deals.
TT's contract isn't that bad by today's Nba salary standards.

In the end, Thompson was a huge piece of our championship run and you don't regret overpaying him at all.

This. Atleast with Crowder, they can hide LeBron and play him as a free safety.

They will test several lineups. I think Wade will eventually start and Crowder will be the 3 while LeBron will be the 4. Love played center early in his career, that will be interesting.

I don't see anything in the link about that.

The only reason I see Lue doing this is if Wade is starting.

So I think we see...

Rose
Wade
James
Crowder
Love

Otherwise it would be

Rose
Smith
James
Love
Thompson
I think JR stays in the starting line-up. The bolded above doesn't have an outside 3pt threat, so there'd be much less spacing.

IT/Rose
JR/Wade
Lebron/Korver/RJ
Crowder/Green/Frye
Love/Thompson

This lineup is flat out lethal offensively
