Orangeball: Bron Bron goes to Los Angeles

I didn't realize this but there's only 6 active players in the NBA with an MVP award. 4 of them play on the Cavs and Warriors.

Isaiah Thomas is good but he's the biggest defensive liability in the game.

Apparently it's Thomas, Crowder and picks for Irving. That seems really underwhelming for Cleveland.

Isaiah was the reason Boston was good last year. The difference between him and Kyrie isn't massive enough. And if he leaves in two years for the Knicks you look stupid.

I mean I'll believe the trade when I see it. Boston has been close to acquiring a lot of players the past few months and then it magically falls through because Bostons GM refuses to give up anything, then criticizes the other team for wanting too much.

The trade is happening. Cleveland should still win the east rather easily. Isaiah and Rose in the backcourt is really good. They'll make up for Kyrie's offense no problem. Boston's depth is kinda shitty now. They don't have much after their starting 5. They have Kyrie/Smart/Hayward/Morris and Horford and then not much else. It Tatum is good then their in better shape

Clevelands problem is that between Rose and IT, they don't have anyone who can defend Curry in the finals.

Crowder would probably guard Curry. He's a really good defender

If Crowder guards Curry, it means both PGs are off the floor. Who's providing the scoring besides Lebron? Not sure if you can bank on Kevin Love being the next best option.

Kyrie was a decent defender when he wanted to be and did a good job overall on Curry.

You could still have Rose on the floor. He'd guard Thompson I guess. Then you'd have Crowder on Curry, LeBron on Durant, Love on Draymond, etc.

I don't expect anybody to beat the Warriors though, so it's whatever

Klay has at least 4 inches on Rose. You pretty much are forced to put IT on Curry and hope he can score with him.

Well that's why nobody is beating the Warriors. There's too many matchup problems.

Boston should sign Wade after he gets bought out. Their backcourt after Irving is really bad now.

Because it was an amazing deal. You fuck up Boston's depth, lose nothing at the PG position and get a top five pick for next year. I would have easily made that deal if I was Cleveland.

No I mean, why would you do that if you knows he's hurt and might miss a chunk of the season or possibly have the trade voided? It's like they didn't know he was hurt at all. Weird.

They can probably undo the trade if he failed the physical. It's been done in pretty much every sport though I would imagine never with a trade of this magnitude.

Then again this is the NBA where Chris Paul was a Laker for like 15 minutes.

According to ESPN’s Zach Lowe, Milwaukee will offer guards Khris Middleton and Malcolm Brogdon to the Cavs in exchange for their all-star point guard, and would be willing to include a first-round pick as well to sweeten the pot. In case the deal for Thomas falls through

Jesus Christ......you add Irving to Milwaukee and I really like that team.

Giannis is going to be the league's next best player when Lebron declines in like 5-7 years. I'm not sure if Milwaukee will be able to lock him up long term but him, Kyrie and Parker is a sick top 3. Thon Maker has some potential too.

Dwight Howard might be the only center in the league without any 3 point range. If you don't have it now you're out of the league.

I don't know if you remember but New Mexico State had a guy named Sims Bhullar or something. Guy was like 7'3 and 350+ pounds. He couldn't hit a shot in college outside of 5 feet. A video of him at a Kings workout was released and he was draining 3s.

Of course I remember Sim, dude is a Canadian haha. Yeah, he's a monster, he has a brother too. Is he still with the Kings? I don't think he has the mobility to be a player in the NBA. DeRozan has no three game at all, and he still averaged 27 last year. Wonder what he'd look like if he could incorporate the 3.
