Apologies, I should have said, "As much as you think it is."

And I stand by that. The difference is negligible as of right now.

The difference between Kyrie and IT2 is not great, if Thomas returns at 100%. I like Jae Crowder. I would say, at least for this year, the gap is closing between the Cavs and Celts. If Gilbert gets out of his own way and stops pissing on his golden goose, the Cavs could still be an improved team in '18-'19 with that draft pick. If LeBron leaves, you have to think IT2 would probably leave as well and then they're going to be a playoff-bubble team at best.

Cavs are still definitely the favorites for another year, but should be a good ECF.

Looks like we might need to pump the brakes on this one. Thomas might have failed his physical with the Cavs and the trade could be nixed.

While I think Irving is much better of a player I don't really want to see Cleveland get another highend pick to help them restock. I want them to fall into the depths of hell for many many years

I'm not sure Ainge would add more. I also don't think IT2 could go back to Boston - that bridge has been burned. This will be interesting.

That's going to happen whenever James retires/moves on/falls off regardless of how many picks they get (or even if they had somehow managed to keep Irving happy).

As soon as James moves on after this season Cleveland is f'ed.. I just don't want them to be ahead of the game with a top 3 pick right after they make the ECF or NBA Finals.

F*ck Ohio

There's no guarantee that pick will be high.

Well, it's Brooklyn's pick, I think... so the odds are pretty good.

They won't be in the playoffs but they should be improved with Carroll and Russell and they won't be tanking. You might get a Pistons lottery pick special.


I kind of don't understand this new wrinkle to the trade. it seemed like pretty common knowledge that the Thomas injury was pretty serious. It's why they traded him.

That Brooklyn pick is top 5 bro. No way around it.

Brooklyn did add some nice pieces. The Bulls will be worse. Atlanta will suck. But yeah, the Nets will probably be bottom 5. How the heck does Boston, even after trading the Nets' pick, still have 6 1st rd picks over the next 2 years? Damn they are set up for a nice long run.
