He's agreed to sign a 5 year 120+ million extension at the end of the year as well.

Looks like I was wrong on the part where he said he wouldn't immediately agree to sign an extension with any team.



This team should be unstoppable on offense but their defense will leave much to be desired. Can Irving/Love/Varejao all stay healthy and play 70+ games as well?

Yeah, you're pretty much spot on IMO with the concerns to consider this season. Also, as much as I like Love, 5 yr/120 mil?!?! Idk about that.

Agreed. Offense will be dynamite. But spurs will probably average 170 points per game against them in the finals.

They better hope that the new tv deal raises the cap immensely or they will face the same problem that Miami did. Irving just got extended for 90+ mil. Love at 120+ mil and Lebron getting a max every year. That's a good bit more money tied up in their big 3 than the Heat had tied up in theirs.


Will Dan Gilbert be willing to pay the luxury tax and the insanely steep repeater tax in order to keep Lebron happy and this team on top?

The deal is 24 mil/year, which would be suffocating now considering LBJ and Irving's deals, but will be more tolerable for the Cavs after the new TV deal/CBA deflates the value of these contracts, while still reasonable for Love to balance winning and money.

The Cavs were going to have to find more defensive pieces over these next couple of years anyway, Wiggins alone would not be the answer.

I don't think he is talking about losing Wiggins when he says but who was defense.


He's talking about 2 of the big 3 being liabilities on defense. Kyrie was rated as a worse defender than James Harden last year. Varejao is their current starting center and he has missed far more games than he has played over the past 4 years.

This is the Cavs we're talking about, one of the worst run franchises in the league. It was not outlandish to assume they would do that.

Anyway, have fun in Cleveland, Love. You can visit all the factories and... warehouses?

Meanwhile D-Rose, Noah, Taj, McD, Pau, Butler and Miriotic will be busy in a real city, dominating the rest of the conference while Kyrie struggles to learn how to do anything but hog the ball.

Executives dealing with these super stars don't deserve any credit. If you put a team like the Pacers together kudos, but these super teams are all player driven, it's clear at this point Riley was a body to the Heat. LeBron wanted to play with Wade and that was that. I guess they make moves to create cap space...

And Gilbert will pay the luxury tax if he needs to, didn't the Cavs become like $500 million more valuable or some insane number when LeBron came back?

I'm sorry but in no way is this Cavs team going past the Bulls in the playoffs. Let alone any team they would encounter in the finals. If Varejao gets hurt it's immediate exit for the Cavs. This would only have worked if by some miracle they would have signed Pau for veteran minimum AND if they brought in another forward capable of defending. This team will have a great offence no doubt but you can handicap half their scoring potential with one or two good defenders and you'll run circles around them on the other end of the court. Lebron is facing almost the exact same problem as with the Heat last year. And not only that but the team will get no good picks any more and there is no cap space left for the next 2-3 years. Unless Lebron decides to play for 500k/year suddenly whilst Irving and Love rake in top dollar.

Not mad at all, I'm glad the Eastern conference finally has more than one or two teams that are actually competitive. LeBron going back to the Cavs gave way more balance to the conference.

Bulls have a way better shot against this Cleveland team then they would have if LeBron stayed in Miami and the roster got re-tooled.

This team will dominate in the regular season, will probably get 55+ wins feasting on the weak eastern conference, but honestly, they aren't winning a championship this season. They probably won't even make the Finals if they meet a healthy Bulls squad. They will probably be a bigger threat to win it 1-2 years down the road because right now, their squad is full of perennial losers.

Kyrie Irving, Kevin Love, Dion Waiters and Tristan Thompson have all never made the playoffs and will be playing big roles on the team. They'll probably need 1-2 years in the playoffs to learn winning basketball. They need more rotation players with playoff experience if they want a real shot at a championship this year.

ouch....

To you folks getting hyped up by this Cavs team... You do realize the team has no depth, no defense, 1st year head coach, a core that has no experience playing together, and little playoff experience?

And you expect this team to win the finals immediately?

He's agreed to sign a 5 year 120+ million extension at the end of the year as well.

Looks like I was wrong on the part where he said he wouldn't immediately agree to sign an extension with any team.



This team should be unstoppable on offense but their defense will leave much to be desired. Can Irving/Love/Varejao all stay healthy and play 70+ games as well?

I believe I tried telling you that this deal wouldn't work unless there was an agreement for longer contract.

who would play defense on a cit team that isn't going to accomplish anything? Everyone will step up cause now there a championship caliber team and they will be at least ok on defense.

and no depth? Thompson, Miller, Marion, Allen, some scrubs & they can sign another solid bench player

They will get Marion and Allen

Love is actually not bad in team defense. 1 V 1 in Iso, he's terrible but in team defense he does OK and lets not forget rebounding is defense as well.

How many players on the Spurs are actually good individual defenders?

Plus, when you have Verejoa and Lebron opposed to Pekovic and Brewer it makes a lot of difference.

I think Love may be a bit more motivated to play Defense being on the Cavs with LeBron instead of the Wolves where he was just playing for himself and not the playoffs, could just be wishful thinking. People acting like Wiggins had them as the best Defense in the league and now trading him for Love made the Cavs the worst.

Cavs fans here, can you list the pros and cons of Kevin Love and what can he bring to Cleveland?

Pros:
#1-Great shoot for his position.
#2-Great rebounder.
#3- Big time hustling type, plays hard.
#4- Will force opposing PFs to follow him out of the lane, opening it up for LeBron or Kyrie.
#5- If penetration from Kyrie or LeBron is stopped, they dish it out to Love.
#6- Under rated passer, very good overall but has excellent transition passes (from one end of the court to the other)
#7- tough, willing to play hurt and doesn't mind mixing it up.
#8- Very smart player
#9- Always around the basket, gets a lot of tip ins.
#10- Still only 25, so he has several prime years left.

Cons-
#1- Not very good in isolation defense.
#2- Sometimes can be a real complaining beotch if things aren't going right.
#3- While not as bad as some make it sound, he's not a great post up player, but he has been progressing.
#4- Not a great athlete but much better than he was when he came into the league.
#5- Not fast enough to be good in transition.

I think his defense suffered because he was just so fed up with the Wolves that he stopped caring toward the end. He's never going to be a great defender, he's not athletic enough or long enough but he can be passable. I think LeBron will make sure he is at least giving it his best effort.

It's a good move for them. Before those two can contribute (if they ever would) to a championship team LeBron would probably start declining. Plus they get Love who just entered his prime and has several prime years left. So for one POTENTIAL star, one player who looks like a bust at this point, and a future protected pick they get the best PF in the game at the beginning of his prime years. Might end up that the Wolves end up with two busts and a crap draft pick and the Cavs get two championships.

or, smart move would be stay as they are, have a decent chance at a championship this year with wiggins contributing defense and transition, bennett may get in shape.
then next year sign love anyway and win a few championships while love and lebron are dominant, then win a few more while kyrie, waiters, bennett, thompson, and wiggins are in their primes.

bump this in 4 years when the cavs are washed up like the 2013-14 heat, and wiggins is one of the best in the league and bennett is a solid role player.

They have no shot at a championship this year with Kyrie+Wiggins+LeBron. Maybe in two years, but LeBron is going to be 30 in 4 months, he might be near prime for a couple more years but after that?

I talked about siging Love next year a million phucking times on here and why it won't work so I'm not going to rehash. Short version is it won't work financially for the Cavs with the cap rules. They get him now, it changes how the contract works with the cap. If they sign him straight up FA you are talking ~ $22m for Lebron (who will be looking for an extention at that point so might cost more), $24M for Love, $15m for Kyrie. That's $61m for just those three. Now, because Love is traded the Cavs can use the Bird rule to sign him , if he is signed as FA they can't. It gives them a ton more flex with the roster if they trade for him.
