What Just Happened – NBA Trade Deadline

The NBA is a business, it is ruthless and hypocritical. 

Players are expected to be “loyal” and stay with the team that’s drafted them but this generation is smarter with the two best players, LeBron controlling his destiny and Kevin Durant validating his move to Golden State with a Finals MVP and a championship. 

 

This particular shake up by the Cleveland Cavaliers shows the front office isn’t going to be held hostage and paralyzed by LeBron James’ moves.

It gives flexibility to look to the future, possibly without James, and also the chance to compete for a championship this season.

The Sheriff & The King: Can LeBron join Manning in winning titles for two different franchises?

After losing fellow stars Kevin Love & Kyrie Irving to injuries during the road to the Finals LeBron James gave a historic performance putting The Land within 2 wins of breaking the 50+ year championship drought before running out of steam. 

This time seems different. 

With first year head coach, Tyronn Lue, a healthy squad and valuable rest after a historic 10-0 start they are revitalized and looking for revenge.

 

Peyton Manning ended his career after 18 years at Super Bowl 50 with the Denver Broncos shocking the 15-1 Carolina Panthers.
