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.

LOYALTY – The lie of sports leagues

If there was any example that the call for loyalty goes both ways it would’ve been in this opportunity.

Isaiah did everything right. The fans loved him, he played hurt both emotionally and physically.

He played through a hip injury only after leading his team to not only a series win against the Chicago Bulls but also the Washington Wizards this was after he lost his sister in a car accident.
