Bickering Cavs blown apart in National Basketball Association

Lebron James, USA Olympic Men's Basketball player, listens to the national anthem prior to the start of the USA versus Dominican Republic exhibition game, July 12, 2012, at the Thomas and Mack Center, Las Vegas, Nev.

"He's the guy that is going to take us back to the promised land", Cavs general manager Koby Altman said, "so you want to put the right pieces around him".

The Boston Celtics (40-17) have lost two of their last three games including a 97-91 defeat to the Pacers in which Kyrie Irving scored 21 points in 8 of 18 shooting from the field and 3 of 3 from the free throw line. "I think we're going to be energetic, and we're just going to be fun again, and fun to watch, and fun to be around". With James in mind, Altman's trades reflect his attempts to stabilize the Cavaliers' defense while keeping a post-LeBron future intact by acquiring younger players more defensive-minded than the veterans they traded away.

Jordan Clarkson is a player that can play like a normal point guard, or he can share the court with Hill or Jose Calderon.

The Cavs had to surrender a 2018 first-round pick to the Los Angeles Lakers in the Clarkson/Nance deal, but it should be in the mid-20s.

The new-look Cavs, who did an overhaul of their roster at the trade deadline last week, shot lights out and beat the Celtics 121-99.

While Cleveland thoroughly outplayed the Celtics on Sunday, James said Boston - as well as a few other teams in the East - are still in better position to compete if the playoffs started today. So we got some hungry guys. So, we've got some catching up to do. He made the Eastern Conference All-Star team during the 2014-15 season, one of four starters to do so on the 60-win team. So, we've got some catching up to do. Hood is an excellent shooter and versatile playmaker while Hill is the deadliest three-point shooter in the game. He demands simple things, just to play hard.

Thomas: The guard whose fall from grace was as swift as nearly any you'll see became just another expiring contract, at $6.26 million. "But I don't want to stay in 11th place, and I don't want this organization to stay there".

"I had a lot of really good years here", Korver said.

"I know the guys that's here, they're very excited about this opportunity, and it's my job to keep them excited about being here". "All those things, we didn't have anybody to teach Lonzo anything, and hopefully IT can come in and do that". With the trade deadline fast approaching I thought there were too many moving parts that had to be addressed in order to make the Cleveland Cavaliers' roster better.
