We traded Kyrie...

The guys we essentially got him for put up

3, 2, 0,0


Yet we have guys complaining about LeBron.

Well did get 8. As in the 8th pick in the draft.
Still more than they got out of Kyrie all playoffs...

Having to watch these classless Celtics fans and a smug Kyrie celebrate going to the finals

Having to watch that unbearable golden state roster sweep the Cavs with a finals record margin

Pick your poison folks...

Kyrie masked so many of our offensive deficiencies. This team doesn’t run plays.
Yes, utterly pedestrian offensive system, painfully reliant on LBJ driving and kicking. 33 yo LBJ can not do that all game, even 2 years ago he needed Kyrie to alternate with him.

Pin downs on the wing for Love to cut to the basket are pretty much the only other plays they run consistently.

Trades have not worked, chasing a solution to the Kyrie problem all season, the lights are too bright for Clarkson and Hood at this stage, no alternative ball handler/playmaker who has the balls to try and make a play for the team rather than throw up some junk.

The basketball fan in me just cannot allow myself to root for a team that doesn’t even try to play D



I cannot watch the WCF and see that fucking fire and intensity and come back to the Cavs and feel good. I refuse to stay along for this ride. At least we tried hard in 2010

How the actual fuck do you watch a guy go for 42/12/10 and conclude that the man is quitting? If you don't want people to call Cleveland fans ungrateful then don't make absolutely absurd claims.
I never claimed that. Well, I did in 2010, but I didn't now.

It's just that these LeBron fans (this dude who I quoted isn't a Cavs fan) act like they can say shit to Cleveland fans like we should all be on our knees for LeBron and owe him everything.

I'm thankful for the Championship, but let's not act like LeBron gives a shit about the Cavs.

Dude came back because it was a wise basketball decision, and it was the best thing he could add to his resume/legacy. He has no allegiance to this team, why should we have towards him?

Like I said, I'm grateful, but if he wants to leave, so be it. He doesn't owe me and I don't owe him.

Fuck all you guys that said LeBron gave up. He’s trying until the bitter end.
He is not going to quit this time. This way EVERYONE will applaud him for leaving since CLE just like the first time did not put a team around him. But who pushed for us to sign JR/TT to those contracts?

The difference being Boston has a coach, system and actually draft very well..

Getting Kyrie out of Cleveland for crap was the best way to end the Cavs reign.

It's almost unbelievable how badly the front office has wrecked this team. Just unreal -- we gave up Kyrie for players who made this team worse. We traded him for like seven different guys and not one can do a damn thing in a clutch playoff situation. Yet people are still defending the trade and blaming Lebron somehow!

LeBron has won a road game in something like 22 straight series, other than the Finals last year. So, win at home and come back to game 5 tied 2-2, and see what happens.
We won’t win both games at home. We might LOSE both games at home...
