    definitely, just don't think it changes the calculus too much. it was a 5 game romp where the Cavs were only competitive in 3, and that was with Klay really struggling from the field in most games and Dray having a historically miserable scoring season.

    that'd prolly be enough by itself but the Dubs should be even better by adding roleplayers that fit their system perfectly in Casspi and Young. Cavs, Rox, and Spurs have a puncher's chance but Golden State has to be huge title favorites again.

    i don't disagree. but i never start doing my championship equity equations till maybe halfway in the season when injuries/trades/systems/role player surprises all begin leading somewhere.

    he'll help, but unless someone comes out of nowhere, or the cavs turn into a magical machine of their own, or draymond punches KD in the face and breaks an orbital then i don't see them losing anything.

    Spurs would've won if it wasn't for Zaza injuring Kawhi

    i wonder how much more they could realistically get. Both teams have to know this is the best package CLE will get for Kyrie.

    Would be a bigger disaster for Boston if it doesn't go through, though. That might give Cleveland enough leverage to ask for another pick or something

    Did Cleveland not know IT has injury concerns when they made this trade?

    I'm assuming the issue is where he is at in the healing process, CLE must have thought he was further along

    ^that or they have doubts about him long-term

    Unless they don't think he's ever playing again they should just do it. I'm thinking it's a leverage play

    i mean they basically played chicken with the C's and got another pick for nothing. swung for better, missed, but at least they're walking away with something extra.
