Tonight the B-Straw & Pauly G Show Road Trip traveled to Cleveland and New York in an NBA free agency edition. First they went to New York to speak to Marc Malusis, WFAN, about Melo and the Knicks free agency moves. He talked about Melo deciding to return to the team and other moves like they are working on with Pau Gasol. Then they flew to Cleveland to speak to Daryl Ruiter, 92.3 The Fan, about LeBron and if he will return to the Cavs or not. He says fans are eagerly waiting to hear and will be ready to celebrate if LeBron does decide to go to Cleveland. Ruiter thinks the Cavs are a playoff team with or without LeBron. He said the Cavs would be willing to give up Andrew Wiggins to go after Kevin Love if it meant they could get LeBron.
Orlando Alzugaray, 640 Sports Miami, joined The B-Straw & Pauly G Show to discuss NBA free agency and the Heat. He started out discussing the meeting between LeBron and Riley today in Vegas and his thought on Riley’s best approach to LeBron. He said that Miami has the clear advantage over Cleveland in the quest for LeBron in multiple ways from location to a level of class they are known for. Alzugaray said the winning component for teams is battle tested veteran players, not young guys. He said if LeBron leaves Miami, he can see Chris Bosh coming to play for the Rockets because he won’t stay on without LeBron. Alzugaray says LeBron is the big domino and he will set off a long chain of events once he has made his decision. He thinks LeBron will make his decision in the next 48 hours.
Ken Berger, CBSsports.com, joined The B-Straw & Pauly G Show to discuss NBA Free Agency. He said this is a very strange free agency period because usually by now the big guys have made their moves whereas this time the biggest players are still up in the air. He talked about LeBron’s best options and what might happen with them. Berger says LeBron is handling free agency the right way letting his agent talk to people and handle the business but he wishes he would speed up the process a little bit.
