You’ve seen the sardonic messages splashed all over social media. Everyone is calling LeBron James the best GM in the NBA, based largely on his ability to wrench Kevin Love from Minnesota, which instantly imbues the Cavaliers with three All-Stars.
With Kevin Love headed to Cleveland, let’s take a look at the 5 favorites to win the 2015 NBA title.
Kevin Love has finally been traded. With the deal in place, let’s take a look at the top five starting lineups in the NBA…
Since this has become LeBron’s summer of love we can turn this into a campy double-entendre, with the lights squarely on Kevin Love, who is supposedly LeBron’s 7-foot bridge to bringing the Larry O’Brien Trophy to Cleveland.
Glenn Moore, Cleveland.com, joined the Triple Threat to talk about LeBron James returning to Cleveland. He said the comparison of him returning to a lover he once spurned is over blown. He said LeBron never liked being in Miami that much and Cleveland is home to him. Moore thinks that Cleveland should go for a trade with Wiggins for Kevin Love because he is more of a sure thing than Wiggins. He thinks Cleveland really is the best place for LeBron James and where he is at in his career and life right now.
Tonight the B-Straw & Pauly G Show Road Trip traveled to Waco and Minneapolis. First they spoke to David Smoak, AM 1600, about Baylor football and Robert Griffin III. He talked about what RG3 has meant to the program and the progress of the program in general. Smoak talked about Baylor planning to honor RG3 with a statue. Then they flew to Minneapolis to talk to Judd Zulgad, ESPN 1500, about the Kevin Love sweepstakes. He said it would be tricky to work things out for Love to go to the Rockets.
John Dickinson, 98.7 The Game, joined The B-Straw & Pauly G Show to discuss NBA trade rumors in the Road Trip. He said he had not heard about a Lin or Parsons trade with the Warriors. He said a Kevin Love trade has potential to happen. Dickinson thinks getting Love would really boost the team up the ranks. He discussed some other elements the team has been looking to improve as well.
Mario Elie joined the B-Straw & Pauly G Show at Man Fest. He talked about how the Spurs have stepped up against the Heat. Elie doesn’t think that Melo is the right fit for the Rockets and believes Kevin Love or Chris Bosh would fit much better with the team. He thinks Harden can improve if he really commits to getting better at defense. He thinks LeBron will stay with the Heat but hope that Bosh will decide to leave to join the Rockets. Elie hasn’t been asked to work with the Rockets but would definitely be open to the offer.
Tonight’s B-Straw & Pauly G Show Road Trip traveled to Minneapolis. Judd Zugald, ESPN 1500, talked about the situation with Kevin Love and the Timberwolves. Zugald said the Timberwolves definitely have to trade Kevin Love and Flip Saunders needs to make sure he gets the “best package” possible for him. He thinks Love might end up at the Lakers but the opportunities are pretty all over the place right now. He said if Kevin Love is still on the roster at the start of the next season then he’s been “held hostage.”
