LeBron James was against trading Kyrie Irving, report says

LeBron James was against trading Kyrie Irving, report says

Even casual National Basketball Association fans are aware that the mighty Cleveland Cavaliers have been struggling pretty bad of late.

His latest lesson came Monday night, when Bell was thrust into the starting lineup in Golden State's 118-108 win over the Cavaliers after not playing in the previous two games.

It says much for the mediocrity of the Eastern Conference-and something about their form before Christmas-that the Cavaliers can lose eight of their last ten games and still be in third behind the Celtics and Raptors. "I liked the way we played in the first half". Steph, I don't know what he was doing in the first half...

The Cavs remain a work in progress, an incomplete picture. "And for us to stand here even though we're trying to be divided right now by somebody, today is a great day for people to realize how America was built and how we all have to stand united in order to be at one".

Tyreke Evans recorded a 15-point, 12-assist double-double for the Grizzlies, who beat the Lakers for the second time in three meetings this season and for the seventh straight time at home.

"Several prominent players, speaking on condition of anonymity to ESPN, expressed doubt that the problems - an aging roster, defensively challenged personnel and a glut of redundant role players - could simply be worked out through patience and a chance to coalesce when fully healthy".

"This is a hard year for our team", James said. But we have to figure it out. Through 42 games, which included a three game stint coming off the bench before swapping with Dwyane Wade, Smith is having one of the worst seasons of his career. How often does any franchise have the best player in the world on its team?

No 'Support' For Kurdish YPG In Afrin — US Military
According to the political observer, "only Syria, Russia and Iran can choke the Turkish-US-SDF forces in the north and the east". The Defense Department's language is nearly word for word what the USA policy toward Iraq was during former President George W.

Fired Engineer Says Google Discriminated Based on His 'Male Gender,' 'Caucasian Race'
He claims he was "chastised for attempting to stand up for Caucasian males and his conservative views" by Google's HR department. The company is 69% male and 56% white, although Google does not report how many describe themselves as "conservative".

Maybe if the Cavs trade the Nets first round pick they acquired in exchange for Kyrie Irving this summer, they can land that much-needed second star, but how many teams are going to want to help out the Cavaliers.

Following Monday's fourth straight loss, James said he was pleased with the team's effort.

Coach Tyronn Lue was aware of the reports, and joked that the comments didn't come from any players he knows. I've seen where people said 'sources say, ' and I look down the roster and I don't see no guy named 'sources, ' so we got to talk to [general manager] Koby [Altman] about getting another position or something. "We believe in Swish and we have to keep going to him". When the Celtics went on their 16 game winning streak, they went on a stretch where they lost six out of eight game. Derrick Rose could be back as early as Thursday against Orlando after being sidelined since November 7 with a severe ankle injury. The Cavs are expected to be an aggressive suitor ahead of the February 8 NBA Trade Deadline as the likes of Paul George and DeMarcus Cousins could be made available. Of course, with James potentially becoming a free agent after this season, there's major risk involved.

LeBron James #23 of the Cleveland Cavaliers talks with Dwyane Wade #9 during the second half against the Boston Celtics at TD Garden on January 3, 2018 in Boston.

Whatever happens, Lue is confident his team will thrive.

Until then, however, Cleveland has to be second-guessing itself, unlike James who was absolutely certain that he wanted Irving to stay in the first place. However, if he wins a championship, he'll likely feel inclined to return to try to repeat.
