The Cavaliers make insane moves in the NBA trade deadline

By: Carlos Lassalle

The time has arrived for the Cleveland Cavaliers to rise up as the warriors they truly are! The Cavs have struggled all season, from bad team chemistry and roster issues to multiple rumors of trades and changes in the roster before the All Star Weekend. The team, as a whole, was a complete mess and was destroyed in every area possible. The offense was great, but inconsistent most nights and the defense was literally one of the worst in the league, which made the “championship” contending team look worse than what many expected from the summer and beginning of the season. However, everything for the Cavaliers changed on February 8th. The Cavs front office recognized how bad the team was and they realized that if they want LeBron James to stay in the team and not leave in the summer, they have to make moves now! The Cavaliers traded nearly the entire team; they traded Isaiah Thomas and Channing Frye to the Lakers for Larry Nance Jr. And Jordan Clarkson, they traded Iman Shumpert to the Kings for George Hill, and Jae Crowder to the Utah Jazz for Rodney Hood. These were the main trades that the Cavs made to rebuild their roster, they traded other players like Dwyane Wade to the Heat for a 2nd round pick to the Miami Heat and Derrick Rose to the Utah Jazz. The Cavs are now much younger, stronger, athletic, and are overall a better team since the trades took place. The offense is superior and consistent, including the defense, which is better. The only situation at the moment is when Kevin Love comes back to the starting lineup, the team will get even stronger, as they have drastically missed his level of play of offense and rebounding. The time is now for the Cavs, as their motto says, “All for One, One for All”.
