Do you guys think Melo's portfolios will be kinda stagnant and hold securities for too long? laugh.gif

Dallas up to 5 is pretty speculative.

Indiana up from 18 to 13?

Coack K says that because he doesn't have to coach the Cavs and have his balls to the fire if they mortgage away their future and don't win anything with Love. Once they trade for Love (and give him a max contract), they are stuck with that team for 5 years. Actually, I think Lebron can leave and then the Cavs become Minnesota East. If its true that Minn. wants Wiggins/Bennet/Next year's number 1 and Waiters, I'd tell them to go phuck themselves.

Lest we forget, Love's never even made the playoffs. Don't get me wrong, guy is talented but who was the last "star" player to go from never making it out of the reg season to winning a chip the following year?

This is from Grantland and its pretty much where I come down on Love and Lebron:

"These are the obvious details everyone will mention when considering this hypothetical. But I would still stick with Wiggins, and my reasons are threefold:

1. I am not totally convinced Love is much more than an incredibly skilled fantasy player. He certainly might be, but how could we possibly know (based on experience)? Such a move would still be a gamble. He doesn’t protect the rim. He seems inordinately interested in numbers. And those aforementioned full-court outlet passes evaporate in June.

2. Up until the Big 12 tournament, Uncle Wiggily was pretty underwhelming at Kansas. He had a few games in which his shooting was tragic, especially off the dribble. But he has the body, and that’s what matters. His body is better than Love’s. He defends the whole floor. He’s an underrated glass chewer. And if we all concede that Wiggins has the potential to be a transcendent player, placing him alongside a bike-riding maniac like LeBron is the best-case scenario. If you throw 20-year-old W with LBJ, you will get the totality of whatever he has to offer (and then you re-sign him for life). LeBron will not let him bust.

3. The Cavs signed LeBron. He’s the best player in the world. Let him prove it. Enough of this pandering. No more roster additions. No more gaming the system to make things easier. This is the team. Play with this team. That letter James “wrote” to SI? Idiotic. It was totally idiotic. I’m not interested in constructed apologies or histrionic aphorisms. Just go do this."

Agree with point #3.

Pau Gasol comes pretty close. Got swept in the first round twice his whole career and then in his first full season with the Lake Show they win it all.

I'm sorry what? You shouldn't trade for the best team you can get because you have the best player in the world and you shouldn't make it too easy for him? Maybe you weren't watching nba in 2010 because that's pretty much why he left (because he couldn't win it all by himself). They even had mo Williams who was an all star the year before

LBJ not content playing with infinite ammo. He needs infinite lives too

Jesus Christ wouldn't make playoffs on some of these teams.
Also you forget that Wolves would make the playoff few times if they were in eastern conference
Although I like Pekovic, him and Love are not the best combination(defensively). Love doesn't have to play DPOY
defense, it would be enough if he plays decent. Just pair him with a rim protector and you have a
really good frontline. Even someone like Robin Lopez. If Cavs can get Love and a defensive center,
they have all the building blocks of a contender good team. Just pair Love with 2 defensive minded bigs.

Jesus seems to at least be equal to or better than Love on defense. Not to mention, he shouldered a 12 man roster to the promised land, retired, then came back better than ever

Ok, what is this garbage about the Bulls looking to trade Jimmy Butler and Taj Gibson for Kevin Love? Thibs is going to pop a blood vessel over losing all that defense...
