Love traded to CLE for Wiggins, Bennett, Pick

Recommended Posts

Wiggins is becoming the most overrated player in NBA history.

Potential is there but two years from now at min.

Some of you are crazy, this is a great trade for both teams. There is no guarantee that Wiggins will EVER be as good as Love is right now, Bennett has been a huge disappointment, and the first rounder they gave up will be at the end of the round anyways.

Wiggins, an unknown, is the only big piece you give up for one of the top players in the league? You do that all day unless you're rebuilding.

That being said, I still like our chances.

I can't wait for this to blow up in Cleveland's face. In a perfect world, Lebron breaks a hip and Wiggins turns into an elite player.

If LeBron is playing GM, and this fizzles, then it will cause his mental game to deteriorate. Would give us a chance if we face them postseason

Love was gonna leave anyways. Wolves got about the best they could have hoped for in this deal. 

 

Cavs got an insane scoring, shooting, rebounding PF to play with Bron. 

 

Win win all around

I like this deal for both sides. Well truthfully I hate it because it makes Cleveland stronger, but in terms of each team's individual goals it makes sense. With Love, James, and Irving you have another big three created. Love is a better post player than Bosh ever was and a better traditional PF with rebounding skills. Irving is a more traditional PG and I think with having more natural scorers on the team he's going to be able to spread the ball around more and not rely so much on his ability to create his own shots. I think, as much as Wade was better than Irving at the time LeBron signed with the Heat, this is a better trio from an on paper standpoint. Nobody having to play out of position and guys with more traditional roles. LeBron gets his first star big to play with, as Bosh is/was that hybrid kind of big that isn't exceptional under the rim and with his back to the basket like Love. That's going to be a dangerous addition in set offense. Not only will this team be able to run the break, but having the ability with two shot creators like Irving and LeBron in sets to free up Love is going to be formidable.

 

The haul for the Wolves is fantastic. Kevin Love wasn't going to sign there. Everybody knew that. The fact that they can get two first overall picks with tremendous upside is great. Plus the story of reuniting the Canadian prep stars is a good look for Minnesota being a state that borders Ontario and Manitoba. It's going to be interesting to see how much that impacts the Wolves presence in Canada. If anything makes it easier to lose Love from an immediate competition standpoint, it's the growth that the fanbase might have from adding the Canadian element.

 

Overall it's a move that makes sense for both sides. Cleveland is not going to "waste" their window of LeBron while waiting for the young kids to ripen up to be ready to compete and Minnesota gets that opportunity to have an instant rebuild. It's a pretty ideal situation for both sides. It made too much sense not to happen.

It's debatable on whether Love or Bosh is a better PF.  I think Bosh though was probably better suited to play with Lebron because he has the ability to play outside the lane and slash to the rim with the ball in his hands.   Lebron benefits offensively when the lane isn't clogged by his own teammates.  All in all.....Cleveland is a good team, but they're big 3 is not as good as Miami's was.
