But we can give MKG 3-5 yrs and say it's okay? Just brag about how good of a defensive player he is and could become. Same for Kemba and Zeller.

Lets just trash Wiggins bc he's not wearing purple and teal.

#FlippingStupid

He's saying it will take Wiggins 2 years AT MINIMUM for him to start polishing his game and becoming a good player. He's not saying he only deserves 2 years.

All rookie players deserve at least 3 years to start producing well. MKG started so young and so raw that he deserves a little more then that, IMO.

The NBA may block this trade if there is an extension agreement in place for Love.

Right now all they have to go on is Kevin Loves word which, as we saw with Dwight Howard and the Lakers, means nothing.

They will need to find a handwritten contract or money being paid under the table to blatantly circumvent the salary cap to nail the Cavs a la Joe Smith and the T Wolves years ago.

I get that but its insanely stupid to say hes the most overrated player in nba history. Esp when he hasnt even play a real game yet. Wiggins' potential is off the roof. Kid could be something really special.

I know the op would be drooling if wiggins was wearing purple n teal.

gotta disagree with a lot of you here- Love is a statistical MONSTER

if you have a chance to pair a superstar that fits perfect with LeBron (who is in his prime now- maybe not in 3 years when Wiggins is finally good) you do it.

Cleveland lucked out with the number one the last two years anyway.

Also I'm obviously a Hornets fan first and foremost, but I got to admit it would be cool seeing LeBron win one for Cleveland.

Love is a stat monster no doubt. But his defense is terrible. Theres a reason why he have never been in the playoffs before.

But its a match made in heaven to play with LBJ. Lebron will help make Love look a little better on defense.

Love is a 20/10 guy, a great passer, and a good shooter. Bennett is so far a bust and Wiggins may...May, be elite on day but for now he is a great athlete with good defense and a questionable shooter. Advantage Love

David Kahn could not have done a better job at putting a terrible team around Love

Hearing that they could if they find out that a deal for Love was already in place.
