One of the reasons Love wants out of Minny is that Minny wouldn't give him a full max. He seems to want a 5 year max this go around.

LeBron can sign a bunch of 1 year max deals because he could tear his ACL, miss a whole season, and still be worth a max. Love doesn't have that luxury.

Just Bennett wouldn't work salary wise. Either Waiters, Thompson or Varejao would've had to be included, and any one of those could be trumped by Golden STate or Phoenix or Chicago. Hell, If I was Minny, I would have gotten all of Brooklyn's picks from Boston.

Cavs "could've" waited and maybe gotten Love without Wiggins, As it turns out, they still got much better, so hard to hate the trade.

The Spiders were around before 1900 and they eventually became the Indians. But they were an NL team and historically bad, so I can imagine the Indians trying to distance themselves from the Spiders.

I was at the Game in 2002, which was probably the 2nd best one to attend in the last 40-50 years.

LeBron will only have 1 first game back. So for me, I would choose the Cavs.

However, this is an Ohio State website, so I'd figure that vast majority would pick the Game.

I agree that I would've played hardball with the TWOLVES in an attempt to not give up Wiggins.

OTOH, we kept the Memphis pick and didn't have to take on Martin's contract. We'll have lots of flexibility next offseason, so I can't hate the move, either.

He's obviously paying homage to David Lighty
 

Comment 27 Jul 2014

My hierarchy went

New Number

23

6

Would rather a fresh start, but as long as it isn't 6.

It will be amazing seeing all the old 23 jerseys. Mostly because the national media told me that everyone in Cleveland burned their old jerseys.

The graduation rate for football players is dead last in the conference, despite the fact that more players are opting for easier academic schedules.

Didn't someone write a long article about how Cal players "win at life" after OSU beat them last year?

Comment 26 Jul 2014

This is starting to remind me of when Bob Knight was fired from Indiana.

The incident that "got him fired" was relatively minor. A random IU student said, "Hey Knight" to him. Knight grabbed him. In a vacuum, it's not a big story. The kid deserved to be reprimanded, but Knight could've done it without grabbing him.

During the press conference, Miles Brand listed numerous similar, recent incidents. None of them were firing worthy, but when added together, it was the proverbial "straw that broke the camels back."

This incident here is not a fireable offense. But when he's already under suspicion, it might the final push.

You know who else is from Benedictine.

Rich Paul

Who I believe has been in the news regarding Ohioans coming back to Ohio from Florida.

Jut saying.

Comment 12 Jul 2014

The fact that he is great boon for OSU now is undeniable. He is probably the 3rd best recruiter in Ohio right now beside Urbs and Thad. His impact will be unmistakable.

That said, I am about 90% he goes to Akron if he went to college. Dru Joyce, Romeo Travis and Keith Dambrot were there.

Take away Monroe, and it's a deal. Not that I don't want Monroe, but I see no realistic way to add him amongst the other moves.

Kyrie and LeBron will be taking up over half the salary cap next year. I don't see enough room to sign Love. Lakers will have boku cap room.

His website had him photoshopped in a #6 Cavs jersey
