You are spot on. The emphasis on having a title to validate you really took off after MJ, the rise of social media and the rise of talking heads I would say. Before that guys still moved around but not many top tier guys.

Your point is valid for a guy the Cavs already have too: Richard Jefferson. He looked finished before he got to Cleveland and now he's a key rotational piece.

I understand both sides. I drove from Cincy to Indy to watch the Heat play the Pacers when LBJ was there. I was not a fan of the Pacers but it was only a 1.5 hr drive and it beats paying for a flight to Miami. Myself and 5 of my friends bought the tickets months in advance because we all have wives and children so we had to plan accordingly. Thankfully the full roster for both teams played. I would've been pissed if LBJ and/or D Wade didn't play when we went there. But I also understand that the loyalty of the players is to their home fan base. You can't have it both ways though so it is what it is. Sidenote: Seeing LBJ throw those crosscourt passes in person was pretty amazing.

Yeah I know. I was just thinking about upgrading for a younger version of him. He's still effective but who knows when the big drop off might come for a guy his age!

It wouldn't hurt to take a flier on him. Like someone said above, if he proves to be too much of an issue, cut him. The preference would be a younger guy like Noel or just stick with Tristan and find a defensive minded/reasonably gifted on offense guy who can play and guard the 3 and 4 like Richard Jefferson did. Now that I am thinking this out while writing, they definitely need a younger guy that gives you what he gave them.

He might still be in the NFL if he would've agreed to try a position change. It's his life so it is what it is I guess.
