Some of these comments are mind blowing. You guys know that Westbrook is Kevin's best friend right??? It's pretty well known.
The Cavs (GriffBron the GMs) made a strategic move for Love and IF they win a ring this year it will be huge for everyone involved including Love and they will be able say that it was the right move and who could argue with them? That being said Love does NOT fit this team on the court with Blatt's system (Thompson actually fits better) and he definitely does not fit off the court nor does he have any interest in doing so.
Kevin and Kyrie are good buds but he's a west coast hipster who doesn't like to work out he's not a get down and dirty old school work your ass off both on the court and in the gym guy like Bron. Why do you think Waiters was such a horrible cancerous fit and a guy who plays the exact same type of game was a perfect fit (JR Smith) it's all because of personality and chemistry.
The only way they save this deal is if GriffBron can get Love to agree to a sign and TRADE deal and bring in one of Bron's guys from another team in the trade otherwise long term it is going to be very painful watching Wiggins be a perennial All-Star and Love putting up 25 & 10 somewhere else.
If Love opts out and just leaves without a sign and trade deal the Cavs will be in a really bad salary cap position (needing to re-sign both Thompson and Shumpert) and they won't be able to afford to get someone of Wiggy or Love's caliber to replace them. So yes a ring this year makes the deal a good one short term but long term if there isn't a sign and trade it will go down as a terrible trade giving up Wiggins. They need a deal that would send Love back to the west coast and bring a guy like LaMarcus Aldridge or even a DeAndre Jordan to Cleveland in return. No matter how you slice it though Wiggins on this team for the next 10-15 years would have been incredible.
