We Were Marching A Slow Death — Cavs GM Altman


Cleveland completely changed its look — and perhaps its chances of winning a championship this season — on Thursday with a stunning sequence of deals.

By making the moves, the Cavaliers not only got more athletic but also improved their backcourt to take a bit of the pressure off LeBron. It only really matters what Cleveland's "real" general manager thinks. However, I wished they were able to move PF/C Tristan Thompson but maybe in the future that can happen.

"We wanted to be patient and we wanted to see this thing work out", Altman said. A lot of action. He has been part of a special group of teammates on and off the court for us, as his impacts were both tangible and intangible.

The Minnesota Timberwolves put up big numbers offensively, but they couldn't stop one man in Cleveland on Wednesday-LeBron James.

Cleveland could afford to go on with him, so they sent Thomas, Channing Frye and one of its 2018 first-round picks to the Los Angeles Lakers. Maybe they'll even end up pushing the Toronto Raptors and Celtics for one of the top two seeds in the Eastern Conference.

Powered by the 30 points of Kyle Korver and another triple-double from LeBron James, the undermanned Cleveland Cavaliers managed to halt their frustrating six-game road losing streak with a 123-107 victory over the Atlanta Hawks at Philips Arena on Friday night.

Crowder was also a major disappointment after the Cavs anticipated him being a starter and a defensive standout.

The Cavs will receive guard George Hill from the Kings in exchange for guard Iman Shumpert. He said he knew Wade's heart was always in Miami. Love you my guy!

On paper, the Cavs made good moves.

Jordan Clarkson and Larry Nance Jr. are going to be wearing number eight and number 24 in Cleveland, allegedly in homage to Bryant. Perhaps the most immediate impact we'll see from Clarkson will be on the defensive end of the floor where he is an huge upgrade over both Thomas and Wade.

ESPN was first to report the dizzying run of deals.

The Cavaliers scored 43 points in the first quarter, but then went nearly six-and-a-half minutes without scoring in the fourth and lost for the 14th time in 21 games.

"I said is this fair to Dwyane?"

If I'm a Cavaliers fan this morning, I'm actually generally excited in seeing this new NEW team-Cavs 2.0-and will not miss the lack of energy and effort on defense, questionable and selfish ball-handling and bad shot selections by some of the departed. I like it here. "It hasn't been as planned, but I definitely want to be here". The Cavs are now just 7-13 since Christmas. Despite typically coming off the bench, Clarkson could potentially start in this Cavaliers lineup with Hill and Jose Calderon as stable, veteran backups. I think it's going to be great for him.

Receiving Clarkson, Nance and Hood adds youth to the Cavs - they are all 25 years old.
