They should have committed to the tear down a year ago, or at least by this offseason. They should have been looking for young assets & picks for CP3, not rotation players.

It's better late than never, but delay has cost this franchise dearly.

Doc needs to go--this needs to be rebuilt from the ashes.

I wonder what somebody would pay for the franchise today. I bet it would be a lot less than $2.2B.

Stick a fork in this year's MVP race. It's done.

All worthy competitors please return for another lively competition next year.

Before the season began there was a lot of talk about how wide-open the MVP race was and that it was more unpredictable than usual.
Instead, MVP race is over by the all-star break.
Factors include Kwhy's injury, Cavs slump, Curry/Durant's injuries (but its hard to give either the MVP anyway, just like Shaq/Kobe situation).
The only way Harden loses it is if he gets season-ending injury very soon.

Kevin Love out for something like 6-8 weeks with a broken hand.

Incredible timing.
It'd be a great story if Cleveland miss the playoffs now

I think the Cavs as constructed are Eastern Conference Semifinals bound this year. It just seems like the ride has come to an end. The pot has finally boiled over.

Surprised they lost to the short-handed pistons.

I just dont see Boston being able to beat the Cavs in a best of 7. BiPolar Smith will somehow find his shot again, Lebron will avg atleast 30ppg, Isaiah T might be able to hold his own, and maybe the Cavs pick up another piece soon since Lebron is never happy with his roster.

Plus Boston cant score when Kyrie goes to the bench.

That was the most unassuming 60 point effort I have seen.

The points came consistently through the game... 12 in the 1st, 12 in the 2nd, then 18 and 18.

He only hit 5 three pointers, and he hit 14 - 2 point shots with about 13 of them being layups. Add in 17/18 from the line.

It wasn't exciting like Steph burying 12 threes... it really came in the flow of the game. I guess the end was somewhat hype when broke Calvin's record on a 4 point play.
