Point blank. We need draft picks. No way around it.
But its hard seeing Mo go. Mo wanted to be in CLE and he took LBJ leaving harder than most Clevelanders. Because of that and his famous tweets, he really got a good fan base in CLE. If you say the right things and play on one of our sports teams, we rally behind you. He was a great fit in that respect. What makes this easier is he has been out with injuries a lot this year, so we’ve been almost prepping for what this would feel like.
So we get B-Diddy the Beard. Unquestionable All-Star potential talent… but has had probs with Coach Scott and has been accused of having motivation issues. So far, he has said “all the right things” publicly about the trade. Even though I live in LA, pretty much all new highlights are the Blake show… so I have to be honest, I don’t even know what Baron’s game is like these days
Jamario was included in the trade as well. He has had a very odd season, beginning as a starter, then relegated to the bench, then lately being a solid contributor. But no doubt, he’s an athletic, constantly positive guy. He should do well off the bench in LA.
The goosie is gone. Long live the Beard
