As you may know, I don’t like LeBron very much. But none can deny that LeBron does many schemes, so I think there’s a certain commonality between him and our staffers. And of course, as seasoned veterans in the profession of giving takes, we have an obligation to write about LeBron’s every move. Now, if you think that the King DIDN’T engineer the Cavaliers’ trading Isaiah Thomas, Channing Frye, Dwyane Wade, Iman Shumpert, Jae Crowder, and Derek Rose, then you probably lack the vision to continue reading. LeBron’s shipping out his entire team is clear evidence that he’s preparing Cleveland for the post-LeBron era–and not favorably. Honestly, anyone who’s analyzing how the Cavs’ new acquisitions could make a difference in the Finals just doesn’t understand what’s happening here. No, Jordan Clarkson, Larry Nance Jr., Rodney Hood and George Hill are not going to be the difference between losing and beating the Warriors; in fact, they may not even be enough to take the Celtics to seven games in the Eastern Conference Finals. The Cavaliers are now a younger team and yes, they retained the Brooklyn draft pick, but they’re no better off now than they were when the day began, in my opinion. They’ve merely acquired a few young role players who will lay the groundwork for Cleveland’s rebuild, which will begin next year and, quite possibly, never end. ‘
Another point that’s being overlooked by the lamestream, LeBron-obsessed media is that LeBron now effectively has a conflict of interest: by dealing the expiring Isaiah Thomas and Channing Frye contracts to LAL, he enables the Lakers to clear the requisite cap space to sign him to a max deal this summer. What’s more, he was able to scheme Cleveland’s first-round draft pick into the package to LA, as well! Dan Gilbert is literally standing by as his team’s value plummets before his eyes. I mean, how in the name of God does Gilbert, a self-made billionaire, sit idly and WATCH as an employee tanks his $1,325 million asset? This is not only sickening, it is an indictment of the legal system that LeBron is not under a federal investigation right now. If Magic Johnson’s praising Giannis Antekounmpo in an interview warrants a fine of $50,000, LeBron’s injustices to not only Dan Gilbert’s portfolio, but the miserable city of Cleveland as well, are worthy of imprisonment.
