Cavs have been stockpiling picks/money and neglecting his position. We've had our shot at guys like Harrison Barnes, and took guys like Dion Waiters instead... I think drafting a C at the top of this draft is icing on the cake that Cleveland will be all in trying to bring LeBron back.
I know a of the fans say they hate him and don't want him back.... but I'm sure their tunes would change fast it if happened.
Real Longshot, but Irving-Waiters-James-Thompson-Noel... yeah I'll take it. We still have like six or so first round picks in the next three years too... and a shit ton of cap space.
It wouldn't surprise me if he considered it then, but I would hope he and the Cavs aren't looking that far ahead. LeBron has a chance to win a couple of titles first. I know he's not thinking about 2 years down the road yet. Cleveland shouldn't be planning around a player that already left them empty handed. The fit probably makes sense because LeBron is from there and could wipe away all of the bad mojo by winning a title, but there's time to worry about that later.
IMO it's nonsense to think they passed on Harrison Barnes this last draft because they are planning on signing a player in 2 years. I don't know who comes up with that kind of bullshit.
