Cleveland gets its basketball back

Bless the bratty Cavaliers, be they near or departed. The Cavs made it about basketball again, even before they traded half their basketball team. That stupid Brooklyn pick was always going to hang over 2017-18, the question was for how long. The worry was how much it would matter, either in the unwanted hope that the asset would return a needed missing piece for LeBron James’ team, or the unsavory idea that Dan Gilbert would hang onto a future Stanley Johnson as some sort of show of strength.
