Scoop B: Cleveland Cavaliers create team in LeBron James’ image, beat Kyrie Irving’s Celtics, spoil Paul Pierce’s return

RESPECT Magazine’s Brandon ‘Scoop B’ Robinson discusses Cleveland Cavaliers’ upgrade with Syracuse, NY’s Bud & The Manchild. Press Play Below To Listen!

Last week at the NBA’s trading deadline, the Cleveland Cavaliers re-created their team.

Within an hour, the Cavs traded Isaiah Thomas, Channing Frye, Jae Crowder, Derrick Rose, Iman Shumpert, Dwyane Wade and their 2018 first-round pick.

In turn, they added youth, grit and shooting by nabbing George Hill from the Sacramento Kings, Rodney Hood from the Utah Jazz and coupled them with Jordan Clarkson and Larry Nance Jr. from the Los Angeles Lakers.

At the end of the day it’s all love 💯

Yesterday afternoon, the NBA’s national television audience got a glimpse at the new-look Cavaliers when they Kyrie Irving-led Boston Celtics.

The Cavs won the game 121-99. LeBron James finished the road win with 24 points, eight rebounds and 10 assists. Jordan Clarkson  had 17 points.

Can a newly cemented Cavaliers team take on a Golden State Warriors team in the NBA Finals in June?
