Thread: Would you trade Danny+TJ for LeBron?

  1. #1

    Default Would you trade Danny+TJ for LeBron?

    Okay, this is something I have been thinking a lot about recently. Let me clear this up right away: this is from a FAN'S perspective, not a GM's. That means while you really care about winning, you also care about who is playing on your team. For example, you like Travis Deiner because you're a Pacers fan, not an NBA GM.

    So here goes, would you trade Danny and TJ for LeBron? Or fill in the blank for the player you would do instead of TJ that would work.

    The obvious answer is yes, because TJ is a let down and LeBron is like Danny on roids. But I don't know if I would. On one side, I am so attached to Danny as a player, I love his game, I love his effort, passion, his attitude and he is one of the coolest guys I could ever ask for on a team. Nothing could ever make up for the years I've gotten to know Danny and seen him grow. But LeBron would make us exponentially better immediately, as he did with the Cavs when he was drafted and every year since.

    One way I answer this question is by thinking what I would do immediately upon hearing the news of the trade. My heart would be broken and I would be devastated to lose Danny. It would be the feeling where you reach for your wallet and it's not there... but then you find it later and it has $500 more dollars in it than before.

    I tell my friends I wouldn't want this trade because I'm way too big of a fan of Granger. But they don't believe me, and why should they? While Granger is great, he has so many obvious flaws and with LeBron, we would be a 6 seed at the worst.

    Also, let's try not to let this turn into a Kobe v. LeBron argument.

    I have watched Lebron since high school absolutely in awe of him. I don't dislike his attitude like many here. He is the best player in the world hands down.

    However, I may not do it because he's a free agent soon, and I wouldn't expect him to stay. This isn't Cleveland where it's his home before even professional sports. He would be more inclined to stay there and not go to New York or LA. Here, I think he's going to bolt soon. So I'd take Granger for 5 years over Lebron for 1 year. Unless I'm pretty damn sure Lebron being here would win a championship, and I don't even think he could carry us that far.

    Yeah I guess I should clarify, there are two different scenarios here. The first is a trade tomorrow, and the second is a sign-and-trade in the offseason. Both are interesting for different reasons. Let's say the off season transaction involves Danny + Foster.

    No. He'd just expire on us and go to a bigger market.

    I agree that this trade is absolutely a no-go until LeBron has a long-term contract in place -- it's way too risky to lose Danny for nothing, especially since LeBron wants to play in a big market.

    I'm curious where you heard that he wants this, a lot of people say it, but I've never heard this come from him or anyone close to him.

    His endorsement with Nike doubles if he plays in a top 3 market.... NY, LA or Chicago. So if he leaves Cleveland it'll definitely be to play for one of those squads (or MAYBE the Heat).

    If that's even true, that means Nike wants him there, it doesn't mean he wants to go there. You're not talking about some mid level guy who couldn't get any amount of endorsements he wants.

    Lebron could be in Alaska, and could get endorsements for any dollar amount he wants. He'd just have to sign a couple extra dotted lines. He's not exactly Michael Redd doing Safe Auto commercials here.

    I agree. In fact, I'd throw in your right nut too.

    Instead of LeBron could I trade Granger and TJ for Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook?

    Easily.
    "I keep wondering the same thing. Last week they had the 4th worst record in the league, had an 11.9 percent chance of winning the lottery and were in line to land a franchise type player like Derrick Favors or DeMarcus Cousins. This week? They have a 1.7 percent chance of winning the lottery, have the 8th worst record and are in line to draft Cole Aldrich or Greg Monroe. Way to go Jim O'Brien. Rest Danny Granger the rest of the season (if it isn't too late) and give Josh McRoberts lots of minutes. That ought to do it." - Chad Ford on winning meaningless games

    Way to go Jim, you may have just put our franchise back another 4+ years.

    I'm sure they'd take two older, worse, more expensive players.
