    Irrelevant in this case, and it is not all of Chicago, his kids will probably have very limited exposure to that, just like the crime in killings in Miami, Dallas, New York or LA.
    Criminals travel though. They attend parties, and gatherings, and plan robberies and all that. Anyone can be caught in the wrong place at the wrong time. There's a girl I saw on the news this morning who is from Illinois I think. She hooked up with some people as her new friends. She found out later on they were into "stuff" and that she was in over her head. Now, she's missing, and they believe she's fallen victim to human trafficking. Bad folks travel.

    No doubt. They turned down really good offers(reportedly) earlier in the off-season. Wiggins has to be a part of the deal. And Waiters. After that who knows. Probably Varejao, too.
    Nah. Varejao is a Bron fav.

    Of course, If you're cleveland and you can get Lebron and Kevin Love, here's who you give up from your current roster....literally anyone.

    Am I the only one who wouldn't be terrified of a Irving/Waiters/LeBron/Love/Verejeo line-up? Apparently Irving and Waiters hate each other, and outside of LeBron that team is so inexperienced.
    Waiters would almost definitely go to Minnesota with Wiggins and Varejao, just to make the salaries match.

    It'd be Irving, either Mike Miller or Allen, LeBron, Thompson and Love.

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    Lakers could easily have built a decent roster around Melo had he signed.
    But no coach yet? And their roster right now stands at what, 8? Has Nick Young even re-signed yet?

    no, which is why I said they'd struggle early. But they will find guys off the street like Miami did that can be defensive specialists. This won't be a short term experiment.

    And offensively, good luck defending that trio.

    LOL Cavs fans on twitter who are saying that if Minny wants Wiggins for Love then too bad, no deal. NBA twitter is so great and so delusional at the same time.

    Minnesota has zero incentive to deal Love right now unless the Cavs make them an offer they can't refuse. Past Irving and Wiggins there is no real value to offer.

    I don't think they need to match salaries. The Cavs are going to have a bunch of cap space. Even after signing LeBron, Thompson and Waiters are making a combined 9.4 million. That should be enough. HoopsHype has them 30 million under the cap, not including the Jack trade.

    EDIT: Well that doesn't include Varejao's 9.8 million team option for some reason. Still though.

    I live in Chicago, on 61st and Rhodes, its a freakin war zone right now. 11 murders over the July 4th weekend and almost 50 shot

    and yes, NBA players dont have to go there but the United Center is on the west side about a half mile away from another war zone
    That's horrible. Be careful, although I'm sure you don't need someone else telling you that.

    except they won't have cap room anymore if they sign LeBron, and they'll need to match.

    Won't matter. LeBron gets his star treatment calls from refs which already gives them a huge advantage over their opponents and add to the fact this would be a feel good story if LeBron wins a title in Cleveland, so I expect the team to get the benefit of the doubt on most calls.

    It also doesn't list Kyrie's new contract.

    After this year, hence their announcement that "Kyrie's staying for another 6 years."

    Google Street View for evidence
    The first image below is the front of Lebron's house on Crystal View Court, the second image is the house on the corner(look familiar) of Crystal View and Bayshore.

    So the picture was taken shortly after the trucks left Lebron's house, drove down the street, and started turning onto Bayshore.
    Wait....was a Google car waiting in front of LeBron's house waiting for the Trucks to leave before taking this picture?

    I forgot that the Cavs traded Alonzo Gee's unguaranteed contract for Brendan Haywood. That complicates things I think.

    Even if Love agrees to re-sign with the Cavs after next season for the max, might they be better with Wiggins at 4 years on a rookie contract? Lets say Wiggins is the real deal, you could have Kyrie-Wiggins-Lebron and still have room for upgrades in free agency the next several years. He seems at WORST an athletic wing who would thrive alongside the pass-friendly Lebron James. A young Shawn Marion, worst case?

    Or you cap out at Kyrie-Lebron-Love and are limited to multiple veteran minimum players and ring chasers, just like Miami.

    I guess it comes down to what LBJ wants, though.
