Hawks fans taunt Cavs with epic LeBron chant

12 February 2018

Dwyane Wade, Derrick Rose, and Isaiah Thomas are no longer on the Cavs.

It's certainly possible the team's deals will completely fix all that and James will want to come back.

Any time that Lebron James is in town you can be sure there will be a large audience and plenty of creative jabs thrown the Kings way.

"I'm really excited about the new guys we have, and I'm really excited about what they are going to bring to the table", Altman said according to ESPN. As the trade deadline approached, it seemed that Los Angeles would be content holding on to its young talent and backing off on its original intention of landing two superstars in the offseason.

In his first National Basketball Association start, Cavs rookie Cedi Osman looked great throughout this game, and his energy and defensive intensity seemed to catch the Hawks completely unawares at times.

Thursday's trades were out of necessity and desperation for Cleveland. Cavaliers made a decision to ship Thomas, Channing Frye and their 2018 first-round pick to the Los Angeles Lakers in exchange for Jordan Clarkson and Larry Nance Jr.

In return, the Cavaliers retained the highly-coveted Brooklyn Nets pick they received from Boston, acquired the Heat's 2020 protected second-round pick and added some much need defense, shooting and athleticism at point guard and forward in Rodney Hood, George Hill, Jordan Clarkson and Larry Nance Jr.

All that wheeling-and-dealing stole headlines even with almost two-thirds of the league making deals.

Wade is back in Miami, while IT is headed to Los Angeles to join the Lakers. Nance's father, who still works as a coordinate for the Cavaliers, was a forward for the great teams of the late '80s and early '90s.

As a friendly reminder, here's a quick snapshot of the massive alterations the Cavs made this week in reshaping practically half its roster.

"The fact that he chose to come off the bench in Cleveland has minimized and also limited his opportunities to do certain things that he has always been capable of doing, so I would imagine he would morph right back into the role of being a scorer, a front-line scorer for us, a crunch-time scorer for us, a defender on the ball in niche situations", Riley said. It was time for change with the team on the brink of collapse leading up to LeBron's decision to stay in Cleveland or move on.

The Cavs have lost 10 of the 16 games they've played since that January 2 victory against Portland, and nine of the 10 losses have been by double digits.

In his four year stint with the Lakers, the Filipino-American cager said that he is proud of all the things he accomplished which includes an All-Rookie First Team selection in 2015.

If you ask Atlanta Hawks fans, that is definitely going to become a reality. But just having him on the floor will be good.

Some players traded Thursday were immediately waived.
