Just saw IT shots 3-10 with 6 turnovers and a team-low -25.... things could get very ugly in CLE real quick.
Feel bad for the little guy. I hope he gets out of there soon and has his career resume the trajectory Brad put him on.
I kind of hope they trade him away to another team.
And it's not because I'm rooting for him to fail, but because he needs to GET OUT of that toxic environment. He deserves his money. Not saying he's a max guy but he is definitely a 16-18M/Year player.
Same with Kevin Love. Love is their 2nd best player and yet the rest of the team trashes on him. Sad.
I hope they do too. But I doubt they can get anything close to value for him at his contract. They could try trading him with Thompson for someone with a lower ceiling, but getting rid of that contract. But with Love being sidelined, they need a big. Cleveland is in a very bad spot.
I think IT, when healthy, is worth a lot more than $16-18M. I donít know if heís a super max guy, but if guys like Teague ($19M/yr), Hill ($19M/yr), Holiday ($26M/yr), etc. can get those contracts, IT definitely deserves significantly more than the likes of Rubio, Schroeder, Parker, Bledsoe, Dragic, and Jackson (all of whom are in the $15M range).
We know heís not healthy yet. Letís see how close he can get to last years version, which was pretty sensational (on a winning team no less, with no clear cut 2nd scoring option).
