Why Cleveland Cavaliers May Lose LeBron Once Again

Thomas 'tired of being traded' and wants Cavs stay

The Cavaliers scored 43 points in the first quarter, but then went nearly 6½ minutes without scoring in the fourth quarter and lost for the 14th time in 21 games.

LeBron James #23 of the Cleveland Cavaliers looks on during the second half while playing the Detroit Pistons at Little Caesars Arena on January 30, 2018 in Detroit.

Shaq used quite the analogy Tuesday to detail how LeBron James is in charge of the Cavs, and in turn how he needs to be the one to fix them.

The NBA moved up the start of the regular season this season, building more space so back-to-backs could be reduced and stretches of four games in five nights could be eliminated. So they'll go their road and we'll go ours, but we're going to try to make a run for it and with all the injuries we have had, we're not really exhausted.

Cavs head coach Tyronn Lue left the Cleveland bench early in the second quarter for the locker room due to an illness and did not return. "We're the ones playing and we just got our (butts) whipped". And when you add their three-point specialists, they can be damn near unstoppable when they get hot.

The Cavs will try to right the ship against the Minnesota Timberwolves Wednesday night at home.

Nassar gets 40 to 125 more years in final sentence
Raisman also made it clear to Nassar that while his abuse affected her deeply, it did not deter her from her love of gymnastics. Judge Janice Cunningham sentenced Nassar to a minimum of 40 years and a maximum of 125 years for his crimes in Eaton County.

The pivot away from James' wishes has been noticeable, particularly since this is a franchise that since losing him in 2010 has been willing to do - and spend - whatever was necessary to get him back and keep him happy. We bring a lot of energy to the game. Now that he is once again being included in some trade chatter about potentially being dealt by the Cleveland Cavaliers, the Cavs guard made his thoughts about it recently. He was one of the NBA's best players after winning back to back Most Valuable Players Awards in 2009 and 2010. They made adjustments, and it worked, and we just kept getting hit with the same thing, and we made no adjustments.

The obvious problem is the team defense, so they should be in the market for 1) a defensive anchor and/or 2) at least one Three-and-D specialist.

Smith suggested Wednesday that the Cavs' season is so far gone that Cleveland might tank in the playoffs just to avoid facing former star Kyrie Irving and the Celtics.

The Orlando Magic are not a very good team this year. If the Cavs are doing their best to put together a long-term future, they'll want players on longer, team-friendly contracts.

This is a big test for Cleveland, especially because it will be another nationally televised game.
