Saying the Thunder had Top Tier talent when they were drafted compared to the Cavs - other then Durant - is insane.
Can't tell if you're being sarcastic or not O_o

Irving is a ballplayer. If they can hit it big with the #5 pick, nbadraft.net has them getting MKG who I think would be a home run at 5, they have a shot to become a contender in the east quickly.

Gilbert doesn't need the Cavs to make money. He makes money from Quicken, he makes money from all the casinos he participates in, and he makes money from the Cavs regardless of LeBron. It seemed that he was more upset that all he did was bend over backwards for LeBron and he still left and left the way he did. Most people outside of Cleveland have the fans wrong; they weren't mad about LeBron leaving, they were mad about how he did it. He embarrassed both the fans and Gilbert all in one fell swoop. The chances of LeBron coming back to Cleveland as long as Gilbert is owner is pretty small in my opinion.

As a Cleveland fan before Lebron, and living near Cleveland growing up, I don't fault Lebron for leaving. Yeah it sucks that he did and it was a televised nightmare, but I don't think the team when Lebron was with Cleveland had the ability to win a championship. They bought Shaq for a year as a mercenary and that didn't help, and coaching during Lebron's time in Cleveland was sub-par and thats being kind. If I had the chance to win in South Beach and be with my best friend I would leave too!
