For Cleveland Cavaliers fans, it has not been great since their team was eliminated by the Orlando Magic a few days ago.
However, there has been quite an uproar across the media over LeBron James walking off the court before shaking hands with the Orlando Magic, as well as him not attending the press conference following their elimination.
David Stern said today that he has reached out to LeBron James in an attempt to discuss what took place.
LeBron James spoke to the media one day after the loss, and explained how he felt. He appeared quite upset—which is understandable, because his Cleveland Cavaliers were the top-seeded East team coming into the playoffs.
Do you believe that LeBron James should be punished for his actions?
According to the Cleveland Plain Dealer, the Cleveland Cavaliers did not complete a trade at today’s NBA Trade Deadline. The trade deadline was set at 3 PM earlier today. The Cavs not making any moves comes as a mild surprise to some, as there were several rumors of players they were targeting.
Earlier in the week, the Cavs had been rumored to have targeted Sacramento Kings center Brad Miller, but he was eventually traded to the Chicago Bulls. Miller would have undoubtedly helped the Cavs in their quest for an NBA championship this season.
Amar’e Stoudamire was the top trade target rumored to be available. The Phoenix Suns’ star would have been a stellar addition for the Cavs, who could have paired star-with-star with LeBron James and Amar’e. Phoenix center Shaquille O’Neal was also rumored to be targeted by the Cavaliers. O’Neal’s experience and veteran attitude would have helped in a major playoff push.
Cavs fans can only wait and see if their team staying put ends up being the right decision.
