It’s GameTime!
Running Time: 48:30
1Q: Lebron and Decision 2.0
- Will he come back or stay in Miami? Rumors everywhere, but no one knows.
- Most expect announcement this week, after he meets with Pat Riley.
- Either way, the decision will trigger several roster moves as the Cavs try to continue their rebuild or try to acquire other pieces to go with LBJ.
- Chris Bosh looking at a max deal with Houston. Does he know something we don’t?
- Why would Wade give up the guaranteed $$$ and opt out?
2Q: What The Cavs Must Do
- If LBJ signs here, do you move Dion? Wiggins? Draft Picks? Would you move all of those or is there a limit to what you do to get a Kevin Love in return?
- Zeller, Karasev, Jack, or some combination of them or others will have to be cut to make room to sign LBJ to a max deal.
- Do the Cavs have a Plan B?
3Q: Browns Woes with Manziel and Gordon
- Gordon arrested for DUI, driving a car registered to PJ Hairston (kicked off of UNC’s hoops team). This is on top of his other problems this offseason.
- Manziel caught in photo that raises questions about drug use.
- Neither have heeded team warnings. Haslam told him to cool it, but it hasn’t changed anything.
- Meanwhile, Brian Hoyer pursues a new contract with the Browns.
4Q: Indians Near the Break
- Brantley voted to AL AllStar Team. Corey Kluber is one of five that fans can vote in. He’s up against tough competition and unlikely to make it in.
- Justin Masterson put on the DL after third consecutive start pulled after a few innings.
- Kluber is the only starter from Opening Day still in the rotation (Masty – DL, Carrasco – bullpen, McAllister and Salazer – AAA Columbus)
- The Indians are 43-45 going into Tuesday’s action. That puts them in 3rd place in the AL Central, 6.5GB division-leading Detroit.
