Calderon is currently on a 5 year/$45 mil deal, next season will be his last season under the contract.

@Magic: Val is a beast though, and he's a good rebounder. I seriously don't know why the Cavs drafted Tristan Thompson over him.

Because the Cavs wish to remain as stupid as possible. They should have drafted him, traded Vaj, tanked again this year, and had a great young core going into the future. Instead they have Thompson which will be a good role player at best imo.

Jonas would have gone third if teams weren't scared away by the buyout situation, imo.

Another beastly game by Paul. He actually started off pretty strong in the first quarter which is rare since he usually doesn't look to score much in the first half and is passive for the most part. He was great in the 4th like usual albeit got in foul trouble for awhile. Man just had a great sense of taking over a game knowing when to set guys up, creating and exploiting mismatches and controlling the tempo.

Clippers had some defensvie issues though and VDN left the second unit in for too long and their second unit is absolutely terrible defensively especially on the perimeter. They kept getting caught up in screens, losing sight of their man, not making proper rotations and Warriors were getting great looks from 3. Their FT shooting is a pretty problem too. Defense + coaching + FT shooting are three pretty big flaws of their team that might get exposed in the playoffs.

HAHAHA Stevenson breaking Rondo's ankle's clean and made him slip and slide.

Edit: this has quietly been one of the worst officiating games of the season. Oh well I guess the refs want us to get a top 3 pick

T. Thompson has been very serviceable this season, very athletic and his shot blocking skills are impressive, him next to Kyrie is not as bad as you guy's point out, he can certainly be a nice starter 16-8 Rb type of player.

Sure Val is the better prospect but it's not like Thompson is showing that he has no potential, under-rated rookie

Jonas Valanciunas has All-Star potential, Tristan Thompson has the potential to be a solid starting PF.

Im not arguing that, obviously the buy-out issues were a turn-off but for a guy who was expected to be taken after Val, he certainly has the Cleveland fans forgetting about it.

In B4 Jordan draft's a bust

Well it's not like Thompson did a lot for them this year anyways, I don't see why they didn't just go after Val. They had Thompson had the bench all year, playing like 20ish minutes a game, and it's not like they were going to contend this year so I don't see why they didn't just draft Val.

Exactly, I think it would've been smarter to draft Jonas and then be able to tank this season and pick up someone like MKG or Thomas Robinson to play alongside Kyrie & Jonas.
