Horrible series to watch after the first two games as everyone on the Cavaliers except Lebron appeared to quit in games 3 and 4. Rumor out there now is Lebron was playing with a broken right hand after he punched a blackboard after the Game 1 loss.

IMO, no way Lebron stays in Cleveland. He is going to go to a team with some star players or a lot of money under the salary cap and start chasing championships

Agree hs.  I've seen the Philly and LA rumors as well as some others.  I'm not sure he's a great fit for Philly though as they have a really strong, young roster with some real star power already.  The 76er's may actually be better off keeping JJ Reddick and letting their young guys keep developing.  Lebron would just be a 2 year rental.  Chris Paul would present the same option.  These guys are near the end of their careers and you know how quickly that end of career slide can happen.  $35 mil a year will buy a lot more talent and keep all that depth for Philly.  I'd rather they stay young and if it takes another year or two, so be it.  They could be the next dynasty up, very similar to Golden State!

At the BF summer league game, was told Sheldon Jeter is in Boston for a tryout with the Celtics. Apparently they were scouting him in Europe, contacted his agent and offered a tryout.

Word out there now is that Kawhi Leonard wants out of San Antonio. He is injury prone but that would ne a great pickup for some teams out there

The one thing that may hurt his value was he sat almost the entire season even after he was healthy.  Who's to say he won't try it with a new team.  Was just reading the Spurs may force him to play this season and if he tries the same stunt, they won't pay him and can legally do so.  He really pissed a lot of the veteran Spurs this year and that won't help either.  The one team that has shown some interest and the Spurs can get a quality player in return is the Celtics.  They'd be willing to give Kyrie Irving for him.  The Lakers are offering Lonzo Ball, Loul Deng, Brandon Ingram and this years #25 pick.  Should be interesting.  I think the Spurs will move him as long as they get value, just to get him out of San Antonio and make him some other teams problem.
