Think about the offense! Isaiah Thomas, Derrick Rose, J.R. Smith, Kevin Love, LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony. Those levels of players on one team is indescribable—even up against the Warriors.
But a scenario I hadn’t given much play to was Carmelo Anthony joining the OKC Thunder. The way this played out may end up being the best situation for the Cleveland Cavaliers for four reasons.
