Over the past couple of weeks, I’ve flip-flopped on the Andrew Wiggins and Kevin Love trade scenario about a thousand times. Thankful, I know I’m not alone. When you take a look at the situation, there are some extremely strong “pros,” but just as many “cons” that twirl and tug you in a thousand different directions. At this current point in time, the belief is that the Minnesota Timberwolves are asking for too much. The Cavs have been allegedly willing to give up Andrew Wiggins, Anthony Bennett and another first round pick, but Minnesota wants even more. As time passes, their greed may get the best of them. PF Kevin Love is going to walk, and if the asking price is too high teams will refuse a trade regardless of how good Love is on the floor.
Trade for Kevin Love: Definitely win now, and suffer years down the road.
Keep Andrew Wiggins and company: Have a good chance to win now, and a very bright future to look forward to as well.
It’s obvious that with the return of LeBron James, Cleveland fans are becoming more and more greedy, myself included. A year ago, we would have foamed at the mouth for a lineup that features Kyrie Irving, Kevin Love and the King himself, but shockingly now everyone isn’t quite sold on that scenario.
With our miracle 1.7% chance in the lottery, the drafting of former Kansas star Andrew Wiggins has made Cleveland fans extremely indecisive on the Wine and Gold’s future.
There have been reports that our returning beloved star has reached out to Kevin Love, who averaged 26 points and 14 rebounds last season for the Timberwolves, with an interest for him to join the Cleveland championship quest. However, after #LeBronWatch2014 what source can we actually trust with this matter?
Do you rid us of all our young talent, potential that is just ready explode into consistent success years down the road?
Do you keep that talent, praying that the potential comes to fruition, but is also enough to help the current squad win a title?
What if the Cavs end up NOT winning because we didn’t make the bold move?
These are the questions that boggle the minds of the Cleveland fans, and most definitely have given Cavs owner Dan Gilbert and GM David Griffin plenty of headaches.
Seriously, it’s just a damn tough decision.
The scary part is that this debacle could last for months, all the way up until the trade deadline.
