Al Thornton is good. The Clippers sent three players and got back Drew Gooden?

Ladies and gentlemen, the following public service message is brought to you by your friends from D-Generation X, who would like to remind each and every one of you that if you're not down with that, we've got two words for you...

You might as well cross Ilgauskas off the list. The Wizards will likely waive him immediately and he'll return to the Cavs on the cheap after a 30-day waiting period.

Anything that gets the New York sportswriters to SHUT THE FUCK UP about LeBron coming here (newsflash: he isn't) is more than welcome by me.

While the switch from Cena to RVD should alleviate some complaints, the inevitability of the belt's return to Cena (note where Summerslam is this year) and the poor initial showing by the new ECW are enough to keep the indicator where it is for now. The pieces are in place, though, especially on RAW, for improvements to be made to the IWC's psyche in the near future.

Please forgive my ignorance, but why does this mean Lebron James isn't going to New York?

Thornton's good, but he's also one of the most selfish players in the league. He WILL give the Wizards headaches.

With all the dead weight, basket cases (goodbye, Sebastian Telfair!), and cap space the Clips are clearing off, you'd almost think they were...gulp...about to actually get SERIOUS about making a run for LeBron! Or, at the very least, for Dwayne Wade. Of course, they went this route with Kobe in 2004 and that only led to an $80 million contract for Cuttino Mobley. Can't say I like where this is going, but I applaud them for trying.

Amare Stoudemire may not have necessarily guaranteed a Cavs title, but he'd have gone a long way towards LeBron resigning with Cleveland. Jamison isn't half the player Stoudemire is, so I imagine it's all or nothing for Cleveland this year.

I guess the thought would be that it makes the Cavs more likely to win a title this year, which might make him more likely to stick around.

This is resulting the Cavs having less cap space next year, right? Or is that not a concern with Shaq's massive contract also coming off?

Picking up Antawn Jamison was pretty good but Sebastian Telfair is a waste for the Cavs in my opinion.

It could make him feel less guilty when he leaves, because the Cavs will still be competitive. If the T-Mac trade goes down without the Knicks giving up their whole future they will have tons of space this summer. It doesn't guarantee a thing, but neither does Jamison to the Cavs.

The Wizards should be ashamed. Terrible deal. Now this team has tons of cap space to offer players if they can convince them to play along side of Agent Zero. I would like to think that they could have done better in these two deals, but I guess that's not what trading in the NBA is about anymore.

Boy, I bet both Antawn Jamison and Caron Butler feel pretty good right now. They both leave the Wizards, who were going nowhere with Arenas and are even worse without him, if that's possible...

Jamison ends up in Cleveland, and Butler goes to Dallas, both perennial title contenders.

For the 'He's leaving' crowd, I want to know exactly what would entice him at this point to leave. I'm not going to be shocked if he does since weirder things have happened, but what does another team have to offer that he won't have in Cleveland?

Money: Cavs can sign him for the most money. As far as marketing goes, it's not like people don't know who he is. The Cavs have partial ownership (or soon will anyway) from Chinese investors, so there's a huge market for him as well.

Team: They've done everything he's asked as far as assembling a team around him to win. Who else that can get him will be able to have the kind of supporting cast that he'll have in Cleveland?

The Cavs will definitely be over the cap next year, so this is it for the team. Even if Z and Shaq weren't re-signed, they'd still only have a mid-level exception (or something in that neighborhood), so no superstars will be added via free agency.

As far as Amar'e goes, there's no guarantee he would have re-signed with the Cavs, either. If anything, this deal lends some stability to the Cavs in knowing what they have for next year.

I'd argue that Jamison is twice the player that Stoudemire is. He'll actually play defense for you!

Not to mention the fact that Stoudamire has played his whole career with Nash who tends toake players look better than they are.

Except for the fact that no legit NBA star with half a brain would ever want to play for a living joke of a franchise like the Clippers.

No surprises here; LeBron became the first forward in NBA history to average at least 8 assists a game, and not to mention he averaged over 7 boards a game and had nearly had 30 points a contest.
