Yappi will become famous soon enough
Since I'm not as well versed on all the angles for whether he will stay or go...does tonight's draft appear to encourage him to stay or make it more likely that he will leave?

There's this - https://sports.yahoo.com/cavaliers-d...010721600.html

If James does indeed decide to leave, you have to feel for Sexton, who would possibly be seen as a piece of bait rather than a legit building block. What separates Sexton from Napier (when picked by the Heat) is that the Alabama point guard is widely seen as a strong NBA prospect, while Napier was a bit more borderline as a college star who was limited athletically. Sexton should be a significant asset for the Cavaliers, no matter who his teammates are.

But more important that that, 1227 the Great wanted Sexton. LeBron may leave, but brian isn't getting past his mom's basement.

Good pick ... if LBJ stays, you can still use Sexton as a trade piece to get Kemba Walker ... if LBJ leaves you have a young PG to build around ... win, win!

Taco MacArthur has a little shameless behaviour in the past
I would have liked to get Kemba and use the #8/Sexton for a different trade. But it doesn't appear to be in the cards.

Unless he gets traded for a PG it better be 100%.

If LeBron does go to the Lakers, I'd find great satisfaction and hilarity in them inevitably trading off Lonzo and the insuing Lavar meltdown that would follow. I think I could live with that outcome as a Cavs fan.

Cavs now at +350 after a gnarly +5000 after the end of Game 4.

I like Sexton. If he keeps working while maintaining the drive and motor he'll be great on some level - if even the next Rondo. I'd like to see him start with the foul shot. Like old Coach Paul Haught sez, anybody can shoot when calm. Run, speed and agility, shoot when all lathered up, run again, repeat. Ad nauseum, ad infinitum. Move on to the jumper.

It would be gold if the Balls got tossed out of the Stapler. Pure gold.

I'm guessing Lavar gets pressed so hard that he gets rattled and goes Cro-magnon on some TMZ goof

That would tickle me to no end...as long as they don't land in Cleveland.

But there's one other aspect of the LeBron to LA prospect that no one as far as I know has mentioned: the Lakers have expressed an interest in re-signing Isaiah Thomas. Now, I don't know this for sure, but just from watching the inter-play between Thomas and James on the court and off, I don't know how receptive James would be to reunite with Thomas. Of course, if LeBron makes that an issue, Thomas is gone.

Thomas will be a tough signing for anyone as he will want money commensurate with his standing two years ago while teams will look at him like damaged goods.

Not sure Chris Paul can stay healthy enough when they team him and Lebron together in LA next season. With Paul more worried about money surprised he would go to LA for the millions he will lose in taxes. Then again they are buds.

Crazy LA rumors Gilbert is high on Lonzo. Maybe Lavar could be at pit boss.

It sure is looking more and more like Lebron will be in Cleveland at least one more year. All of the talk out of OKC is George wants to stay there and SA doesn’t seem to have any interest in dealing with the Cavs or Lakers. Although over the next 2 weeks I’m sure things will change at least 17 times.

I'm thinking there's a good chance LeBron opts in and waits until next summer. I think there's a better chance than expected that George stays with OKC. Statistically, they actually had one of the best starting lineups in terms of +/- last year. I think there may be a bit more optimism there than most would expect.

It would be insane to go to LA without one or both of George and Leonard already in the fold, but never forget that LeBron marches to the beat of his own drum.
