Everyone seems to have their opinions one way or another on what the Cavs did on Thursday, with most for the most part thinking moving six players was the right thing to do for a team that appeared to be going nowhere fast despite still being the 3rd seed in the East the last month or so.
One former player, who is usually critical of what the Cavs do, is Charles Barkley, who last night on TNT went out of his way to say that after Thursday’s moves the Cavs are not only better – they are now the favorites to win the NBA Finals in June.
“This team had no chance of winning or even getting to the finals 24 hours ago. Now they, to me, have become the favorites.”
