Rock Bottom: Cleveland Went From Almost Acquiring Jimmy Butler To Possibly Dragan Bender, And Lose Kyrie

Darren Wolfson of 1500 ESPN:

The Phoenix Suns are the team to watch on Kyrie Irving. Now, they won’t offer Josh Jackson plus that Miami 2018 first and Eric Bledsoe. I’m told they’ll do Bledsoe. They’ll do the pick. Plus, Dragan Bender.

There ya go Cavs Nation, in a whirlwind of bad news, here is some good news. The Phoenix Suns are willing to give you Dragan Bender and Eric Bledsoe in exchange for your championship guard Kyrie Irving.

Talk about the worst possible thing to happen after losing the NBA Finals. You go from possibly acquiring Jimmy Butler, or Carmelo Anthony – to most likely losing Kyrie Irving, and ending up with Eric Bledsoe & DRAGAN BENDER.

Yeah, Dragan Bender, ya know, the guy who wears awkward beanies in team photoshoots:

 That is rock fucking bottom in my book. This last year must have been excruciating for the Cavaliers and their fans. Starting July 4th 2016, their 73 win rival added Kevin Durant, they lost the Finals in five – missed out on Jimmy Butler, and will likely lose Kyrie Irving now – and LeBron could be leaving to the Lakers now.

Hopefully, things work out, because I do NOT want to see another Warriors title. Even though it seems inevitable at this point.
