Brian Windhorst joined Tony Rizzo and Aaron Goldhammer on The Really Big Show today to talk about the Cavs. Among some of the highlights, Windhorst said, “I know Dan Gilbert is steaming mad…” He claimed that the Cavaliers will almost undoubtedly make a trade this season. He pointed to the Sacramento Kings’ top-ten protected pick saying that if the Kings improve marginally from their recent moves, that pick could be in play for the Cavaliers this year.
On Kyrie Irving, Windhorst said that Cavs fans talking about keeping Kyrie Irving long-term might want to consider that Irving needs to prove that he’s a max player. “I’ve gotta see Kyrie start to act like a leader.” When asked if Kyrie was an untouchable player, Windhorst said yes, he still is, but that he is the only untouchable player on the Cavs right now.
There were plenty more highlights talking about how the Cavs need to make an impact maneuver this year in order to attract anyone with their cap space next year, whether that is LeBron or anyone else. Also, good news, but Windhorst said he expects LeBron to put on an absolute show tonight against the Cavaliers considering how he’s been playing lately.
I’m sure the whole interview will be up on The Really Big Show podcenter page at ESPN Cleveland later in the day.
