If you thought the Los Angeles Clippers trading Tobias Harris right after he had made a game winning shot (they did the same thing a year ago right after Blake Griffin had scored the game winner), was the peak of ruthless National Basketball Association business, then Dallas Mavericks might have just topped it.
"I had a chance to speak to him before everyone got in the locker room [after the game] and thanked him for over two-and-a-half great years of being a model pro and being one of the most improved players in the game".
His caption read, "So let me guess this is cool cause they had to do what was best for the franchise right???"
Clearly, James is annoyed with how teams using strong business practices are widely seen as shrewd, while players doing what's best for themselves are considered selfish. "Traded this man while he was literally playing in the game and had ZERO idea", James said on his Instagram account after it was announced Barnes was traded from the Mavericks while he was playing in a game against the Hornets.
Apparently, LeBron has heard enough about free agency and wants some of the outrage for player movement to be placed on the teams.
Oil falls below $62 on USA inventories, fading Venezuela concerns
Maduro, who retains control over the state, denounces Guaido as a US puppet who is seeking to foment a coup against him. Oil fell on Tuesday after a survey showed euro zone business expansion almost stalled in January.
"I'm ok with both honestly, truly am", James wrote in the post.
"I am going to miss him an terrible lot", Carlisle said. A great influence on the team, also in this community. "We'll miss him an terrible lot, but I believe he's going to have a great situation where he's going, and we'll just go forward from here".
Randolph can still contribute as a relentless rebounder and capable scorer from the forward position, as he put up 14.5 points and 6.7 rebounds per game in 2017-18, before sitting out this entire season. "I know that firsthand". The Lakers have reportedly been trying to acquire him before Thursday's deadline.
The trade deadline has, somehow, still not passed.
