LeBron James says he's happy for Cavs fans after Cleveland wins the lottery.

Posted by Matt Moore


It's thanks to LeBron James that the Cavaliers won the lottery. (Not really.) They should really thank him. (No, they shouldn't.) After all, it was James' incessant demands of an improved roster while catering to his specific opinions that drove the Cavaliers to acquire Mo Williams. And it was James' departure from Cleveland that led to the Cavaliers' bottoming out, looking to liquidate as many assets as possible, including Mo Williams' trade to Los Angeles in exchange for Baron Davis and the Clippers' first-round pick, which of course became the No.1 overall in Tuesday night's lottery. LeBron James is a hero for Cleveland! (No, he isn't.)

Anyway, James got the inevitable question today on what he thought about the Cavaliers' landing that No. 1 spot. From ESPN:
 
LeBron said he's happy for Cavs organization and fans for winning lottery. Said he thinks Kyrie Irving would really help franchise.
via Brian Windhorst (windhorstespn) on Twitter.

A nice, quiet answer for once. No karmic references, no backhanded snipes at the franchise that threw eggs on him as he was abandoning them, no soft measures of bitterness. Just your basic, media-friendly non-answer. Not saying anything relevant is the smartest thing LeBron's said about the Cavs all year.

Can we all please start to move on now? No? Okay, then.

You are much bigger than Cleveland LeBron.  They haven't won a professional championship in their major 3 sports since 1964.  You gave them 7 years...so piss on the Cleveland haters!

I am sure the Cavs fans are concerned that you are happy for them LePunk.  The dude has to be the biggest egomaniac in the world.  Keep your trap shut dude and start focusing on not losing to the Bulls by 20.

Not sure why the Cavs would select Kyrie Irving with the #1 overall pick.  Irving wasn't even the best player on the Duke squad last year and Irving's Blue Devils were squashed like a bug by Derrick Williams and the Arizona Wildcats.  In the first half of the game against Duke it was Williams that kept the Wildcats in the game while his teammates struggled.  Williams is a great small forward prospect to go along with JJ Hickson.  Williams has an inside out game and can pound the boards plus the improvement he displayed between his freshman and sophmore season shows he is the type of player that will work hard and continue to get better.  There are a lot of organizations out there right now that are enamored by Derrick Rose and want Irving to be the next Rose but it's highly more likely that Williams will be the next Blake Griffin.
