Why next season will be make or break for the Cleveland
Cavaliers 

The 2017-2018 NBA offseason has been record-setting, and filled
with tons of drama – especially for King James and his Cleveland Cavaliers. 

Since the devastating news of Kyrie Irving’s trade request, all
and everything in Cleveland has been completely chaotic. With LeBron James’
sudden transition from feeling heartbroken to being extremely pissed off, his
team is in serious limbo after reportedly having serious beef with Irving. 

The chemistry of James and Irving are vital to the Cavs’s
success, which may be the detriment to their team with the likely scenario that
the best two players will not be playing side to side. It’s hard to imagine Irving
will remain the starting point guard for Cleveland, especially after hearing ESPN
report, “Irving wants to be traded, doesn’t want to play with LeBron
James." 

Looks like Cleveland is going to have to start planning life
without Kyrie, and they most certainly did. 

The Cavs acted swiftly just after hearing the news of Irving,
picking up the next best available point guard in the open market. Derrick
Rose, former MVP, shocked the league after signing veteran minimum 1-year, 2.1
million contract with the three-time defending Eastern Conference Champion
Cleveland Cavaliers. 

Thankfully for the Cavs, they will now have two former MVPs and
both of them are still in the prime of their careers. 

Since his “recent decline” with the Chicago Bulls, Rose just had
one of his best season performances in years, averaging over 18 points with the
New York Knicks – showing the NBA that he can still ball. Rose is not only
on a mission to prove to himself, but to the basketball world, he is a championship-caliber point guard. 

Will
Rose and Cleveland be revitalized
this upcoming season?
