Dwyane Wade signed a one year 2.3 million dollar deal with the Cleveland Cavaliers.As soon as he reached a buyout with the Chicago Bulls, teams lined up for his service. Wade ultimately turned down offers from teams like the Spurs and Thunder, to play with Lebron James.
However, as soon as Wade got to Cleveland. The debate on whether or not he would start got started.
Well the debate is over. As the team head coach announced that Dwyane Wade would start. With Jr Smith coming off the bench. Lue went on to say that “when the Cavs face the Chicago Bulls, tomorrow night (in Cleveland). The starters will be, Derrick Rose, Dwayne Wade, Lebron James, Jae Crowder and Kevin Love.
Lue went on to say. That he spoke with Jr Smith and stated that Smith was fine with the move. Which (I guess) is a good and bad thing.
I say it’s a good thing. Because maybe this shows that Smith is willing to do what’s best for the team. Then I say it’s a bad because I would’ve like to see Smith put up more of a fight for his job.
However, since he didn’t. I guess we’re going to have to just see how things go. As we all know Wade has had a history of being injured but so has Smith. As a matter of fact. In the last three NBA seasons. Wade has actually played in more regular season games then Smith has.
If we combine that with the fact that Wade is a better player then Smith is. I guess that makes Lue decision, not such a bad idea huh!.
