Actually, he does bring out a lot of team-specific information. The last one, of course, is why I posted it here.

That and because I am poor. . . .

Well, sort of. Change won't happen until the 2019 season and:

The team will continue to sell Chief Wahoo gear because if it stops doing so, it will lose ownership of the trademark, and others will be able to use the symbol as they please.

Not sure if Cleveland got fleeced or a good overall deal.

Cleveland just cleared LA's cap space for Lebron and another max deal next year. Which seems a bit foolish if Cleveland had any hope of his staying. LA could have gotten a pizza in return and this is a great deal for them just because of that.

In return, Cleveland gets a slightly better longshot chance at a title, and since LeBron is leaving anyway, makes it even more likely he goes out west. That probably won't really matter, but might help Gilbert from writing angry stuff in comic sans if he sees LeBron less.

It has been said that Cleveland lost the Isaiah Thomas deal twice.

Cleveland avoiding the sunk cost fallacy and realizing Thomas was worse than useless to them was in a way a win.

Cleveland maybe did better than I thought. LeBron got rid of some useless teammates for ones that are slightly better, younger, and thrilled to be complimentary pieces to LeBron on a team that could very well make the finals.

Seems like a win/win trade, really. Lakers get cap space and LeBron gets some try-hards. Much more likely (and fun) for him to try to HeroBall his way to the finals with people that aren't going to be moping around because they aren't getting attention.
