It is really coming to light how much the Cavs hated each other before the trade deadline.
JR Smith survived the purged and seems to be in a much better place now according to ESPN The Undefeated.
Injured forward Kevin Love yelled out, “There you go! There you go!” Sharpshooter Kyle Korver gave a look of pleasant surprise. Guard J.R. Smith yelled out, “We got an [expletive] squad now.” And before James hit the locker room door, former NBA great Kevin Garnett hugged him and said, “Y’all look so different.”
We will see if the Cavs can ride that momentum into another’s Finals appearance.
