The Cleveland Cavaliers are in a very good position this year to defend their title as last year's champions. They have many all-stars on the team including great names like Lebron James and Kyrie Irving. Now, in the middle of their great season they have worked out a trade, in which they would get Kyle Korver, a very good pull up shooter. Many people think this unfair; although, the Golden State Warriors have four all-stars on their starting line up, including two MVPs. This trade is very reasonable and very smart for the Cavs, in which it will give them more options, in order to become a better team. Basketball is a game of getting better as a team, and trying to become the best team you can be. This is only making the Cavs better and other teams will have to face it that they are going to be unstoppable in which they have many great players in different positions, unlike the Warriors in which they have many great players but they all are used to being the star and all play the same way.

The Cleveland Cavaliers are the defending their title as the champions from the 2016-17 season. First I would like to class with my opponent. With a salary of 5 million, it is obvious that Kyle Korver is not a very good basketball player. If he were to be a starter on Cleveland and replace JR Smith, then Cleveland would lose a very good starter, all because they traded off Mo Williams Mike Dunleavy, as well as losing a first round pick to the Atlanta Hawks. "We are extremely pleased to be able to add a player and person the caliber of Kyle Korver to our Cavs family," Cavs general manager David Griffin said in a statement. "Among the most prolific and dynamic 3-point shooters in NBA history, a selfless and team-first competitor, Kyle brings all of the elements of Cavs DNA that we covet on and off the floor." David Griffin is probably not in his right mind, giving up three different players, just for a pul up shooter that can barely knock any shots down. The Golden State Warriors agreed to sign Kevin Durant, a decision that he made himself. Giving Mo Williams, Mike Dunleavy, and the first round player is a very bad decision for the Cleveland Cavaliers. By trading off two of their best players, the Cavaliers are dropping themselves deeper down a hole they can't climb out of.
