"[He's] a hard-driving, big spending, win-now owner". But this Clippers gig that was formally announced on Monday, with West hired as a consultant to help take this underachieving team to new heights, is something altogether different.
James effectively turned Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert into a sympathetic figure who ripped LeBron and carried the message of frustrated fans.
Billups is yet to make a decision and there are hesitations with the potential departure of LeBron James next year, however, the National Basketball Association champion has taken a tour of Cleveland's facilities and met with a number of executives to seriously discuss the proposition.
Though the Lakers are still the frontrunners to land George, due to the forward's insistence to sign with the Purple & Gold next summer, there are teams willing to gamble on the Pacers star as a one-year rental.
The news doesn't come as a major shock, league insiders have projected Billups to Cleveland ever since former GM David Griffin's contract was not renewed. Cleveland could have a busy summer as it looks to revamp its roster after losing to the Warriors in five games in this year's Finals.
The fact is that the Cavs would get to the Finals again with either player, even with an improved Eastern Conference. Assistant general manager Koby Altman remains with the team and is part of a group overseeing draft preparation and trade talks.
After a day of trades that involved four different National Basketball Association teams, some might think that superstars such as Paul #George, or Jimmy Butler might be next.
"If no one appreciated you Griff I did, and hopefully all the people of Cleveland!". Knowing a thing or two about super teams, James has to realize his Cavaliers aren't equipped to beat the Warriors as constituted. "We got us 1 (trophy)".
With James's future at the Cavaliers uncertain, an option to opt out of his deal after next season, there are concerns that an exodus may take place at Cleveland. The Pacers seem ready to trade George before they lose him for nothing in 2018 free agency.
But Irving will be just 26 next year and under contract for another season. Billups is also close friends with Cavs coach Tyronn Lue.
LeBron James tweeted his support of Griffin. He's 32, with 14 seasons behind him and perhaps only a few more dominant years remaining.
Pluto says Gilbert has a rocky history with his general managers since he bought the team in 2005. It's possible Billups could fill that vacancy.
