By the time the 2017-18 NBA MVP is announced, LeBron James will be just about halfway to age 34.
Almost immediately after the deal was announced right at midnight, the start of free agency, Cleveland Cavaliers General Manager Koby Altman was maligned for the signing of veteran point guard Jose Calderon.
LeBron James recorded his 59th career triple-double and the Cavaliers won for the 16th time in 17 games, 121-112 over the Los Angeles Lakers.
The Winter Meetings ended with so much as a whimper from the Cleveland Indians, about as expected. The non-tender deadline is in the rearview as well, and free agency is fully underway, though a slow market.
The Cleveland Indians were not terribly active in Thursday’s Rule 5 Draft, selecting a minor league player, but losing three players from their system.
So far this off-season, the Cleveland Indians have lost 128 1/3 innings in relief pitching, with Joe Smith’s additional 18 1/3 seeming likely to head to Houston.
Since his major league debut in 2015, Armstrong appeared in 39 contests, posting a 1-0 record and 3.53 ERA. He allowed 17 runs all earned on 37 hits over 43 1/3 innings, while walking 17 and striking out 38.
It is year 15 of LeBron James’s NBA career, and he is still doing things that no one has ever done before.
Shaw had his best season with the Indians in 2017 by FIP (2.96) and WAR (1.6).
Kevin Love will also return to the rotation after missing Saturday’s matchup with Philadelphia due to a sore left hip.
