Michael Arace commentary: It's fitting Cavs to open playoffs vs. Celtics

If you are a Cleveland Cavaliers fan, or even just a casual NBA fan, you remember May 11, 2010. Oh, you might not remember the exact date, or that it was a Tuesday, but you remember the game — Game 5 of the Eastern Conference semifinals. The Boston Celtics were in the Q. That one. It was the night LeBron James unofficially parted ways with the Cavaliers, the night the Cavs cowered and lost 120-88 to Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, Ray Allen, Rajon Rondo and company. It was the worst playoff loss in Cavs history, in the 47th year without a major sports title in Cleveland.

Report: Kevin Garnett Likely to Return for 21st Season

Marc Stein reports that Kevin Garnett is likely to return to the Wolves next season. Not a ton of meat here, but Marc Stein of ESPN tweeted this: No definitive word yet, but rumbles out of Sota persist that Kevin Garnett is still leaning toward coming back for season No. 21 in 15-16— Marc Stein (@ESPNSteinLine) April 13, 2015 This would be his 21st season in the NBA and his age 39 season. Garnett was re-acquired by the Wolves at the trade deadline this season from the Brooklyn Nets, making his return to the franchise where he got his start and played for a dozen incredible...

Sometimes, the trades you don't make...

As the 3 p.m. trade deadline approached on February 19, the Nets front office were juggling a lot of balls.If everything had worked out, the franchise would have been transformed.  Brook Lopez would have been gone. The Nets were going to, in the words of Adrian Wojnarowski, turn the keys to Reggie Jackson, who would supplant Deron Williams. The Kevin Garnett for Thaddeus Young deal was not the priority. It didn't work out that way ... at all. KG needed to fax or email his trade clause waiver documents to the league office. That didn't happen until 2:54 p.m. Six minutes to spare. If that...

The other benefits of KG-Young deal: Nets saved nearly $10 million

Thaddeus Young is now averaging 14.4 points per game and shooting 53.3 percent from three since joining the Nets 15 games ago in the deadline day deal that sent Kevin Garnett to the Timberwolves. In Friday night's seemingly never-ending triple overtime win, he had 24 points, five rebounds, three assists and shot 3-of-5 from deep. Not bad. And as Marc Stein reports Saturday, the deal also saved the Nets around $7 million in luxury taxes. The trade that sent Kevin Garnett back to Minnesota for Thaddeus Young shaved Brooklyn's luxury-tax bill from slightly more than $26 million to...
