The Cleveland Cavaliers have experienced a trying offseason. There was the front office mess resulting in General Manager David Griffin’s departure. Then came the leaked news that All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving had requested a trade. And finally there was the “early preview” of the Cavs’ potential uniforms for next season. As they say, bad news tends to come in threes.
Although things could’ve gone better for Cleveland this offseason (obviously), this summer wasn’t entirely bad. After all, the Cavs signed point guard and former MVP Derrick Rose on the cheap. This addition, along with the great LeBron James, now gives Cleveland a roster featuring two past MVPs. While this doesn’t guarantee an NBA championship, if history shows us anything, utilizing two former MVPs doesn’t hurt. See for yourself, as we examine past instances of NBA MVPs joining forces.
