Cavaliers select Alabama's Sexton with No. 8 pick

Shaquille O’Neal played for multiple different teams in the last years of his NBA career

Shaquille O'Neal says he hopes LeBron James doesn't make the same mistake he did in the back end of his career.

Even if James is intrigued by the possibility of playing with Sexton, Cleveland knew giving LeBron his way in the draft would not be almost enough in and of itself to convince him to stay.

Cleveland has the eighth overall pick, and it's a decision the team will have to make without knowing LeBron James' next move.

Compared to a younger version of current Milwaukee Bucks point guard Eric Bledsoe, the 19-year-old 6'3 190-pound Sexton is lightning quick and explosive in transition, with a knack for defense along with an ability to create his own shot. which is something that Cleveland sorely lacked in getting steamrolled by the now back-to-back National Basketball Association champion Golden State Warriors.

It appears the Cavaliers are doing everything they can to keep LeBron James.

He is the last piece of the Irving deal with Boston. "I just don't know if anybody wants to go there with him".

Sexton became the first Crimson Tide player selected since the Golden State Warriors chose forward-center Richard Hendrix in the second round back in 2008.

Joe Jackson is dead aged 89
Sources close to the Jackson family patriarch stated he was getting weaker as days progressed and were preparing for a farewell. Jackson eventually moved the family out to California where opened his own record label, Ivory Tower International Records.

He made the most of his opportunity. After the Cavs won the championship in 2016, James signed a two-year contract with an option for this season. But hey, there have been a lot of signs pointing to King James considering LA as his top choice, so it's certainly possible. And then you feel people, like, you feel them. "But, just go out there and lose yourself in it and everything will fall where it needs to".

"I think at this point in his life, it's more so of a lifestyle thing of where my family is going to be the most comfortable and where I'm going to be the happiest", Wade said on FOX Sports radio last week. But I like to be here.

I've heard that said, and it's true. I always wanted to be here.

The next few weeks are filled with plenty of unknowns. "But I feel like I'm not going to have to live up to anybody's shoes, but I'm going to come in and learn and be the best player I can be on the court as well as off the court". It wasn't until this season, when Altman traded away six veterans in return for Nance, Clarkson, Hood, and George Hill on February 8, that Lue had so many young players to work with on his team. A Kevin Love trade is also expected to happen, with another pick in the NBA Draft 2018 as an option. Will LeBron James remain with the Cavs? If he decides to leave, do they start to rebuild or try and compete for a playoff spot anyways? Depending on the player, he may answer more than one of those needs at once or at least soften the desperation.

Love has done everything asked of him even with all the fake trade rumors over the years.

But Young was long gone (to Atlanta) before the Cavs picked at No. 8. Then again, ahead of Thursday night's draft, it is #SmokeScreenSZN.

His numbers dipped in the postseason to 14.9 points on 39.2 percent shooting (34 percent from 3) and 10.2 rebounds, as Cleveland advanced to the NBA Finals for the fourth consecutive year. "I think (Knox) is a guy who's really helped him in this pre-draft process".
