    "Im really excited to play for the Cavs. I can hopefully get some playing time on this squad. Back in LA i was playing behind guys like Gasol, Kobe, Bynum, World Peace, Barnes, Devin Ebanks, Shaq, Brian Cook, Smush Parker, Chris Mihm, and Rick Fox. Now that Im on a team with less depth, hopefully i can get some playing time. I bring Championship experience to this young inexperienced team. I've attended and watched many finals series and won 2 championships. I know what a contending team needs and what to bring. Im ready to bring the Cavaliers a championship"

    okay...

    I'm really excited to play for the Cavs.
    guessing the cavs are a little less excited

    I can hopefully get some playing time on this squad.
    don't hold your breath there skippy

    Back in LA i was playing behind guys like Gasol, Kobe, Bynum, World Peace, Barnes, Devin Ebanks, Shaq, Brian Cook, Smush Parker, Chris Mihm, and Rick Fox.
    the key word here is behind. and btw, there were a lot more than the nine you mentioned

    Now that Im on a team with less depth, hopefully i can get some playing time.
    less depth does not necessarily equate to more desperation

    I bring Championship experience to this young inexperienced team.
    unfortunately, you bring zero talent or value

    I've attended and watched many finals series and won 2 championships.
    another key word -- watched. fine, you get an "a" in attendance

    I know what a contending team needs and what to bring.
    so do i -- talent, which neither you nor your new team possess

    Im ready to bring the Cavaliers a championship
    now you're embarrassing yourself

    ... and then some... well stated, Irish...

    Luke's a nice kid but I hope that he learned something in college because his NBA days are numbered...

    he never has to work again. that 30 million contract should last a few generations of family.

    Unless he's using Terrell Owens tax advisor... $80M lost and gone for good...

    I like the trickle down comment elsewhere... give too much money to naturally talented morons and then watch as less agile but far smarter monkees fleece them bit by bit... isn't it ironic? Not.

    Luke Walton will wind up with a coaching job somewhere after his NBA days (cough, cough) are done.
