The Cleveland Cavaliers have been active participants in the market as the NBA's trade deadline approaches.
It started with the Cavs trading guard Isaiah Thomas—who had struggled to fit in since he arrived in Cleveland—to the Lakers. Then things just got wild. With a flurry of rapid-fire trades, Cleveland completely remade its roster.
As each new move popped up on Twitter—I'm sure Woj's fingers are sore at this point—NBA fans grew more stunned. Could this all really be happening?
NBA fans' responses were, predictably, incredible. Memes and hilarious tweets were flying. Below are some of our favorites.
