So with the same roster, roughly the same system and the same coach as last season, what is the difference between the Cavaliers last year and this year? Chemistry.

So Larry Hughes is unhappy coming off the bench.
If Larry would start being consistent, hit some shotsss, etc etc, he wouldn't be coming off the bench. The only consistency he has shown is his inability to contribute. What a waste. I don't know how the Cavs could get rid of him and his bloated salary.

We stink! We won't win 40. Last season was a fluke! I can't wait to play for the Knicks.

For God's sake make the Miller trade! How long do we have to hear that Ferry is "exploring" options. We need more than that. Mike Brown's coaching needs to be seriously questioned at this point. His rotations are terrible. He never has figured that out. And every time he calls a timeout and the Cavaliers need a score he calls a bonehead play. This team is in total disarray and Brown shares most of that blame. It is his job to keep the team together - not the players.

The Cavs are a team of one-dimensional players. It is to Brown's credit he has managed to make them a winning team. They lack outside shooting, ball handling, a point guard, and now defense. I don't think anyone in this league is shocked by their current record.
East Side Eddie, it isn't Brown who made the Cavaliers a winner. It is Lebron. Pure and simple. I used to give Brown credit for the defensive intensity but that has all gone out the window now.

The Cavs will get it together. Good teams always do. This is a good team but not a great team. The cream always seems to rise to the top at the end of the year and the Cavs will be there. However the same issues of last year still haunt them this year. Their lack of an offensive scheme or flow is nothing short of disastrous. If Coach Brown was with the Spurs he at least should have taken notice of how well they move the ball on offense. Gibson is a great shooter but not a point guard and gives it up defensively as he appears to be small. Sasha looks like he is still in training camp and looks out of sync and the only time he's played with any fire this year was when he was guarding Kobe. Hughes is having a tough year. No doubt. I beleive that Coach has to get everyone involved in the offensive end of things and not send 4 guys to one side of the court and watch Lebron play 1 on 5. I can coach that. The good thing is, is that this Team is young and can grow. Lebron, Sasha, Gibson, Andy, Drew, Shannon Brown, are all between 22-25 so there is still a learning curve here. It also looks like to me that Lebron has no respect for the Coach. It seems to be becoming noticeable much more so than ever. Any thoughts?

larry hughes is doing poorly on purpose. he knows the cavalier management will not let all 12 million dollars of him sit on the bench. so until he is placed back into his natural two-guard slot, he'll speak his disposition through his game. starting damon jones at the point seems logical. further keeping eric snow or devin brown on the side for defense after a run, while allowing dan gibson to come off the bench for hughes. sasha needs to sit and train with shannon and ira newble, meanwhile. the only problem with our front court are the minutes. drew gooden certainly should get the nod at power forward every game. however, ilguaskas should be sharing minutes with andy depending on the opposing match up night in and night out. through this, lebron can just man the wheel and destroy while mike brown sits, smiles, and occasionally groin-chops / pelvic thrusts simultaneously. the end.
