I wonder if the "KNG OF AK" did 101 mph down I71 when he got off the airplane when he got home last night?

They need to get that man some help, his knee's will be gone by the age of 30. You can't keep doing this to your body for long, does not matter how young you are.

Yes Dog and Jose, it should be the greatest concern for Ferry and Brown.

LeBron is young and super strong, but I don't think it can last even to
age 30.

I don't have any records showing what Jordan's minutes were, but it seems
to this old memory that he played around 37-38 minutes a game. And he
played for a fine team that was able to spell him.

Get LeBron some help, get him into the 38 mpg area next year for sure.

Lebron is averaging 40.36 minutes a game, which is the least amount since his rookie year.

This has been a tough year for the Cavs fans. To not see any improvement on the roster, after making the finals last year (while other teams in the East got stronger), I wouldn't get your hopes up that the roster is going to change much, or at all, by the trading deadline. The Cavs will make the playoffs and we will see how far Lebron can take them.

Ferry has the next two offseasons to dramatically improve the roster, which will lead to Lebron resigning and Cleveland finally ending its championship drought.

If Ferry doesn't get the job done and Lebron walks away after the 2009/2010 season, it will be a very sad time for Cleveland sports fans. At least Ferry will have more salary cap space after this season, and tons of salary cap space after the 2008/2009 season.

They need to build around Lebron, AV, Gibson, and Z, everyone else is expendable.

If only we could have landed Ray Allen, Michael Redd, or Joe Johnson, instead of Larry Hughes...

If you like late-game drama, the Cavaliers are your team.

It seems quite often the Cavs just can't avoid it, even when they really should. But then again, it also seems like most times, they navigate their way to a victory. That, of course, is because close games are often decided by the best player, and the Cavs almost always have him.

"close games are often decided by the best player, and the Cavs almost always have him."

What this means is take away LeBron and the Cavs are evenly matched with a below .500 team that hasn't won a dozen games, and with him they need overtime and 132 points to win. This will not get the job done against Boston, Detroit, and other quality Eastern teams, although thankfully they are so few that the Cavs will make the playoffs. But unless there is dramatic improvement they won't get past the second round.

GOLLY GEE BEAVER! I cant believe that the lustless Cavs, the same ones who cant beat a team with a record over .500, beat those rough, tough, Memphis bunch...I mean, golly, King James, Mr. Break da speed laws, hit for those many points against the worst team in basketball! Golly, Beaver, I wish my city had a third rate team like that....

Poor game plan. We can't run and gun with anyone, unless Lebron scores 51 points. We will slow it down against S.A. and have a chance to beat them if we play Defense. That is the only way that we beat Detroit last year and Boston and Dallas this year.
