James and Team USA. LeBron needs to give it a rest this year. And Coach Brown needs to develop a rotation that allows LeBron to get a bit more rest during games. There were times this year when LeBron was obviously tired and his fundamentals suffered for it -- poorer free throw shooting and not making makeable shots. Give the man a break!!

Although I would like to see us sign both guys, I don't think we should keep them if it prevents us from getting a proven floor general who actually can shoot. If we lose Sasha we still have Shannon Brown who I think will be an entirely different player next year. You can't keep overpaying for potential. If someone wantsw to break the bank on Sasha let them go right ahead. I think Andy kind of hurt his value with alot of bone-head decisions throughout the playoffs. He's got to get stronger so he doesn't have to flop so much and takethose unnecessary hits. He is a good rebounder and solid defender but we shouldn't break the bank on him either unless they find a taker for Drew Gooden. Overall, great season guys.

Let Pavs go, and use Shannon. otherwise Shannon becomes a waste. We can save money. Pavs is good, but not THAT good. Andy is a must keep.

We have to ride another year out with most of this roster, unless someone wants Hughes. Larry may be okay with LeBron is we get an offensive coach to make it work. If they don't, the fans and media will be relentlessly critical. LeBron needs someone he respects. Brown kowtows to him too much for LeBron to improve.

If Danny ferry does get a draft pick and he waste it on another guard, he needs to be fired. We have too many holes to go out there and get another guard.

Danny Ferry, can you say CENTER?

Both guys are expendable in my opinion, especially Sasha. He disappeared in the last two series of the playoffs. I'll give him somewhat of a pass in the Pistons series because he was running 5 miles a night trying to guard Rip Hamilton.....but against the Spurs, we needed Sasha to take advantage of his matchup against 94-year-old Michael Finley, and he didn't.

I like his game -- his athleticism, his ability to drive to the basket.....but his outside shot is just as inconsistent as Marshall and Jones.

With Andy, you can probably get better value in a trade. Still though, it leaves a big void at the backup 4- or 5-spot.

Right, fire Derry Ferry. It took him two years to get the team to the Finals. He obviously doesn't know what he's doing. The Spurs should have fired Pop when they didn't win seven straight chamionships. And Florida State's athletic director should be toast.

The Cavaliers must have Andy back. His ability to draw fouls is important. Sasha has been very inconsistent, now we should just let him go and use Shannon Brown or even Gibson. In my opinion, Gibson is more of a SG than a PG. We need a young and decent center, since Ilgauskas is getting old and won't be around for long. That still leaves the PG problem, which I say just try to get a good trade with anyone. And to the idiot who even mentioned Danny Ferry is bad, he's gotten our team to the Finals hasn't he? We got Lebron, and a few new promising rookies, I say next year will be great.

I'm a Clevelander, living in Ca. I use to go to the games at the Arena on Eucild ave. I'm so proud of what the Cavs did this season. They made me fill good to have them one of the two best teams in the league this year, especially when you live around Laker fans. GREAT JOB!!! WELL DONE!

FERRY got Cleveland to the finals? Have you been snorting asbestos? How did Ferry get Cleveland to the finals? PAXSON'S players got Cleveland to the finals. Well, actually Paxson's PLAYER got Cleveland to the finals. All Ferry succeeded in accomplishing was single-handedly torching the salary cap for YEARS. The man is a pyromaniac. The General Sherman of the NBA.

Yes, they were in the finals, but to say they were one of the two best teams in the league is bordering on insanity.

Cleveland have about four (4) players that should be gone ASAP! Wesley, Jones and Snow is a waste of money in the system that Cleveland is attempting to play. Poliard is the fourth that should go if Brown is not going to use him. Brown should have used in the finals against Dunkin! Brown is even suspect in my opinon! I am a big fan of Cleveland and Lebron, get him some help quick and stop procrastinating General Manager!!

the cavs are a great team. i love there style of play. lebron is my favorite player. the cavs need one thing to be able to take next years championship and thats lebron maturing. he is a great player but he lets other teams shut him down escpecially throughout the postseason. if he can over come his one weakness of settling for jumpshots instead of driving and making contact when teams shut him down the cavs will be the 07-08 champs

First of all, you can't have Billups. He needs to stay put. But if thats his choice I'd be disappointed but I'm sure you guys would welcome him with open arms. He didn't do great job as a leader this year. But he still has great leadership and can still hit those clutch shots. He still got it. Now we have another team to fear. Look out Western Conference, the tension is starting to Rise.

If we can get Billups, that would be great. If we can't get Billups, any chance we can get Kobe? I would trade Andy, Gibson and Hughes for him (if the Lakers will take Hughes). Maybe even throw in Shannon Brown if they need someone else. I don't know if this would be workable with the salary cap, though. We could have a starting 5 of Jones, Kobe, Lebron, Gooden and Z, with Marshall, Snow, Pollard and Sasha coming off the bench. Yeah, we still wouldn't have a solid point guard, but with Lebron and Kobe playing together it wouldn't be that important. Noone would be able to stop us with Lebron and Kobe on the floor together- it would be a perfect match since Lebron likes to play-make and Kobe loves to shoot. Not going to happen, but it's nice to dream.

Hey Timmy, I think you need a better center. Someone more athletic and who can run up down, and better defend his opponent. I don't see that in Z. If you had a guy like even Jermaine O'neal, the series would have been different. Z wasn't guarding Duncan as he should. Get a center, and maybe a point guard, and the Cavs will be in the 'center' of the NBA.
