Its a shame the way things have turned out with Shannon Brown, no reason he can't eventually be a stronger, healthier, better shooting version of Larry Hughes at a much lower price.

wow , you have one of the most advertised athletes in all of sports on your team and you lose 3 nationally televised games that you were scheduled to appear . that says a lot about that team (the roster make up) and the style of basketball they play(it's not fan friendly), that does not look good for gm ferry and coach brown

They really screwed up this Shannon Brown situation. I don't think he'll ever be an All-Star, but he'll probably go somewhere else and average like 12 or 15 points. That'd be nice production for us to have.....too bad Mike Brown doesn't want to ever give him a real chance.

The Cavs are a big disappointment this year. Almost half way through the season and they’re playing .500 ball. Can you imagine where they would be without LeBron. The major problem, IMO, is with the head coach, Mike Brown is unable to motivate this team. They came out of the gate slow, played terrible when LeBron was out, and are still inconsistent. The team lacks a sense of urgency when playing. One thing that a head coach must be able to do is motivate and Brown seems unable to do this. Also Danny “Deer in the headlights” Ferry should not wait until next year to retool this team. Start making small moves now to build a foundation for next year when he can offer big money to any big name free agent available. They need to get tougher in the middle on defense more than they need a dominate point guard. Find a point guard who can bring the ball up court, play some defense, and knock down open jump shots like John Paxson did for the Chicago Bulls and Michael Jordon. But start the changes with the head coach.
