I did not have to watch the Cavs during Lebron's absence, however, now that he's back and I'm watching again I see how little I really missed by not watching... wow... It is so bad.... I can't believe a guy 7 foot 3 can't block his man out or create serious problems for those folks who decide to drive the lane... but, our friend Z wants to play guard and can't get back to block the lane. Oh well, it's early.. I'm glad again that it's not my 71 million going out the door for these players... what a waste.... One basketball player, and a whole lot of guys to wanna be and are making lots of money for nothing... Yikes.... we are in Cleveland... and getting paid for it...

Wow the Cavs have returned to their bad ways. Hughes 4 of 15 shooting, AV had only 6 rebounds and let plenty of rebounds get by him.

The one man team, LeBron played great again, hasn't got a prayer at making the finals at this point in the season.

Ol "4 for 14" is back. Larry Hughes' one night stand with offense isn't dog gone it's long gone. Complain about defense all you want but Hughes is a drag on the entire team's offense and defense. Those long balls he puts up always end up in opposition hands for fast break points. The guy s killing us. His offensive display the other night demonstrates the importance of having another consistent weapon to free everyone else up.

The Cleveland Cavaliers, this year, seem to be confused and lack consistant effort. This would seem to include both the coach and the players including LeBron. Is it because of a mindset? They seem to have the same problem for stretches last season.

Hey OMG,

You're the one who kept saying AV was the answer... nice call. Last night he had the worst +/- of any player on the team. Guess who was second? Let me give you a hint:

SNOW MUST GO!

Snow had 2 points, 1 ass, and 2 to. I guess that's Ferry idea of a pt grd. AV is out of shape and puffing. He'll get good in a month or so.
