I think the Cavs will be making a great move to bring back Allen Houston. I wish the Knicks would think out of the box and go after Allen. He was a greaat player and I think he will help any team win games. Good job Cavs

What are the Cavs smoking? Put a pair of air jordans on Allen's walking cain. He's Done. One of the Knicks biggest mistakes, besides relying on Patrick Ewing all those years. You might as well put Spike Lee on the court. He'll do just as well......

Cavs bringing Allen Houston back can help that team. King James and Allen Houston would be great together. But a better idea for Allen Houston come to the knicks as Assistant Coach and have Patrict Ewing come with him. Allen, Patrick and Hub Williams get the Knicks back to the play off.

Please explain the molecular science behind Gus morphing into Ernestine.

<quoted text> Huh? He's 11th in three-point shots MADE, not in percentage. In other words, he's a gunner. In fact, as accuracy goes, he ain't all that good. Over the course of his last five seasons, he only had one season shooting threes over 40%. His rebounding stinks, he's a lousy passer, and he can't move worth a lick anymore. Come to think of it, given Ferry's track record of mental retardation, Houston is a perfect Cavalier type of guy. Flush away some cap space on the has-been stiff.
Sorry, my bad, he's 21st ALL TIME in 3PFG%. He's .0001% behind Mark Price at #19. He was a gunner, but shot at an elite level. And I think the point is IF he can move. And he won't take any worthwhile cap space, which is also kind of the point.

of course allan's knees feel fine. He hasn't used them for 2 years. As soon as he starts playing again he will find out those knees are sore again. but whatever.

you guys are crazy. Allan Houston is EXACTICLY the kind of guy the Cavs need. He will allow LeBron, who's too worn down, to come off the bench. This could be one of Ferry's best moves yet! Bring 'em in, Danny!

Actually, I wonder if LeBron is so worn down that we should just release him. Can he really be productive anymore?

Douche.

Sigh....with all of the major moves that have been going on this summer, WHAT do we go and do? We can't sign the scrubs we have now [Andy, Sasha] coz they're holding out for more money [thinking they are something special] and we're looking to get scrubs out of retirement. No offense, I like A Hou, but come on- when you have knee problems and have been out of the game for as long as he has, do you really think the wear and tear isn't going to affect you? Look at Michael when he came from retirement- it took him a while to adjust back and he didn't have any problems with his physical health.

Look at all the good guys we missed out on- we could've landed Eddie Jones but because of the stupid contracts and greedy bench players we have, we're going to end up with nothing. Oh well don't worry Lebron fans- in another 2 years Lebron will be wearing some other colours and will finally win a championship because the way things are going with stupid D. Ferry, you know L man isn't going to stay with that franchise for very long.
