Lebron could only dream of having a jumper half as good as Allen's ever was. Allen Houston Playing in Cleveland is like MJ playing in Washington(doesnt make sense). He needs to stay retired, keep doing sportscenter, and enjoy those millions the Knicks gave him. To be honest i dont see the Cavs getting back to the conference finals....The Knicks will get farther than them...Come back to 34th and 7th Allen....The Mecca

Since the Cavs haven't made any major changes in the lineup since the disappointing series with San Antonio, the only way I see the Cavs getting back to the Finals is if 3 or more people have "quantum leaps" in their development. LeBron seems to be on track to have a "killer" season this year. Can Larry Hughes learn to shoot better, also (or can't you teach a (relatively) old dog new tricks)? I think Boobie will have a "breakout" year this year. One more person (other than LeBron and Boobie) needs to "step it up" this year? Who will it? Who wi-ill it be?!

We Cavaliers fans can only hope the rest of the team, esp Larry Hughes, is working as hard as on their games as LeBron is this summer.

Have you reviewed the league stats? Make a list of who's available that will be better than what we have! Having one of the top five centers needs improved on? Keep your eye on Booby this season. If LeBrons' jumper and three pointer are improved even a little, we may only need someone to in-bound the ball to him. The other four can come in when he sits down for a breather.

WRONG...... he dreams of being twice as good as Allen, thats why he gets better week after week. How many milestones has LeBron passed as the "Youngest Player To Ever.......", and there will be more. Allen would come to Cleveland to mentor LeBron and to be in the limelight of the "Chosen One".

His shot better improve, considering that Danny Ferry has decided to hibernate over the offseason.

All is not lost (yet) for this year; if he (Ferry) doesnt' get someone (i.e.-a stud point guard, in the opinion most of many observers) to help get us over the "hump" by the trading deadline (I think in January) THEN you can complain about him sitting on his rear end and doing nothing. Until then, we (good Cavs fans) should give him the benefit of the doubt.
