It is about time that Andy got some very long awaited credit for what he does for the Cavaliers. It is a shame that Hickson has replaced Andy in the starting lineup. Hickson can not light a candle as to what Andy does. He does not have the experience and Hickson needs to be the one who comes off the bench. We are avid Cavs fans and have not missed a single game.

Andy comes off the bench at the perfect time when the energy is needed.

And if you don't miss any games, like you say you do, you must also be aware that Andy has been getting 2-4 times the minutes that JJ has been getting.

I like the rotation that the Cavs have been using.......... they can go small or go big now, and that's ONE of the keys to the success they have been having.

There have to be consequenses...if not an overturned victory (won't happen) or replay (won't happen), at the very least the shot clock operator has to be relieved of his duties. You can't make that mistake. Not once, and especially one time, late in the game, in circumstances that benefit the home team.

Seriously, what happens if the same thing, or something worse happens against the Cavs when they next play in Atlanta?? What if it appears to be blatant payback?? What can the league do, if there's no consequence for the team of clock operator in this case??

It would be a very, very bad precedent.

I agree with you. But to make it REALLY fair....... what about all the BAD calls we've witnessed? I'm talking about the ones that REALLY happen and the proof is on the replays. A lot of times a ref is standing right there, but apparently he's wearing his horse blinders that day. There's more than one precedent that needs to get set is what I'm saying.

Yes we are aware that Andy plays more overall minutes than JJ.967 min for Andy and 638 min. for JJ. We DO keep up with the team's stats and if you do the Math Andy is NOT playing 2 to 4 times more minutes than JJ. Tell me this if you were on the team and had the choice of being a starter or being a player coming off the bench which would YOU choose? And what do you have to say about Daniel Gibson now being the ODD MAN OUT?????

You need to check your stats...Andy's in the 30+ and JJ is 9-11, a 16 & 17, anyway........

Booby's out because of his production. Don't get me wrong, I luv that kid. When he's hot he's hot, and when he's not. Those kind of players make good decoys, and that's when THEY get the ball. I remember when we got him, Bron took him 'under his wing', so don't you think if he was good enough to be a starter, Bron would have had a little some say so? I don't think they'll trade him.

Don't look at it as being bad if you come of the bench, because they are most valuable lately as our bench is getting quite a bit of credit for the wins! That's one place Cavs were hurting, and if Z is ok with it, and we can play big with the Twin Towers and throw Andy in the mix, depending on who we are playing, THAT IS GOLD.

GO CAVS
