Congratulations Damon! This award shows the rap he gets for being selfish is highly over-rated. I've greatly enjoyed having Damon play for the Cavs! After last night, perhaps he ws needed to put the dagger in the Wiz once again.

I agree. Damon is always clapping his hands and trying to motivate the team. Wish we could see more of him on the court. He has attitude, in a good way, the kind that stands-up to the Wizard's none sense.

Microcosm of Playoff Officiating:

10:33 3rd Qtr
Daniels goes 1 on 3, completely out of control and slams into Delonte with a solid shoulder to the chest... Blocking Foul.
5 seconds later DeSturbed hits a jumper.

Forget the final 90 seconds.
It's stolen possessions, and the resulting points like this that define the NBA's postseason.
Awful.

It looked like they finally got to LeBron lastnight. After the slap to the jaw he had a look of being tired of the Wizzards foul play and just decided to stop going to the basket. It was obvious that he took a cheap shot but that's the first time I've seen LBJ looked to have given in. I know it's a team sport but let's be honest Washington has better talent but his teammates did what he've asked them to do all year and that's keep it close in the fourth. I feel that there are players then allstars and then superstars. We have plenty of players, lots of allstars but very few superstars and LeBron was just an allstar lastnight. No matter what you can't allow the other opponent to decide how you're going to play. I'm a big LeBron James but if he wants to be considered as one of the all time greats he must be prepared for far worse treatment than what the Wizzards are dishing out if he don't believe me just go back and watch the 80's and 90's playoff games. There are other ways to take over a game besides scoring. Just his penetration places teams in foul trouble which soften up their defense. All I'm saying to LeBron is don't ever allow the opponent to detour your game especially in the playoffs. That's streetball class chapter 23 title "How to be the Best"
