They just flat out aren't fun to watch without LeBron.

Larry Hughes actually played a good game, except for that crucial turnover in the last minute. Actually there were three turnovers in the last minute; mindless passing mistakes and not so much a good move the the Bobcats defense. I saw some progress. Obviously the Cavs need another big piece to return to the finals.

Bobcats tried to give them the game, and the Cavs were unable to capitalize on it. Missing a good point guard sure showed last night.

9-12 and going no where but down.

LeBron - heal that finger.

There isn't a single Cavs guard who can take care of the ball. With Larry "4 for 14" Hughes shoots, well.

I sure hope LeBron can recover from his boo boo soon.

The Cavs are in a world of hurt without him.

I just hope he does'nt come back on the same night as Andy.

His finger's broke, He's good for a couple more weeks out at least. Didn't you hear Triv say so today on WTAM?

I thought without LBJ the Cavs are a mediocre team. I was wrong. They are what they were pre-James—one of if not the worst team(s) in the league.
But heck, there's always a bright side. It's early in the season, plenty of time for James to heal. I wouldn't judge Hughes completely on his first game back, although he should have plenty of experience playing in after long layoffs. He should get sharper. Varajao has to play himself back into form as Sacha is still doing.
If James comes back even after a month, the team should still make the open-to-almost-everyone NBA playoffs. Then, who knows? Other teams suffer injuries, too.

I no longer remember the exact details, but there were a few games last season when LeBron was unable to play. The team rallied, played well through the adversity, and even won a time or two. The team's collpase in LeBron's absence is a sign of slippage - big time slippage.

It just shows the basketball world how truly awesome Lebron is. The team sucks without him. He would make any average player look better than they are with his talent, passing ability and knowledge of how the game should be played. The CAVS need to consider serious roster changes when the contracts of stiffs expire (you know who they are).

Breaking news. They aren't fun to watch with LeBron either. The only difference is they win when he plays. Their style of basketball cures my insominia. I highly recommend doctors prescribe this vs prescription medications.

Get rid of Mike Brown. He couldn't coach a high school team. When you can't muscle out a win or two when your best player is out, you're not a coach. Anyone could pass LeBron the ball and say "win it for us." There is no system. There is no offense other than three pointers, which we shoot poorly. When other teams get lucky and obtain the best player in the league, they go out and get a proven coach (think Paul Westhead out, Pat Riley in for the Lakers, Collins out, Phil Jackson in for the Bulls). A lifelong assistant coach should not be learning the ropes on LeBron's time. There is no salary cap on coaches, Mr. Gilbert. Get rid of Brown, and if Ferry doesn't like it, get rid of him, too. Please, Mr. Gilbert. This is not just a rough spot in the season. This is an indictment of the head coach.

Although I agree with Coach Browns Defensive philosophy you cannont win games unless your team scores more points than the other team. How abou that! Major News Flash! Ira Newble and Eric Snow are not going to put points on the board for the Cavs but they got major minutes last night. Larry Hughes was 6-17 last night with 20 points. Thats still a horrible shooting percentage! I'll give him the benefit of the doubt here with just coming back. Daniel Gibson, who I think can shoot the lights out, is getting killed on the defensive end of the floor. Either this kid is to small or cant play defense. The bigger guards are runing right over him. Sasha still is not the Sasha of last year yet. However Mike Brown appears to quick to bench him when he makes a mistake. I've seen Larry Hughes make multiple turnovers and Coach Brown never takes him out. Sasha did not play only for a minute or two in the whole second half. Shannon Brown is not a good defensive player yet but Offensively he's got hops and potential. What concerns me is that Sasha sat the bench for almost 3 years before Coach Brown decided he's got talent and only because Larry Hughes was injured, again. Shannon Brown has set the bench for 3 years before Coach Brown had to play him out of desparation or showcasing his talent, because Larry & Lebron are injured. It appears to me that maybe Coach Brown is not a good judge of talent. When everyone is healthy the Cavs will have the bigest starting backcourt in the NBA along with the best rebounding frontline in the NBA. With all of the minutes these players are getting this will benefit the Cavs down the road big time. Right now it looks as if Coach Brown doesnt have any direction or focus offensively and the team is in a major slump

Hey Mr. Mensa......I don't need Triv to think for me.

He's a big loud mouth.

No wonder that you can relate to him.

Same team back as last year, in a few weeks. Also the same coach. There does not need to be more said!

Triv may be a loud mouth, but he works for the home of the Cavs radio, and knows every sports figure in Cleveland and gets all the inside stuff. He knows what's going on. He has not been wrong once.

We all make mistakes, however Mr. Mensa has taken it to a whole new level.
