Not surprised the Cav's lost without LBJ.

"Modus Operandi" in preparations for the postseason.

Hopefully, a few days of rest will carry him into/through the playoffs.

Unfortuately, I think we need to appreciate what we are seeing on the court now in CLE. I don't think we will get to see Lebron for too much longer in our fair city.

LBJ, it has been great to watch you play in our/your hometown! I hope to eat some crow on this, but I think you might have to move to get "the ring".

You hit the nail on the head. I just got back from the Q and was very disappointed that LBJ sat on the side.Looked like the nose bleed section missed out on the big prizes too. I did get hit in the head with a LBJ doll and my husband caught it. I guess that was worth the $300 we spent!

Hope Brown learned that his offense sucks. Hope owners learned that the team needs more talent and a point guard.

With that $300 you could have upgraded your cable to watch James play in Brooklyn or NY every night, in a few years.

this is a 22 year old who in another era would be a senior in college. he has been pampered and coddled so much that his expectation of a ring right away now even makes people forgive and expect his selfish departure from his hometown. Not saying he is a bad kid - he isn't - but when a national magazine runs a picture of a 17 year old and calls him King....

a tryly great talent would be patient and work with his teammates to build a great team, not run with free agency to find a ready made team. we shall learn more of his character as time goes by. just like as soon as he got money, he moved to bath and then tore down a million dollar house to build a bigger one

Looks like it will be one playoff series and out for the Cavs. Coach Brown has not been able to get the new players from the big trade to make their impact. The team is in disarray. Hopefully, Ferry will find someone else to do it in the offseason once they are out of the playoffs with their projected whipping by Washington.

Wanna make a wager on this first round series?

Wally, last night, looked like he could "carry the mail" as a starter in the playoffs. Devin Brown is a great shot in the arm coming off the bench. Poor Damon Jones is probably rusty from lack of playing time.....but....he doesn't appear ready for prime time. Total playing time should probably be determined by how each is playing in a particular game. The Cavs' future in the playoffs doesn't look too promising.....but....there is always the audacity of hope!

The Cavs 1st and 2nd teams offenses beat Detroit last night. It was basically the 3rd string that loss to Detroit's 3rd string.

Nice to hear a feminine voice in what I suspect is an almost all-male arena. Be nice, boys, we have a lady among us! Sorry you missed out on the prizes.
This game was meaningless and it's hard to derive anything from it. Saturday the second season begins. Cavs will beat Washington again and then... I hope for the best and expect n exit in no more than 6.

I hope you realize that spending $300 at a basketball game is obsene and for being stupid and doing that, you deserve to see the star of the team sit. Serves you right.

I know the game was meaningless, but it would have been nice to get this one considering it was against the Pistons. Oh well....

What I did not enjoy seeing was Rasheed Wallace making his rounds among the Cavs after the game, shaking hands and hugging them.....and the Cavs obliging him -- including LeBron James.

Also, I found it interesting how many key players played. Why was Ben Wallace in there at all? Same with Devin Brown and Boobie.

Perhaps James was saving his self for the game that really matters like the playoff game.

Serves me right? I had a good time and i can afford it so whats your problem? Twenty of it went to the guy playing sax out front. He had no complaints. If spending money i earned ticks you off i suggest you get a life.

Here's how much I'm afraid of the Wizards....I'm not!!! Zilch, zero, natta, none. They won't beat us because Lebron and Co. ani't having it. Gilbert Arenas is talking his team into an early exit. I play sports adn nothing gets me more riled up than an overconfident bunch. They will be tight as a team trying to bcak up his and Stevenson's words. I like our position. I hope Wally just keeps getting more comfortable because he could be our x-factor in the series with all the attention Lebron and Z will be getting. Can't wait until Saturday's tip-off. Go Cavs!!!
