The Cavs handled Washington last year too, so the trade doesn't all of a sudden look great to me.
Well then you're a moron like the rest of the idiots saying that. It's not even worth explaining why you're an idiot -- it's not worth it. You just are.

Umm...and what would you expect the refs to do that they didn't do Monday night?

Wow, good justification as to why I'm wrong. What's their record since the trade? So you don't have any actual facts to support it, just a typical idiot. They may be better, then I'd expect a trip to the finals, or come back here and eat your words.

hdawg... I'll be happy to explain to you why the Cavs are better because of the trade. Buckle up your bike helmet and let's go.

*Addition by subtraction. Long gone are the Larry Hughes games, 4-19 shooting, 12 points, 6 turnovers and countless "oh well, I kinda tried" shrugs after the miscues. Larry is a LOSER, always has been and always will be. Could he be a great player? Absolutely, but the guy has no heart. Add to that awful play when he's on the court, the guy misses a ton of games every season due to injuries. No team with Larry Hughes or Drew Gooden playing on it will win a championship... ever.
Long gone is the Drew Gooden routine. Stellar numbers and a double double one night, followed by blown assignments, a vanishing act on both ends of the court, and countless p*ssed off stares from LeBron. When it matters most, Drew matters the least, and to the point where Mike Brown sat him in the 4th quarter because of it. When we needed him in the Finals last spring, he was nowhere to be found. He and his stupid beard and man-crush on Deshawn Stevenson can stay in Chicago.

*Now the good stuff, the reasons the new guys are a fit...

Delonte West is a nice point guard, a gritty guy who likes to defend, and he can shoot the ball. Between he and Daniel Gibson, the point guard position is solved.

Wallyworld is showing in this Wizards series why the Cavs brought him here. The guy can flat out score, and when he's comfortable and shooting like this, the Cavs are unguardable.

Ben Wallace is the tough, enforcer-type guy the Cavs have been looking for since LeBron arrived. Nevermind the stats, Ben is here to be a force in the middle, use his fouls to keep the paint clean, and PROTECT LEBRON. Be Charles Oakley 2.0

Joe Smith is the best player in this trade. Great all-around player. The kind of person you cant have enough of on a team. He's what Drew Gooden SHOULD be if he werent so damn stupid.

...That's why this trade was made, and we're better for it

Question: Does the NBA's decision to not suspend Haywood mean that if a Cavs player does the same to him, he cannot be suspended?

Its kinda funny how the NBA blatantly favors lebron just so they can market the league. The calls you guys are getting are disgusting. There is no way you get 21 more foul attempts, there is something wrong there. There is no question the cavs have been better in the series. I wish we hadn't of talked before the series like that. I think we are the better team when we actually get our act together but we haven't showed it and deserve to be down 2-0. We had a golden opportunity in game 1 to win it when you guys missed 3 shots but we wasted 3 possessions at 84-82. That game threw us off.

Also i think Lebron James is over-rated, doesn't mean he isn't in the top 3 players in the leage, but by no means does he deserve any type of MVP award. Kobe deserves an MVP, Chris Paul deserves MVP, Lebron doesn't.

LEBRON TRAVELS WAY TOO MUCH. Of course the refs don't care and neither does the NBA because its the golden child. What a ****ing disgrace.

mr. wiz...you are, with my most amicable intentions, out of your freakin tree. lebron is over-rated, but is one of the top 3 players?? without lebron the cavs are a 20 win team at best...how much more valuable can a player be? the reason that the cavs got 20 more fouls is because the bullets are playing out of control and were losing horribly. that leads to more foul calls. it's not biased, your team is playing bush league.

The wizards defensive game plan is to foul anytime in the paint. Lebron loves the paint like he has stock in Sherwin Williams.

The Wiz: Wait, why do we have so many fouls called on us?!

Must be a conspiracy, and not the product of saying your going to foul and then doing it.

LeBron gets his share of calls, but he also gets hit often inside and there is no whistle. Case in point: Game 1 when Blatche hit him across the face right in front of the referee. LeBron was holding his face for a few seconds, then looked at the ref who stared back at him with a blank expression.

LeBron goes inside so often (and so well) that he's always going to get his share of free throws.....but he also gets a decent share of bad no-calls as well. I've been watching him for five years now and this has always been the case.

As for the MVP, it's all about what criteria one wants to use for the award. I would give it to the league's best player, who in my opinion is LeBron. And c'mon, let's face it.....he is torching your team right now.

All that crying and stuff is embarrassing, Wiz fan. More a product of your coming to the realization that you'll never beat the Cavs, ever. You'll never beat LeBron, and whining about it only makes you look bush league.

Welcome to reality... you're the Cavs' warm-up scrimmage before they play real NBA teams like Detroit and Boston. Congrats.

Dirty, DIRTY play by the Wizzards! Hand out some tougher - maybe into next season - suspensions!
Cavs do well when they move ball around.
Puzzled by Lebrons free throws. Even 80% would give these close games a little more comfort zone!
