I Just Don’t Think the Cavs are That Good

May 1, 2008

It’s not Lebron.  He is arguably the best player in the game and certainly in the top 5.  Its the team as a whole that just seems so underwhelming.  Lets look at their starting five

1. D. West – a pretty good PG with average scoring ability.  He’s a good role player but should be the 4th option at best on a championship squad.

2. W. Szczerbiak – not much of a player anymore.  in a close out game at home, he got 17 minutes despite the fact that he had only 1 foul.

3. Z. Ilgauskus – the 2nd best player on the Cavs which says it all.  Hes a good center with nice offensive skills but he will never be the 2nd best player on a championship team

4. Lebron – no words.  amazing player.  arguably still insecure about taking the game winner

5. Ben Wallace – is he really still in the league?  he hasnt been relevant since he went to Chicago.  his offensive liabilities were acceptable when he pulled in 10+ boards a game and had 2+ blocks.  the last time that happened, Lebron was at the jr prom.

So those are your cavs.  No wonder the Wizards wanted to play them.  Outside of Lebron, does anyone scare you?  Who is your x factor player?  who is your second star that steps up when lebron is off?

I think the Cavs win their series against the Wizards because Lebron is good enough to beat them.  The 2nd round though – no chance.  I dont have the bracket in front of me but I take the celtics, pistons or magic against the cavs any day of the week.

Other point
1. RIP Mike Dantoni as coach of the suns.  Classy coach that should be hired ASAP by the bulls (i dont think he is right for the knicks).  I would LOVE to see Shaq take this off season seriously and come into next season in the best shape of his life.  Work with those Sun’s trainers and step it up.  Even at 36+ he makes a difference.

2. RIP Avery Johnson.  I never drank the Avery kool-aide and I think he stopped drinking his own kool-aide as well.  When your players hold a practice without you, the writing is on the wall that they dont listen to you anymore.

    cavs are not that good, but i think their line-up got better after the trading for new players, except for ben wallace.. that guy is non-existent in most games..
