The Cavs are NOT a good team at all.

I used to just think they were a top team this season out of blind faith, like wow they have Lebron and now Mo Williams. But as I actually watched them for the first time this season, their team really sucks.

When Lebron's lanes are shut down by the defense and he forces off tough shots, he isn't a huge threat anymore. Delonte West hit some 3's, and Mo Williams despite bricking a lot of shots, hit only a few. Lebron got a lot of assists, but Cleveland's big men suck to be nice.

And something about ilgouskas (or whatevers), if you thought ODOM looked like he was confused on the floor, you should see this guy, he looks like he has no idea what is going on, and when there was a loose ball on the floor right next to him, instead of trying to jump for it, he just walks to the other end giving the ball up, PATHETIC.

I've never watched the Cav's play against us, but how is it that they do well against us?

really? when did you start following the lakers?



anyways, they play well against us because they have a solid defensive identity...they rebound well and they have lebron....those 3 components are tough for ANY team to deal with

that's why

c'mon. reaally. you've never seen them play the lakers, AND the first time you've watched them was just recently. do you really have room to argue?

teams don't have 26-5 records for no reason... you can't judge the merit of a team off of one game. If you did the same for the Lakers, you have about 10 games you could make the same argument for.

Wow, you watched one of their losses and you're now an expert?

They're a top 5 team in the league easily. Mike Brown is probably COY. The guy preaches defense, and they play it damn well. On offense, the Cavs finally have a second scorer to help relieve Lebron in MO Williams who can put up 20 a night. They're definitely a contender.
Gooden>> Lamar Odom. Mo Williams>> Ray Allen>> Gasol. Nene= Gasol.

In our recent matchups we didn't have anyone who could stop the freethrow fest awarded LJ.

The Cavs are one of those teams that rely heavily on home games. They are 16-0 at home and 10-5 on the road. A don't see them winning many road games against WCF powerhorses in the future...

Big Z moves that way because he's old and slow, not because he's lazy or confused.

Aren't they 0-5 against Eastern teams .500 and over on the road?

I know they should not be judged by one loss, I Just did not see many things going for them besides Lebron

I remember when I saw LeBron get that technical for Wade blocking his shot, he completely blew the whole Heat players and made an easy layup, never make LeBron mad.

1 loss was at New Orleans

and another 2 were at Miami and Atlanta, both of which the Cavs had previously beaten.

And let's see... who have they played at home during this streak?

Philadelphia (12-18)
Washington (6-24)
Charlotte (11-21)
Chicago (14-18)
Indiana (10-21) - played twice
Milwaukee (15-18)
Denver (21-12)
Utah (19-14)
Atlanta (21-10)
Oklahoma City (4-29)
Golden State (10-24)
New York (12-18)
Toronto (12-20)
Philadelphia (12-18)
Houston (21-12)
Washington (6-24)
Miami (17-13)

So they've beaten 4 teams with winning records. The combined win/loss total of all the teams they've beaten? 223 wins, 314 losses.

Quite a different picture when you take in all of it.

wouldnt go as far as calling it "assassinated" but it was pretty good.

I see faith in your eyes
never you hear the discouraging lies
broken is the promise, betrayal
the healing hand held back by deepened nail
follow the god that failed
