Agree with Mike, Raptorman and SWaN.

I'd like to see Kapono getting some more shots, and also run some plays for him ( not only a screen bad placed).

I like Delfino, but if I have to choose one of them, then I'd always choose Kapono. His defence isn't that bad and he can play the SG, what makes the team bigger. JMO.

exactly - players like Bargnani and kapono have a great influence on the play even when they're not doing anything. Kapono pretty much takes a player off the floor when he's in - whoever is guarding him will not step more than a couple of feet away. And bargnani, just watch how he draws the big man away - it was funny seeing kaman trying to close on him, very reluctantly to leave the basket.

I'd try and package him to Sacramento for Artest.

Seriously, we're gonna play Cleveland in the first round. Might as well go out and get someone who can mix it up against Lebron. Otherwise, we're gonna be done in 6 (and I'm being generous here)

He's not a volume guy, and never has been.

He is weak on defense. Pat Riley had some pretty damn strong defenders to put on the floor along with him. Defenders with a great deal of experience. We have a little ways to go before we can manage to not get hurt too much by those kinds of weaknesses.

I have no problem with his current role on the team, with the emphasis on current. I think once again people have judged his effectiveness prematurely and will stick with the negative opinion no matter what transpires with regard to his developing role.

Still - considering how many weapons we possess from long-distance, I'd have no problem with a trade.

actually we're going to play orlando in the first round, probably with home court advantage too. We have 0 chance of making the finals, with or without a lebron stopper And really, is there such a thing in the nba now?. Lebron is unstoppable without good team defense, nobody can do it, not bowen and not artest.

The only team that can upset boston or detriot besides one of them taking out the other? Cleveland baby!! Like milk just said the man you guys love to hate is UNGUARDABLE, and if the shooters on that team get hot at the right time, they could beat boston or detriot, its up to those shooters tho, LeBron when all is said and done will be not one of the 50 greatest ever, he will be one of the top 5 ever.

Oh boy we need to bookmark this post.

As Claudius alluded to the other day, LeBron can't do it himself anymore. Sure he'll win his fair share of games himself, but they aren't getting any younger and are missing a few crucial pieces to take them over the top. LeBron and the Cavs might make it interesting, but no way they can take either Detroit or Boston this season. Just not enough depth where both those teams are exceptionally strong in this season. JMO

Teams, that kick Clevelands "One man show" ass. Not only the East.

Phoenix
Boston
Lakers
Detroit
San Antonio
Dallas
New Orleans
Utah
Denver
And probably Orlando, Golden State and Portland

That means they are not even a top 10 team.

but the reverse is also true. Lebron is playing better this year (unfortunately) - I think Cleveland can beat any team now. It's probably impossible for them to win it all, because after all, if you're .500 against the top 10, you have less than 10% statistical odds to win the title, but no team is safe when playing them (when healthy).

Im not saying its gonna happen, but i am saying if Cav's shooters get hot at the right time, they could knock off boston or detriot... last year they probably werent considered a top team either, yet made the finals, i said in another post it sounds crazy but as good as LeBron is, he may also be the most improved player in the league this year, the kid is downright scary to the point i cant remember some1 his age being. I dont think they could run the table but i think being hot at the right time, yes they could beat boston or detriot.
