    I think that Ben's demise was not from lack of talent, but rather because of system. He was clearly horrible in Washington, was great in Detroit, and then became worse again. He seems like a system player. I think he will be fine in Cleveland, but they need what all playoff contenders need, shooters. Shooters are at a premium in the playoffs because scoring goes way down. So you need guys who can fill the bucket. Defense can lead to buckets. So that helps, but you need scorers in the playoffs in my opinion. All 5 players must be able to score to make double teams pay. If even one player cannot score, it is a problem.

    So far the Cavs are 1-2 with the new team. I give it 3 more games. If they cant win 2 of the next 3 I call the trade a bust. Not a good time to be a Cavs fan. IMO I see LeBron on a new team in the next few years.

    And said team would have to ship out or trade their best players to afford/get him and he'll be in exactly the same position he's in now. Trouble with these "superstars" they complain that the rest of the teams **** and its their own fault by taking up half (exageration)the salary cap.:rolleyes:

    Looks like the big bad Pistons don't match up at all with the new look Cleveland LeBron's.

    Wallace looks pretty good blocking and causing distorted shots. Maybe the James gang are pretty good now?

    Playoff ready?

    Boston Clobbered my Rockets, and made it look easy. Boston has a great Defense. They switch on screens and still match up well.

    Boston might just be the best team in the league. The only thing i'm worried about is that they've been so intense throughout the entire course of the season that they may be drained come playoff time.
