I knew the Cavs wouldn't sweep. Chicago is a bad match up because they're a small, athletic team. Shaq wasn't brought in to help out on small, athletic teams. Brown should start either Hickson or Varejao at the center position.

I also have no idea why the Cavs got Jamison. Relegating him to purely a jump shooter is an awful offensive plan. They should post him way more.

I thought the Cavs were a no excuse team...

If they want to bash the refs, do it in front of the press and take the fine. What is Stu Jackson possibly going to do for them anyway? Suspend Derrick Rose?

I don't follow that postgame stuff.

Free throw shooting is a real problem with this team. Anyone that thinks otherwise is in some deep denial.

Can anyone honestly say that the Cavs played as hard as the Bulls tonight?

That's because Mr. Williams has trouble fighting through a screen to save his life.
It's not even that. There were plays where Rose just breezed past Mo without any other player from either team being involved in any way. Mo hardly moved after him.

I was left wondering if Mo is either injured and hiding it or he's in fact 40 years old...

Can we please, PLEASE put Mo on Hinrich, Moon on Deng, and LeBron on Rose...then take out Mo for Delonte when Hinrich catches fire.

At this point of the season, I wouldn't mind Parker not playing...at all....again. Moon and Delonte can take a lot of those minutes, and the 10 or so leftover goes to Gibson....he can knock down open threes. Plus he is clutch.

I just want to see him try to get in between 1 screen, just 1. Nevertheless, while this makes me upset with Mo, it really makes me realize how awesome Andy is with his help defense and hustle.

I haven't heard any of the Cavs bashing the refs. Talking to Stu Jackson in private about obviously blown calls is the proper way to do it. During the season, most teams will submit "grievances" about bad calls in writing. It's just a way to be heard and hopefully create a list of talking points to educate the refs on calls that were missed. Theoretically, the same bad call won't be made in the future. Not saying it actually works, but it is a process. I would be pissed if our guys went up in the post-game presser and ripped the refs. I can switch allegiances to Orlando if that's what I want from my team.

So much for resiliency of a champion. Cavs coming apart at the seams- Shaq wont talk to media, Lebron calling out Shaq, Cavs officials complaining to refs in private?

WTF??

"We didn't come into the game with a sense of urgency, didn't have a lot of energy," James said. "That's not our (style)."

Link? please.....is that twitter or something?
Brian Windhorst's twitter, yes.

Complete LBJ quote, not huge deal: "I'm not concerned. We know we need him to pick up his play and he knows that also."
Actually doesnt sound awful. Original post by Brian was:

LeBron said the Cavs should looking at playing more small in Gm 4. Also that Shaq needs to "pick up his play."
Not sure what this means but

ust for fun, Joakim Noah threw in one more "Cleveland sucks."
