Six IMO no one on the Cavs roster can hold Pippen and Grant's jocks.

Pippen is a top 50 player all time and Grant averaged 13 and 12 for the season.

Ask this, if you replace Jamison with Grant and Mo Williams with Pippen do they beat Boston?

No doubt.

You know. That whole watching Sponge Bob thing should have shown us the team was too young and not ready to dominate. They were good but mentally too young. This year I think the only thing they should watch are 80's action films or similar films. The hell with those feel good stories also. Like Rocky 1 where the hero loses. What the hell was that.

Movie choices for the team this season.

If they are going to watch a cartoon it needs to be something where somebody gets the crap kicked out of them...alot

Any more suggestions let me hear them but these boys need to become men and start watching man movies. Seriously. NO MORE SPONGE BOBS. If you go to the club it is time to start acting like men.

A-team reruns, the unit.
Give me some more man shows the Our players should have on in the locker room this year.

I love Shannon but SPonge Bob what the hell is that.

that is barely above my little pony. Go CANES.

If I had a son and he put on SPonge Bob I would punch him in the face. Even if he was only 3 and wore glasses.

At least GI Joe the greatest cartoon of all time if you are going to watch a cartoon. But then again with Jacory's interceptions last year I don't want him to watch anything where everybody had bad aim. He may think it is acceptable.

HillViewCane

Actually better yet this is an idea from watching a little news segment on Ray Lewis before. Canes inspired so it has to work.

What they should watch is video of pack hunting animals destroying their prey.

Hyenas,Ants, Bees, homeless people, Sharks, tigers, wolves not Lions cause they are chicks and not crocs and gaytors because they suck donkey nuts but I would want to see weaker animals being brought down. And shared by the pack or other random deadly creatures.

Today I am a black mamba or Ebola

or

"Sorry little gazelle but you're too slow"

I mean don't they always say Pryor runs like a Gazelle? How obvious could it be.

National Geographic, Animal planet videos of stronger animals showing what survival of the fittest really means.

After they win they can watch spongebob to realize they are human. But before a victory I am requesting a Sponge Bob BAN. A SPONGE IS THE EPITOME OF SOFT. How did we miss that.

How in the heck does Mike Garrett still have a job?

Maybe he should give Calicheaty a call to come in and clean up that basketball program

I'm with Six on this one... And anybody who thinks that D. Wade shouldn't have been the MVP in 2009 is sick... If Lebron and Wade's numbers were reversed, I'm sure there would've been some justification as to why Lebron STILL deserves it over Wade... The MVP award has become a marketing tool for the NBA and the only MVP Award that matters is the Finals MVP!!

FG % 3P% FT% Reb Ast .491 .317 .765 5.0 7.5
.489 .344 .780 7.6 7.2

Stl Blk Pts
2.2 1.3 30.2
1.7 1.1 28.4

Lets remember that one of these guys plays a closer to the basket, is about 4 inches taller, 50 pounds heavier, and is in a league of "his own" supposedly...
During 2009, Wade became the first player in NBA history to accumulate at least 2,000 points, 500 assists, 100 steals, and 100 blocks in a season and is the first player of 6 ft. 4 in. or shorter to register at least 100 blocks in a season. Wade also became just the fifth player in NBA History to reach 2,000 points, 500 assists, and 150 steals in a season.

SOUP

I think people are just infatuated with how LeBron looks, and that's easy to see. It's like seeing some flashy sports car - that takes a complete crap though when trying to drive through mud

On a side note maybe they should watch female animals hunt also...it will prepare them for groupies.

That's OBVIOUS: He knows things that nobody should know, like where ALL of the skeletons (and gold) are buried.

HillViewCane

If you watched the last Olympics you would know that Wade and Lebron together is just pure awesome. Wade plays the scoring agressor. Lebron acts like a better rebounding version of magic who blocks shots. he doe everything else. and wade handled the bulk scoring. lebron still got his points but it was a thing of beauty to watch.

LMAO!

If you watched the last olympics you would know that Wade and LEbron playing together is pure awesome.

Wade takes the roll of the Alpha scorer and Lebron handles everyting else. Flow if the game, rebounding, block shots assist. It really was a thing of beauty to watch. Don't forget Magic was never the high scorer on his team until the end of his career and it did nothing to destory his legacy.

people who say this will destroy James's brand have short memories and don't remember magic and bird played with at least 2 other top 50 of all time greatest players. So did russell and pretty much everybody else of note.

Predictions from the Oklahoma City paper OU beatwriter:

Oct. 3 at Miami

Sooners roll in their toughest test yet, as Sam Bradford breaks an NCAA record with 25 consecutive completions, 14 of which are caught by possession wideout Cameron Kenney, who emerges as perfect complement to playmakers Jermaine Gresham and Ryan Broyles.

Miami proves better than its record indicates, as the Hurricanes rally to make a bowl despite starting the season 0-4.

I was at the last 2 Sox v Rays games and hands down the worse fans in baseball are the local RedSox fans

I had a nice conversation going with some fans that were down from Boston for a little vacation and they were very nice. Of course they I asked why I was dressed in `Cane gear so I had to let them know what the priority in sports is with me

But these local fake accent Sox fans really blow chunks

Fair enough but he's not a Boss yet.

Bosses put their team on their backs when the marbles are at stake, like Jordan, magic, Kobe, Bird, Hakeem, Clyde even Isiah and the many others who've done it less consistently.

To me he's in the same class as Tracy McGrady. Lebron hasn't done anything T-Mac didn't do before his injury. He's just had a ton more hype.

Six, that's good and all, but coaching counts for something also, there's NO way they could've won all those championships with Doug Collins. Same thing goes for the Heat's championship year, there's NO way they win with SVG.

Posted by: CaneRock | July 07, 2010 at 04:50 PM

I'll give you that Rock but Lebron's not a Boss, not a motivator, not a terminator, at least not yet.

And by flirting with Miami he's basically admitting that he, of all the talent in the world, can't do it the way Jordan did it.

So he'll always be levels below Jordan for that reason alone.

Pete was a machine and an artist. He lived and breathed basketball thanks to his daddy. Talk about having something "in the blood."

And how fitting was it that he collapsed and died on a basketball court after he'd stopped playing for several years.

True Peebs but Lebron still got outclassed by Rajon Rondo in clutch time. Name one player who ever outclassed Jordan on the court??

And that Boston team that the Bulls beat was one of the greatest frontlines ever. This year's Boston team couldn't compare to that one as far as front lines are concerned.

Lebron just needs to get his head out of the clouds and sit down with the Master, Jordan, and ask him what he should do and most importantly, how he did what he did.

To me, Clevelands, one maybe two players away from having the firepower to win a ship.

But that doesn't mean they have the will.

HILLVIEW IS IN DA BUILDIN!!!!

Classic bro. LOL.

Six

1990-1991 season, Grant averaged 12 ppg and 8 total rebounds per game

2009-2010 season, Jamison averaged 15 ppg and 7 total rebounds per game

Both play the same position - so if you're going to switch players from different teams, it's only fair to at least switch players from the same position

Pippen was what, a Small Forward for the Bulls, right? Doesn't LeBron play Small Forward primarily for the Cavs? So, basically to compare players, you'd take LeBron over Pippen, right?

Mo Williams is primarily the Point Guard, right? So how much worse is he than the 1990-1991 BJ Armstrong, John Paxson or Craig Hodges

Let's see, well:

2009-2010
Mo Williams - .429 3Pt% (159 of 387), .442 FG% (378 of 855), .894 FT% (177 of 198), 206 Total Rebounds, 368 Assists, 70 Steals, 1,092 Points

1990-1991
BJ Armstrong - .500 3Pt% (15 of 30), .481 FG% (304 of 632), .874 FT% (97 of 111), 149 Total Rebounds, 301 Assists, 70 Steals, 720 Points

John Paxson - .438 3Pt% (42 of 96), .548 FG% (317 of 578), .829 FT% (34 of 41), 91 Total Rebounds, 297 Assists, 62 Steals, 710 Points

Mo Williams actually has better numbers than both BJ and Paxson - if you're looking at just the percentage points, you then also have to take a look at the difference in how many chances taken as well

All in all, it's a wash .. remember, I'm talking about the 1990-1991 Bulls, #23s first championship

Also, Phil Jackson was only in his 2nd of year of coaching the Bulls, after being Doug Collin's assistant coach in 1987, then getting the head gig in 1989

As I stated, you look at #23s team he won the NBA Championship with in 1990-1991 and also, just for sh*ts and giggles, who they beat in the Finals

How much better was it really than what LeBron had around him this past year?

Seriously take a look at who were on both teams, at what stage in their careers, how much they contributed in PPG, Assists, 3s, etc. It's not really that different at all

In what way was Bill Cartwright that much better than an older Shaq? Ya, I remember Shaq with the Magic - he was a freak, so as he gets older, of course the disappointment in what we're used to seeing in him dominating everyone is going to diminish a hell of a lot quicker/harder. Pippen in 1990-1991 didn't have outstanding stats, don't think about Pippen after that - think about what we're talking about, Pippen in 1990-1991

1990-1991 season for the Bulls, compared to the 2009-2010 season for the Cavs

People are so enamored with LeBron, just b/c of his physical stature. Ya, the guy can ball, no doubt about it. You can throw as many stats out there you want about how he's All-NBA this or All-First Team That ... where is he during the post-season and why hasn't he delivered - even with the excuse of who is exactly around him?

I see no one has really stepped up to try and compare why D-Wade won with the team he had around him, compared to LeBron and what he had around him this past year


One Category - Kobe, D-Wade

Another Category - LeBron, Nowitzki, Nash

Winners and wanna-bes

People can call him "King" James all they want, but it certainly doesn't fit at all

Esteban

i think Hillview's point shouldn't be overlooked. These guys have played together already. They played in the 2004 Olympics and were embarrassed to lose. They came back and played better as a team and won the Gold. That's not something that should be discounted. And one guy who called the local radio station made a comparison that I thought was on the money. Said its like when A-Rod joined the Yankees. He was considered the best player in the league, but he gets to them Yanks and its still Jeter's team but its also a championship team. He says Lebron will be the A Rod to Wade's Jeter and the Heat will be winning titles. I pretty much agree 100% with that. Wade's the man. Even without Lebron i think a title is on the Horizon.
