    on the bright side (if there is one) he treats every game like it's one.

    Shit man I saw Delly had 20 minutes I had my hopes up but man those minutes are out of wack. Shump only 10 minutes? LeBron, Kyrie and JR all over 37 minutes...

    I think he might get lost in the game, not in a bad way, but like you said. Treats it like Game 7, he wants his best.

    But we barely squeaked out a win vs the NBA's worst team...

    I would have gave LBJ these past 2 games off. maybe Love too. Kyrie 1 of these.
    imo the important games are heat and bulls and the last 2 to get ready for the playoffs.

    David says they are fatigued/tired
    wonder why ? because you are a Slave Driver.
    if he gave LBJ off these last 2 games 10 days rest. would that help us in the playoffs ?

    He should fear his team being completely gassed come the post-season...

    They get the next two days off.

    I dont see it being a problem.

    Were it me I would probably give them some rest, but he must have his reasons.

    Blatt is a good coach. They come out of time outs ...they always have a kick ass play and kill it for a few minutes. They have a day or two of practice, they always come out on fire. That says a lot to me about the coach.

    Default East Playoff Break Down

    Looking at the other teams
    Atlanta starters
    Paul Millsap,Al Horford,DeMarre Carroll,Kyle Korver,Jeff Teague,
    Chicago starters
    Joakim Noah,Pau Gasol,Mike Dunleavy,Aaron Brooks, Jimmy Butler,

    Stopping here none of the other teams should have much of a chance in 7 games.
    would you trade our big 3 for either of these 2 teams big 3 ?
    my answers is no we win that match up. that said we should beat both of these teams.

    The match-ups of our other 2 starters JR & Timo
    JR vs Jimmy Butler bulls win
    Timo vs Joakim Noah bulls win
    yet with these 2 wins.... should not be enough. not Big enough


    JR vs Kyle Korver tie at best
    Timo vs Al Horford very slight edge to Hawks. Maserati would have better numbers if he had the same minutes. imo

    Our bench is questionable. but is it bad enough to cost us a series ? how many games have they cost us so far ? my guess 4-5 tops. we are 45-19 with LBJ 2-8 without him. 28-8 since his 2 week rest/ part time GM role (cough)

    So we should win the east imo without going 7 games in all series. predicted 5.6.6. games
    now my caveat should we not win it .......we got out coached.

    I might not feel that way of we don't win the East. That being said the question would then become was it the coach or the usual suspect Lebron not listening to his coach, and forgetting about the concept of team?

    Once Lebron started to buy into Blatts system, they started destroying the rest of the league.

    I think this is the year. Maybe the next couple years. Multiple championships.

    Please explain to me this " Blatts system"
    and i'm serious
    have watched him 74 games now i can not define it other than playing his players into the ground.
    all we run is pick & roll and isolation. the most elementary sets in the league.


    Blaming LBJ really ? frankly he is the ONLY reason we are even having this conversation. we are after all 2-8 without him and with this coach. if he was a average coach would we not be 5-5 ?
    just saying

    Winning the east is what is needed this season. getting to the Finals would be invaluable as our best players not named LBJ have never been to the playoffs. a giant step for them.

    You a picking a rookie coach over a 5 times Finals player, 2 time Champ etc ?
    Listen to almost anyone who knows diddly squat about basketball they will tell you LBJ is the ultimate team player, sometimes to a fault trusting his teammates.

    I'm still waiting to hear from anyone about this "system"
    what you must be referring to is getting players (Timo,JR,Shump) coincidentally while he was "resting". or him and Griffin burning up the phone lines ?

    We have to win the east or not this year. it could happen this year but i think not. our coach needs to learn this league plus our bench is weak. these 2 problems will be hard to overcome. coaching the BIGGEST never has a coach with NO NBA experience (playing or coaching @ any level) won a title.
    This would be hard as heck with Phil or Doc etc a coach who knew what it takes to win it all.

    I question so many of Davids moves this season
    The minutes on the big 3
    Forgetting JR & Shump playing together- these guys have chemistry
    Not starting our best 5 players moving JR to the bench that is weak at scoring.

    His obsession with playing just 8 guys always. but the first 60 or so games more so. as it gets later in the season coach came do this a bit(with rested players) to get ready for the playoff run.

    Playing Love in the high post. so many sets could come from this in the half court O.
    just to name a few of the biggest ones

    We Clevelanders know how hard it is to bring home the bacon. the 1997 Tribe is the closest we've been in 50 years. for us Cav's fans the trading of Ron Harper. making a mistake will cost you the prize.

    imo asking David with NO NBA experience to pull this off is a big mistake. i hope I'm wrong but would have let him go in July or offered him a bench job if it was ok with a experienced head coach. even more so with this 20/20 hindsight.

    I know/knew Lebron pretty well from his first stint here through people close to him. I used to be somewhat connected. (not anymore) He has an ego the size of Pluto. You might have seen Windhorsts recent article. The problem is, Lebron doesn't take to coaching. He hasn't anywhere he has been. Blatt implemented a system, they had to throw it out so as not to butt heads with Akron's son. Blatt was forced to take a back seat so to speak to Lebron on calling plays. That non-offense you see out there? That's Lebrons. He calls most of those, and Blatt then relays it to the rest of the team. Lebron is obviously a mega talent, but he has had the same issue with every coach he's ever had. Hard for him to work within any system.

    When he actually listens to Blatt, you see magic out there. Lebron in the antithesis of selfless. Ok, he passes the ball. Great. Let Blatt do what he does and you might actually see some organized play, ball movement, etc. Just sayin. He's a great player, and the reason our team is now so good, but with Lebron you have to take the bad as well in order to keep him happy and get the good.

    I think Lebron wants Love out of the paint. Leaves room for him, and Irving to drive to the lane. If Blatt had more control, I have to believe we would be seeing a whole lot more of Love in the paint.

    All that being said, I still think we pull it off weak bench and all. As long as we can stay healthy and not run out of gas, I don't see anyone in the league winning a series against us. We will see.

    I can't stand it when a player whines to me or his teammates or his wife or the writers or anyone else.

    Blatt today even said he lets LeBron run the plays LeBron wants to run... Which explains why he's running the offense.

    WTF is the news here ?

    Has anyone in the media and other places EVER watched or played NBA Basketball ?

    For those who need to know this is not NFL Football where you spend most of the game asking what's the next play. in this game there is a player with the ball most of the time, called the point guard he calls the play for the other players. been like this ever since i've started watching in the 60s. LBJ is a PG on offense a SF on defense. so what we have heard the past day is NO NEWS PEOPLE.

    Now on the other side if there is one the question is. does David have control of this team or not ?
    if the answer is no he needs to go. for that reason alone.

    ego
    For the Cleveland sports fan we of the past 50 years have not enjoyed the luxury of having a Super Star. these type of players got to that level because of ??? yes it's their EGO. the last one we had was Jim Brown. how is his ego doing today ? he would say fine thank you for asking. as would MJ, Kobe, etc

    Really, because that would mean every coach Lebron has ever had, including the one who coached the championship teams in Miami, would have needed to go.

    The second someone tried to gain more control over that team, in the form of Pat Riley ...guess what, Lebron bolted. Pick your poison. Blatt is fine imho.

    Cavs GM David Griffin just showed Pat Riley this season how to build a team around LeBron and a big 3.
    Seriously, what Riley offered was so much weaker!
