    George Hill fucking sucks. I don't know how he's on the court/how he was given an iso possession with 35 seconds left.

    Oh wait, I do. It's because Ty Lue has no idea what the hell he's doing.

    buckeyesin07 Veni. Vidi. Vici.

    Well, he's only got 15 pts on 16 shots (5-16 from the field), after a no-show effort in Game 1, so...

    Brad Stevens picks up any 6 foot player and turns them into an All-Star. He has Rozier ballin' out. Heck, Larkin is playing well and he's a G-League scrub.

    Cavs can't manage to develop any damn guard. It's all LeBron.

    Seriously, what the hell guys SHOULD be in at crunch time besides LBJ? Love. JR probably. And...??? Korver I guess? Defensive liability.

    Yeah, at this point you look up and down the roster and you just have to accept this team ain't good.

    No ball-handlers, no rim-protectors or size, and historically streaky/journeymen players. They're so limited in what they can do.

    Honestly it depends on the matchup and whether we need offense or defense. In general, though, I would just surround LeBron with four shooters (making sure one is a rebounder). Right now it looks like the best options are JR, Korver, Love (or Nance if Love is hurt), and I guess Hill(??). Every possession needs to start with LeBron at the top of the key and the four shooters spread around the floor. LeBron can drive, drive and kick, or call for a screen.

    That strategy should cut through most of the East without resistance. It would certainly work against Indiana and Toronto.

    My concern is health... LeBron's back.. plus he's getting beat to death with no help from refs; Korver's foot; now Love's hand.. which does not look good; Hood's back; Green's brain..

    and would someone remind Clarkson and JR.. that ever since you first touch a basketball and can shoot.. follow your shot

    The calmness LeBron brings in playoff road games is insane. Stone cold.

    Not sure how the game ends up but he has the team looking more composed here than at home.

    Indiana basketball fans are the whiniest group I’ve ever seen. Acting like every call is an assault on their mother or something

    57-40 at HT then 18 points in 16 minutes...this team ain’t ready. LBJ can’t do it all himself, and Love has disappeared offensively
