LeBron Stalls Cavs Offense

» May 23, 2008 8:45 AM | By Brandon Hoffman

From Brian Windhorst via Cavalier Attitude:

“It’s a bit of a chicken and egg theory in my opinion. The offense often stalls because LeBron stalls it. He does this because he doesn’t trust his teammates or the system. But he doesn’t trust them because they don’t work. Seeing how many open shots Wally Szczerbiak missed would affect anyone. Wally has been an excellent shooter in his career and he was having a very good season in Seattle, yet he gets open shots in Cleveland that he misses. Is that Danny Ferry’s fault? Is it LeBron’s? Is it Mike Brown’s? Ultimately you have to acquire people who will mesh well with LeBron and it hasn’t happened offensively yet.” [Read]

    good point, but I still have to draw the line. FIRE MIKE BROWN!! Keep Ferry…

    Go after Avery Johnson.
    Try to get something with all those expiring contracts.

    BAM! Back in the title hunt…

  2. Hoffman Says:

    Avery Johnson would be a step down from Brown.

    Going from Mike Brown to Avery Johnson would be like going from Beyonce to Lauren London. Lauren’s got her occasional flashes, but she’ll always be an amateur compared to Beyonce.

    Mike Brown never lost a playoff series to a team he should have beat, he’s never blown a 2-0 series lead, and he’s never made adjustments for a lower-seeded team in the playoffs. Ever. And you want Avery Johnson? Do you even know what you’re talking about?

    My problem with Mike Brown is that he sat Damon Jones almost the entire second half of the season even though Damon was shooting very well from 3. And then (of course) he has an out of shape Damon playing crunch minutes in the Boston series…
