Default Stephen Jackson: (Now that Kyrie is Gone) Eastern Teams ain't Scared of Cavs No More.

Basically suggested on First Things First today that the fear that Cleveland once instilled in Eastern competition like Toronto and Boston is gone now that they can't get much better with their current group.

Do you agree with his assessment, or is it too premature to judge the situation of a team that's injury-depleted atm and in the process of jelling and finding its groove?

I would still be intimidated to face Lebron if I'm a team in the EAST.

Especially if Boston continues to struggle with injuries.

Raptors aren't proven enough to be confident to get by Lebron.

Well they have no viable second option at the moment.

When Love returns we'll probably see some kind of resurgence, at least in numbers.

Why do people listen to this illiterate pos? He got his ass handed to him by a fan, this fake tough guy shouldn't be on tv, he never says anything respectable.

Boston is done. Theis, Hayward and now possibly Marcus smart out for the year. Kyrie banged up knee. The team might just call it quits till next season.

Cavs have no closer now and no 2nd guy to go off for 30-40 pts, their defense is also ass so you know you can trade buckets with Lebron all game and he's too old so he'll be gassed in the 2nd half.

Everyone now: the Cavs are shit, nobody is scared of them anymore, they are no longer the favorites
Everyone once we sweep the East again: the East is shit, cakewalk!

I saw the segment and he didn't mention kyrie nearly as much. He simply stated the older roster had more experience and were built for the playoffs whereas the new younger guys don't have the collective experience to perform high in the playoffs.

If by everyone you mean "all the trolls", sure. A team with LeBron and a bunch of morons, which kind of constitutes his current team, is still scary to me.

Stephen Jackson's opinion is meaningless. Only hear from him because anybody can share an opinion nowadays.

You might be living in a fantasy land, young one. Cavs are definitely worse this year then they were years past.
