Default Who Do You Blame?

In the main forum there's all these people throwing accusations and blame at LeBron, Mike Brown, Larry Hughes, Danny Ferry, Big Z, the city of Cleveland, Tim Couch, Drew Carey and Bone Thugs N Harmony. So my question is who do you blame for the Cavs lack of efficiency?

Personally I blame Mike Brown. The guy seems like he has no control whatsoever over the team. I mean i've seen Damon Jones call more plays lately from the bench than Mike Brown. Honestly i really like the roster that Cleveland has, and before we make any changes i want to see what this team can do with a proven coach running the show.

What the Cavaliers need is a coach who will run the team instead of playing half court and focusing more on defense.

I think somebody like Rick Adelman would be a great coach for this team.

Larry Hughes played well in his first 10 games at point, but he's back to his old ways of stinking up the court. He obviously isn't the answer, and he's obviously still a waste of money.

Ferry's a horrible GM for picking up a guy who never played an 82 game season in his career in the first place. Not to mention locking Z, Hughes, Marshall, D. Jones, E. Snow, etc. into long term contracts when they're all well over 30.

Damon Jones the answer at PG? Who didn't see that one blowing up in our faces? When has he done anything on any of the other teams he played for?

In answer to your question, Danny Ferry is the biggest problem. He's the one who assembled this team, AND the head coach. But the team could play better with a real coach, that's for damn sure.

The more I think about it, the more I think that this poorly assembled team is hurting us no only with the personnel we have on the floor, but also in keeping us from signing new players.

You would think having Lebron James on the roster would make people want to play here, but the fact is that Danny Ferry has assembled such a team of misfits, that nobody in their right mind considers us a contender, so they won't play here.

Jalen Rose, Chris Webber, and Eddie Jones, all got bought out this year and signed contracts with teams they considered contenders for a low, to league minimum contract.

None of those players made any mention of wanting to play for the Cavs.

Kevin Willis came out of retirement to try to catch on with a contender. Ended up in Dallas.

Why? Because we're not considered contenders. Ferry has locked up all our money to give free agents what they want, and since we're not considered contenders, we don't qualify to draw some of these veterans willing to play for the league minimum.
