What I am most dissappointed is his poor shot selection and career shooting percentage. He also frequently fails to finish when going to the basket. Wasted oppurtunities can kill a team. His trading value can only go down with the development of Brown. Of course, Brown is not yet ready for a starting role with the team. Perhaps in mid-season we might get someone for him. (Hughes)

I still wish we could get a young backup Center like Ellson.


Yea i think hughes has a very bad shot selection...his stats are kind of deceiving because he takes too many shots...i think the cavs felt like they needed to make a big sign to please lebron so they signed hughes even though he isnt a player that complements bron as much as a pure shooter in ray allen and michael redd would...i really thought redd would sign with them and i think he would be great with lebron....but i really think hughes is overrated...hes a solid combo guard but he has been injure prone his whole career and hes not a staedy scorer...shannon brown will eventually take his spot...i think its a steal for the cavs to have gotten him

Larry Hughes Stats with Last 3 years.

03-04 WAS .397- FG % 5.3 REBS 2.4 ASSTS 1.56 STLS 18.8 PPG
04-05 WAS .430- FG% 6.3 REBS 4.7 ASSTS 2.89 STLS 22.0 PPG
05-06 CLE .409 FG% .368 4.5 REBS 3.6 ASSTS 1.47 STLS 15.5 PPG

As you can see his 04-05 stats are what the Cavs signed him on.

Michael Redd was the Cavs main aim that off season his stats during 04-05

04-05 MIL .441 FG% .355 3PT % 4.2 REBS 2.3 ASSTS .84 STLS 23.0 PPG

Redds PPG was only 1 point higher, yes he's more of a shooter, but Hughes averaged 2 more Steals a game, over 2 more assists, and over 2 rebounds more. Hughes looks 2 be more of a overall player, yes Redd can shoot the lights out, and LeBron needed someone like that. But don't say Hughes is a pushover, he was on the incline when he came to Cleveland. Would you give up on Amare Stoudamire now that he missed all of last year because of a bigger injury, knee, I don't think so.

We may have overpaid Hughes, but it's 2 early to tell. This year will be the defining year for the Cavs. I believe is Hughes was healthy all year the Cavs would have been pushing 7 games with the Heat in the ECFinals.

^^You speak the truth my friend.

I hate all these haters on Larry Hughes. Give him time. He'll be better this season and I believe that.

It's gonna be Shannon Brown. I saw him in summer league on nba broadband, and he's awesome. He can get to the hoop, he can shoot, and he is a pretty good passer as far as I know. He would be perfect at the 1. He was from the same class as LeBron, and I saw him in McDonald's All America and he didn't do too bad there, either. Tom Izzo has surely gotten him ready for the NBA game and I think he should start from day 1. All you need now is Michael Redd, and someone down low, like Brad Miller. Zydy just doesn't cut it IMO.

I don't think LeBron needs a side-kick. He is like Superman.

Really?
I was talking about LeBron in a Super-Hero sense. As in he doesn't need a side-kick just like Superman didn't have a side-kick.

i think lebron can get a ring with larry hughes but there would have to be another offensive sidekick. they play too much alike, they're not complimenting each other. The cavs need someone who can feed off of lebron's and hughes' drives. Z's not getting it done, he has talent but i really dont like his game and i dont know why anyone would. Gooden's inconsistent and not physical enough. They need to get somebody like wilcox who can play an uptempo game and finish off of passes from hughes and james.
