He great at drawing charges when he isn't late on his defensive rotations.If he stays consistent on the defensive end,he is an ever better pick up.

Love to see Powe destroy the "Matador Defender" Rashoids Lewis.

Losing a 'major' contributor but replacing him with an even better one doesn't involve any "buts". Kinda like, "Oh look booho we lost Nene but hey we just signed Dwight Howard!!!"
you must've not seen him in the NBA Finals vs. the Lakers a couple of years back He clearly showed us that he can step up when the bright lights are on. Now, i realize that he has a bad knee, and he'll be out until Jan-Feb, but to get a guy like that for the league minimum, that's clearly a steal.

and FYI you dont have to be a star in order to be a steal.

And oh yeah, @ Laker Fan in this thread.

Default Re: Cavs likely signing Leon Powe

I love all the Laker fans scared sh*tless coming in this thread trying to downplay this signing.

Powe, when given starter minutes has always been an incredible contributor. He's the proto-typical garbage guy. Give him 20 minutes, he'll score/rebound accordingly, give him 40 minutes, he'll do the same.

Powe is averaging [ppg/rpg] in 36 minutes the past three seasons:

06-07: 13.2/10.7
07-08: 19.7/10.1
08-09: 15.8/10.1

Leon Powe is plenty capable of averaging 20/10. Laker fans obviously forgot how bad he f*cked you in the a*s in the Finals. What makes him any different now?*

*= granted he comes back 100%

I'm actually scared now. Powe is capable of coming back to Boston and sh*tting on us.

It sucks that the Celtics couldn't keep this guy, but that was the circumstance.

Leon Powe is very talented; a bit more tha just a garbage man. With starter's minutes he could approach 20/10.

I do like this signing for the Cavs. Powe is a good bench player and if healthly can produce good things. Big If though.

Rasholds Lewis


The Cavs still have no one to guard Shard unless they put Lebron on him.

Good sign by the Cavs pending Powe is healthy.

But here we go again with PB now saying that the Cavs are better then the Lakers? LOL WTF?

You guys still have LeBron...and that's about it. Good luck getting out of the East is all I have to say.

I guess this means Lebron is a 3 for life. I really think the Cavs are better off with him at the 4.
