Default 8 Years Later and Larry Hughes jumpshot has not gotten any better

I lost count of the number of misses hughes had last night when given the opportunity to shoot a open jumpshot. I know he had that problem 8 years ago when he was a 76er in 1999 but his outside shooting has not improved and i think he is really hurting the cavs chances of beating the pistons. If he is going to continue to have miss after miss then it's time for him to sit on the bench. He did not play like a starting point guard at all last night and he has to improve if the Cavs have any kind of chance of advancing to the Finals.

Larry Hughes is the biggest douche on the Cavaliers lineup the guy is a great athlete and a terrible shooter.

If Steve Nash is a Free Agent in 2009, I would not mind signing Steve Nash on our team rather than Hughes who is probably has one of the worsts shot selection in the NBA.

Slow down there big fella...u'd rather have the best pg in the game, 2-time MVP than a 2nd rate 2-guard.

GTFOH!

When Garnett is a free agent, I'd rather sign him than Jamaal Crawford.

I mean we sign/ offer first a contract with Steve Nash in 2009 and try to deal Hughes with another team that will take his huge contract.

I would take larry still. He's a very good defender.

He can still score anyways.

Didn't Pleezebelieve claim that Lebron/Hughes was the best duo since Jordan/Pippen or something of that nature?

Hughes is just a very bad fit for Lebron. That doesn't make him a bad player, though, he could still be a valuable piece in a well-constructed puzzle.

The Cavs were so stupid a few years back, losing Boozer and then rushing to sign guys like Gooden, Hughes and Z.

I just cant stop thinking about how good LBJ, Carlos and a bunch of roll players would be.

Put him on a team where the top scorer isn't a slasher. You'd be surprised.

Except for the fact Boozer ditch behind the Cavs back, so we can't blame the Cavs organization for that. But yes Boozer and Bron could have been very potent. The could have also concentrated on finding a better PG instead of trying to replace Boozer. But the Cavs will do fine, just not this year.

the Cavs have to learn how to handle their business

Ari Gold got Vinnie Chase back

incredible mismanangement to let a beast like Carlos go

horrible

Yes we can, the organization was trying to bend the rules by releasing him and having a verbal commitment to re-sign. They were both stupid and petty in that situation.
