As far as I'm concerned, SA is still the team to beat in the West, until someone proves otherwise, and their team is better than last year, having picked up Damon Stoudamire along the way to backup Parker.

I never said they were runaway #1, just #1 right now. SA is gellin' doing their thing, Lakers are 9-1 in the last 10 and Bynum isn't even playing.

If anything Wallace's numbers have IMPROVED since he left the Bulls, he's shooting 15% higher from the field, his FT% is 12% higher, and he's scoring 3ppg more with the Cavs than with the Bulls while getting .5 of a minute less in Cleveland.

He's in there to help on defense and bring energy...something Gooden didn't provide. He's not in there to provide offense.

I'm liking the trade so far for two reasons:

#1. We got rid of Larry Hughes
Never was a fan of his, and he was a major mismatch. Would much rather have Wally or Devin or Sasha out there in his place.

#2. The Cavs are very deep now
If you look at the Cavs roster you can go 11 deep with quality players, and we have added some experience.

Cavs bench:

Varejao
Smith
Pavlovic
Wally
Gibson

11th man:
Damon Jones

That's solid at every position, with a great shooter in Damon as an added bonus. That kind of depth could really make a difference in the playoffs, and while the likely matchup with the Celtics will be tough, it is possible. Cavs are better in the playoffs than they are in the regular season, and the most clutch team in the league this year.
