Default Re: How long till Lebron gets a decent supporting cast?

How is his cast overrated when there's ignorant people like you who jump on them EVERY chance they get? They play top-notch defense, they're top-notch rebounders, and capable finishers around the rim. All they're missing is a #2 guy on offense, that's it. Other players in the league would love to have a cast that plays as hard as they do on both ends of the court.

Agreed.

I predict LeBron will get a decent supporting cast the season before he becomes a FA (Cavs obviously don't want to give him up and will probably do whatever it takes) or LeBron is tired of carrying his team and right when he turns into a FA signs to a diff team.

I agree with most of your points but that one is just plain wrong. If there is a worse team at finishing around the rim I have never seen them. Ever seen Ben Wallace or Anderson Varejao play ? Or Eric Snow or David Wesley as Cavaliers ?

Varejao isn't a bad finisher. Wallace is, ill give you that. You also have big Z and joe smith down there who can finish. Lebron gets them the ball in the paint and they are capable of finishing the play a majority of the time, varejao has really improved this year. Its not like he has kwame brown in the paint.

I hate when people dont know what they're talking about because lebron has one of the most underrated supporting classes in the league. Z almost got a double-double in the first half, 12 pts-9rebs. Wally got 10 in the 1st half and boobie had 6. To me that sounds like a good supporting cast to me

You should check your facts. Varejeo's shooting numbers are the last few years, and this year since the allstar break they've been pretty horrible, with him making less than 42% of his shots in spite of taking almost exclusively layups and short hooks.

your looking at all the weaknesses to the team. Ben Wallace and Anderson Varejao arent on the team for offense. Wallace is here for defense and rebounding, while varejao is on the team for the same reasons, he tends to THINK he's good as a post up guy which isnt true.

He should stay with the East. He can easily get to playoffs there. :)

Bascially the manager built the team for a second round not for a championship team..

Hopefully Lebron goes to the Knicks

he's 56% on assisted field goals though, which was my point

he's a capable finisher when around the rim, and that compliments lebron's game perfectly
