    Default Some serious denial here

    Cav fans just can't seem to swallow the fact Sarunas signed with us:

    That's great! They're all hoping ESPN messed up.

    yeah, that one sure did read well to me also. Just hilarious. The prospect of going exclusively with Snow next year seems appalling to them, as well it should.

    One guy there says the breakdown is:

    $3,700,000
    $3,996,000
    $4,292,000

    Guess that leaves us $1.3M on our MLE, and our $1.6 LLE.

    If we re-sign Dale with the LLE, is there anyone out there we'd want to get with the remainder of our MLE?

    James Jones aside ...

    If Freddie Jones were to get moved, a couple of names ...

    Dice Roll - DaJuan Wagner, Kedrick Brown
    Defense - Greg Buckner, Adrian Griffin
    Shooter - Jon Barry, Kareem Rush

    Maybe a veteran like Steve Smith. Which is an idea I might like more than most ideas.

    Actually, some of these guys could've already signed somewhere, but I'm being completely lazy right now.

    Actually the breakdown (if it's not a flat $4 mil. every year) with 10% raises is thus:

    $3,636,364
    $4,000,000
    $4,363,636
    ----------
    $12,000,000

    Under the old contract you could give your own players 12% raises. Other teams that signed your teams free agents were limited to 10%. Under the new contract it's 10% and 8%.

    I'll go check to be sure.

    thats what i was saying...

    i think it might be 10.5 for u r own now....i think ive seen both 10 and 10.5

    but since saras isnt our own, he would only be entitled to 8 % raises..

    Yeah, I mean for a team that hasn't made the playoffs in 8 or so years. They sure are better than us.

    They just have that playoff experience the Pacers lack......

    Hmm..

    We win also we have a better supporting cast Snow, Gooden, Sasha, AV, Marshall, Luke. So indiana has Tinsley, Jasikevicius, Bender and a couple more bums. So why did SARAS choose to go for a ring in a pacer uniform I do not know because in Indiana he won't start, he will get less money, and they are going to loose to Cavs. So Sarunas you suck, and go cavs

    Oh I love the guy who says the Cavs are better than the Pacers.

    His theory is our big three is not as good as their big thre.

    Ron, J.O and Jax v. Z, Hughes and Lebron.


    he says J.O. might have the edge on Z. That is laughable

    JO is superior to to Z........But Hughes and Lebron are easily greater than Artest and Jackson.

    Lebron James is a top 3 player in the NBA that is only going to get better and better. Hughes is a better player than Jackson.

    I would trade JO, Artest, and Jackson for Z, Lebron, and Hughes...because Lebron James is spectacular.

    Yikes no way I do that trade. Hughes lead the league in steals but is hardly a lockdown defender. JO/Ron/Jax combined are so far ahead of Z/LBJ/Hughes on the defensive end its not funny.

    Reading some of the comments on the Cavs forum is really getting me fired up. Many of the Cavs fans are really making good points about how good the pacers will be

    "Well it's time to dry our eyes and suck it up."

    Sometimes a good cry makes one feel better. Don't fight the feeling

    "We don't need him anyways...Cavalier pride"

    And he didn't need you. Playing Pippen v2.0 to Jordan Redux wasn't all that appealling.

    "We are still deadly even with Snow"

    I won't make any silly comments about the brown or red colored snow that certain areas in the rust belt have been known to get being deadly or anything. I won't, I promise.

    I feel for them because getting your hopes up about something like this (or about Ron being reinstated - though I never had my hopes up about that others did) only to be let down is tough. On the bright side, they still have that guy named LeBron and some other nice pieces so they should not be heading off to Secaucus each Spring as long as they keep those things. Anyway, it could be worse; they could be Hawks fans.
