The Return of Big Z

The plan is for the Cavs’ center to make his return this week against the Orlando Magic: “To help get back into shape, the Cavs center played a lot of one-on-one with Ferry, the team’s general manager and a 13-year NBA veteran. ‘Obviously playing with Danny one-on-one isn’t the same as playing Dwight Howard, but he’s dirty,’ Ilgauskas said of Ferry. ‘He made me work. We didn’t keep score, but he fouled out a lot.’”

    Mendel, you are the awesomest! ‘Cause, like, even though the Cavs are essentially tied for the League’s best record, and LeBron is the consensus favorite for the MVP award, he and his team need an “excuse.” For what, I have no idea!
    Oh! And, also, as you imply, they’ll totally be back at full strength now – even tough Delonte West, who had started every game before being injured, still won’t be back for a couple weeks.
    On my “successfully making a point” grading system, you just went 0-for-2 in one 11-word sentence. Outstanding!

    Maybe the Celtics should trade for Danny Ferry…

    Ryan Jones. Thank you very much but only g-d is awesome. Although I find you’re grading system flawed and reverence to Lebron quite fanatical, although I am quite the same on anything Iverson. Never the less, Lebron pointed out their loss to the lakers due to being short staffed in what was supposed to be one of the biggest mathups of the season for him. I found he did not take the loss for what it was and made an excuse. So since Z is coming back and delonte is ABOUT to come back, his excuse is ABOUT to expire. Especially when Z is back Delonte could be by then and they are handed their first home loss on national public television by the Lakers on Feb eight. After that game he will not really be able to say they are short staffed so hence that excuse is ABOUT to expire. Therefore the Ryan Jones “successfully making a point” grading system is flawed and short sighted but your support for everything Lebron is appreciated and understood as I have a similar complex.

    I enjoyed that answer. It’s a capital “B,” though. Please.

    Cavs still look good without him. Hell…I almost forgot he was still with the Cavs

    “you thought you’ve defeated me, Mr.Bond. My associates Mo and Bron wish to show you some real Magic.”
