Joe Smith Back to Cleveland

Back to his old stomping grounds: “Over the past several years, the Cavaliers have made pitches to numerous midseason free agents in the hope they would help in a playoff run. For one reason or another, the fit wasn’t right or the Cavs weren’t as attractive as another suitor. Often, some of their rivals were able to land help that eventually made a difference. This season, however, lots of things have been different. Soon, Joe Smith will be one of the examples. Smith and the Cavs agreed to the terms on a one-year contract Tuesday. He is expected to clear waivers Wednesday and then make it official.”

    This is the first time this season that I thought the Cavs have a shot at the title.

    Is Ben Wallace even needed when he comes back? You keep starting Andy V. Joe Smith is the first big off the bench and JJ is your 4th big. What does Wallace add to that quartet exactly???

    This is a MAJOR move for the Cavs but don’t annoint them champs just yet, they still have to get past The Celtics…remember them?

    @Witness: How do you think you did on your test today? When in doubt did you write Lebron? lol. You’re ok youngblood.

  • Teddy-the-Bear

    Yes, I remember when the Cavs were only LeBron. That was last year. And they still are only LeBron, except they have some guy named Mo Williams now, too. Its surprising how well they’re playing with 2 players.
    And Mike Brown sort of sits there and tells Mo to pass to LeBron.

    ^^ plus Delonte West is a core piece as well. They’re one young and talented big away from total domination.
