‘Hudsanity’ Continues as Lester Hudson Lifts Cavs

D-League alum Lester Hudson took over the fourth quarter of last night’s win against the Cats, finishing with 25 points, 8 boards and 6 assists. Hudson has been a beast off the bench for the Cavs over the last three games, averaging 24.5 ppg. From the Plain Dealer: “Hudson, who signed his second 10-day contract on Monday, has taken advantage, much as fellow D-Leaguer Jeremy Lin did in New York. ‘The Linsanity thing I thought was similar to what’s going on right now with Lester,’ Scott said when asked to name another player who had this kind of impact. ‘I think he’s just playing great basketball.’”

    You gotta love this. I thought Sundiata Gaines last year was a nice story…this year is even crazier. Good work by Hudson.


    Wow boy was i wrong i said they shoulda gave Manny and Gee more mins instead of signing this guy :/ glad to see something positive for the Cavs especially with Kyrie out.

    Good for him! I was hoping he would stick with the Celtics when he tried to make their club, but with Rondo, they didn’t need an undersized shoot first PG. Their history of having those types of guys hadn’t worked well in the past (Marcus Banks, Sebastian Telfair), but Lester is making the most of his second chance to make the NBA with the Cavs.

    Lester has been a great player for a long time. It’s great that he’s finally getting an opportunity and the recognition.

    Mark Cuban was right. Just change the city from Charlotte to Cleveland. Nobody cares.

    He has been playing good for a while. He went to China and played and I believe he did pretty well there. Had a game for his hometown Grizzlies vs the Lakers where he caught fire and j’e Kobe up. Hopefully he can find a sticking spot somewhere now.
