Antawn Jamison’s New, Depressing Reality

by July 23, 2010

With the Cavs’ biggest star ever having bolted town, Jamison is left picking up the pieces in Cleveland. He doesn’t sound too sure about how to go about doing that. From the Charlotte Observer: “The Cleveland Cavaliers acquired Antawn Jamison in mid-February. They wanted a wingman to complement LeBron James. After 12 NBA seasons, almost all of them as the star on a bad or mediocre team, Jamison wanted a championship. But the Cavaliers crashed and burned in the Eastern Conference semifinals against Boston and crashed and burned again two weeks ago when LeBron giddily announced he was leaving Cleveland for the Miami Heat. ‘I was disappointed,’ Jamison says Thursday at his basketball camp at Carolina Courts in Indian Trail. ‘I only got to play with him two months.’ Are the Cavaliers your team now? ‘If I’m there, yeah,’ Jamison says. He laughs. ‘They might want to go young, or in a different direction,’ he says. Jamison has two years remaining on a $28 million contract.”
