Antawn Jamison

Does this guy even exist?? He has been invisible in this series and hasn't done anything tonight. James' supporting cast is a joke, the Celtics are clearly the better team.

I'm 100 percent sure James will leave Cleveland and I believe he will stay in the East. The top three options for him are going to be New York, Chicago, and New Jersey. The reason he will stay in the East is simple, his road to the NBA Finals each and every year will be easier. If he goes out West he will have to deal with a lot tougher competition in a conference full of studs and potential studs. Durant, Carmelo, Deron, CP3, Roy, Nowitzki, Nash etc. etc. The Eastern Conference is just going to be an easier road each year so if he's smart he will stay in the East.

agreed on jamison not showing

agreed on jamison not showing up. I keep seeing garnett score on jamison and jamison missing those flip shots and threes he always takes. there was that rumor that the cavs could have gotten amare if they were willing to give up hickson but they werent. Now hickson's been on the bench the whole series and jamison really isnt doing much

Jamsion

He really needed to step up for the Cavs to win the series. But, he didn't.

Shell of Former Self

I've never seen Jamison so disoriented in an offense before. Anyone who says it's because Shaq and Ilgauskas are clogging the lane is mistaken as Jamison's had to play with Dampier in GS and Dallas and Haywood in Washington. Those guys clog the lane just as much as Shaq.

The only thing I see that is different in the Cavs offense versus the Washington offense is on the screen and rolls. In Washington, you would see Jamison rolling towards the 3 point corners more than in the Cavs offense. IN Washington, Jamison would catch behind or near the 3 point line and use a fake and take a 2 steps towards the basket and do his flip shots OR shoot the spot up. In the Cavs offense, Jamison rolls more towards the center of the court and catching in the 16-20 foot area where he just plain looks uncomfortable. With Boston being SOOOO good on pick and roll recoveries, Jamison finds himself too far in to shoot the jumper with the length of Garnett and Perkins roaming. I agree, he's sucking big time in these playoffs, but in my opinion, it's mostly the offense and personelle he's playing with.

When Jamison retires, I want to remember him as one of the most versatile scorers at the PF position, NOT the bum I've seen in these playoffs.

Give him a break, the guy

Give him a break, the guy hasn't had a whole year to mesh with this Cavs team. We all know its difficult to play around LeBron even for players as good as Jameson. I don't want to hear that "no supporting cast" crap. Just cause someone doesn't do good doesn't mean they are a bad player. There were so many possessions tonight were LBJ would hold the ball for over 20 seconds, and you could just see the disinterest on his team mates faces

LOL...

Sheltwon... Who they give up for Jamison? Z? LOL... They got him for free, Mo Will for free (D. Jones?), Shaq (Ben Wallace)? These isn't fair trades for the opposite teams... They BY FAR have the deepest bench in the league. And This Jamison can't guard KG... WHO CAN? Amare? Bosh? Boozer? They would have been a victim too... Please... You have to go to Jamison, Shaq, Mo Will in order for them score. Its hard to be good when you standing watching LeBron hold the ball for 15 seconds and expect these players to hit the jumper every time. Blame the coach and LeBron since they calling plays. Not them. Move the ball damn.

Not a good fit, Amare would've been better he is a better post up player.

Since when did they need a

Since when did they need a post up player. They needed a 4 who could spread the floor and rebound. Besides Dirk, Jameson is right up there at the top of that category. You can't clog the lane or LBJ would practically be useless on drives
