It's funny to think that if

It's funny to think that if LeBron had stayed in Cleveland, he could have had a supporting cast of Varejao, Hickson, and Danny Green. While not the best, I don't think the Cavs cap situation was as bad as everyone made it out to be. Shaq and Big Z were coming off the books, and Jamison could have been moved next year. If the Cav's weren't so infatuated with size and physicality than their team could have been nasty going forward.

C- Varejao
PF- LeBron
Sf- ?
Sg- Green
PG- Williams

They would have had a decent bench too with Hickson and a plethora of shooters in Parker, Gibson, and who ever else they drafted/signed. I think this is a good time to talk about how the Celtics and Lakers dominance over that three year stretch really put an emphasis on big teams around the league, and how unfortunately for Cavs fans the era didn't change to a smaller game until after Lebron left. Also this goes to show us how personnel is imperative to championship success. LeBron can't be at his best unless he is surrounded by weapons, and has a clear paint to work with. If the Cavs had just nutted up and fired Brown when they should have, than the game of basketball could have evolved a little faster.

Greg Popovich made Danny

Greg Popovich made Danny Green into the player he is today, no way he would've developed into what he is in the Cav's system.

I know, and that's why I

I know, and that's why I tried to stress the fact that they held onto Mike Brown for too long. Green can shoot the ball, and that's a skill he's always had. He was a 4 year player, and improved every year at UNC, so I don't think it's farfetched to think he would still be a serviceable player in the NBA. Players who have the will to better themselves usually succeed.

The point of my post wasn't to antagonize and play the "what if" game, but more so on how the NBA has changed in just a few years.

What does Mike Brown have to

What does Mike Brown have to do with Danny's lack of success in Cleveland, Brown was only his coach for one year.

No!

No! Danny Green has made himself into the player he is. As much as I like the Spurs don't forget they waived him twice.

Don't get me wrong, Danny

Don't get me wrong, Danny Green definitely had to put work in to get where he is. Popovich just has a way of bringing out the best in players.

Someone posted that Danny

Someone posted that Danny Green has the most points of anyone in the Finals. He would be the most unheralded Finals MVP in history.

Then the other young wing player named Kawhi Leonard is a total beast. The best rebounder in the series, a guy who is giving LeBron fits, is active on offense, and even hit a 3 pointer yesterday.

The Spurs are winning the battle of the wings.

Another mind bender: The Heat's Big Three of LeBron, Wade, and Bosh has scored as many points as the Spurs' Big Three
-- Kawhi Leonard, Danny Green, and Gary Neal.

If Tony Parker's injury isn't too bad, then LeBron might be a week away from going a Dr. J-esque 1 and 3 in NBA Finals.

"and even hit a 3 pointer

"and even hit a 3 pointer yesterday."

You do know Kawhi has become a consistent corner 3 point shooter right? He averaged 1.1 Per game on the season, and had a 37% 3PT FG. He also hit 2 yesterday and hit another one the game before.

4 star rivals

I remember when he was a 4 star recruit on Rivals.com and ESPN had him ranked as well. Never really broke out at UNC like expected, but stayed 4 years and improved his shot every year. Let's be honest Roy Williams + 4 years + New Found Dedication + Greg Popovich = a recipe I generally wouldn't bet against...Popovich = Belichick of the NBA
