[Mo] Williams said he was much more comfortable and confident coming into this training camp. Last season, he was new to the team, having been traded from Milwaukee in August. He also was coming off surgery for a sports hernia.
“I got a year under my belt,” he said. “I’m more comfortable here. This actually feels like a home to me now. I’m settled in, in a lot of different ways. My confidence is at an all-time high right now. I’m more experienced. That playoff really, really helped me — helped my game, helped me prepare this summer mentally because I know what to expect. Last year I enjoyed it. This year I expect it.” [MSB/Plain Dealer]
New Cavaliers blog looks into the “No Standing” policy: “The NBA has just banned players from standing on the sidelines for extended periods of time while the game is going on. Players will still be able to react to the game, but the NBA doesn’t want the bench just standing around, blocking the view of the fans behind them. [...] This anti-standing “movement” was apparently spearheaded by a Chicago Bulls beat writer, who takes every opportunity to call out the Cavs in particular for their “jerk”-ish behavior.” [Wine and Goldrush]
I know New York could use somebody. Someone like Braylon: ”As rare as in-season NFL trades are, isn’t there a pair of Super Bowl contenders in New York each with a hole at the wide receiver position? Isn’t there a team somewhere for whom it might be worth giving Braylon a change of scenery? If the Browns don’t get something for Braylon before the end of this season, there’s no chance he won’t walk for nothing. And it appears that neither party has a use for the other for the remainder of this season.” [Cleveland Frowns]
Pack it up, pack it in… “With the Badgers coming to town, so too comes that creeping suspicion as to what lies ahead. Wisconsin’s seemingly found a way to make life miserable for Buckeyes throughout the better part of this decade. I’m not going to lie: I was somewhat relieved when it came time for Bucky Badger to be absent from the Buckeyes’ rotation in 2005 and 2006.” [Luke/Eleven Warriors]
