Did Jamario Moon earn a playoff spot? “Cavaliers forward Jamario Moon is a former member of the Harlem Globetrotters, recently won the team’s “Good Guy” award and would easily be named Class Clown if the NBA gave out superlatives like a graduating senior class. And while his playing time has been a bit of a roller coaster throughout the 2009-10 season, the last two weeks have provided Moon with an excellent opportunity to showcase his talents. […] Given that the small forward position in Cleveland is not exactly up for grabs, [he and Jawad Williams] appear to be in battle for a rotation spot come postseason.” [Me/Fox Sports Ohio]
It definitely didn’t hurt us… “What [the Santonio Holmes trade] means for the Browns is simple. The Steelers just lost a very talented former Super Bowl MVP. The loss of fire power, the distractions off the field, and poor offensive line play could mean that the Steelers are ripe to fall from being a contender in the AFC North. Since the Browns finally beat the Steelers last year and the Steelers then missed the playoffs, maybe the Steelers will be blowing this team up and doing a little rebuilding. Even if the Steelers don’t go into rebuild mode, it feels good that the Browns look to be moving in the right direction and the Steelers are dumping talent.” [No Logo Needed]
And while we’re on the Steelers, what about their quarterback facing a possible suspension? [Red Right 88]
Credit to Mike Brown: “Of course, it helps to have the NBA’s best player in LeBron James. It helps to play in the sad sack of the Central Division. But the Cavs have absolutely dominated the league this season — despite having to cope with adding two new starters in Anthony Parker and O’Neal; despite O’Neal being in and out of the lineup with injuries; despite some roller coaster moments with West’s emotions.
The team had to handle the mid-season blockbuster of a trade that sent Ilgauskas into a 30-day exile and brought Antawn Jamison. This team is enormously gifted, but seldom has all the talent been available to Mike Brown. That’s why it must be noted that Brown has done a very solid job this season.” [Terry Pluto]
