Jones is talking about getting minutes, come on man. You had minutes all year and have not produced. If I were the coach you would be bench for a few games to see if that would spur you on. Look, in the lost to the Heat, Johns and Marshall could not find a three when needed. Brown stop going inside and start letting you guys pump up the jumpers and look where it got you. The game was won until that point. What is it going to take Jones/Marshall. Take the pressure off yourself and relax. Just go play and quit looking at yourselves as the savoirs of the team. It is sicking to see you guys come in at this point.Snow brings the ball up and you guys run to the wings spotting up. Please, get the ball and drive down the lane and quite being scared.

No matter how much money they invest in players, the team will never live up to its potential as long as you have veteran players coming in to back up someone who has only been in the league a couple years. Until the team is in fact regarded as a team instead of "#23 and them" no other starter or bench player will have enough motivation to do well for the Cavs.

I don't know what both Jones and Marshall add to our team.Jones falls in love with his "Best in the world" Attitude and guns and misses many! Marshall looks like he should be going to his mailbox getting his social security check...He looks old!

I'm not a real big basketball fan, but since Bron came I have watched almost every game. Why??? He had added the missing "excitment" to the game. Thanks to that "excitment" there are sold out games...Keep up the good work Lebron!!!

For all the talk about the Larry Hughes injury and the underperformance of Marshall and Jones, when are people going to start talking about the elephant in the room -- the weak-willed and risk-averse coaching of Mike Brown. Players like Jones and Marshall need to be coached into improving their performance, and the late-game breakdowns that have become the Cavs' signature all season are a result of ineffective game plans. We dumped Paul Silas for a meltdown that I never felt was his fault yet nobody seems willing to address the fact that Brown has been one of the least-inspiring most passive coaches our franchise has even seen.

I not only think that some of the players are not playing up to their capabilities, but also Coach Brown doesn't have the fire from within to get the job done. Case in point...Mike Fratello. When he coached the Cavs he could get even mediocre players to play hard and perform well. You could see fire in his eyes as he paced the sidelines. It seems as if Coach Brown is just "there" and not pushing the players at all. We have Lebron and Ilgauskas that do their part night in and night out. Maybe one of them should be a player coach?? It seems we have the talent in players thanks to Danny Ferry but lack the teachings of a strict-minded coach. C'mon Mike Brown..get with it or move on!

i don't know if it is so much coach brown or not. clearly damon and donyell are not producing as they have in he past. which is why flip has come on and played so much. prior to him coming sasha was performing decently. if i can fault coach brown for anything it would be to continue going to guys that can't deliver. speaking of that...there are quite a few of those on this team. snow, newble, marshall, jones, henderson, jackson (before injury), etc. etc. they need to get some of these guys off the roster and retool things further. i liked what hughes was bringing, but he is frail and cannot be counted on for a full 82 game season. we paid him megabucks for what 28 games... need better player evaluation all the way around.

Great streak shooters but liabilities on defense, the signing of Murray makes much more sense. The Cavs need players who seek to be aggressive, not bruisers, players who are very active and mobile.

No offensive plays by Mike Brown. His idea of a play book is stand and watch LBJ. Watch the opposition when they come out of time-outs. They score. The Cavs? Nope. No play book. Also, look at what happens when the team comes out after the half. Consistently poor again. If you've been around basketball enough, you recognize this as poor coaching. The inablitiy to formulate a plan at half time.

In looking back it seems that hiring the coach before the GM was not a good move. It seems that Brown coaches an awful lot like Silas did - give it to LeBron and get out of his way. With the general bench play and the inconsistency of some of the starters, most would probably be tempted to do likewise. Hopefully, Brown will learn and/or be given a Tex Winters clone of his own. And wasn't he supposed to be a defensive coach?

Mike Brown is in over his head. This team has way to much talent to play as poorly as they do. I kept hearing how players like him and I think thats one of his biggest problems, he seems to want to be a nice guy instead of a coach! He needs to get some veterans on the bench to help him coach. The assistants he have look more lost than him. They just stand there and hope he comes up with an idea. (Not a plan, an idea)

MIKE BROWN IS INFLEXIBLE AND RIGID. HE DOES NOT HAVE THE ABILITY TO THINK ON THE FLY. SASHA SHOULD HAVE BEEN GIVEN MINUTES TONITE, SO SHOULD HAVE ANDY IN THE 2ND HALF. HE PANICKED AND THE TEAM PANICKED.

I'm glad somebody else has started to realize the CAVs biggest problem is their rookie coach is in over his head. Think about it, the two main things we heard about Brown was 1) he is a defensive coach (defensive assistant maybe, defensive COACH no way!) 2) All the players like him. I guess if you have a coach with no fire or drive, but just wants to get alone with everyone and never ruffle anybody's feathers... He will be well liked. This team has way to much talent for the lack of focus or direction they exibit.

The quality of free agents last year was the problem. The GM did not have a lot to work with.
