    Really? That seems odd…

    I thought I would care more about this, but somehow I don’t.  As I’ve said before on this site, there are a lot of things that I like about Lester Hudson, but I don’t have a lot of confidence in him being able to fix the things that are wrong with his game.

    I guess the Jeremy Linn comparison isn’t looking quite as apt now is it?

    I never caught Lestermania.

    That’s too bad. I know its not like losing an impact player, but I was looking forward to having him come off the bench as a nice fixture for years to come. I guess that teaches me to count my chicken before they hatch…

    He was one of those “want it too bad” kinda guys.  He played like the basketball was a bomb, and the only way to disarm it was for him personally to throw it at the basket.

    well he saved us more often than Jack Bauer then

    Thats odd, why wouldnt they let him play out the season? How much would they have to pay him if he were signed for the rest of the year? Whats left anyway. Gotta be a money issue.

  • I’m trying to get upset about this but I just can’t…undersized 2s that are high volume shooters are a dime a dozen. Add in that he’s already 27 years old and this just isn’t much of a loss. Great story when it happened and one of the few enjoyable parts of the last 20 games, but that’s it.

    Noooooo! If they get rid of Manny Harris I am done with Cavs. I will become a die hard Charge fan.

    He had 2 or 3 games that it seemed like he was unstoppable… then he had 5 or 6 games where you didn’t know he was on the floor even though he played 30 mins… well, you did know… he went 0-7, 1-10, 2-10 in some of those games.  Seems like he had mad potential, but clearly he doesn’t… he is prolly just mad at this point.
