How about that LeBron?

by Dan Bilicki In: Basketball

Last night, to my — and the rest of the guys working in the sports section — surprise, LeBron got the type of “help” that the Cavaliers thought they would be getting when the signed a guy named Larry Hughes to a huge deal. The 40 points he scored last night were a season high, but you could have probably guessed it would have been considering we’re talking about Larry Hughes here.

I still maintain that, had the Cavaliers been able to sign Michael Redd during the offseason that they acquired Hughes, the team would have had a better shot at winning the championship last year. The only downside to the Cavs having Redd would be that Hughes is a far better defender. Redd though, can shoot the lights out on any given night.

If I’m the Cavs and LeBron, I’m hoping that Hughes can play like some more, especially down the stretch and take some pressure off the King. James, by the way, picked up the double-double with 29 points and 10 assists.
