Cleveland fans also like Zydrunas Ilgauskas, the Cavaliers center. Brown says the local fans way overrate the guy. Z is slow and doesn't have good defense. I agree, but I also see a guy who works his tail off and has a great offensive game. But Brown thinks the Cavs should let the guy go, and if you disagree with him, then you are just too much of a homer and can't see the real Z.
Aparently Brown feels the same way about Tractor Traylor:
Add former Cavs forward
Robert "Tractor" Traylor to the ever-growing list of Cleveland athletes whose abilities become overrated by local fans. Many raved about Traylor's late-season performance and showy enthusiasm last year. But it didn't take new Cavs coach Mike Brown long to size up Traylor as an up-and-down NBA journeyman unable to sustain consistency for 82 games because he's 10 to 15 pounds overweight.
Brown is right, Tractor is overweight. Well done. However, I think we all can agree that this Cavalier team has a ton of holes. And if you decide to let go of Z and Tractor, you are just making more holes to fill. Maybe I overrated them, I don't think so. My problem is that I don't trust the Cavalier management (espescially with Larry Brown) to fill the team with the correct players, so why give yourself more holes to fill.
