It's hilarious as always, but I have a little beef with this coment:
Although I'm not as high on the Cavs as others -- does anyone else find it ironic that a guy who couldn't play defense (Danny Ferry) put together a team that doesn't look like it can play defense?
Ferry wasn't exactly a known defender, but he was a tought Madsen type guy. He got in peoples faces, he got dirty, he'd punch a guy here or there. My point is, Ferry hustled, and thats about 90% of defense, actually trying. So combine the trying factor with athletic people, add a defense-first coach, and there ya go.
As for a non defender putting together a team of defenders... Billy Beane couldn't exactly hit real well, but his Oakland teams tend to score runs, don't they?
