A lot of stupid people make inane statements like the idea that the Cleveland Cavaliers are as bad as the New York City Knickerbockers in the absence of one LeBron James.
I would like to counter with the following:
1) Mo Williams, Antawn Jamison, Shaq, Anderson Varajeo, Delonte West and the other Cavaliers are better than Dano Ganliro and whoever the rest of the Knicks are. Keep in mind that AV and West do not even start.
2) The Cavs play excellent team defense regardless of who is on the floor (within reason). They are capable of winning games even if LeBron is not playing and/or he's having an off night. If you can get stops, you can win. The Knicks play no defense at all. Their system is built for failure.
3) The Cavs arguably have one of the top two or three owners in the NBA. The Knicks have arguably the worst.
That is all.
