There you go. I helped you understand what you already knew.

I liked seeing Jamison with the Wizards, and I've always felt like he could turn that team around and lead them in the right direction. With Cleveland, it won't be a challenge if LeBron stays. He's a natural leader on the court, that's gone from him now.

Well, Jamison is certainly an excellent player and I absolutely understand the temptation to go get him from a Cavs point of view . . . Having said that, I'm a huge believer in team chemistry and cohesiveness and my attitude would always be to leave the team with the best record in the NBA in tact. I had similar feelings when Phoenix traded for Shaq two years ago. At that time, it was Phoenix who had the best record in the West (For my many D'antoni haters on this message board, he was the coach!) and yet they still felt the need to tweak their lineup. The vast majority of people thought it was a brilliant move for the Suns and I thought it was a disastrous one . . . Although my feelings aren't as strong as they were in that case, I was not a proponent of the Jamison trade (form a Cleveland point of view) when it was first being discussed. We'll see how it works out.
