Lebron and Big Ben. Those two players would win you most games on their own.
This is a great move for them IMO.

I agree that this really helps the Cavs if Ben quits his crying. Here in Chicago he has done everything that he can to divide the locker-room. He gets angry at a coach and plays locker-room lawyer and fakes injuries so that he doesn't have to play.

I mourn the loss of Joe Smith. He seemed like a decent player in my eyes. Perhaps the Bulls had to sweeten the deal in order to persuade the Cavs to take Ben.

I think it's an improvement for Cleveland but I don't think the deal is that good. Wallace has a terrible contract but so did Hughes so that's wash. Not to mention that isn't the defender he used to be. I think Szczerbiak is actually the bigger acquisition for Cleveland but we'll see how it goes.

Wallace brings no offense to the table, but he'll help on the boards and defensively (off the ball at least). I like Joe Smith quite a bit, and Wally, if healthy, could contribute 10+ PPG since he should get some good looks. The Cavs really remodeled The House quite a bit; now we'll just have to see how it looks on top of The Foundation.
