It's called "contract year". Prime example from recent memory is Larry Hughes.

So you are telling me in 06 you knew that in the 08 season Chandler and West would be ineffective (likewise with Moon and 07)?

What about Sean Williams?

Boobie isn't a dud. His game has really improved. He finally developed a go to move. His running floater has been pretty effective.

He's just in a different role this year....as in not starting.

What did you expect from a 28 y/o rookie?
His stats per minute are basically the same as last year...he's just a role player with limited skills who had lots of sportscenter highlights because of his incredible athleticism.

Have you watched any Cavs games this season? Gibson is playing like **** this season and is currently cold from every point on the field. (sub 40% field goal shooting sub 30% 3pt shooting sub 65% FT shooting)
