It would be like

Z

Not at all.

Eric Snow stinks; he's been living off the rep he was (wrongly) given in Philly. He's not a good PG and has never actually run an offense. So the Cavs would be able to have Snow be a "table setter".

Kobe and LeBron don't like playing off the ball. Neither is especially good at moving without the rock.

I been Donyell Marshall fan for years but as much as it hurts to admit he's on his last legs. Big Z, much like Donyell, is also looking at his twilight years.

Plus, the Cavs bench sucked last season so imagine what it would look like after trading for Kobe Bryant?!

I strongly disagree with that statement.

They both move without the ball very well and as we all saw on team USA, they made eachother better.

Will Andrei Kirilenko return to the form that made him an Allstar, will he continue his deplorable slump, or will he be somewhere in between?

Will Denver remain healthy for a whole season? If not, who do you think will spend the most time on the injured list?

Are Miami's days of relevancy over?

Are the Suns going to miss Kurt Thomas a lot more than they think they will?

Will the Warriors keep it going or shall we just say "nothing gold can stay?" (pun intended).

Was that the first Robert Frost reference ever made on ish?

What will be the biggest trade of the season? Will there even be one?

You are confusing the willingness to do it in one setting (FIBA play) with the ability to do it effectively in all settings.

The Cavs bench consisted of: Anderson Varejao, Donyell Marshall, Daniel Gibson, and Eric Snow.

Outside of Varejao's energy and rebounding none of those guys really bring as positive traits to the floor that outweighs their negatives.

Beside his incredibly streaky jumpshot he brings nothing of value to the floor.

Um no.

Gibson is a beast defender. Great hustler. Is a solid passer, has good handles but doesn't want to "upset" the wonderful mike brown offense...

His jumper isn't streaky. It has been gold all season.

You're clearly a Daniel Gibson fan; I'll just leave it at I think you're very very wrong.
