    ^ He is exactly the kind of player EVERY team needs. The moment i secure a superstar, im looking at a Larry type player to add next.

    I saw an amazing Nance stat on Twitter yesterday but forgot to save it. It was something like this:

    LeBron with Nance on the floor is a +54 since the trade.
    LeBron with Nance on the bench is a -29 since the trade.

    I know we had to make that trade, but I really miss Nance off our bench.

    That's the tweet, thanks.

    So, LeBron, who is the best player in the world, makes everyone play better. But Nance makes LeBron play better. Therefore, Nance is the real best player in the world!

    And before fans say we shouldn't have traded Larry, his numbers were obviously going to be better than with his time in LA and I don't think its necessarily because he's starting now either. When you play with better players it makes the game easier for you and Larry is showcasing his game more.

    I'm just happy for him more than anything.

    Teams really have to respect Nance's ability to roll to the basket for the easy dunk when Lebron is coming off that screen that Larry set. Not only helps both Lebron and Larry, but the shooters on the court.

    Dangerous and tough play to defend.

    Sad to say, but I've actually been following the Cavs more than the Lakers since this trade. I simply can't bring myself to care for any players on the team for fear of their being traded for cap space.

    Nance has really been ballin' in a Cavs jersey so far.

    12/8 shooting 61% and playing only 25 mpg. He has averaged 16/12 in the last 5 in the starting lineup. These are really good numbers.

    Man I miss him. But he struggled defensively against someone bigger like BroLo.

    yeah, and on a few occasions he couldn't make the lakers pay for switching smaller guys onto him. he's limited in some important ways, but i still think he's a winning basketball player. team first, all hustle, smart, appropriately sized for his position. you give a couple stars three guys like him and they win a title.

    Nance did score over smaller defenders on switches, hit a mid-range J, missed a trey (surprised me on that one) and had a cool alley oop from James. Did his usual workman like game, boards, contests and hard rolls after screens. Even hit a pair of free throws.

    We sagged off Nance when he had the ball and dared him to shoot. Still not reliable on that shot whether it's confidence or mechanics...

    The cavs fans really seem to like our players we sent, particularly Nance.

    LLLLL already rubbing off on him. Now Nance is ignoring kids looking for autographs

    :Laugh:

    It’s like adding poison to the water. Hopefully we don’t sign him.
