It’s like shooting (and missing) whenever you feel like it doesn’t get you into Coach Scott’s good graces:
Graham is a licensed pilot, a trained chef and an accomplished musician. He credits his father for making his sons educated and well-rounded. Joey certainly fits that.
Now Byron Scott seems committed to finding out if he can play. Scott confirmed today that Graham has moved ahead of Jawad Williams in his rotation. He wants to give Graham a fair chance and find out what exactly he can give the Cavs besides a low post presence and the ability to hit mid-range jumpers consistently. If Graham can rebound and defend consistently, he could really push Jamario Moon for minutes at small forward.
I was less than thrilled at the Graham signing but he sure was a breath of fresh air Tuesday night against the Sixers. Needless to say, I was pleasantly surprised.
As for Jawad Williams…. he’s been a disappointment (4 ppg on 33% shooting). He was mediocre at defense and offensively, he seemed to think he was allowed to shoot whenever he got the ball. It was ugly. Between him and Jamario Moon, the Cavs small forward position was awful.
Graham isn’t going to set the world on fire but he should be able to give the Cavs something.
Welcome to the rotation, Joey.
