There was a funny scene in the locker room after the Cavs' loss to Chicago. While congregating around LeBron James, one Chicago-area reporter stepped on Daniel "Boobie" Gibson's foot.
He let out a yelp. "Oh, (expletive)!" he yelled.
Many players laughed, including James.
If Gibson had shown that much emotion on the court, the Cavs would have been better off. He missed all six of his shots from the field and all four from behind the arc for zero points.
He did play good defense in the second half, but he's got to make some shots. Guard/forward Wally Szczerbiak is in the same boat. He was just 1 of 5 from the field for two points in Friday's game.
Those two players get paid to make shots. Any defense, rebounds or assits they provide are a bonus. Gibson, however, is capable of doing so much more than make shots, even though he's pegged a shooter.
Coach Mike Brown said Szczerbiak is a natural scorer, even though he's been up and down since coming to the Cavs.
