Some observations from the Cavs-Bulls game

Cavs blog by Bob Finnan

Bulls power forward Drew Gooden will be an unrestricted free agent this summer. Would it be out of the question if the Cavaliers took a solid look at him? While Gooden was here, people loved to concentrate on things he couldn't do.

But what about the things he could do. He's a scorer, plain and simple. The Cavs need frontcourt scoring. Adding a relatively young frontcourt player who could score would be an added bonus.

There are many at The Q who don't want the 6-10, 250-pounder back. They say his inconsistencies are too frustrating. I totally disagree. He's a great guy and teammate and would be a good addition with age creeping up on Zydrunas Ilgauskas, Ben Wallace and Lorenzen Wright.

Celebrities in the house: Former Indians pitcher C.C. Sabathia (friend of Gooden's); former Cavs owner Gordon Gund; rapper/actor Ludacris.

Taking nothing away from the Cavs' coaching staff, but when you have a young head coach like Vinny Del Negro, the Bulls did it the right way by hiring coaches like Del Harris, Bernie Bickerstaff and Bob Ociepka.

I agree that the Bulls did a great job of surrounding their rookie head coach with assistant coaches with NBA experience. Give Del Negro credit for being able to accept those other egos in his coaching staff, and credit for convincing those coaches to be on his bench.

Still, you can't like the all-guards, all-the-time system he has working. Can't imagine that winning too many meaningful games, and at this point he hasn't gotten through to Noah and Thomas at all.
