It's Mo time

Cavs blog by Bob Finnan

If Mo Williams doesn't make it this time, the Cavs might file a protest. The Eastern Conference will probably be forced to replace Magic point guard Jameer Nelson on the All-Star team.

Nelson, having a fabulous season for the Magic, separated his shoulder on Monday. You never want to see another player get hurt, but Williams will accept the nod if it's offered.

It's no lock this time, either, as Celtics guard Ray Allen and Knicks forward/center David Lee are also worthy candidates.

Certainly, he couldn't be snubbed again, could he?

If the Cavs are looking for a big man, the Raptors have one they'd love to peddle - forward/center Jermaine O'Neal. But the Cavs know better than to trade for the 30-year-old big man. He has a lot of mileagle on his body and his knees are shot. He also has a bloated contract.

In his prime, he as a big-time player. The Raptors might trade him to Miami for forward Shawn Marion. But he won't be coming to Cleveland.

O'Neal finished with 20 points and 8 rebounds against the Cavs on Tuesday.

Expect another cluster you-know-what in New York on Wednesday. It's the last trip to New York for the Cavs this year and the media is sure to floor LeBron James with questions about him playing there in 2010.
