Starting Gibson Not a Panacea for Cavs' Woes

After the first two games of the NBA Finals, fans and pundits alike felt that Cavs' Coach Mike Brown should bench hobbled point guard Larry Hughes in favor of supersub rookie Daniel Gibson. Brown deactivated Hughes for Game Three and started Gibson but this hardly proved to be the cure all that some people expected it to be. Gibson shot 1-10 from the field, ironically matching Hughes' shooting in the first two games, and the Cavs had no scoring punch off of the bench. I discuss the Hughes/Gibson situation, including Coach Brown's pregame and postgame responses to my questions on the subject, in my newest article for NBCSports.com:
