Are You Okay With Mo Williams's Guarantee?

ORLANDO, FL - MAY 24:  Mo Williams #2 of the Cleveland Cavaliers reacts during the game against the Orlando Magic in Game Three of the Eastern Conference Finals during the 2009 NBA Playoffs at the the Amway Arena on May 24, 2009 in Orlando, Florida.

The series favors the Orlando Magic, who are leading 2-1. The Magic have dominated the series and could be leading 3-0 if it were not for the current MVP, Lebron James.

The Magic won Game 3 fair and square, so why is Mo Williams still talking about it? Sure, he might be the missing piece to LBJ's championship quest, but should he be talking this much?

For a guy who is averaging 17 points, he sounds and carries himself like he is the best player on the Cleveland Cavaliers.

I saw the way both Williams and Ben Wallace "flopped" during the game. After their performances during the series, they have no right to say a word to the press other than that they will at least attempt to help out James in the rest of the way.

After seeing all of the games in the series so far, Mo Williams has no right to guarantee a win, let alone trash talk Magic guard Anthony Johnson.

Williams said, when asked about the elbow he received from Johnson during Game 3, "Why should I care? Anthony Johnson only plays 12 minutes."

Why, all of a sudden is Williams acting like he owns the world? He was brought on to the Cavs to be a role player, not to be a big mouth that acts like everybody is against him.

The truth is, everybody liked Williams better when he was helping the Cavs get wins, instead of guaranteeing them.
