The Cavaliers may have just signed their ticket to get closer to bringing a championship to the city of Cleveland. By replacing the sub par Zydrunas Ilgauskas for a solid power forward in Antawn Jamison.

Jamison's 20.5 points and 8.8 rebounds compared to Ilgauskas 7.5 points and 5.3 rebounds, which should improve with the duo of Shaq and King James.

Adding Jamison makes good playoff sense, and with Cleveland Jamison will not have to shoulder the team as its leading scorer, which suits him better in the grand scheme of his style and his leadership abilities. 

Down the stretch the addition should also fare well for the aging Shaq, as Jamison will aid in rebounds, and take some of the load off in the paint, and aid in resting both Shaq and LeBron without having to worry about one or both sitting and getting into a comeback situation as we have seen so many times with the lackluster supporting cast of last season and at times this season.

The addition of incoming PG Sebastian Telfair should also add more depth to a guard spot that has been somewhat poor in the first half but don't look for him to make a huge impact, unless there is an injury to one of the present starters. Telfair uninjured is a far better point guard then Daniel Gibson, give him some stability and he could turn into a top tier guard.

With the three big men in Cleveland and a semi solid guard corps, look for the Cavs to run through the Eastern Conference playoffs like a freight train, and take what they learned last year and improve on last seasons failures and represent the East in the Finals.
