Cavaliers Win, Antawn Jamison Unhappy?

Not everyone was pleased with the way the Cavaliers went about their 95-87 win over the Boston Celtics on Wednesday night.  F Antawn Jamison, coming off the bench for the Cavs instead of starting as he would prefer, seems a bit unhappy with his roll -

"It is what it is," Jamison said. "I don’t know what the role is going to (entail). I don’t know how many minutes I’ll play. I’m up in the air, just like you."

Jamison played 20 minutes against the Celtics, primarily backing up starting PF J.J. Hickson.  Jamison scored 4 points on 2-6 shooting, while Hickson led the Cavs with 21 points on 8-11 from the floor.

Whether it is a veteran unhappy being the 6th or 7th man, or simply a case of Antawn Jamison wanting out of Cleveland, this is the type of distraction the Cavaliers can ill-afford - if Jamison's comments are to be taken at face value.

Looking at his body language as he sat on the bench during the final minutes, I think I know my answer.
