Ahh yes...Good times. The New York Knicks are in town - and their media - and you knows what that means. Well, tonight, not a lot. LeBron James did not speak to the media before the game, standing fast to his pledge of not talking about this summer during the season.

Ok, no Free Agency talk, how about the return of Larry Hughes? That should be fun, right? Nope - Hughes is out of the game with turf toe.

Anything else? Sure there is. There is another chance to remind LeBron that Cleveland is HOME and where he belongs. It is also another chance for LeBron to see just how bad the Knicks are - or, more importantly, just how far away they are from being a contender.
