Let the controversy begin. As the Cavaliers most hated player ever is certain to be on this list it will be interesting to see if anyone else can somehow steal the trophy from him from the voting.

With such a dominant figure taking up nearly all the minutes at this position since 2003 there hasn't been much time for anyone else to make an impact at the 3 spot so this one could be a runaway (that is, if people don't vote with their grudge in mind.)

Check out the bios after the jump.

There really isn't much to say about these first two guys but I'll give you a little.

Lamond Murray, 1999-2002: In his 223 Cavalier games he notched 15 points, 5 rebounds and 2 assists per game. He shot 38% from the three-point line and had a PER of 15.2 with Cleveland.

Clarence Weatherspoon, 2000-2001: Baby Barkley wasn't really a small forward but we're going to toss him in here because he did a nice job for his one year in town. In his 34 minutes per game he averaged 11.3 points and 9.7 rebounds a game. His PER was a very solid 17.4.

LeBron James, 2003-2010: In his 548 games with the Cavaliers he averaged 28 points, 7 rebounds, 7 assists, 2 steals and 1 block per game while scoring over 15,000 points. His PER was 26.9 in the regular season. In 71 playoff games over 5 seasons he averaged 29.3 points, 8.4 rebounds and 7.3 assists per game in 43.5 minutes per night. His playoff PER was 27.1. James also won the NBA Rookie of the Year award and was named NBA MVP twice while with the franchise.
