The Weakest Link: Cleveland Cavaliers

Someone, possibly Immanuel Kant, once said, “A chain is only as strong as its weakest link.” I don’t really get what that means, but as the playoffs approach, El Blowtorch will be profiling the worst player on each team’s roster. Then, the players will face off in a simulated one-on-one game of NBA 2K8 if it’s available at Video Villa. Obviously, this will provide the in-depth analysis needed to predict the winners for each playoff series. Up next, the Cleveland Cavaliers and Dwayne Jones…

The best way to sum up Dwayne Jones’ importance to the NBA at large is to review his transaction history.

June 2005 – as an early entry candidate, Jones is not drafted by an NBA franchise.
August 2005 – signed by the Minnesota Timberwolves
November 2005 – assigned to the D-League
January 2006 – traded to the Celtics along with Michael Olowokandi, Wally Szczerbiak for Marcus Banks, Mark Blount, Ricky Davis, and Justin Reed
October 2006 – traded to the Cavaliers for Luke Jackson
March 2007 – assigned to the D-League then recalled from the D-League

So basically, undrafted, T’wolves to the D-League then traded for a bust, a stiff, an idiot, and a nothing then traded for an injury machine then D-League, now to the Cavs! Way to go Danny Ferry!

Fun Facts:
Enjoys Japanese Kabuki theatre…regularly cuts Cavaliers teammates hair…was a member of the NIT All-Tournament team in 2005…owns a 27” LCD television…has 14 tattoos

Proof That Dwayne Jones is not Damon Jones:

I'm not convinced that is not Damon Jones. That could be a fro-hawk on his head. Plus he looks like he's about to shoot a three.

But the rest of the Cav's bench would like to thank you for not picking them for the weakest link.

Anything over 13 tattoos is just showing off.
