After PO’ing coach Scott over the last few games by not “getting” the offense down and with the threat of losing out on his starting spot, Scott went ahead and named J.J. as the starter and veteran Antawn Jamison will be coming off the bench.
“INDEPENDENCE — Just four days after calling out J.J. Hickson for his lack of focus in the Cavaliers final pre-game game, coach Byron Scott named Hickson his starter at power forward for Wednesday’s regular-season opener against the Boston Celtics at The Q.
That means veteran Antawn Jamison will be coming off the bench.
Scott said Hickson responded with strong practices over the weekend. Meanwhile, he thinks a bench headlined by Jamison and Daniel Gibson will be a strength for the Cavs.”
