He is just fine in Cleveland, thank you very much. Gibson is a 6-foot-2 guard and entering his sixth NBA season. The Cavaliers are the only team for which he's ever played, and he doesn't mind that one bit. In fact, he'll tell you he couldn't imagine being anywhere else. And yes, he remembers the Cavs' lengthy losing streak last season. -------------------------------------------------------------- New role for Cavs' Jamison: Mr. Everything Antawn Jamison has been many things during his 13-year NBA career. This year, he gets to be Mr. Everything for the Cavaliers. That's a lot to ask for a 35-year old forward coming off pinkie surgery. But it's a role for which Jamison says he is well-prepared. "I'm gonna go in with the same mentality I always go in with," he said from the Cavs' practice facility Monday. "I don't feel anybody can stop the type of game that I have, whatever type of game you want to title that as. But whenever I'm needed to score, I'm gonna be there. Whenever they need me to do other things, I'm going to bring them to the table as well."
