LeBron, on Delly! (Spoiler)

LeBron James, has nothing but praise for Delly's outstanding contribution for the Cavs against the Bulls, in today's post match interview.

How can any Blue Blooded Australian, dislike this outstanding competitor.

7/11- 3/6 - 2/2 for 19 points, plus a shed load of great D! +/- +21

Finally has a use for that arm sleeve other than keeping him warm on the bench.

Lebron 15/9/11 or TT 15/17 probably more important

Before any of you get too ahead of yourselves and think 'delly' is anything more than a third line point guard who's only job is to bring the ball up court and give it to Lebron, have a read

#528497 you can pluck out stats and make any player look bad. Point is Delly has been very solid not just in this game but for the whole playoffs. Have a look at these stats. This is when it counts. Well done Delly.

If 6/1/2.7 is solid then I'm afraid you've been watching the NBL too long and become far too used to average

Anonymous, no one is pretending that Delly is the best player on the team. No one is claiming that he is in the top 100 players in the NBA even. He is a solid role player. He does what he was put there to do, and he does it well. People like David Blatt think he can play, I would take his opinion over yours any day. Whats your beef anyways? Are you a Kiwi waiting to be shat on in August or something? Away with you!

Funny how the article talks about him wanting to shoot from the right side of the floor.

Be interesting to see if players like Kyrie and Lebron spend most of there time on the left meaning he ends up there by default. I hardly think a reserve player like him is going to have much say in where he sets up in the defense, he will end up where he is as a by-product of the more offensivly trusted players.

Almost any player int he NBA can do what Delly does, it`s a personal decision to hustle like he does. Few decide they want to do it though.

Always, always have I seen Matty as a fantastic team player and winner on the court.

His attitude is No.1 and always has been...

This is the NBA, it is the best of the best and he is a back up PG, as the commentators put it.

Well done Delly, you are a big part of the Cavs and will be crucial to their success in these play offs, keep it up mate!

The facts are Delly got a team high score of 19pts today, team high 9 assists game 2, 100% shooting the other day and this is a guy who doesn't play for stats. He does all the 1%ers that coaches love and that is why he gets such a good wrap from the commentators.

I love hustle players. Players who put the team first, who make the smart plays, who play with their heart game in game out. Its infectious. Give me a stat for that.

I dont really care what some troll has to say. Delly is doing what coach asks of him and he is good for the team and for Aussie Basketball. What has this hater achieved? What league does he play in?

Delly was awesome today to close out the series away from home. Hit some massive shots but so impressed by his defence also. Got lots of praise from JVG and Mark Jackson for his D on Rose in particular.

Even sweeter given the timing of his performance. After the suspension & tech from the game before, the Chicago crowd were booing him every time he checked into the game and a lot of times he was running the point.
He shut 'em up good! :-)

First Bogut, then Mills and now Delly. Surely the yanks know how good Aussies can play the game now?
