Dreaming of the Finals
Last night, I told myself I wouldn’t get too excited about the Cavs playoff hopes until the playoffs actually started. That lasted about 12 hours. The more I think about it, I think the Cavs are going to the finals.
Lisa and I were discussing this today at work, and as much as she doesn’t want to see a Cavs-Spurs series, that’s exactly what I see happening. And if it does, expect to see this highlight over and over again. In fact, go see it now. I’ll wait for you.
Ok, you’re back. Wasn’t that awesome. Let’s see it again. OK, I’m good now. Honestly, I don’t think the Cavs could beat the Spurs in a 7-game series, but getting to the Finals would be a huge step for LeBron. And it’s not out of the question. They’re going to have an easy series against the Wizards, then another relatively easy series against the Nets or Raptors (and I think the Raptors will win that one). Then they’ll get a tired team from the other side of the bracket, the side with the Pistons, Heat, Bulls and Magic. It’s not gonna be easy to get through all that.
Besides, things are going good for Cleveland these days. The Browns have the No. 3 pick in the draft, the Indians are 4-2 at home (even if 3 of those “home” games were in Milwaukee) and NBC’s “30 Rock” (a very underrated show) even featured Cleveland in tonight’s episode.
