    With the injuries mounting on the other "best" teams is this going to be the year Cleveland wins it's first championship since 1954 ?

    I really hate to see the teams lose their star players and it will diminish it a little if Cleveland can pull it off but hey last year the Cavs lost Love and Irving. It's part of the game.

    Should I start working on my car turning over and fire setting skillz for the Cleveland championship street party riot ? ( I hope people behave but would bet they won't )

    A victory for the Cavs or not so fast fella ?

    It's Cleveland dude...good luck, but you guys are fated to always lose. Think of it as the Charlie Brown of major US cities. Someone will always pull the football away just as you're finally about to kick it.

    The Warriors scored 41 to the Rockets' 20 in the quarter immediately following Curry getting taken out of the game, and went on to win by 30 points or something silly. The Warriors seem unbeatable even without Curry.

    If it comes to that and they beat the Cavs without Curry, I can't imagine what LeBron would do. Maybe leave Cleveland. He would never live it down.

    If it was Cleveland vs San Antonio in the finals, does anyone really think Cleveland would be the favorite? Not me. In fact, I'm not sure Cleveland could beat OKC either.

    That's just mean.

    Hell, I'm not sure they can beat the Raptors (assuming the Raptors get their s*** together, mentally)

    My money is on the Spurs IF they take the time to get better shots on their possesions, they weren't playing that great and swept the Grizz.

    If Spurs and Warriors play in WCF and Curry doesn't play, Spurs go to the
    NBA finals.

    With Curry, I think the Warriors have the edge. I still not convinced the Cavs can make it to the ECF.

    I don't think it was a cakewalk against the Pistons.

    If it's Spurs or Warriors against Cavs in Finals, the West takes it.

    We really don't need any help getting our hopes up. I mean, there are still Browns fans to this day...

    When you get away with so many illegal screens its easy to score like that. NBA needs to enforce its rules.

    Cleveland teams are pretty schleprocked though. Ohhhhh so close... Of course the Browns will suck for many decades. Current Indians team is at best a shy above .500 ball team. Great pitching, no bats. Sweep Detroit and then follow that up by two defeats against a last place team?

    Their 90's team was about the best, but it was bats against really good pitchers. In major games you can't live and die by the long ball.
