Well, the Cavs won last night, which is a good thing. But I still am concerned — we had a great record last year, but it didn’t ultimately mean anything in the post-season. We need a championship.
Although, I wonder if it’s not a two-prong dilemma. I’m not sure what LeBron James wants out of his NBA career sometimes. I mean: if he wins a championship here, can he say, “Okay, I did it. I gave the Cavs a championship, now I want to move on” or is it “If I can’t get a championship here, I want to go somewhere where I can”?
Honestly, I don’t know how much more Danny Ferry and Dan Gilbert can do. Ferry refused to make trades just to make trades, considering the core and chemistry of the team more important than headlines. And the one move he did make was sheer robbery (in the best way possible for the Cavs).
LeBron is good for Cleveland and Northeast Ohio in a lot of ways. I would be very sorry to see him leave. I like his style. I like his unselfishness and team orientation as a player — it’s an increasingly rare thing in any pro sport — and while I wish he’d marry his lady, in a lot of ways, he’s a role model for youngsters in this area.
In other news, Les Habs beat the Flyers last night, 1-0. There are four games to go and we’re in sixth place, so unless it all falls apart in these last four games, I have to think there’s a postseason in store for Le Tricolore. Youppi!
