Cleveland Cavaliers

Recommended Posts

I've had to look deep into my inner being, and ask myself a question of dignity and integrity.

Is it right for me to support the Cavaliers?

Given my disliking of the Browns and Indians for obvious reasons, should I be looking to Cleveland for a basketball team even if Cincinnati doesn't have one to offer? Should I go with the closer to home but out of state Pacers?

Should I stick with 'Bron's boys?

I just don't know.

If you're looking for a team to root for, I know this good on in San Antonio...

Heh, a little too far away from home for me, and I'm not one to jump bandwagons. Y'all enjoy watching that great team play. They have great uniforms too.

I'm the same way -- I wouldn't be a Spurs fan if I didn't live here. The crazy thing is that the organization is so well run that that our core players are all signed for the next few years. And we have even more coming up through our "European farm teams." It's way too early to start thinking about the "D" word, but provided nothing weird happens and the team says injury free, we should be right up there in contention for the next few years. It's a great feeling.

I think the Cavaliers would be right up there in contention if they'd just put some effort into getting a perimeter shooter. LeBron is shaping up to be the best in the league, and I want the success of the team to reflect that sooner than later.

Yeah, every team needs balance, LeBron or no. We know what LeBron can do... now it's up to the Cavs organization to bring in the right compliments to LeBron.

As for your original question, I can't really answer because I lived so far away from Indy, I didn't consider them to be "near by." And my Akron cousins were big Cavs/Browns/Indians fans, so I couldn't support the Cavs one bit as that would have been seen as caving into them. If anything, I was on the Chicago bandwagon during the MJ years.

Yeah, that musta been fun to watch. I've only been a Cavs fan for a couple of years (I joined the NBA with LeBron), so I missed out on most of the MJ and Dennis Rodman hair.

The Cavaliers have signed Damon Jones, formerly of the Miami Heat. He made 225 three point baskets last year. The Cavs have sorely needed an outside shooter, and maybe they've finally found him. Expect LeBron's numbers to continue increasing, and Jones to get the Cavaliers into the playoffs.

I guess I could give my own personal perspective

I grew up near Cincy and was raised to hate everythign Cleveland, Indians, Cavs, Browns all of them. Since then I have moved to norhtern ohio and have found myself checking out the Cavs more and more. I'm not a huge NBA fan till the playoffs come around, so it's mostley Cavs highlights right now.

I look to see a lot f them this year B)

Same here about being raised to hate Cleveland. I never really cared about the NBA until recently with LeBron getting hyped up so much, and with him being an Ohio grown product, I couldn't help but start watching. Now I guess you could call me a fan, though it pains me to say so!

go rockets!!!

YAO 4 MVP!

If any Rockets win the MVP, I'd place my money on T-Mac, not Yao.

lol, yea im a big rockets fan and a big yao fan, well we need to win games fast this year, lets do it!!

Now that LeBron has an outside shooter to lean on, I'm calling him the MVP already. If he can even repeat last year's numbers AND make the playoffs, it's a shoe in!

Yao has to stop being so polite! He'd block LeBron's shot, but then bow next to him and beg forgiveness! :P

Get a little fire in his game, and he'd be sick!

Yao is a bitch in my opinion(not meaning to piss anyone off, OK) I wish I could be that big, or be a lineman in football, just so I could eat whatever I wanted ;) . Yao is a stick figure out there and just doesn't have a winning attitude. Put just a little Barkley attitude in that guy and he would dominate

What do you think about the Knicks picking up Larry Brown? Will they be the latest team he takes to the finals, and then leaves again? :P I guess I'd take that!

NBA sleeper team for the coming season (according to the one and only me).... The Milwaukee Bucks. I like this basketball team and I like Andrew Bogut. Since my Cavs failed to steal away Michael Redd, they still have their scoring machine, and now may have found that inside presence to take them far.

Heh, I think the Knicks will be fine. They won't be in championship contention this season, unless Brown can work miracles, but he'll stay on the team until they win one. It could happen, who knows.
