I’m just sitting here reminiscing over the Cavs 2015-2016 regular season and if you think about it, it really couldn’t have gone any better.
LeBron is the best player in the league the past few weeks.
What’s not to like?
Thank god the preseason is over so we can stop losing sleep over meaningless and pointless regular season basketball games. Enough overreacting and bitching about losses in February and March. Is the regular season a good measuring stick for a basketball team? Sure. But this Cavs team was never going to win 65+ games this season. Kyrie & Shump injured at the start, Coach Blatt fired in January and Lue taking over, chemistry issues seemingly every game… But setting records like the Warriors are was never the point. All that mattered was getting through the regular season healthy. We learned last year that it doesn’t matter what seed this team gets in the playoffs because when you have that #23 guy on your team that’s really all that matters. I specifically remember talking to my friends before the season how I wouldn’t care if the Cavs were heading into the playoffs as a 4 or 5 seed.
It really is crazy how much people bitched about the best team in the conference all season but none of that matters now. The East won’t be the cakewalk everyone thinks it will be. I expect them to lose a few games here and there and hell, they’ll probably even be down in a series.
The Cavs have a real shot to win a title this season. Sure the Warriors look immortal but no one’s ever hoisted a Larry O’Brien trophy after 82 games. When this team is playing at their full potential they can beat anyone any night. I love where the Cavs are at right now. There’s not much pressure nationally to win the title because everyone is already penciling in the Warriors as champs. All the pressure in the world is on Golden State to win a title because if they don’t, their 73 win season doesn’t mean shit. According to Vegas Insider, the Cavs have 4-1 odds to win the title this season and I’m putting my last paycheck on them to do it.
Get ready for playoff LeBron
