Alan, if you have some sort of proof, or a breakdown of the Cavs' budget and financial dealings, let's have it. If not, shut up. These conspiracy theories and anti-Cavalier rants only make you look more biased and more ridiculous.

Ticket prices are up league-wide, and I'm willing to bet you havent been to a game all season anyway, so why are you whining about it in the first place?

What, you think I'm just yanking figures out of my ass? Seriously, Josh, sometimes you act like a real yutz.

With respect to Gilbert's raping, pillaging and plundering of the City of Cleveland, here's a couple of links, just to start. Given that the Plain Dealer's publisher is in bed with the crooks, it's not surprising you'll never read about it in any local newspapers. Gilbert is a sleazeball, plain and simple.

We played well considering our best outside shooter was out. Gibson would have put us past Boston. I have faith we will be tougher next year. Lots of trade possibilities. The guys played well for coming together so late. It was a rush job. A true point guard would be nice. I do like Delonte though, too. He fit pretty well with what worked much of the time. And many teams have a couple capable point guards unlike us.

A rush job??? They had nearly three months together!!! And please, don't blame the lack of Gibson for losing. Good grief.

The Cavs did their best, but it was not good enough. At least they made it to the finals last year. Some NBA teams have never made it to the finals.

Hdawg, you and alan t aren't thinking clearly. We lost game 7, IN BOSTON, by a margin that Gibson instead of Wally Z could have easily overcome. Had that loss been by double-digits, maybe your contentions have some validity to them--but that final game was close enough to legitimately ponder on the what-if of Gibson's play.

Do you mean the same amazing play of the same goof who had previously shot 9 of 23 in the five Celtics games he did play? Wow, what a tragic devasting injury. Perhaps next time Ferry will trade Wallace, West, Smith and Szczerbiak for J.J. Redick. Problem solved.

Well, Alan, let's see--23/9 = 39% if he shoots that well in Game 7, and takes only 8 3's that's 9 additional points...not to mention the change that would have been forced in the Celtic's D. Obviously all this is strictly theoretical, but still worth the imagining.

Dont bother talking to Alan, Mack. He's too busy looking up marginal evidence against the Cavs' front office and lobbying for LeBron to leave Cleveland to care about the actual basketball games. I'm pretty sure Danny Ferry stole his girlfriend or something, because he has a pretty unhealthy obsession with our GM as well. What happens on the court only matters to Alan when his bookie calls and threatens to break his thumbs.

What happened, Alan? Did the Cavs burn down your trailor and steal your girl? Why in the world would you have such a burning hatred for the franchise? It's so unnecessary. It's to the point now where you dont even bother to talk about the games unless the Cavs are doing poorly and it meets your agenda. You're like the worst kind of politician, a bizarre version of Hillary Clinton.

Just stop already... no one cares what you think.
