Cleveland got outcoached on the offensive end of it, but who DIDN'T expect that? We're like the Bears, our defense is great but offensively we stink so bad that our offensive makes our defense look worst then it is...

Here's the difference in the series:

Spurs offense: Pass to Duncan in the post, He looks for the shot and if he's double teamed he passes to the open man, the ball moves around the perimeter quickly getting us out of position, Open man takes WIDE OPEN shot and hits it.

Cavs offense: Lebron dribbles and trys to make a play, guys are standing around watching, Lebron gets trapped, he passes the ball to the open man, who hesitates to shoot and passes it to a guarded player who takes an off balanced shot. No picks for Gibson who can shoot lights out, no posting Lebron (until tonight), no passing to Z out of the post and waiting for the double to get a good shot, just all around bad coaching...

y'all keep mentioning the fact you won the two regular season games and that is great and all but, the regular season is just that. The playoffs are a whole diffenent animal. I thought it
was very amusing that James calls himself "King James" and now we have reduced him to a "Jester!"
" Go Spurs Go!" " LaBroom The Cavs! "

Anybody who says the Cavs suck deserves to have they're mouth krazy glued or stuffed with a gallon of clorox. But then again we're all human and say stuff that isn't comprehensive at times. Spurs have been there done that. They basically have a number of all-american players on their teams and even the international players play for their championship home team. Cavs are new at this. Cut em sum slack. They kept pace with the Spurs. I think thats great for a young team making their first appearance in the Finals with the exception of Eric Snow and if I'm not mistaken Mike Brown. Spurs have a lot of experience and know what to expect. Lebron is still has his whole career ahead of him and they'll only get better. Maybe not this year or next year but soon they will be victorious. Hopefully in this lifetime, either before the rapture takes place or I breathe my last breath I can witness the Pistons beating up on the Spurs in an NBA Final. They shoulda had you candy apples, but you guys made sum big shots and pulled thru. Cavs and Spurs...no matter who wins your all winners.

You all need to drop your high school level "root for the home team" and view this with the civic pride element removed. The Spurs are a better team with a MUCH better coach.

Mike Brown has no "Plan B". He gets outcoached almost every game. The opposing coach makes adjustments at halftime and he has no counter moves.

This team is like the Paul Brown era Browns. Hand the ball to Jim Brown and let his talent win games. In this case it's hand the ball to LeBron James and let him win games. Too much emphasis is placed on reminding everybody about the blowout wins against the weak sister teams, though they did have a good record against the west this year.

Lose Larry Hughes, Damon Jones, Ira Newble, Donyell Marshall, Scott Pollard, Fred Wesley, and whoever the Jackson or Johnson guy is that never plays. That frees up money. Then trade Z and that salary for a center that can run and jump. Did you see him dunk last night? He has like a 4 inch vertical leap. He's a fine player for a slowdown half court team. These young guys are a bunch schoolyard greyhounds that want to run and Z holds them back. Keep Snow as a coach to mentor Shannon Brown and Daniel Gibson. The core of James, Varajao, Pavlovich, Shannon Brown and Gooden is a nice starting place. A running center and a shooting guard will fill it.

PS Gilbert Arenas will be available after next season.

Looks like LaBroom is ready to bring on the sweep. Come on people, it is high time to accept the fact that this series is over. Cleveland DOES NOT win big games or championships. The Cavs are lucky they had an opportunity to play in the finals, especially with the dismal statistics they have had all year long with free throws and rebounding. They were lucky they even won 50 games this year.

I see no real reason to be negative about this series. Sure, there would be some disappointment if they got swept, but for me personally it was just satisfying to beat Detroit and get to the Finals. This entire experience with the Spurs is just gravy. Any wins would be icing on the cake.

I never would have predicted that the Spurs would go up 3-0 though. I really thought that these teams were more evenly matched than this.....apparently I was wrong on that one. Still, a fantastic season that has surpassed pretty much anyone expectations.

This team reminds me of the Indians in '94 and '95.....right at the cusp of a long run near the top of the league. Let's just hope Ferry gets the right pieces in place so that we can finally get that elusive title this town so rightfully deserves.

Not saying that Mike won't improve with his adjustments, playcalling, and preparedness but right now he sucks at those key aspects. I said all that to say, Cavs in 7!

Well, I'm not facing the fact that there are people out there denying the respect due to the Cavs. Spurs are a superior team, but the Cavs are also up there. Look how far they have come along. Some roses bloom slower than others. One thing that can't be burned is the truth, and Lebron will win a championship in his career. I could understand if the Cavs were getting blown out but they're running with them at least. They had a very good opportunity to win game 3. Besides, having officials not calling the rite calls makes it a tad bit fruastrating to. Where's the justice. James was clearly fouled. But the official said Bowen never touched him. But I like the way James and Brown handled the situation, they just let it go and didn't make a big deal. Spurs aren't the only classy team out there. Thats crazy though what the Cavs have done. They turned around in 4 years thanks to Lebron and sum great players. Thats the team to watch out for. Lebron is gonna stay humble and absorb the experience in the NBA Finals and use it. Cleveland, your a young team still and have a whole NBA career ahead of ya. Even if you get swept, go and have fun and celebrate. Besides, winning a trophy isn't everything. You got ur health, prosperity, the fans, and God.

I know, he's been MIA for a couple weeks it seems. I'm blaming this series loss on him.....the Cavs needed his positivity.
