So I took a little bit of heat for something I said about the Toronto Raptors yesterday. It wasn’t from the comments or on Twitter, but rather a colleague of mine on this site who took offense to a throwaway line I wrote about the state of the Eastern Conference Finals and how easy the Cleveland Cavaliers have made this look:
There are the supporters who believe LeBron is worth even more than a billion dollars, but then again they also think LeBron has a shot in hell against either Oklahoma City or Golden State in the NBA Finals (sorry, Raptor fans) in a few weeks.
Barring some catastrophic injury, the Cavaliers are moving on to the NBA Finals in convincing fashion. It has nothing to do with the Raptors but everything to do with the hot streak the Cavs are on right now with their shooting. It doesn’t mean that reality won’t smack them in the face once they face either the Thunder or the Warriors, but they will once again represent the AAA to the Western Conference’s Major Leagues in the Finals. But let’s enjoy the Cavs dominance right now, led by LeBron James and the hot-shooting Kyrie Irving, who led the way last night in a Nike Kyrie 2 PE.
Oh, and as for the colleague of mine on this site? This is all in good fun, but also…
