Are The Cavaliers This Good Or Is The East That Awful.?


After another embarassing blowout on the Toronto Raptors the Cleveland Cavaliers become only the 4th Franchise in NBA history to start 10-0 in a postseason. Although the eastern conference this season has outweighed the western conference in regular season wins, the east juat doesn’t have enough star power. Teams like the Detroit Pistons, Boston Celtics, Charlotte Hornets, Miami Heat, are all rising franchises, but are at least 1 superstar caliber player from being mentioned in the same breathe as the Cleveland Cavaliers. Maybe the Chicago Bulls with Derrick Rose, Jimmy Butler, and Pau Gasol would be contenders if they added 1 more piece. For the western conference playoff teams they all have at least 2 legitimate explosive scorers from seeds 1 through 8, with tbe exception of the Houston Rockets, who’s most likely about to have a busy offseason. Even though the Cleveland Cavaliers have swept through tbe east thus far, only being battled fairly by the Detroit Pistons in the round, questions won’t be answered about how great they really are until the NBA finals start. After all, it’s not like they have played a team like the San Antonio Spurs, Oklahoma City Thunder, or even the Los Angelos Clippers in a first or second round series. Perhaps the most easy route to a championship. Next round is sure to be without question the toughest task and a career defining series as LeBron and company will face the winner of the Golden State vs Oklahoma City series. Both of those teams play elite leveled defenses that the Cavaliers have not seen yet this postseason. It shall be interesting to see either a Kyrie Irving and LeBron vs Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant matchup, or a rematch of last year’s finals with the exception of Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love being injured. You pick your poison.
