The Eastern Conference favorites had their season end too soon at the hand of the Boston Celtics. No one expected the Cavaliers to exit the post season this quickly, they were the favorites to try to take away the title from Kobe and the Lakers.
Instead of talking about the exciting upcoming matchup between the Magic and the Celtics, ESPN and other sports news sources have been airing Lebronathons. Anything and everything about Lebron all day long.
Many fans and much of the media feel that Lebron quit on his team. With uninspiring performances in Games 5 and 6 it felt like Lebron was paving the way for the quickest exit out of Cleveland. It will be easy for Lebron to say… look we’re moving backwards, I am all about winnng and Cleveland isn’t close to a championship.
Cleveland is doing all they can to keep Lebron. Rumors have it that Mike Brown’s days in Cleveland are limited and Lebron’s good buddy, who was sitting court-side at Game 5, John Calipari could be hand picked to be his next head coach whether in Cleveland or Chicago. Even the citizens and celebrities of Cleveland are getting involved and produced a music video called “We are Lebron“.
All the talk about Lebron has to make Jazz fans wonder what will it be like in two years when we will be facing a similar situation with Deron Williams. Deron has made a few comments that has rubbed Jazz fans the wrong way. Who can forget his infamous “thats why a signed a three year deal” when Ronnie Brewer was traded. Now at the locker room clean out Deron again was talking about change and when asked how long it will take to make the team a contender Deron replied “I didn’t say I was going to be a long-term fixture. “
Jazz fans most hope that the Jazz can change enough (bring in a big man who blocks or perhaps a veteran presence for leadership ) to keep on improving so we won’t have the Will-bacle in a couple of years.
