Eastern Conference Finals....any thoughts?
Cleveland Cavs vs Toronto Raptors
A few hours ago, we all witnessed Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals. In the early minutes of the game, Illinois talk show host said, "Cavaliers are up 6 points to 2 the game is over" I laughed but I agreed. Toronto Raptors won't be able to stop the Cavaliers strive for a champion. This Cleveland team just went 10 and 0 during the playoffs. Meanwhile Toronto struggled against the Pacers (probably would of lost if the refs weren't Raptor fans) They also struggled with the Heat out in Miami. It would take Jesus and all his disciples to lead these guys to a 7 game series against Cleveland and win.
I praise Toronto Raptors coach, Dwane Casey, for the success the Raptors had this season. They have a story book legacy due to not only getting out of the first round, but making it to the Eastern conference finals. This is where their success stop. Drake and Dwane did good this year.
With just 34 minutes of game time, LeBron James gave us 23 points, 11 assist, and 10 rebounds. Hate him or love him this is simply amazing. To be a better floor general then your point guard who can be considered one of the best point guards in the game currently is unheard of. You can only imagine how far of a lead Cleveland would of had if LeBron took more then 13 shots. At this point of the playoffs Superstar players usually take more shots. Being effective of the court in more then one way should allow LeBron to continue to be the poster child for basketball and not Steph Curry.
I can only give the famous 92' Jordan shrug to this series. Eastern Conference has been better then previous years. I expected a tougher fight coming from how good the East looked. Still upset about my Chicago Bulls not making the playoffs at all but I still attempt to smile through the pain. The Western Conference's fight to a champion almost look like Captain America: Civil War. We should receive that same fight from the East.
What if Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love injure themselves again?
"We got this far to get swept Kyle! Swept like a team!"
Would have Miami Heat vs Cleveland Cavaliers been more entertaining?
LeBron James leaving Miami wasn't as shocking as when he first packed his bags for Miami. Leaving us all to believe that he'll never return to the reach, beautiful, attractive, and vacation scenery state like Ohio...And though we seen countless of times Dwayne Wade and LeBron James embracing each other as friends and not rivals their competitive edge won't allow me to believe either one would go easy on the other in the ECF. To see Miami fans boo LeBron or Cleveland fans cheer LeBron even harder then usual when Miami comes to Cleveland would of been a treat. Watching history unfold with Toronto making it to the Eastern Conference Finals can be seen a treat as well.....In Canada.
