    Does the Cavaliers championship let the other professional sports teams in Cleveland off the hook?

    Do the Browns and Indians have more pressure or less pressure to win a championship now that the Cleveland Cavaliers have broken the 52 year drought and ended the curse?

    I think they now have more, especially the Browns. At least the Indians have made 2 WS in the past 20 years and have been competitive for the most part.  But the Browns have been especially inept, granted they are the "new" Browns. 
    That said, I like the coach and really like what they've done so far.  Playoffs might be soon.

      Valid point about them being the "New Browns" because the old Browns became the Baltimore Ravens and they've won two Super Bowls! When the Rams moved from California to St. Louis they too  won a Super Bowl.
      It just makes fans wonder: What if?

      I agree with you about the Indians. Their World Series runs have given them a pass, even though the 1997 game seven loss was one of those heartbreaks. I think Cleveland is truly a football town, so the Browns will always be under the most pressure.

    I would say there is less pressure.
    When the LA  "Show-Time Lakers" were winning championships during the 80s it really didn't matter how well or bad the LA Kings, LA Dodgers, or Rams did.
    Five championships and city parades made people feel great.
    The same thing would happen again during the Kobe/Shaq years.
    Chicago hasn't won an NBA title let alone made it into the finals since Michael Jordan left town. However the city has enjoyed the Stanley Cup  bragging rights in hockey a couple of times recently due to the Blackhawks so the frustration level hasn't been high.
    Having said that if the Chicago Cubs were to win the World Series that celebration would top all of the Bulls and Blackhawk championships. That drought is over 100 years old!smile
