weighing in…

the song may or may not be related to this post…you as the reader get to decide…i’m feeling pretty neutral…so, i don’t think it relates…but it is up to you.

the nba finals with cavs and warriors was heartbreaking to watch this year, especially as cavs fan.

and the funny part is i don’t think anyone’s to blame.

i’m just weighing in as an avid cavs fan…so my opinion may mean little…and with lbj’s decision to stay or leave…all i really know is that i would like him to stay.

however, this post isn’t really about me, i just want to talk about the finals.

to see the cavs come so close, yet be so far…and to see lebron work as hard as he did to carry the cavs on his back, especially during the semi-finals and eastern conference finals…if you’re a cavs fan and your heart isn’t a little broken, there’s something wrong with you.

that’s just my opinion, though.

however, the cavs are a team not just lbj…and while i think his supporting cast had rallied around him during the semi-finals and eastern conference finals…i feel like lbj’s supporting cast either got burned out or may not have been seasoned enough for the finals.

and i’m not sports smart enough to say…so and so needs to go, etc…however, looking at the team…if general management decided to keep the team as is…it would give this current team a chance to grow…and if there were some key acquisitions who can mesh well with the team…the cavs could be championship worthy like they were in 2016.

of course this all speculation…and i don’t know the process that’s involved in constructing a championship worthy basketball team.

all i know is i watched my home team rally after being the underdogs basically twice…and with lbj’s hard work ethic and grit…it was hard to watch them not win a single game this finals run.

i guess, i could complain about all the talent the warriors have, especially with a force to be reckoned with in kd.

however, i feel like that would be a cop out.

if i’m one of the opposing teams…especially their general management…i would be looking at how do we win taking into account the warriors are going to stay who they are and only getting stronger.

i want lbj to come back next season…i’d like to see the current cavs team grow together…but i also know lbj needs to do what he needs to do and the bottom line for the cavs is how to create a team to win another nba championship.

and i have no idea how that should look.

so cavs, what’s up?

dear cavs,

hey, so i missed you guys tonight.

i was working.

someone suggested i put in my earbuds and just listen to the game for the app…

however, i somehow thought that might not be a good idea…and yes, i didn’t ask my boss if it would’ve been ok…

so yes, all i’m offering are excuses for not catching the game…

however, i should be good to go for wednesday and friday…

you guys think you got this?

game one wasn’t so bad…and i missed tonight’s game…so what do you guys think could go better?

how do you think you all can better lock in to turn this around and win the series?

got any ideas?

i think game 1 showed the potential of what you guys can accomplish…not sure what game 2 looked like…but, you guys know or have a feeling about what you need to do…

so get it…and do whatever it takes…

love,

the not so sophisticated life

GOAT…

sorry, cavs…the previous song post wasn’t for you…it’s interesting when you get wrapped up in yourself how you can forget people outside of you and beyond your current situation.

however, this isn’t about me.

you guys rocked it, and LBJ, couldn’t be prouder to call you ours.

here’s some of the social media i appreciated before and after the cavs eastern conference win…

“It’s all part of the plan..” #WhateverItTakes #ThisIsWhyWePlay

A post shared by NBA (@nba) on

that cavs game, tho…

i’m wondering if i should say anything about the cavs pace of play last night…

i suppose i will…

i was mult-tasking, but from what i saw…

my reaction was, “who is this cavs team and where did they come from?”

and i think what i really liked…is they weren’t so lbj dependent…they were a team, putting up big numbers together and as a team…

and if you caught any of the post-game interviews…i felt like they were describing that they were in the zone so to speak…

so it’s my hope that this kind of play from the cavs, is consistent, and continues…
