You know Michael Jordan is watching this going --

They didn't look this 'unstoppable' barely squeaking by the Pacers in 7.

I would not exactly call the team itself unstoppable, but yea, Lebron is carrying them on his shoulders. Big question, where does Lebron play next year? Certainly not in Cleveland.

Umm, Curry has been back for two games now. Assuming GS gets passed Houston, they will roll over Cleveland. As much as I acknowledge Lebron still being the best in the game, he won't be enough. I would not even be surprised if Boston knocks out the Cavs, although I am still picking the Cavs to win the conference finals.

I didn't know Curry was back - haven't been watching that series, but I thought he was out for the season.
And I forgot about the Rockets.

I still like the Cavs chances- if the other guys pull their weight and give Lebron some rest now and then.

I don't watch NBA, but when this supposedly unstoppable team needed 7 games to beat a much weaker opponent and last second shot to squeeze by, it's a sign of struggling and lacking the TKO.

Maybe I'm a little partial to my homeboys.
I grew up in NE Ohio and actually briefly went to the same high school Lebron attended in Akron (several years earlier ), so yeah even though I'm a thousand miles away, still a fan of my old home team. I even worked at the old Richfield Coliseum where the Cavs played back when they were terrible.

It pissed me off when the Tribe blew a 3-1 lead on the Cubs a couple years ago, but happy for Chicago fans. They waited a long time for it. Browns ? Gave up on them years ago--always hated them.

The Bernie Kosar era was worth watching the Browns. The last minute fumble by Byner against the Broncos in the title game really sucked the wind of of them, never recovered.

When Lebron's teammates score 100 points in the game, forget about it .

The Cavs were better last year when they had Kyrie Irving, and yet GS took it in 5 games. The champs will come from the West, most likely GS once again. Lebron will leave the Cavs looking to chase MJ as the GOAT. He may need a few more championships to do that. 2019 I say Lebron plays in either Philly or Houston.

I would argue the Cavaliers are getting better as these playoffs unfold and with Love , Hill, Smith and the rest of the team stepping up, they don't even miss Irving anymore.

Golden State was clearly the better team last year but this year could be different. If the Cavs keep playing like they are now, they'll knock off Boston much easier than the Warriors can get past Houston. We shall soon see.

And I realize the Rockets killed the Cavs back in February, but again, they're a much -improved different team now.
