It may be now or never

Entering the 2009-2010 basketball season knowing the expectations are high and the pressure of winning now is a must, the Cleveland Cavaliers have exceeded everything except one goal.

With LeBron James entering free agency this summer many around Cleveland think this season is do or die. Win or lose LeBron to another franchise. The Cavaliers have done everything anyone could have asked them to accept win a championship. The Cavs have the best record in the league at 52-15, was first team to clinch a spot in the playoffs, have a league leading 7.2 point average differential and are 6-2 against the other top 3 teams in the east. They are also in the top 5 in Defense and have two players (LeBron James and Anderson Varejao) leading the league in +/- minutes. Varejao is in the running for Defensive Player of the Year and LeBron James looks like he locked up the MVP award 4 months ago.

Danny Ferry has done everything in his power to give LeBron the best chance to win with the current roster. Ferry added Shaq in the off-season and most recently acquired Antawn Jamison to the Cavaliers giving James the best team he as had in his 7 seasons in the NBA. Ferry has put together a very unique team who are very loose with their antics before the game, during the games and after the games and it seems LeBron James is a happy man in Cleveland. But the same question has always come up, can LeBron get Cleveland over the hump and finally win the NBA Championship?

While James is laughing and dancing with his Cleveland teammates many wonder if he will be doing the same next year or should I say in June?

  2. Yeah I got lucky. Do you know of any citizen journalism cites out there in Cleveland? If not start looking.

    I just added you on facebook and will try to add you on twitter as well.

    • MIke, do you think I have the talent to write something so to say like you do? I feel like I have the talent and I just declared a minor in journalism. Also maybe since you told me to look for citizen journalism cites in cleveland , could you help? Or recommend? Where do I start looking for one?

  3. Thanks for saying that. I don’t consider myself that great because I still have a lot to learn. I’m very fortunate for having the opportunity to do what I do. It just took a little initiative.

    I saw this, you might want to look a little more into it.
