  • SPORTS MOMENT: Any time I'm in the Shoe! - But my most memorable experience was 1989, Cavs v Bulls. I was a season ticket holder, and the 5th game of the playoff series was the most electric atmosphere I've ever experienced. The crowd was nuts from 15 minutes before the tip until "The Shot" ripped through the net. At which point the Coliseum was completely deflated. I don't think the lead was ever more than a few points either way, Classic Game with a defining moment.

Malzahn has a much better shot at coaching in one or both of these games. Franklin has a year maybe 2 left at PSU before they decide they need to go another direction to compete in the B1G east.

Reasons to Pick CAVS - 2 true road games, against the best regular season team ever, and pulling off something that had never been done before in the history of the NBA

Reasons to Pick the BUCKS - coming from out of the picture to Crush Wisky with a third string QB just to get into the ultimate underdog position, and then pull off huge W's twice more. to win the first ever CFB Playoff. 

Both EPIC, and whichever you prefer is supportable.  Ohio vs the World!

"Leaving" was an issue because he is a NEO kid, and because of the public spectacle of it all. Otherwise - what 20 something gazillionaire would rather spend February in the CLE rather than South Beach? Ultimately it works out pretty well for the Land, but the "decision" also added to the losing legacy that was Cleveland pro sports until Sunday.

It's not revising so much as updating.  I was at that game in 1989, game 5 of a 5 game series, probably the greatest game I've ever seen live. Like Sunday, it was a close game from the tip and the coliseum was rocking throughout. Immediately before the shot Lenny Wilkens designed a great inbounds play, Elho passed it into Nance at the Elbow and followed the ball taking the hand off from Nance for a driving lay up to go up 1 with 3 seconds left. Without that game, and all the rest Sunday isn't as sweet. Don't forget the past, it's how we got here, it's made us the fans we are.  The tens of thousands at the airport, behind fences and hopelessly far away, but there, or the thousands lining LBJ's street here in Akron even later, swarming his van, just to be close to a part of history. 

Go Cavs!!  Tribes up next!

The Cavs can and should win on Thursday. Sunday they will need to play with the fire they played with last night to have a chance. Barnes won't play that badly and GSW will have Green back - History could be made - or repeated - which would be soo Cleveland
