    It sure looks like the Cavs are cruising to the Finals

    like the good times when King James was @South Beach (well, mostly)

    EC Finals opponent: Inconsistent Raptors or his buds from Miami (possible 4-2)

    No jinx intended as I am just leaning towards nobody in the East (no homer from any team although I might root for King James or DWade in the Finals)

    That superteam would make any team look like Rec League. They will steamroll Warriors, Spurs or Thunder in the finals.

    Cavs were able to beat Spurs and Thunders only for one game only in the regular season and they were unable to win against the Warriors. I doubt the cavs will be able to sweep any of the top 3 teams on the west unless someone has an injury.

    The Cavs dominated the East in the playoffs last year too without Love in the Semifinals and ECF. That conference did show some improvement in the regular season, but overall it's still a joke.

    You can include Portland to that list as well.

    They will get to face Heats or Rap without 2 of the best center in the league.

    No, Lebron isn't lucky

    Fail at trolling...as if people don't remember what happened with Cav's injuries last Finals.
