    Default R.I.P. Pacers

    Men are born for games. Nothing else... the worth or merit of a game is not inherent in the game itself but rather in the value of that which is put at hazard. Games of chance require a wager to have meaning at all. Games of sport involve the pride of victory & the humiliation of defeat; which are themselves sufficient stake... But trial of chance or worth, all games aspire to the condition of war, for here, that which is wagered swallows up game, player, all.

    Surely you've put your entire net worth on the current series price of Cavaliers -215 then. I hear Cedi Osman might even get some early burn in Game 2.

    The only thing you're ignoring is the reality of LeBron's demise.

    He may not even need to play but I would love to see him. If they start Game 2 the same way they did Game 1, he better be the first dude off the bench.

    Here is a song that LBJ and I often listen to together; he uses the left earphone, I the right.

    Bought a little more on Bucks today. I think they win next 3. Certainly win 2 out of 3. Bucks win this series.

    Bucks adjusted series price (+175) available at CGT, South Point and Station Casinos right now.

    Reason for optimism after Game 1? Have to feel like they can play w/ this team.

    Here's the central question: Can a soon-to-be 32-year-old Al Horford keep up with the 23-year-old Giannis Antetokounmpo over a seven-game series?

    Note to Bucks: Keep Horford off the charity stripe.

    With LeBron they're a good team, not championship good, but good. Without LeBron they're lucky to win 30 games and would be picking third in the draft

    Tyronn Lue is imploring LeBron to start fast in Game 2.

    LeBron's first field-goal attempt in Game 1 came when the Cavs trailed the Pacers, 25-8, late in the first quarter.

    This is just delusion. Look at the teams that are picking top 10 this year. None of them had one single player that was of Kevin Love’s caliber before Kevin Love was ruined by playing with Lebron James.

    Bosh and Love’s careers both tanked when they joined forced with lebron. Certainly not coincidence.

    If you think Cleveland would be a good team without LeBron, you're the one who's delusional. Love has always been an overrated player, he put up big numbers in Minnesota playing on a bad team. Kevin Love, Jeff Green, Goerge Hill, Kyle Korver, Rodney Hood, Larry Nance, Jordan Clarkson, JR Smith, Jose Calderon, Cedi Osman, Tristan Thompson. If you think that group is winning anything, you're delusional, you're not going anywhere with a whole bunch of role players and not one star, that group doesn't sniff the playoffs without LeBron

    The Bulls are only picking 6th this year and their team was truly awful, and they even benched and traded their reasonably talented players. So no, the Cavs without Lebron would not be picking top 10.

    Kyrie Irving played 3 years in Cleveland before LeBron got there. Year one they went 21-45, year two they went 24-48, year three they went 33-49. Then LeBron went back there and his first season back they went 53-29. The Cavs had a star in Kyrie Irving, but they went a combined 78-142. If the Cavs sucked with Kyrie as their best player, I can assure you they would suck with Love being their #1 guy

    That's b/c they were tanking with Kyrie for another star.

    If a team built around Kevin Love and the players the Cavs have were trying, they'd be a playoff team.

    Washington is the 8th seed, go take a look at their roster compared to a LeBronless Cavs roster, then tell me how Kevin Love is leading them to the playoffs. John Wall and Bradley Beal are both better than Love, the Wizards roster is much stronger than the Cavs roster sans LeBron. If you think the Cavs make the playoffs without LeBron, you're nuts. Washington was 42-40, Cleveland was 50-32, take LeBron off Cleveland and they win about 20 less games

    Wall missed half of the year and Washington is an abortion without Wall.

    That's the problem when many teams employ the tank strategy. The Cavs roster, sans LBJ would win 25-30.

    Only because they wouldn’t be trying to win. Bench Love for a few weeks. Not trade for small pieces to help out. A sore ankle means benched for 10 days. It’s all about the end goal

    Kevin Love played 6 season in Minnesota. Year one 24-48, year two 15-67, year three 17-65, year four 26-40, year five 31-51, year six 40-42, in six season he went a combined 153-323, and missed the playoffs all six seasons. Obviously they didn't have much talent, but then neither does this Cavs team, if Love couldn't even reach .500 in those six years and never made the playoffs, I don't know how he's leading this mediocre Cavs bunch to the playoffs either. If LeBron leaves next year, we may find out, but my guess is if LeBron leaves, the Cavs would trade Love and start a rebuild

    The Miami Heat back several years ago had 3 top 5 PER players... take Lebron off that team, and they still had 2 top 5 PER players. I bet Kane would tell you a Miami Heat roster with TWO top 5 PER players was incapable of winning it all.
