If this team is healthy going into the playoffs... well I'm not gonna jinx anything. I'll say that I think this is Clevelands best championship contending team to ever step onto the floor or a field but I won't say more than that because you know, this is Cleveland lol. So amazing to watch these guys play right now. Awesome.

So amazing to watch these guys play right now. Awesome.Something Danny Ferry said last summer has stuck with me. From the perspective of a guy who won a title as a player and as an executive with the Spurs, this was Ferry's take on the Cavs' loss to Orlando in the ECF:"We found out how difficult it is to win a championship."In other words, everything builds upon what came before it. And making a title run is a grueling, draining act. Not only do you have to play really well in the regular season, you have to survive four rounds of increasingly difficult playoff competition. You have to have enough left in the tank, physically, mentally and emotionally, to survive late-round assults from deep, talented teams -- games that are often tightly-contested and will come down to the team that wins the final few possessions.You have to want it. Bad. And then you have to go out keep winning until mid-to-late June. And staying healthy helps.That's what I want to see out of the Cavs for the rest of the regular season and playoffs. This hunger to win, this mental toughness to keep winning in the face of adversity -- a mental toughness they didn't have a year ago. If they maintain that until late June, they can win a title. In fact, they're the favorites, because I don't think there is a hungrier team out there than the Cavs. It's all about how you react when the later rounds of the playoffs try to chew you up and spit you out. Last season, not so good. This season? They seem to be better-equipped, but you still have to make it happen, prove that you learned something from the ECF.I want to see this team win with the same drive, hunger and intensity as the Jordan Bulls during their second three-peat. Those teams were the embodiment of wanting to be great.

They're starved. We're starved. We don't wanna shed another tear unless it's tears of joy. This is their year! This is Clevelands year! It's gotta be. It's gotta be cause we're never gonna have a better look at this thing then they do right now. Get it!!!!!
