The LeBron era was summarized on Sunday night in Boston (I went to the game): LeBron, who had inexplicably taken the night off, was suspiciously absent from the Cavs' bench for the first five minutes of the third quarter. After arguing with my friends as to whether or not he realized he was wearing a purple suit in the first half and decided to change, LBJ finally strolled in from the locker room, only there were no seats left on the bench. He wandered to where David Wesley was sitting, and stared at him for about seven seconds, before Wesley got up and more or less sat on Damon Jones' lap. Wesley and Jones remained in the same seat, looking extremely awkward, for about five minutes until the next timeout on the floor occurred. Priceless."

That used to drive me nuts about the Indians.....1995 was the last true great-fun regular season until 2005.

Wouldn't this imply that the rest of the team will be better the last quarter of the season? Lebron CANNOT go balls out and get beat on for 82 games and be in top form in the playoffs. This is the Cavs problem, it's not that the rest of the team doesn't care, it's because they aren't all that scary talented. Again, as I mentioned yesterday, the stars in this league and in the past 25 years (Jordan, Bird, Shaq, Duncan etc.) find away to get some time off. The Cavs need either A. To be able to deal with him taking some time off or B. Get good enough so he doesn't need to single handedly carry them in the playoffs. At the end of the day he's not a perfect player, but he's creating the offense by himself, he's the only guy on the team that generates easy buckets passing the ball (That courtesy going unreciprocated) he's watching guys air-mail 12 footers and hitting the undeside of the rim with lay-ups. He's the face of the franchise, and he deserves some of the blame during lulls, but I think he's doing all he can under the circumstances to help them win.

Pup, what I'm saying is that he isn't winning the title playing balls out for 82 games
