Why is it, when Stern's up there thanking us for hosting the Finals, I think of the woman giving the Bad News Bears the little second-place trophy?

Well, that sucked.

Was there a memorable moment this entire Finals for the Cavs? Talk about crapping the bed. Woulda been nice to enjoy ONE win. Yecht.

Props to SA. Just clearly a better team.

And, I am of the belief the embarassment of getting swept is EXACTLY what the doctor ordered in getting this org to do what is necessary this offseason to make the moves to get us to the title. I feared we would come back and win two games, and then the mantra would be we needed to only make a few changes......

I've lived and died with the Cavs more than any other team in Cleveland.

That said, I can't begrudge Tim Duncan for his statement, because he is arguably the most dominant post-Jordan player right now. Someday, we will be saying the same about LeBron, but this series belonged to Duncan and to an equal extent Parker.

We've spent the last two seasons building a team that could beat Detroit. Mission accomplished.

Our new target is now clearly defined.

Joe Tait just said "We need to use a scalpel, not a meataxe, to get ready for next season."

Just throwing that out there in case anyone wants to comment. I think he's more right than wrong.

This team doesn't just need cosmetic changes....nor does it need to clean house. Something inbetween. They need to at least make one significant move this offseason. They just don't have enough plyers on offense to compliment Lebron. THe defense is there.....we need to give Lebron help offensively.

I'm wondering if that ginsu needs to be used on the coaching staff. I think Mike Brown gets it as head coach, but I'm not so sure about his assistants. We need coaches to teach this team how to respond when the game is on the line, because that is one thing I've never seen the Cavs under Brown react well to.

I said it before & I'll say it again.

Great defenses are team systems from effort, sacrifice and smarts, great offense is much more skill based. We lack sufficient skill players at point and post scoring. Need outside shooting in addition to Boobie.

We also lack enough toughness.

Helluva run fellas.
The thing that got me the most during the 4th quarter was the piss-poor announcers seeming surprised that the Cavs even took the floor. These guys seemed to think that the Spurs could win without showing up. Yes, we got swept but fought hard. (swear)

Offensively, I agree.

Hank Egan is the man, though.

1. If the Spurs bring a forward off the bench, who primarily shoots threes, and his nickname is "Big Shot" Rob, What is Donyell Marshall's nickname? And, why in the holy god damn hell is he playing 9 minutes of the 4TH quarter when he isn't shooting well. This just in Brown, all he can do is shoot threes, if he's not hot he is USE LESS. Christ, Fabrice Oberto was abusing him on the blocks.

2. If you start then second quarter, and play more than a 10 second stretch with Damon Jones, Eric Snow and Donyell Marshall on the floor, well, you ain't winning that trophy. I don't care who the other two players are either- you're in trouble.

3.I have never seen a team with so many wide open shots in a single series. It goes without saying that I've never seen a team miss so many. 35% in two games at home is always a problem.

4. You are a power forward who just caught the Spurs in a switch and now are isolated on their smallest player. The guy with half a brain gives the ball up, goes to the block and gets it back for the easy deuce. Drew Gooden jacks the line drive 22 footer.

5. I hope you guys who think they can rid themsleves of Hughes etc. are correct, because this team needs to get better. Keeping the roster the same isn't going to cut it

JB, you are not going to let up on me, are you?

How exactly do you propose that I accept blame for this loss. I want it to sound good on radio (which will be amazing, seeing as how I'm a bit tipsy and not even sure I'll stay on hold long enough to go on air).

Explain you effed with Jobu at the most crucial times and we paid the price. Think of a cliche and Reghi will understand it.

Just playin' JD.

I think I'm out and goin to sleep.

Peace out all. It has been fun.

We'll get em next year!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

That was easily my best radio appearance ever.

Considering my last was getting taken to school by Greg Brinda in a conversation about why Danny Ferry sucked so bad.
