(Though he didn't take over til they were like 1-15.)Cavs have been irrelevent pretty much their entire existence. LeBron made them the focus of the basketball world. The Miracle of Richfield was a mediocre team that got lucky. The Price/Daugherty/Nance years were some good teams, but there's been a lot of good teams in the NBA.Take away the LeBron years and the Cavs have won 35% of their games and are 4-14 in playoff series. Don't feel bad, though. The Bulls have also been a largely irrelevent franchise outside the Jordan years. They have won 35% of their games sans Jordan, and are 4-15 in playoff series.Moral: get a superstar or you don't exist.
