LeBron's March to the Sea

I haven't written about the Cavaliers in a while because truthfully, I haven't felt like it. Now I know what you're thinking: I only chime in when I have something to complain about, but please, allow me to explain . . . .
When I watch the Cavs right now, I don't have to think. I don't have to worry. I don't have to do anything. Right now, being a Cavs fan is the most relaxing and enjoyable experience that you could possibly imagine. I watch the way they play the game, and my body experiences this indescribable euphoria, the likes of which I have never approached through any other (legal) activity.

Generally, I get motivated to write about one of my teams when they're doing something that requires some sort of analysis. What exactly do you want me to analyze about the Cavs right now? They're playing at a level that only a handful of teams in NBA history have ever played at. They do everything right. They never take games off. They never shit the bed. They just go out there every game and please me. That's what they do. Why ruin that by trying to engage in some long-winded analysis. For the first time since maybe the '95 Indians, one of my teams requires no explanation or commentary. As a fan, I can only sit back and enjoy them. In a way, they're like a beautiful sunset. If I try to deconstruct their beauty instead of just enjoying the moment, I'll ruin the experience. I would encourage every blogger to take this approach with the Cavs right now. Don't tell me how they're doing what they're doing. Just let me sit back, relax my brain, and enjoy the breathtaking show that they put on every time they take to the floor.

Given the feelings I've just expressed, I'm not going to offer much in the way of Cavs analysis. All I will say is that right now, Lebron is doing more damage to Atlanta than any man since Sherman. I mean he could literally beat the Hawks with four NBADL stiffs around him right now. He's playing at a level that's higher than anyone since maybe '96 Jordan and even Jordan couldn't hold a candle to the type of efficiency numbers that Lebron is generating right now. I've been watching him for six years and I'm just flat out in awe. He does whatever he needs to do whenever he feels the need to do it. The floor is his. Everyone else, especially the opposing team, is just there for decoration.

It won't always be this easy. Certainly, there are a few teams out there that could challenge our juggernaut. But right now, I don't want to think about them. I just want soak up all the love and positive energy that the Cavs are sending in my direction. For once in my life, I want to enjoy the fact that I don't have to work to be a fan.

Love the picture Biff.

You're absolutely right about the Cavs - all we can do as fans is enjoy the moment and not get spoiled by it. Lebron and this team are truly amazing.

While I have 100 percent confidence that that Cavaliers are going to win this next series, the playoffs are about to start.

This amount of rest this deep in the playoffs is a rare and valuable thing, its up to the coaching staff to keep them focused and fresh. And at this point, we have no reason to doubt Mike Brown and his staff's ability to do so.

And now, I give you all the "LeBomb James" shot for all of you loyal CMCR readers to do the next time you are out celebrating another Cavaliers win.

- One shot of Crown Royal w / Grenadine (Wine)
-Drop in a glass of red bowl (Gold)

Do the shot in typical "bomb" fashion. Once you are done, dump ample amounts of sugar into your cupped hands and proceed to throw it in the air.

Id recommend doing it at the end of the night, as it might result in you being escorted out.

Go Cavs.

I think that Delonte should crack the athlete power rankings top 10. He has been awesome this entire postseason.

A fair point. I will take it under advisement.

How long will it take for the cavs to retire Eric Snow's number after the cavs win a championship? My guess is it will be at least 7 years, but definitly will happen.
