Have to remember though... the Cavs won 66 games last year. I'm about 99% sure that the whole league thought this would be a win for the Cavs.... B2B or not.
deal lol, still a big win no doubt not like we played average and won, we let it all out

Dude, it's one game. Sure I enjoyed it, but your first post is a gross overreaction.

Sorry, but it' true.

What exactly do you disagree with? Because I think it's spot on.

People are so used to watching this team fail that I think they LOOK for every chance to slam them.... at the expense of seeing what GOOD is happening.

This team started to take strides at the end of last season.... and Jay seems to have done a good job in carrying that over to this new group.

What's the point of being a fan if you can't rejoice when you're team actually plays a good game?

Exactly. Less than a week ago, before I officially joined this forum, I seem to remember reading a thread about how the Raps were doomed because they lost to the Timberwolves in a pre-season game. Obviously, those gloomy predictions were unfounded. But, just as one loss doesn't tell how the season will go, one victory doesn't tell us how the season will go. We'll have a better idea of how good the Raps really are after 12-15 games.

we win one game and it's like.. HELL YEAH FINALS BABY ! It's good we won but damnn you guys are so extreme. Your expectations become so insanely high that once we go on a losing streak you guys will end up throwing your tv out the window.

While this is true it's important to note that how the Raps play in these REGULAR season games (against good teams) as opposed to what they did in meaningless pre-season games.

That's what infuriated me when I read all of the negativity. IT WAS PRE-SEASON. It was more about experimenting with lineups and getting guys in shape than it was about winning games.

You're right though. We'll see where this team is in a couple of weeks.

I like their chances though.

Welcome to the forum BTW.

Lol.... no one said that.

It's so much easier too to naysay and consistently rip the team and the players when they're losing. You've become very good at it. Expect nothing and you're never disappointed.

some of you guys need to be on lithium... settle down and enjoy the games without planning the championship parade or wanting to jump off of a roof...

and, snooch, glad to see that you thought that Bosh had a good night, after bitching about him for the first 47 minutes...

the true test is Boston b/c they have interior players than can guard the outside shot, something the Shaq/Z combo can't do
