lol that's exactly what i was thinkin when i heard the cavs were playin the pistons and hawks/heat. i mean if u weren't a cavs fan and a knowledgeable person u knew this matchup was coming up and that orlando would wax em like they did all season. hell i didn't even watch the first 2 rounds cuz i knew they were worthless indicators of how the cavs would respond to good teams. LBJ is playing great, but u had to be blind to see that there was nothing he could do to overcome the dwight, hedo, rashard trinity.
BQ1: I think the cavs have been overrated all season and have wondered how they got all those wins! i mean they are a good team but i never thought during the season they would be in the finals. the game is all about matchups and when u think of cavs, all u can think of is lebron. when u think magic or celtics u think of at least 3 players! the cavs were doomed from the start!
BQ2: I think home court now becomes critical. I think LA responds well to games viewed as "more valuable" meaning the go-ahead games or if they are down one. they, for some reason, can't close a game when they are up a game and it sickens me as a Laker fan. kobe said it himself they just don't play as hard when the game isn't "as important." u know ur not playing when u get hammered on the boards by 20 and miss so many FTs. I think LA will win game 5 at home and hopefully the urgency shows up being 1 win away from the finals.
BQ3: lol i wouldn't say crush, but there will definitely be silence! or complaints about officiating as usual!
BQ4: Mo Williams is trying to get his team confidence and can be misconstrued the wrong way, but i don't think he's cocky. it's good to use any strategy to get ur team the advantage, but what it comes down to is two equally inexperienced teams playin in a final where the magic are clearly the better team.
