Analysis on why LeBron/Cavaliers lost to Celtics in 2010 round 2
 
I'm not even a Cavs fan and I'm shocked. I'd put the Cavs as 80-85% favorites to win the title this season. Honestly, if I were rich, I'd put down tons of money on the Cavs.

Biggest hurdle I thought would be the Magic and the Lakers would be an afterthought.

Matching up, I thought that with Shaq, Big Z,Jamison, Mo will, Lebron, and emerging JJ hickson and the always annoying effective Varajao that the Magic would just crumble under the weight of the King's troops. And that Dwight howard would probably be in constant foul trouble and be negated this whole series either by having to guard Shaq, chase Big Z around for jumpers, or be annoyed outta his mind by Varajao.

But now to see them absolutely play like crap and to see Mo williams not show up at all and to see how poorly mike brown coached his players I'm truly stunned. Let's not forget that this team was just cruising and I mean straight cruising through the regular season. Taking pictures, dancing, laughing, treating the game like it was nothing and just destroying teams.

And now to be beaten in the 2nd round by an old Celtics team? WWWWWWOOWWWWWWWWW.

What went wrong?

dude get the **** out of here... the blame is on both of them. How exactly did lebron bring it last game? That was one of the most important game in the series

If you're just talking about Game 1 and Game 3, then yeah sure.

I think the expectations for Mo Williams are just a lil bit less than the expectations for LeBron though. So when he has an off game (or series, or month, or whatever), it's not quite as magnified as LeBron's off game(s), right? :confusedshrug:

Not looking too good for Cav fans.

Come on without Lebron this series would be a sweep. Game 5, sure he didn't "bring it". But the other ones, I had no problem with. Gotta give the Celtics credit where credit is due.

Lol I love how Mo williams is "being aggressive" tonight and trying to live up to the second best player on cavs billing and just committing turnovers.

Yea, blame Mo for carrying the Cavs in the first half. :no:

He's played a great half. But Lebron has played really well also. He's still not shooting well...but he's played great defense and could easily have 10 assists if shaq/parker/jamison/west/moon would do something with wide open looks and positions

This may be true but Lebron has not tried his hardest in some games..

Lebron is playing ok. 4-12 in a must win not gone cut it

The Cavs -- AND LeBron -- just quit.
 
They gave up. I swear it looked like LeBron purposefully threw the ball away at the end of the game there.:confusedshrug:

At least it was in the closing seconds of the deciding game and not by halftime, unlike another contender against boston...

I am curious to hear what Lebron will say at his press conference. Will he announce his summer plans or will he leave it until later in the summer to get more attention.

Wow he is not showing much emotion for losing, but maybe he is the type off guy who holds it in and silently broods
