Everyone else they should be able to handle, but what about those three teams?
I'm going to ignore the fact that you're basically trolling for more hits and you couldn't be bothered to post in this forum regularly if you really gave a crap about the Cavs.
Magic are overrated. Pistons we can handle. Boston I'm 50/50 on.
The thing about the Cavs, is they get up for big games and they have Lebron. Those two key factors make them very unpredictable come playoff time.
Unfortunately, it's looking like we're going to face the Wizards in the first round (again) so I don't expect a lot of excitement there. I expect the Cavs will beat them, and things will get interesting from there.
I could see us getting out'ed in the 2nd round, but I could also see us going back to the ECF. I'm not confident in our ability to get to the Finals.
We need the off season to get these guys healthy and used to playing with each other. A better coach wouldn't hurt.
