I don't quite understand the backlash, here.

Im not sure either dude. But then again, when it comes to the collective logic around here, people are convinced that ALL of Cleveland's success was literally JUST Lebron James, and only Lebron James.

They forget that Mike Brown had this team rolling for some amount of time. He just happened to slam up against the fine-tuned machine that was the Boston Celtics at the time.
