Default Who does Cleveland prefer in the first round?

Chicago, or Detroit?

Seeing as though Detroit could realistically slip down to the 8th seed. I think the Pistons can be an extremely dangerous team for anybody they face, once they get healthy, and have Iverson coming off the bench.

I would say Detroit...I think the Bulls could be more dangerous becuase they guard Lebron better...

They definitely want chicago lol... Sorry, but Cleveland, Boston, and Orlando all want to avoid Detroit. As bad as Detroit has looked at certain points in the season, they're still one of the most experienced teams in the league. I don't want to play a team that has one of the best starting 5s in the league and Allen Iverson coming off of the bench.

I would like to see the Cavaliers play the Chicago Bulls in the First Round because of their great rivalries in the 1990's.

My thoughts exactly. I'm a C's fan, and i want no part of Detroit in the first round. Orlando wants no part of Detroit whether Iverson accepts his role or not, but if he does, and plays well off the bench, they could potentially pull an upset on one of the top 3 teams.

And LeBron also love playing in the United Center. He's averaging 31.5 ppg, 11.5 rpg, 7.0 ape, 1.8 spg, and 1.0 bpg against the Chicago Bulls this season.

It's not really a rivalry when one team absolutely dominates the other. Hell, when one player dominates the whole team.

They beat the bulls in 5. So they would want them. I cant see the Pistons giving the cavs too much trouble.. But it would be more trouble then you would want from an 8 seed.

Wouldnt the obvious answer be Charlotte?

Edit: I realize theyre not an option on this thread per se but they are an outside option at 8th seed which would put them against Cleveland.

I want the Bulls, mostly because I'm close to Chicago so I would be able to go see a playoff game there.

Either way though the Cavs would win.

Luol Deng plays so well against Lebron. If he's not healthy then they have no chance.
