Re: If Cavs finish with 67-68 wins but fail to win the title..
No I don't think I'd qualify it as a choke.
Fact is, LeBron still does not have a defacto no.2 option. I would say both Gasol and Odom and any two of the Celtics big three are better than Cleveland's no.2/3 options.
LeBron is still also very young, if he won the title now he'd be well ahead of schedule.
The Cavs record is impressive, don't get me wrong, but outside of the top 4 teams, the East has a lot of mediocre squads to beat up on too.
He will win MVP though.
