Cavs can't compete with the elite teams in the NBA?
Their record vs. the top 3 in the NBA in the regular season (Boston, LA, Orlando) is 3-7.. The reason? Its simple really.. Lebron is enough to beat almost any regular team on any given night but when they face quality opponents they don't have enough fire power... So what makes anyone think thats gonna change now? They may very well end up with the best record again but they won't beat LA or Orlando in the playoffs.. Both teams have four players any given night that can consistently beat you..
LA: Kobe, Odom, Artest, Gasol (assuming Odom comes back)

In my opinion, Celtics > Cavs>Magic(But close). Not sold on VC making the Magic into championship contenders.
i agree that ferry has tried to make us matchup with the Magic better, but Moon, Parker, and Shaq doesnt make it harder to defeat the Celtics
The C's owned us in the paint and Shaq eliminates that problem.
LeBron had to pretty much play the full 48 minutes vs. boston in their last playoff battle because neither Wally nor Sasha could defend Pierce, and we had no one else besides Delonte and Z that was playing consistent ball.
Parkar, Moon, and Shaq help us out offensively and defensively.
