1) It was '91, not '89.
2) Jordan had 50+ point games against the Pistons since 1987. Still, he had to wait 4 years. Despite LeBron having a better team than Jordan had back then and the Pistons being worse than the Bad Boys' team (and, thus, LeBron having a better chance to "dethrone" the Pistons), it still shows you that you don't jump to conclusions after regular season games.
3) No way do the Cavs win anything close to 6 in 8 (hell, let's see them win ONE first), at least with a squad resembling this. And no, LeBron isn't the best player of our lifetimes, except if we were born 2 weeks ago.

I wasn't aware that torches were passed during the regular season.

If you guys saw the game last night, you might know why he posted this. at least I think.

During the game (NBA TV broadcast) they mentioned that during the regular season of 91, the Bulls beat the Pistons in a close 2 point regualr season game and ended the regular season with a 7 point victory against them. They then went on to sweep them in the playoffs.

The guys last night said that was the passing of the torch from the Pistons to the Bulls.

The commentator was Scott Williams who was on that Bulls team and he felt like it was passed with those two regular season games. It built their confidence.

I don't know about passing of the torch in this situation but I do know the Cavs can beat the Pistons or anyone else in the Eastern Conference when they play their best game.

The only teams the cavs can't beat when they are playing there best are the mavs. And suns.
