1. It’s Finally Cleveland’s Time
It’s that simple for the city of Cleveland. Not since Jim Brown and Frank Ryan led the Cleveland Browns to the 1964 NFL Championship has this city seen a professional sports championship.
The heartbreak includes a plethora of bad memories you wouldn’t wish on your worst enemy. John Elway did it to them with “The Drive.” Earnest Byner provided some self-inflicted wounds with “The Fumble.” Michael Jordan sent Craig Ehlo down to the ground in agony with “The Shot.”
Their hero and chosen one even left them at the alter in 2010 for South Beach. It’s been one disaster after another for this very proud and fantastic sports town.
The light at the end of the tunnel has finally arrived, and for this starving city only an NBA Championship will suffice.
Perhaps this is exactly the plan the basketball gods drew up when LeBron was dubbed The King early on in his career. Maybe the pain of being obliterated in 2007 against Tim Duncan and the San Antonio Spurs was just the precursor needed to make 2015 just that much sweeter.
Despite all the uncertainty surrounding the outcome of the 2015 NBA Finals, there is one thing we all know for sure.
If or when Game 6 rolls around and the Cavs are up 3-2 in the series, this starving city of Cleveland will be busting at the seams in anticipation to celebrate. It’ll be must watch TV and one of the better sights sports fans across the world will have watched in a very long time.
The basketball gods will have finally written the script correctly. Taking away the greatest player of this generation from that very undeserved, front-running city in Miami, and sending back to the hardcore, sports crazed city where he belongs.
It is meant to be this way. LeBron will lead the Cavs to a series win in six games.
