A Open Letter To The Cavalier Fans...From The Windy City

Victor BoydContributor IMay 31, 2009

Tonight, the Magic eliminated the Cavaliers, and I feel for the city of Cleveland and the fans, because they must be hurting.

Best regular season record, MVP and Coach of the Year, all down the drain.

My advice to these long suffering sports fans is: DON'T BELIEVE THE HYPE!

Tonight, you have come to understand what I've been saying forever, "it don't mean a thing, if you ain't got that ring." And what you had this season in the Cavaliers was a tease of a team. And anyone that knows the game should have saw it.

First of all, this is a "old" squad, Wallace, Smith, Szczerbiak, and Ilgauskas are all ancient and it showed in this series.

The guards in Williams and West are small, and Mo Williams has no heart whatsoever, he constantly disappeared and West is a third guard at best. 

Mike Williams—the 2009 NBA Coach of The Year—was constantly and thoroughly out coached by STAN VAN GUNDY. He couldn't find an answer for what the Magic were doing all series.

This leaves LeBron King James, MVP, Mr Hype Machine, whom scored 13 points in the first quarter, only to score seven for the rest of the game!

Was he tired? Michael Jordan won a title with a case of the flu.

Truly great players make those around him better, they aren't shut down for three quarters of a game this important to their team. MVP's show up, and champions grow up.

And if you don't understand why King James isn't a champion, just look at how he responded once that game ended, because this is "man" time in the NHL and NBA and James isn't quite there yet.
