I know everybody is saying this is Cleveland's year, and the all the hoop la about the win streaks, Utah and Oklahoma City is on, and how Mavericks is making a good push.

But let me bring you back to reality this time last year Cleveland only lost one home game last year and it was against LA, and they had a better record last year at this time than they do now.

Has anybody noticed that the Lakers are still winning with Kobe resting and healing for the playoffs.  If that is something not to take notice than I don't know what is.

Lakers are a playoff team without Kobe in the line up.  But with Kobe in the  lineup they are a championship team.  There are going to be good teams in the playoffs that are going to make it fun to watch.  But good teams don't win championships, great ones do.

Until Cleveland, Denver, Orlando, and even Utah realize that you are looking at the Lakers repeating and being your 2010 NBA Champions.

There is a difference between the 82 game season and the 28 game season.  When you hit the 28 game season, whatever you did in the 82 games better be in the back of your minds because it doesn't matter anymore.  Any Championship team will admit to that.
