Not All Things Are Bad in Cleveland : Five Exciting Moments
In the recent sadness and disloyalty that LeBron James has shown to Cleveland by defecting to Miami, I decided to show that Cleveland has experienced happy moments too, and even despite all sadness, there is always tomorrow, and also the five happy moments that Cleveland has experienced over the past couple years.
5. The 10-6 2007 Cleveland Browns Season
The 2007 Browns season was certainly an exciting time for the Browns season, as the Braylon Edwards got over a 1,000 yards that year, and Anderson had a prolific year too. The team looked like a good one, and the offense was finally clicking on all heels. It was promising, until the following year when it all came crashing down back to reality. But still, this is a bright spot since the Browns' dismal return to the league.
4. The Shot by LeBron James
This was absolutely an outstanding play, and one that LeBron was revered over. I know there may be backlash or mixed feelings, but you have to admit that this play was truly glorifying and electrifying to watch. It is another great moment in Cleveland history.
3. The Four-Game Win Streak
The Browns were 1-11, and were destined for a 1-15 record, until something changed. The Browns' running game came alive, and the Browns began to play defense. They rolled off a four-game streak, kept Mangini's job, and got Mike Holmgren. Dang, who knew four wins could bring so much good luck?
2. The Cavs Had the Best Record in the NBA
Seeing the Cavs' record in the NBA, the 2008 and 2009 season both had over 60 wins and provided some great moments for Cleveland.
1. Landing Mike Holmgren
Getting Mike Holmgren provided one of the most exciting times ever in Cleveland history. The Browns landed one of the most historic coaches in the NFL as team president and for once, the Browns are seemingly on the road to respectability and accountability.
