The Cleveland Cavaliers had a fantastic 2014-2015 NBA Season. David Blatt in his first year as a head coach in the NBA, took the Cavs to the NBA Finals, and were just 2 wins shy of winning the NBA Championship.
The Cleveland Cavaliers fell to the Golden State Warriors in-game 6 105-97 on Cleveland's home floor. The Cavs won only 2 games against the Warriors and were close in 2 others, that went into over-time. The Cavaliers had to play without 2 of their all-stars in the series.
Both Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving would miss the finals. During the finals Irving would fall to a broken knee cap. When the Cavs lost him, most thought it was over, and the Cavaliers didn't stand a chance. Cleveland won without Irving the same way they won without him in the Eastern Conference finals.
Love miss his chance at playing in the NBA finals in his first season with the Cavaliers, thanks to a bogus move by one of the Boston Celtics, who thought it was a good idea to tug Love's should out-of-place, ripping it out and ripping off the Cleveland fans for the rest of the play-offs.
Imagine if the Cleveland Cavaliers, would have had the luxury of having Love and Irving throughout the finals. I'm not sure Golden State would be the Champs had they been able to play. We can cry over spilled milk as they say, the Cavs were without 2-star players, and they did what they could to bring Cleveland a championship after 51 years of going without.
David Blatt, and LeBron James did a fantastic job taking the Cleveland Cavaliers to a place they never went to before. The team won a finals game in their own arena, and for the most part, they made things very interesting throughout the finals.
Cleveland fans were attending a basketball game in the Quicken Loans Arena on June 16,2015 and that doesn't happen very often. The Cleveland Cavaliers should be congratulated on the tremendous season they had.
Speculation started after LeBron James announced he was coming home to Cleveland, but how many really thought the team would go all the way into the finals, in his first year back?
Then there was the rookie head coach David Blatt. Sure he has coached a lot of basketball, but never as a head coach in the NBA. Blatt would find out quickly what happens, when you have to hold your starting line-up together with band aids.
Even LeBron James had to sit for a couple of weeks during the regular season.
Attrition took its toll on the Cleveland Cavaliers folks. It's time to step back and congratulate the Cleveland Cavaliers, head coach David Blatt, LeBron James and the rest of the Cleveland Cavaliers team for the fantastic job they did this year, keeping the hopes and dreams alive.
For the first time in a long time, the people in the city of Cleveland had some great basketball being played in June. Thank You Dan Gilbert and the entire Cleveland Cavaliers organization.
