OT: Cavs/Pistons Game 1

The Cavs ride into Detroit today to make their first eastern Conference Finals appearance since 1992. Lebron James looks to make sure it's not simply an appearance, but rather a quality series. However, as has been the case throughout the Cavs playoff run, someone else needs to step up (a la Donyell in game 6 against the Nets) in order for the Cavs to have a shot at humbling perhaps the best starting 5 in the NBA.

This series will be even tougher than last year's. The Pistons will not take us lightly after last year's near defeat, and winning three in a row at any point during this series seems unlikely. They will be ready, and the swap of Chris Webber for Ben Wallace make the Pistons, in my opinion, an even bigger threat than last year.

But I look at it this way. The Red Wings are always good. The Tigers had their year last year and will continue to be trouble this year. The Pistons had their championships. I'm tired of hearing people whine about the city of Detroit being down and out and needing sports to lift it up. No city needs this more than Cleveland, and if the Wine and Gold can channel that passion, we could take this thing.

GO CAVS!!!
