Hangovers Happen

Last season, the Cleveland Cavaliers partied. Players, management and fans alike enjoyed every moment of the season and embraced the team’s success with cheers and celebrations. It was truly the best of times. Then came the Eastern Conference Finals and the Orlando Magic. Needless to say, things quickly became the worst of times. The party was over.

Now, in the next morning phase, comes the hangover. While media personnel of the Skip Bayless haterade drinking nature might think its panic time in Cleveland, they fail to see the big picture of an 82 game season. Sure, a 0-2 record is not the ideal start to the campaign, but things are still coming together. Adding four new players and experimenting with lineups will take time to produce the best system. Even more, having two key players not on the court leaves a void in the roster.

There are 80 games left in the season. The best regular-season record of all time still had ten losses. Right now, the Cleveland Cavaliers are using the beginning of the season to get in synch and develop as a team. The talent is clearly present. The problems have been more in chemistry with guys needing a little more time to get used to playing together. While teams like the Celtics and Magic are looking great it must be remembered that they each kept ten of the same players from last season and are fully healthy. For now, its time to sit back and watch this team grow in to a championship caliber force that nobody will want to see on their calendar.
