Calgon take me away (to Cleveland): Game 5: Celtics v Cavs tonight
I was watching TNT earlier this week and I heard Ernie Johnson use the term "LeBrondo". That made me laugh. Rajon Rondo was the story of Game 4, and LeBron James was the story for Game 3. Both teams split games on their home floor (i.e. basically trading wins and losses). I think I recall LeBron saying that he wanted to guard Rondo tonight. Well, let's just hope that that doesn't open up the floor too much for Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, and Ray Allen. Can you tell that I'm a Cavs fan?!?!
I hope Cleveland is bringing more of its offense and defense to the table tonight and is ready to dominate. I got into a discussion last night about the merit of Mike Brown. My friend was saying that he couldn't coach. I admit, I am a member of a "Fire Mike Brown" group. We both remarked that the only play that Coach seems to call in the huddle (i.e. after a time-out, etc.) is the "Give the ball to LeBron" play. Trust me ~ he and I are smart and have high basketball IQs, but I assure you that even the dimmest bulb on the shortest bus could figure that out!
**** Coaches are in a very unenviable position. We love them when the team wins, and we second guess and join "Fire XYZ" forums when the team loses. I like Mike Brown, when the Cavs win and when he's not snubbing Zydrunas Ilgauskas. Regardless, I will still ultimately blame Danny Ferry if the Cavs don't win a NBA Championship this year.
Come on Cleveland, it's GO time at Quicken Loans Arena!!!
