Numbers Adding Up Quite Nicely for Cavs

Like Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant before him, LeBron James has relentlessly tackled the few weaknesses in his game; less than a month ago I referred to what I called James' "short 'to do list'" coming into this season, namely to improve his free throw shooting, his defense and his perimeter shot. James has made great strides in the first two areas and has made progress with this three point shooting, though his midrange jumper still needs some work.

James' individual improvement, the addition of All-Star Mo Williams and the great defense played on a nightly basis by a deep, talented roster have enabled the Cavs to transform what was once a close race for the number one overall seed into a decided runaway, as I explain in my newest article for CavsNews.com:

Here's the next fallacious argument to tackle, David: the notion that if Lebron were on the Lakers they would have a better record than now, and if Kobe were on the Cavs they would have a worse record than they currently do.

I will of course be writing an article about the MVP candidates but, unlike many people, I am actually going to wait until the season is over--or at least until the playoff seedings have been pretty much solidified--before I do so.
