Cavs Surge to the Top of the Eastern Conference

The Cleveland Cavaliers might be the most misunderstood team in the NBA. Their star, LeBron James, is no worse than the second best player in the league, their bench is good enough to be the starting lineup for a lower rung Eastern Conference playoff team and their coach, Mike Brown, is a level-headed defensive specialist who is turning the Cavs into San Antonio East--and yet media members are still proposing ludicrous trades to "improve" the team and criticizing Brown for his alleged shortcomings. What exactly is "wrong" with owning the best record in the Eastern Conference and posting victories against both of last year's NBA Finalists? Brown is not a former NBA player nor does he spout colorful quotes so apparently he will never be a media darling or fan favorite.

My newest CavsNews article explains that the Cavs passed a major test by going 8-1 in a nine game stretch that culminated in an impressive win over the defending champion L.A. Lakers:
