The Cavs are a heck of a lot more than LeBron this year. This team is deep from 1-12 on the roster and they have been, possibly, the most impressive team in the league over the last 10 games or so.

I can't imagine anyone not giving this team any chance, unless they haven't seen them play.

Might want to see what Utah looks like with a healthy squad before giving them a 0% chance.

People are kidding themselves. It's still November. I don't care what the Cavs look like now. It means little. Come playoffs, they won't belong on the same court as the Celtics.

It wouldn't surprise me if the Celtics miss the finals this year. They are playing great now, but it isn't unreasonable to expect a different desire than last. Three great players needing a ring play different than three great players that already won one.

Ron Artest is above-average, and no he was not Houston's missing piece. Laughable that you can put the Rockets in the Finals, much less winning.

They went seven games with the Celtics last year and nearly pulled off the upset in Game 7 (had the lead in the third quarter with LeBron going on a tear... it was a one possession game late in the fourth quarter).

They were EASILY the toughest series that the Celtics had in the playoffs last year... and the Cavs are VASTLY superior this year compared to last. What are you even talking about?

Sorry, but Houston ain't getting one this year.

If Boston isn't strong enough to win again, and it's David Stern's will that they win one, Boston will win again. Anything is possible with David Stern.

In my opinion, the teams that have a chance are Boston, Cleveland, Los Angeles, San Antonio, and Houston. I believe Detroit eliminated any chance of reaching the Finals when they traded Chauncey Billups for Allen Iverson. The great chemistry they once had will diminish big time.

Cavs were a PJ Brown jumper away from knocking the Celtics out of last years playoff. Not saying the Celtics still aren't a great team but without Posey, I don't think the Celtics are as strong as last year.

Not only that, but you have others teams in the East that have improved and will most likely make some noise at the end of the season. You have Cleveland, Orlando, and possibly Toronto, Atlanta, and New York.
