Cavaliers, LeBron James eliminated

Morning brew

The Boston Celtics beat the Cleveland Cavaliers last night, 94-85, eliminating the Cavs from the playoffs and pouring gasoline on blazing speculation that LeBron James is leaving Cleveland.

Here's some speculation from ESPN.com's Chad Ford on that last topic.

Columnist Michael Wilbon points out that the Cavaliers were not ready to win a championship.

Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports says LeBron is now free to chase the one title he's forever chased: the biggest free agent of his generation.

And lest we overlook how well Boston played and the fact that the Celtics are heading to the Eastern Conference finals, here's a column by Bob Ryan of the Boston Globe.

Highlights of the game are below, courtesy of NBA.com.

Jamison spent a large portion of the 3rd and 4th quarters (aka crunch time) last night on the bench. Hhmmm??

LeBron can blame whoever he likes, but from what I remember, it was HIS idea to bring in Shaq for $20 mil and he was the one lobbying for AJ.

You know what would be f-ing awesome?

If he leaves and Cleveland picks up a decent FA in his place, the rest of the younger guys make huge strides not having to play 3rd fiddle to LBJ and his ego, Jamison becomes the team leader he always wanted to be and the Cavs go to the eastern Finals while leBron and whatever team struggle.

I know, highly unlikely, but this is professional b-ball and a key injury, a lucky pick and couple of focussed team oriented players can make all the difference.

At least watching the cavs and Lebron lose makes the offseason somewhat bearable as a Wiz fan.

At least Jamison still has his picture of the championship trophy in his locker to fall back on

By the way...Rondo gets full credit for these wins in my book. Two years ago, he was the role player to the 3 stars. This year, he was the star and they were the role players.

Haywood is lucky to have name mentioned in the same sentence as Rondo.

Go Antawn Jamison! Go Wizards. Finally the Wizards at least helped Cleveland get beat in the second round of the playoffs. It was a master stroke in the history of this relatively short Wizard/Cavalry rivalry to send Antawn over to Cleveland and then have him not play defense against the Boston big guys and not be able to shoot (2-10 last nite). Arguably he helped insure that Cleveland wouldn't advance and even more importantly may have helped to insure that King James will not be in a Cavalier uniform next year. Excellent work Wizard organization. The old adage really worked for us this time: "If you can't beat 'em - join 'em (and help 'em lose to the next team)
