The Cleveland Cavaliers came out as the biggest name and a team to beat gearing to the 2010 NBA season they have a truck load or should I say a mountain of talents being recruited. Leading the pack would be the 7-foot-1, 17 year veteran Shaquille Oneal who still dominates the game with his rebounds and his big wide body to bang on centers such as Dwight Howard. Leon Powe a good role player who rebounds the ball very well and is a good post defender. The Cavaliers have also signed two rookies and added Coby Karl, Darryl Watkins and Andre Barrett. The signing of Jamario Moon and Anthony Parker give Cleveland versatility on offense and defense. It looks like Cleveland is likely to duplicate their last season outing. It was just last season when they are soaring high making them the no.1 team going to the playoffs. They were demolishing teams with ease and Lebron James was awarded MVP. The level of confidence have sored to greater heights that sometimes it was mistaken as arrogance. They were labeled as the prima donna team of the NBA. They argue on every call and they laugh at opponents while they are leading with 20 or more points adding insult to injury. They feel they are NBA’s top team even though there were no trophies or rings on their fingers. The Orlando Magic brought them back to the ground and back to reality. The Cavaliers found no solution against a dominating Dwight Howard and they needed a change to make Lebron happy… Lebron’s competitiveness is way above his maturity there was no smiles or no camera pose; there wasn’t even a handshake of congratulations to Dwight Howard… He will be back and he will find his redemption. Now the Cavaliers have added depth to their roster they went into games with a different aura and a different mindset. Yes there are still smiles and some pre game rituals but on their back of their head they know the games are over. This time the Cavaliers are for real and teams should better be ready.
