  • George Thomas writes about Ben Wallace and Zydrunas Ilgauskas pondering their future.

The Morning Journal

Columbus Dispatch

  •  Michael Arace writes about Orlando's unorthodox style of play which gave the Cavs' trouble and ponders what moves the Cavs need to make down the road.
  • Rob Oller says the Cavs had better find some answers for the weaknesses Orlando exposed.

Around the Internet

  • On TheClevelandFan.com, Brian McPeek looks at what went wrong this series.
  • ESPN.com'sTrueHoop blog says the reason Orlando won the series was because of their better execution and Chris Broussard writes that the Cavs simply lost to the better team.
  • At Yahoo! Sports, Dan Wetzel writes one of many columns questioning what this loss will do for LeBron's decision about his future in Cleveland and Kelly Dywer gives his recap of Game 6 and the series.
  • SI.com has a roundtable discussion with a few of their writers about LeBron's future with the Cavs and Ian Thomsen writes about Dwight Howard's domination and why the Cavs lost to the Magic.  He makes a good point that Cleveland would probably have rather faced the Celtics with Kevin Garnett than these Magic in the Finals because of the matchup problems they posed to the Cavs.
  • Charley Rosen at FoxSports.com gives his reasons why the Cavs went from unbeatable to beaten.  I do not agree with his assertion that "believed the hype . . . and became unbearably arrogant".  He says that while the media praised their "togetherness" they actually were looking down on their opponents.  I think he's making too much of that -- what's wrong with a team having fun together?  I don't think they ever disrespected an opponent, and they certainly weren't taking the Magic lightly.  Orlando won because they played better, not because the Cavs were overconfident.
  • John Krolik at Cavs: The Blog and Kevin Pelton at basektballprospectus.com give their Game 6 recaps.
  • John Schuhmann at NBA.com looks at the reasons the Cavs lost to Orlando and where they go from here.
