- 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.
