Around the Internet

  • 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 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 give their Game 6 recaps.
  • John Schuhmann at looks at the reasons the Cavs lost to Orlando and where they go from here.
