Many of you know that I am a avid fan of the New York Knicks, despite this past season being the worst in franchise history.

The Brooklyn Nets got knocked out in the first round, so without a New York presence in the NBA playoffs, I am picking the Cavs to go all the way.

The Cleveland Cavaliers will win it all this season, because they have the best basketball player on the planet, Lebron James. They also have one of the leagues top shooters in Kyrie Irving, and supporting players like JR Smith, Timofey Mozgov, Anderson Varejao, and Shawn Marion. These guys all bring a ton of experience and skills.

The one flaw I do see is the Cavs tend to let up on the D. However, because Lebron is such a strong presence, his voice will be heard and respected by his team mates. After all every one of those guys are pinching themselves when they realize they're playing with Lebron James.

If they can stay focused, and JR Smith (who doesn't deserve to play on a church league basketball team) knocks off the crap he pulls to get himself suspended, they should beat the Bulls in this series, and move on to the conference finals.

I like Lebron James because he's a clean player, always shows respect, and he came back to Cleveland, a city that has never won an NBA championship, and most likely wouldn't have had a chance this year without his return.

They have their work cut out for them, with the series tied at one a piece, the take on the Chicago Bulls in the windy city tonight.
