No LeBron, but Kobe Could Do Without Shaq

Monday, June 15th, 2009

The anticipation of the Cleveland Cavaliers versus the Los Angles Lakers  matchup in the NBA Finals or AKA the LeBron vs Kobe finals disappeared back in the end of May when the Orlando Magic defeated the Cleveland Cavaliers in 6 games in the Eastern Conference Finals. 




This was a very disappointing finish for Cleveland (66-16) who had the best Eastern Conference regular season record and best regular season record of any team in the NBA.  This was also the best record Cleveland has had since Lebron joined the Cavs and the NBA.  The Cavaliers were expected to contend in the NBA finals and were not even Eastern Conference Champions.  The Cleveland Cavaliers personnel can now only be pondering what went wrong? What do we do now in the offseason?  There have been new rumors about Shaq heading to Cleveland.  I don’t think the move is a good idea because Shaq is at the end of his career and the move won’t help the Cavs win a championship.

After the Los Angeles Lakers lost to the Boston Celtics last year in the NBA finals, Shaq came up with a rap called Kobe Couldnt Do Without Me.  The rap talks about how Kobe couldn’t win a championship without Shaq, but Kobe proved Shaq wrong this year in the NBA finals after the Lakers beat the Magic in 5 games and Kobe won the NBA Finals MVP to tie Shaq with 4 championships.
