Are you guys rooting for the Cavs or does your hatred of everything Cleveland now allow that....?

Cavs. Gotta love the story. Local boy comes home to win his local team first championship. Would be great for those bastards up there. Lord knows the Browns ain't winnin' nothin' soon.

I understand DC. I'm just torn right now. I'm rooting so hard for Golden State after the Rockets beat the Clippers I don't know if I can make the switch if it's Cavs v Warriors....

I've actually been a Cavs fan (as much as I'm a fan of any NBA team) for quite a while. Let's go Bron-bron!

So it's pretty much the match-up most experts thought it would be at the start of the play-offs Cavs v Warriors.

So, we are we all rooting for....?

Going to be tough without Love. I'm not sure how you stop the Warriors. Do you focus on Steph or do you try and shut everyone else down and let him get his?
Hear them Bengals growling mean and angry.....

The Cleveland jinx is alive ans well! Last night was probably the best four quarter NBA game I've ever personally watched. If Lebron or Shumpert would have dropped one of those two last desperation shots at the end of the fourth quarter, we'd be looking at what appears to be a pretty nice path to a Cavs championship. Of course this is Cleveland we are talking about, so neither shot fell, Irving goes out with a knee injury and the Cavs only manage one mercy basket at the end of overtime when the game was over.

It's disappointing. I've been rooting for the Cavs for the last couple years, and I'm finally seeing up close and personal what it's like to be a Cleveland sports fan. Luckily I'm not as emotionally invested in it as most Cavs fans are, but it's still disappointing none the less.

Realistically, the Cavs need to take game two to keep this a contest going back to Cleveland. That's not going to be easy to do if Kyrie can't play. Especially if JR Smith continues to throw up insane bricks and air balls from all over the court.

I watched the game last night from the end of the 2nd quarter on. I found myself rooting for the Warriors, I guess you can't just change horses in mid-stream after all.

Yeah, without Irving the Cavs are sunk. Awaiting MRI results must be like a death watch in Cleveland right now....

Irving out after surgery. Lebron better learn the definition of supporting cast real damn quick.
