Rising From The Ashes
If the Cleveland Cavaliers don’t want the media attention, then stand against the perception. Stop adding the fuel to the fire. If they don’t like each other behind the scenes, leave that behind the scenes, on the court, while allowing the world believe that you guys like playing with each other. It’s not like Irving and James have to vacation together in the offseason like he and Wade do, but act like it on the court.
If the media criticizes Love for not fitting in, get him the ball in positions to fit in. When the Cleveland Cavaliers are playing their best, they are moving the ball, while also getting it to players in the best positions to succeed. When Cleveland does that, it looks effortless, and effortless with the Cavaliers talent leads to wins.
Stop the cryptic tweets, practicing with foes, and the rumors. Each player needs to check themselves before they speak, and before they do, think about their actions. It’s time for this team to start standing united with each other, and deflect the negative perception of this team. Cavaliers’ fans deserve to enjoy the fact that their team is having a great season. Yet the fans are to believe this team is in a proverbial ditch. That leaves one request.
Please stop adding fuel to the media’s fire — rise above it. It’s time to smother the fire, put it out, and rise above the ashes. It’s time to gear up for the playoffs and show Cavaliers fans what we have yet to see — the team going beyond the negativity. We want to see the night in and night out effort.
We know this team has talent so show us once again in these final 23 games that you have what it takes to beat the likes of the Warriors and Spurs, while rising above the fire, and winning the NBA Championship.
