We expected the Cavaliers to make the post season and many fully expected the Cavs to make the playoffs as the best team in the NBA. Mission accomplished so far.
But the goal of the season has been to win the NBA Championship. That mission begins now.
The Cavs will open their playoff run against the Chicago Bulls on Saturday.
There is obviously a post season history between the two clubs stretching back to Michael Jordan's reign in the NBA.
The Cavs should dispatch the Bulls quickly. History has taught the franchise that.
