LeBron's Easy Road to the Eastern Finals
April 23, 2007 9:57pm CST
If it can't get better enough for LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers, this year's playoffs match-ups have given them a very easy road to the Eastern Conference Finals. Their first round opponents: the Washington Wizards. Sure, the Wizards gave the Cavaliers a hard time last year with James and Gilbert Arenas trading gamebreakers late in the game, but it's a whole new story this year. Both Arenas and Caron Butler (the only All-Star players on their team this year) are out for the post-season with injuries, and needless to say, this depletes the Wizards by a lot. Their next round opponents would either be the New Jersey Nets or the Toronto Raptors, both of which are arguably *not* in championship form. So given that easy road from where they are now, do you think LeBron can make history and get to his first ever Conference Finals appearance?
