Cleveland wakes up the this morning basketball champions of the world. While I’m not a native Clevelander, I’ve lived here long enough to understand the pain and suffering of my town. I’ve been here for the Indians in ‘95 and ‘97, the return and floundering of the Browns, the Cavs in ‘07, the Decision, the Return, and last year’s (valiant but still a) defeat. And last night I celebrated with my family and cried tears of joy as I watched the Cavs complete what most thought was not possible — not only beating the defending champs and the team who won more regular-season games than any other in history, but also doing so after being down 3-1 and having to win two on their home floor.
So proud to hail from The Land. As for my kids, I hope they grow up thinking this is how it’s supposed to be. Because no town deserves this more than mine.
Nothing else to say today. I’ll be back tomorrow with my thoughts on how Lebron shows the importance of boomerang employees to your organization.
