SCOUTING REPORTS

GET READY, CLEVELAND

After the Drive and the Catch, the Fumble and the Decision, 51 years of sports futility on the shores of Lake Erie will come to an end next June. Yes, the four heavyweights in the Western Conference will beg to differ. But by the time Oklahoma City, Golden State, the L.A. Clippers and San Antonio finish throwing haymakers at one another, a rested, relaxed and ridiculously talented Cavaliers team will be waiting to finish off OKC in the Finals. There is no stopping Cleveland now.
