Making lemonade out of cancelled plans to Chicago, Dan, Alex and I went downtown for the Cav’s Championship parade last Wednesday. Oddly enough, we found traffic in Cleveland to be manageable, parked on the street for free, and walked a dozen blocks to Mall B where the rally was scheduled. It was a beautiful day, although I am not sure what sort of adverse weather could have dampened the spirits of those who came to witness and celebrate the end of 'The Drought.'
Some might debate if Lebron is the best player of this generation, but he was the unquestioned MVP of the finals, leading the series in average points, rebounds, assists, steals and blocks. It was remarkable how he mentioned himself only in relation to the importance of the contributions of others. He epitomized leadership, humility and teamwork.
The crowds will be massive.
