Cavaliers worthy of attention Published: Friday, April 16, 2004 When it comes to basketball, I prefer college to professional. And as the lone Duke fan on campus, I have had moments where I've been spoiled by great play and witnessed championships.
But I have also experienced seasons cut too short. Thanks for the traveling violation - well I guess you could call it a fall - at the end of regulation in the NCAAs, Trajan Langdon. And thanks for the missed free throws against Indiana, Jay Williams.
But that's neither here nor there. Maybe I'm a little bitter, but all I'm trying to say is I feel your pain, Cleveland Cavalier fans.
At the same time, I don't feel your pain, either. While I have witnessed the lackluster squads the Cavs have fielded since the days of Mark Price, Brad Daugherty, "Hot Rod" Williams and Larry Nance, I haven't felt the pain of a Michael Jordan jumper at the buzzer like the fans of Cleveland.
But I did, however, feel an inkling of pain this season when the Cavs missed the playoffs. There isn't one particular team I have followed in the NBA, but I can honestly say I followed and rooted for the Cavs this season.
