I'm gonna weigh in on the Cavs real quick.

Lots of rumors about trading for Amare Stoudemire, Andre Igoudala, Troy Murphy or Antawn Jamison. Here's my take. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

I said the same thing last year, as the Cavs were in first place and winning with authority, but the difference between last year and this year is that we are 12 deep this year, as opposed to 6 or 7 deep last year.

The big guys are deep...Hickson and Shaq starting, then the best 6th man in the league, Anderson Varejao and the Large Lithuanian coming off the bench. Add in Leon Powe after the all star break and you are in great shape with the mixture of size, energy and mid range shooting in the league.

Come out to the perimeter and there is no drop off. Last year, Mo Williams was the achilles heel. He didn't produce in the playofffs and we collapsed. This year, with the additions of length and defense in Jamario Moon and Anthony Parker, there is no fall off if Mo doesn't produce (They're on an 11 game win streak without him. Add in Delonte West, Daniel Gibson and the surprise of the year, Jawad Williams, and you have every complementary piece you need to bring the ring to the king and to Cleveland this year.

That's my prediction, as long as LeBron is healthy, they are far more talented and deep than any team in the East and have defeated the Lakers twice this year. I just not the Cavs to try to win the title in the third week of June so that we will be back from Kenya to party in the streets of CLE.

So, Cavs fans...trade or no trade? Ring or no ring?
