If the NBA season was a race, it'd be a marathon, not a sprint. And, right now, the Cavs are at the 24.5-mile mark of that marathon and they're walking. They're walking very, very slowly. Part of that is because they're banged up. But, the other reason is that they just don't have the pieces in place right now to compete with anyone except the Bobcats and Wizards. They're not going to quit as a result of either of those things. But, we're warning you: The end of their marathon isn't going to look very pretty.—Chris Yuscavage
