Scouting report: Cavaliers vs. Pistons
LeBron James has validated his career in some people's eyes because he has now won a playoff series. The critics said that James can't be Michael Jordan until he wins in the playoffs.
How quickly people forget that Jordan went 1-9 in his first 10 playoff games. In a second-round series with the Eastern Conference defending champion Detroit Pistons, expect James to catch up to Jordan's loss totals before he approaches Jordan's ring totals.
