CLEVELAND -- Maybe somebody is trying to teach me to be less cynical.

For the second year in a row, I went to a team's training camp and listened to all the usual preseason optimism about how everybody was going to have a great year and things would be dandy. And for the second year in a row, I had to contain my skepticism until I saw it all work out with the team in question holding up the Larry O'Brien trophy. (Side memo to the league's other 29 teams: I'm now accepting bids to cover training camps this fall.)
