Wait til next year

Cavs forward LeBron James left the building in a huff.

He didn't talk to the media after the game. He put on his headphones and walked to the bus.

Late in the game, he was upset on the bench during a time out.

He often times blows off the exit interviews with the media. We might not hear from him until media day. Maybe at his bike-a-thon in Akron.

Many national media guys pondered after the game whether he would be fined by the NBA for blowing off the media. I would guess not.

It will fuel speculation that he's not happy. And, God knows, everyone wants to keep him happy. This time next year, he could be close to becoming an unrestricted free agent.

MISS SOME SHOTS - After making 17 3s in Game 4, the Magic banged in 12 on Saturday.

The Cavs kept waiting for the Magic to miss some shots in the Eastern Conference finals. It never happened.

They kept banging in 3-point goals like they were going out of style. Center Dwight Howard had 40 points and 14 rebounds. So, basically, they didn't stop either facet of the Magic's game.

REMOTE CONTROL CAR - Cavs guard Mo Williams was brought to the postgame press conference area after James' exit.

He likened losing in the Eastern Conference finals to being disappointed as a kid on Christmas Day. If you opened 10 presents on Christmas and still the remote control car you were dying for hasn't appeared.

"You’re disappointed," Williams said.

"I guarantee you, I never thought we’d win 66 games this season and be in the Eastern Conference finals. We had a hell of a year. We were confident we were going to the NBA Finals and thought we were going to win it. We thought we had the team to get it done."

CLEAN OUT LOCKERS - The players will be available at 4:15 p.m. on Sunday at Cleveland Clinic Courts. Coach Mike Brown and GM Danny Ferry will meet with the media on Monday.

Next season will be a good one for the Cavs. Not losing much and a chance to gain a lot.
