07:27 AM ET 02.12 | Between the NFL and NBA franchises, these are dark days on the pro sports scene for Cleveland, even if, at times, Cavs fans were daring to dream of a King. Within months of LeBron James leaving for the Miami Heat as a free agent, there was a belief, fostered within James' inner-circle of Cleveland-based agents and marketers, that the planet's best player could be recruited back in summer of 2014. Through mismanagement and personnel miscalculations, the Cavaliers have made it increasingly improbable that James foresees the storybook ending in Cleveland. ... Three and a half years ago, the Cavaliers lost LeBron James, turned the franchise over to Chris Grant, and now they find themselves still far, far from contention. The NBA's draft lottery is coming again this spring.

The Cavs have never been a contender in anything. Not really.

I'd probably move.

I guess when they were in the finals and favorites and had the best records in the league didn't count huh? The Knicks have been far worse for far longer but keep hoping.

Duh! Time to move on and have a better plan. Start surrounding the team w/ more talents. You're already losing another young star.

No one really expected lebron to go back did they? That bridge was burned to a crisp. It sucks for Cleveland fans , but they need to focus on a future without lebron and with young talent and give up on focusing on the title contenders of the past with lebron.

No.

Unless, you really think he would and the Cavs would set an NBA record for wins in a season.
