Can’t help it. Born at Alta Bates, grew up on the Oakland/Berkeley line, always wanted Nate Thurmond to be better than Bill Russell and Wilt Chamberlain, and never got over the unfairness that he wasn’t. And this team is such a joy to watch.
So for all that I’d wish Cleveland well against almost any other team…
