"Of Cleveland's 26 games, 16 have been played against teams with losing records, and there's a huge disparity by conference as well. Only seven of the Cavs' first 26 games have been against the vastly superior Western Conference, including only one against the five West teams with the best records. Additionally, 15 of the 26 contests have been at home."Hollinger says all that crap means the Cavs have played the league's second-easiest schedule. And he says that next month's seven-game West Coast swing — which includes stops in Sacramento and Phoenix and a tilt against the new, Allen Iverson-led Denver Nuggets — could prove a "huge reality check." Sure, he's smart. But he's bald, too. And anybody that's telling you to bet the Memphis Grizzlies will win more games this season than the Cavs deserves the extra forehead. — Jason Nedley
