Cavs are overall a better team and would beat them in the playoffs

Better stats. Healthier team. Overall taller. LeBron James

Con

Better stats."
Well, prove it. Still, stats do not determine how well one team can play against another. Anyone can bring their A-game on any given night. You still haven't provided verifiable statistics.

"Healthier team."
Well, prove it. Both teams have most of their starters playing anyhow. You still haven't provided valid evidence for you claims.

"Overall taller."
This doesn't mean too much. For all we know, "overall taller" may be by a couple of inches. Still, this "argument" does not hold up - height advantage does not make a team better than another. Even if Cleveland had a height advantage, you could say that LA has a speed advantage.

"LeBron James."
Bryant, Gasol, Fisher, etc. Make your point.

My opponent really has not substantiated his claims. Thus, I have nothing more to negate.

Hmm. More serious debate then I was looking for for the particular subject. What's your proof that L.A. Is better? Or that Cleveland is worse?

Con

"What's your proof that L.A. is better? Or that Cleveland is worse?"
As Pro and Instigator, it was your burden to affirm the resolution. However, you have provided no prove or evidence for your case.

I urge a Con vote. Thank you.

Cleveland most definitely does NOT have far better players. Nor are they a better team :)
