The Cleveland Cavaliers could have started the 2017 NBA Playoffs better in a lot of ways, but they got the win. Whenever you can win in the playoffs, that's obviously all that matters. However, we break things down further than that because we don't know what else to do.

Dave Sterling had to spike his latest HSB podcast because of some reason or another. That's the bad news. The good news is that Dave and Craig were able to catch up and do a podcast on Good Friday. We hope this podcast finds you well on this holiday weekend and if you need a distraction from family or a way to get from point A to point B, there's only one tiny curse word in this one by Dave way close to the end.

Craig used to be a Browns-first kind of Cleveland sports fan. Now, considering the current status of all three teams it's absolutely impossible to even pretend the Browns are top of mind. For the longest time, Craig would have made the case that the Browns were most likely to achieve success. Now, that antiquated position looks like a joke.

We discuss all three teams considering their current statuses and what it means for their place in the Cleveland sports zeitgeist.
