What emotion defined this fandom this year?

Excitement! For the first time since 1998, the Cleveland Cavaliers made the NBA Playoffs without LeBron James on the roster. While this may seem like a small thing, for an organization that has long had its success and failure defined by one man, this year was an important step forward.

Why you should join this fandom
