NBA Postcards: Greetings from Cleveland, Ohio and Washington, D.C.

I mentioned that my Postcards would be released as pairs in no particular order. That said I've found a meaning for each pairing, whether its sharing a mascot, sharing an arena or in this instance some Playoff history. The Washington Wizards offered LeBron James his first playoff rivalry, meeting several times in hotly contested First round matchups in his early days with the Cleveland Cavaliers.

That rivalry dissolved long time ago, the Wizards Big 3 of Gilbert Arenas, Caron Butler and Antawn Jamison parting ways and LeBron moving on to his own triumvirate in Miami. Both teams are currently headlined by #1 pick Point Guards, John Wall leading Washington and Cleveland commanded by Kyrie Irving.
