CLEVELAND -- The Knicks won't be witnesses to the Cavaliers' championship ring ceremony or banner being raised to the rafters.
The world has changed quite a bit since the Cleveland Indians last won the World Series in 1948. Some countries no longer exist, while some have been created.

CLEVELAND -- The Knicks opened the NBA season playing in front of a loud crowd and a national television audience on Tuesday night, but they did nothing to silence the fans or prove they could compete with the NBA champs.
CLEVELAND -- After only two days to prep in the Arizona Fall League, Kyle Schwarber was greenlighted by the Cubs for the World Series, and Joe Maddon didn't hesitate to bat him fifth as the DH for Tuesday's Game 1 at Progressive Field.
BOSTON -- It's time to get real for the Nets. Since February, they've undergone a makeover worthy of a reality series from new GM Sean Marks to new coach Kenny Atkinson to 10 new players, including Jeremy Lin in the role of starting point guard partnering with longtime franchise center Brook Lopez.
In the past few years there have been several teams that have won championships on the strength of their defenses. The Broncos did it last season. The Seahawks did it two years before that.
The Cleveland Indians have quite the World Series drought going with their last win coming in 1948, but it's got nothing on the Cubs' century-long stretch. Sure, 1948 was a while ago, but the country experienced two World Wars and a Depression between then and the last Cubs' win.

The Yankees have been taking guff since their new stadium opened in 2009 over the many seats behind home plate that stubbornly remain human-free when viewed from the centerfield camera.
CLEVELAND -- By now, the scouting report on Jon Lester hardly is the stuff of WikiLeaks. Everybody knows that he is supremely gifted when throwing baseballs at home plate, and almost helpless when throwing them anywhere else.
