The all is having Commissioner David Stern hand over the Larry O’Brien trophy in two months and pronounce them world champions in a champagne soaked ceremony.
Only the all will do. Only the all will satisfy their demanding fan base. Only the all will satisfy their demanding owners, who have taken on multi-million dollar luxury tax payments for this precise moment.
While nothing, or falling short of an NBA Title, will force Cleveland, Los Angeles, and Orlando to make wholesale changes this off-season. Right or wrong, fair or not, these are the stakes when playing for a contender.
After missing 23 games following surgery to repair a torn right thumb ligament, O'Neal has come back rested and ready to fulfill his goal of winning a championship with James. The 7-foot-1 center has returned in incredible shape, saying he spent the down time "eating right, swimming, working out, doing what I do. It's all about the mission."
Cavaliers fans have designed and purchased a billboard encouraging LeBron James to remain with Cleveland.
Glen Infante's website, realcavsfans.com has more than 7 thousand loyal followers.
"There's a campaign where New Yorkers were gathering money to buy LeBron a gift when he arrives in New York And a lot of members were real angry about that and we wanted to respond to that," said Infante.

In the end it took a full fifty spots to showcase the shittiest skin art in the L.
"There's a lot that goes on with being a professional athlete other than just basketball," he said. "I think everyone in the USA knows what type of commitment these guys have made, including myself, since 2003. I'm not trying to bash Jerry or anything like that because he's a good guy and I respect him. [But] I don't respect that [statement] because of the commitment we've all given to the USA."
Today, they’re the league laughingstock. Next season, they could be laughing.
"That's my gut. They're doing everything they can to build him a championship. His biggest thing is winning a ring. I think his best chance to win a ring is probably where he's at."
Why leave a championship contender for an organization years away from contending?
This is the question Kobe Bryant and LeBron James will face if either leaves the Los Angeles Lakers and Cleveland Cavaliers as an unrestricted free agent this summer to sign with the dysfunctional New York Knicks.
