Anyone who thought that this team was going to be any good this year was either blind, naive, or handicapped. I know that I didn't. I may not have seen THIS coming, but I knew that they were lottery bound. And I knew that after five years of embarrassing opponents with stupid dancing and gestures, payback was a-comin'. Holy shit did it ever come.
But I pressed on. Over the last five years, you would not find a more interesting game on the NBA schedule than a Cavs/Lakers game. Eventhough the two teams are polar opposites now, I checked in on it on Tuesday night (after finishing the sensational premiere episode of Lights Out). There was 4 minutes and change left in the third quarter and the Cavs were getting slightly beaten 78-31. The Cavs had 31 points after 31 minutes of basketball. I watched the rest of the third quarter partly laughing at how bad this team is but more depressed at what they used to be and how it's all over (and will remaing "over" for a few years). The final was 112-57. And it wasn't even THAT close. When your team gets DRILLED that badly, normally I just shrug it off. But look who's back with his villainous smack talk.
