Who is the hero? Is it Ray or is it Rajon? Or do they split it? Does it matter? Not for Boston. Not after they were able to split the first two games on the road with the Lakers. Read the rest of this entry »

Sad. Pathetic. Embarrassing. Woeful. That was the Cavaliers last night, especially in the last minute of the ball-game. They looked so clearly the weaker team. They didn’t even put as much of a fight up as Miami did, and they went whimpering into the night. Read the rest of this entry »

First, a note to those who are ripping LeBron in northeast Ohio: shut up. Did he play poorly? Definitely. Did he lose a bit of aggression? It appears to be the case. But this doesn’t make sense. The last 7 years have been the best Cleveland basketball has ever seen and the worst thing that could happen is for LeBron to leave. So your response is? Booing and labeling him as the source of your losing when a lot of the responsibility lies on his teammates for not defending or making shots. Could he have played better?

Okay, so I watched the Cavaliers and Bulls game and had a couple thoughts, actually a lot of thoughts, not all of which is directly related to the actual play of the game. I could have just done a list of random thoughts but I thought it might be better if I explained my thoughts as to leave no confusion about exactly what I am saying. Read the rest of this entry »


A Bunch of Chicken Littles

November 4, 2009

So, being a basketball fan in Northeast Ohio on a night not named Wednesday or Friday, the only basketball on is the Cavaliers. Seeing as how it was also voting day, I couldn’t catch all of the game, however, I have some feelings on what I did see. Read the rest of this entry »
