A record-breaking humiliation

     Over the week, the Cavaliers suffered an embarrassing 112-57 loss against the Lakers on national television. This sets two Cavalier records: one for the least amount of points scored in a game, and another for the biggest loss in history.

     Needless to say, it was a humiliation for the team, the franchise, and all the Cavs fans out there. It also really brought attention to the fact that the Cavaliers are now the worst team in the league. Their 8-30 record is the lowest in the NBA, and have lost 19 of their last 20.

     There were multiple tweets from players about the night, and I’d love to link them, but they all (understandably) have foul language in them. Mo Williams, the Cavs’ point guard, said that he “can’t even show his face in Cleve.” Just as interesting is a Lebron James tweet, perhaps deriding the franchise after their massive loss. In it, he talks about karma, seemingly directing his statement towards Dan Gilbert rather than the whole Cavs team. While I’d love to take any chance to rag on LBJ, I must say that I seriously doubt his tweet is in anyway directed to the team, but rather the front office of the organization.

     And being a disheartened Cavaliers fan coming off of  a 55 point loss, I am in no mood to defend the owners of the franchise. It was their poor decisions in the past seven years that has got us to where we are today.

    Yes. HUMILIATION is the word for this. Indeed. What decisions have them made over the last 7 years? I guess I know enough to be dangerous, so I don’t really know what decisions they have made…

      Instead of saving money and cap space on getting another notable good player to help Lebron out, they settled for “quick fixes” that may look good on paper, but didn’t help in the long run.
