In case you weren’t reminded after the Derek Anderson/laughing controversy, the Cavs showed us last night that fans care more about these games than the players do. These past six months make the whole idea of following sports feel silly, doesn’t it? This used to be fun.
I don’t even know if there’s any basketball analysis to be done. The Cavaliers showed no heart, no effort and absolutely zero toughness on Thursday night. They were absolutely terrible.
Does this game get added to the list? The Shot, the Fumble, The Drive, The Decision and The Return? Really, how much worse could it have been? The Cavs lost by 28 points!! Was this not the biggest game of the year?
The Heat players tried. They looked like they gave a shit. They looked like they didn’t want to lose this game for LeBron (who played and conducted himself quite well). The Miami Heat played like this game mattered.
The Cavs players? Well, they lost by 28 points. The Heat got whatever they wanted offensively. Not one Cavalier offered any resistance. No hard fouls. No getting in anybody’s face. No trash talking or chippiness. No one paid for going inside.
Bah. This sucks. Sports are supposed to be fun. The players are supposed to give a shit. Isn’t that the trade off? We give you millions of dollars, you at least pretend to give a shit. Get off my lawn. Bah humbug.
CavsFans: Words don’t express my feelings so I won’t even try. Know this:There’s nothing U are feeling that I’m not. The best B-Ball player ever once said: “My pain was my motivation”….And so it will be with us…
