When LeBron announced that he was taking his talents to South Beach this past summer no one could have imagined that this motley crew formally known as the LeBronaires would go on to make history. Most people assumed that at best the Cavs would hover around .500 and put forth a good effort in vying for the 8th seed. Nope, they had their hearts set on making history & they turned dreams into reality. Too bad it was the wrong side of things.
With just one win since Nov. 27, the Cavaliers now own the league’s single-season mark for consecutive losses and have matched the record for overall losses in a row they previously set over 1981-82 and 1982-83. ESPN
Back when LeBron made his decision I was pretty critical of him leaving Cleveland. Not because I was a major fan of him nor the team, but I always felt that his teammates were better than people gave him credit for. After this abysmal display they’ve put forth for the past couple of months, I think he had every right to leave, if only to prevent long-term shoulder & back injuries. Only God & Ms. Cleo know how much longer this streak will last, but if the likes of Kyrie Irving, Jared Sullinger & Kemba Walker decide to stick around for another year there’s a good bet not wanting to go to Cleveland will be one of their deciding factors.
