Bulls big man and Rae Dawn Chong permutation Joakim Noah ran his mouth about how “Cleveland really sucks” is as his team prepared to take on the Cavaliers for Game 2 of their first-round playoff series. Seriously, that was the worst thing he said about the city, and everyone made a big deal about it. That wasn’t any less obvious than saying “Bloggers are fat,” or “Prostitutes aren’t really people.” Anyway, the Bulls got owned last night; LeBron scored 40 and the Cavs won 112-102, taking a 2-0 lead in the series.
“They were telling me I can’t make jump shots,” James said. “They asked me to shoot a jumper so I did that. Over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over again.”
James scored 40 points—15 in a tour-de-force fourth quarter—as the Cavaliers, fueled by a rabid home crowd that booed every move by Noah…
To his credit [I guess], Noah didn’t back down from his comments.
“You like it? You think Cleveland’s cool? I never heard anybody say I’m going to Cleveland on vacation. What’s so good about Cleveland?” –Y! Sports.
My wife’s family took a vacation in Cleveland once. They had their car stolen. But seriously, I’m from Ohio and I wouldn’t go anywhere past Berea toward that hole. Over 1,000 people move out of Cleveland every month. I assume that number is so low because there are only so many Uhauls to go around.
