The NBA claims it has the best fans in sports. It definitely has the most adorable ones. Thanks to a letter found on imgur, we now know the secret to beating the Cleveland Cavaliers. The holder of this secret is an eight-year-old boy and Atlanta Hawks fan, Eli. The letter in the picture above reads as follows:
Dear Coach Bud,
My name is Eli. I’m 8 and I love the Hawks. I checked out “Kings of the Court: The Cleveland Cavaliers” from my school library. The book says LeBronJames.com has LeBron’s strengths and weaknesses. I wanted you to know this. I hope the weaknesses help you beat the Cavs. Go Hawks!
That. Is. The. Cutest.
No doubt, this letter was created in light of Cleveland’s 109-97 win over the Hawks last month. Clearly, the Hawks need to do a better job of exploiting LeBron’s weaknesses. The good news is the Hawks have time, as they don’t meet the Cavaliers again until April 1. The two teams then meet 11 days later just before the end of the regular season.
But to be fair, lebronjames.com does not actually provide LeBron’s weaknesses.
So, take note, Mike Budenholzer. The road to the NBA Finals will likely go through Cleveland. If you’re going to make it to the NBA Finals, you’ll need to take Eli up on his advice. I hear his hourly rate is affordable.
