The Cleveland Cavaliers might be the most dissatisfied, disappointing team ever to be in the top seed of the Eastern Conference. No matter how good their record is, they can’t seem to put together truly dominant basketball, or ever seem happy about the way they’re playing.

Outside of celebrity athlete context, subtweets are often directed towards exes, with sentiments like, “I’m happier now than I ever was with you.” It’s petty, but preferable to directly mentioning the subject, which demands a response that will inevitably lead to a Twitter fight (the second-least dignified of all fights, with Facebook comments holding the top spot).
