LeBron James Is Good At Basketball

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.

Also, Utah beat Denver last night. Their series is tied at 1-1. Four games are scheduled for tonight, and I guess those guys will go out and get sandwiches afterward, because basketball is hard.
