<quoted text> Your just a fool, you keep blaming AV for the loss and do you actually expect LeBron to score 50 points every game, I just cant wait til he gets injured, then you can blame it on that reason. The Cavs have been playing a very weak schedule in the last eight games and should have won everygame, they proved they cannot beat teams with winning records except for a few teams like San Antonio, Boston will win it all against the Lakers in the finals. You also proved another point with your moronic rambling, the Cavs went to the finals last year, gee I wonder who was on the team then? your just stupid.
I can't resist. If you are going to call someone stupid...
It should read, "You're just stupid", not "your just stupid."
Kind of like the pot calling the kettle black.

Yeah, I was going to point that out, too, Ohio Sports "Genius." For a guy who calls himself a genius and uses the word "you're" as much as you do (several times in your last few posts), you probably ought to at least know how to spell the word. Please stop calling yourself genius. Actually, while you're at it, why don't you just stop posting altogether? You haven't made any good points at all today, and if you keep it up, you will only encourage ESJ to leave some post telling us all about the IQ test he took in third grade and how he actually is a real genius. Please spare us.

Start spreading the news
I'm leaving after this contract
I want to be a part of it, New York, New York
These vagabond shoes
Are longing to stray
And make a brand new start of it
New York, New York
I want to wake up in the city that never sleeps
To find I'm king of the hill, top of the heap
These little town blues
Are melting away
I'll make a brand new start of it
In old New York
If I can make it there
I'll make it anywhere
It's up to you, New York, New York.

Thanks for adding that "As sung by LeBron James" line at the end. Your post was so subtle, it was hard to figure out what point you were trying to get across. You must also be a genius.

It must feel very fulfilling to leave inflamatory posts on a fan board for the sole purpose of being an a-hole and riling people up. Well done.

Let me ask you this: Does anyone like you?

F*ck you. acting like a child. I'm sick of all you wanna be's in here bad mouthing people. The best Barkeley (or your dumb a$$) can say is that we really don't know what we have until all are healthy and they have at least a month or so to play together before any judgement can be made. You are the same as Barkeley, didn't do a whole bunch in your career but now spout off every chance you get about intelligent you are. Talk to me in a month. If I'm wrong I'll admit it. If you are, get the f*ck off this board.
Very mature response. This is a public board. Your comments are hateful and board line. Now you want to control what people are saying. Start your own website then.

Talk to you in a month about what? Frankly I think the Cavs will be in the Eastern Conference finals. Your comments are a confused jumble of none sense and are irrationally charged with hate. You're a bore and boring. But you can say what ever you want here. This is just basketball dude. We are not debating Iraq. Chill.

I love when dudes start dropping their credentials on message boards as evidence that they are smarter than the rest of us. "Four years of small Ohio college and coach locally." Good for you, ESJ. Puff out that chest. You're my hero.
Problem is, you just gave away your real identity. Now that you've told us you coach locally, all we have to do is figure out which junior high girls' team from the east side is at the bottom of its league's standings, confirm that the coach's name is Joe, and we've found you. You will soon be revealed.
Your "Barkley was right" comment is a joke. Barkley says what he says without thinking at all and just to be controversial. What he was saying is that the Cavs are in trouble BECAUSE ALL TEAMS HAVE TO DO TO STOP THEM IS STOP LEBRON. Problem is, uh, no one has figured out how to do that yet...
The Cavs will be fine, and we will soon know all of the real details about ESJ's pathetic life. I can't wait.
GO CAVS!
I lied about the college and coaching thing. I'm ashamed. You guys sound like Bevis and Butthead. Relax man.

I'll answer your last question with a question. You think that the Cavs made the Finals last year because of Gooden and Hughes? They made it to the Finals because of Lebron. He is still here. But Z, Gibson, Pavlovic, and AV were all 100% healthy then too.
I also never said that I expect Lebron to score 50 a night. If you again READ, you will see that i pointed out that his 50 in addition to Jones' night overcame all the injuries including Z's.
Maybe I should post something, then re-post it with a "dumbed down" version so you can understand.
I'm down with you on this one brother! I like the "dumb down" version idea.

That's the best you've got?!

Dude, I don't care whether you lied or not. You made yourself sound stupid when you gave in to the apparent feeling of compulsion to brag about your "small college" and "local coaching," as if that would add some credence to what you were saying and cause everyone else on the board to cower before your grandeur and wisdom. Spare us the smoke-blowing and just share your opinions. Lots of people have played basketball, and some others have coached, too. And despite the most common retort of all on this board, that someone else "knows nothing about the game," most of the people who spend the time posting here do have a pretty good idea of how the game is played. So please don't tell us how great you are from now on. You aren't impressing anyone. As for your opinions, I would love to hear a response to the point I made about Barkley. The premise that teams will merely need to stop LeBron to put the Cavs in trouble is laughable, as Kenny Smith pointed out by referring to Detroit mere seconds after Charles made his comment.

So, whatcha got, ESJ? Let's hear a substantive response. Let's hear you defend your silly argument with some sound reasoning. And please talk a little more about the Cavs and a little more about yourself.

Sincerely,

Beavis

You guys are funny, freaking out over ever little bump in the road. The team needs time to get to know each other and the plays.....not gonna happen in a few games. As suggested before, take a deep breath and relax, we have the best player in the NBA and a nice supporting cast. The playoffs will be the true test of this team, not relatively meaningless games against hapless foes. GO CAVS!!!!!!!!!
Excellent comment. Today an intelligent post differentiates itself significantly from the petty bickering, the fan baiting, and the "he's leaving, he's leaving" idiocy. This fan gets the feeling watching this team that what we're seeing is a work in progress. I give it another two weeks and I think we'll see the beginning of a playoff propulsion.

That's exactly what I've been preaching since the trade. The Cavs will at least get to the conference finals this year as long as Z comes back and either Sasha or Gibson get back in the lineup (preferably Gibson).

I'll say this, the message board intelligence level definitely increased as the day went on today. It is refreshing to see that there are intelligent Cavs fans out there. Although they are severely out-numbered on here. ESJ, you took some shots today, but it was all in good fun! How's your Bingo Ball anyway?

Go Cavs!

Dear Beavis,

I think your too invested in this blog and too invested in the success of others (basketball players). I'll I said was Barkely was right and you go off like a complete idiot. Have a good night.

I'm not so sure some of these people are about "good fun." Some of them are way too invested in this blog and seem to be over compensation, if you know what I mean, The Bingo Ball was a lie too. But I enjoy your comments. I got bogged down with a couple of kids who obviously don't have parental permission to be online.

When Z and Gibson return this is a championship level team for sure. No one seems unbeatable. I am concerned about Wally's D.
