Now that the Cleveland Cavaliers have "secured" the longest losing streak in NBA history,and now that Byron Scott has probably cursed them silly,the Cavs need to focus on avoiding another,even more painful,distinction: The worst season record of all-time. The Dallas Mavericks went 11-71 in 92-93,and the Philadelphia 76ers went 9-73 in 72-73. As much as the Cavaliers probably wish they could just end the season right now,they have to face the challenge of getting,AT LEAST,two more victories to avoid that shameful dishonour cuurently held by the 72-73 76ers. Man,the "Villian" dumped the Cavs,and they're enduring their own version of "9-11".

That fan in Detroit who,obviously,had an expensive seat close to the Heat bench,was an absolute,total IDIOT for being STOOPID enough to say something to LeBron James about his mother Gloria. Security should have let LeBron,and few other members of the Heat "escort" him to the Heat locker room to "discuss" the matter some more. It's amazing what some people will try to get away with saying when they think they're in the ideal environment to be able to do it without fear of repercussions. What the dude needed was a busted nose,a busted lip,and a size twenty shoe up his azz.

Then the COWARD wouldn't even give his name because he knew if his name got out that LeBron had the financial power to ruin the guy's name by making sure his name and comments were all over the internet and other media outlets. Smart thinking,COWARD!! Too bad you weren't SMART enough to keep your damn mouth shut when you decided to say something to LeBron about his mother. Where you hoping that he would kick your ass right there front of everybody so that you could become an instant millionaire?! What a dumbazz.

See,Cleveland!!!!!! You guys don't have to let LeBron being gone seem like the end of the world! And ya'll proved it last night! You guys might as well accept the fact that he is gone,and he's probably NEVER coming back to play for the Cavs! Don't let the name of LeBron,and the thought of LeBron,and the memories of playing with LeBron cause ya'll to forget that you guys are grown azz men getting paid more the job of president of the United States,and you've got fans who have faithfully stuck by ya'll though all of this losing. So stop actin' like a bunch of damn "Bad Luck Shleprocks" and move on!!!!

If the league and the owners want to make salary changes in the future,when the coming labor talks start,the owners and the league have to honour all current contracts that have been signed. PERIOD. That's just the way business works. If any changes are to be made to player's pay,it should be "phased" in as new contracts are signed in the coming years. PERIOD.

Yeah,I saw that spectacular reverse lay-up by the Wizard's Nick Young against the Mavericks last night. But what I don't understand is WHY IN THE HELL would a professional basketball player come to a game with his hair looking like he's some BROKE,baggy pants,baseball cap turned sideways,thug from the housing projects!! I just don't understand what's going through the minds of some of these athltetes!

Wow,I wonder if Richard Hamilton still feels like tellin' the Piston's coach off in front of everyone was the right thing to do. I wonder if he's been feeling like a little "south-beeyotch" while sitting on the bench all of this time. When you are an EMPLOYEE of a business,it doesn't matter how long you've been there,it doesn't matter how good you THINK you are,you don't disrespect the coaches,managers,or the owners by flying into some stupid verbal tirade. And Ben Wallace said he thinks benching Hamilton was a BAD IDEA. Yeah,I guess he WOULD know about "bad ideas". Remember the "bad idea" that started the "Malace in the Palace" when you shoved Ron Artest over a foul that wasn't even a very hard foul??!! BAD IDEA!!

O.k.,so WHO'S this year's NBA MVP?! Well,let's start with should the reigning two-time MVP,LeBron James be rewarded with a third consecutive MVP award. And set aside all of the b.s. feelings you might have about how "the Decision" when down,or how James seems to have willingly embraced the villian role in the wake of his departure from the Cavs. Look at the total collapse of the Cavaliers without their "messiah". Look at how James(even though he's teamed up with one of the top scorers in the league,and another player who was one of the top scorers in the league when he was in Toronto),is STILL one of the top scorers in the league,he's STILL one of the best passers and defenders in the league,and the Miami Heat are the hottest ticket in the NBA right now. So much so that the Heat have already announced that Heat ticket prices will be going UP next year. So,regardless how you feel about him,and regardless if Dwanye Wade's pride would be hurt a little by it,there's no doubt about it; LeBron James is the year's NBA MVP.

I'd like to dedicate this song to Dan Gilbert who has been suffering from some chronic diarrhea problems recently.

Remember the t.v. show "the six million dollar man" with Lee Majors?! Well there's a new "six million dollar man" in town. As a matter of fact,he's taking his talents(what's left of them)to South Beach. Mike Bibby has decided to forfeit SIX MILLION DOLLARS of his current contract in order to join the Miami Heat. If the Miami Heat don't win the NBA championship this year,or at least the eastern conference championship this year,what LeBron said about Karma will be unfortunately true: She IS a BITCH. And she rode LeBron's back from Cleveland to South Beach,if they flop in the playoffs the way the Cavs did the last three years.

Hey,Jim Rome and Jay Mohr!,listen to THIS!!: Derrick Rose sent LeBron James a text saying "I just wanted to kill all of the rumors that I don't want to play with you. I want to play with you. I just want to win." You gotta' be FREAKIN' KIDDIN' me!!!! A grwon man tellin' another grown man that he wants him to play on his team,but he does it through a TEXT!!!,instead of calling him,or talking to him face to face!! A FREAKIN' TEXT??!!! That's the kind of stuff that little kids do when they find out someone at grade school likes them!! I mean,for him to tell James how he felt about him playing there via a text is like a man telling a woman "I want to have sex with you,but don't take off anything but your shoes!"

Both share blame, but LoserLeBron quit on us last year in the playoffs and quit again in the offseason. His loss WITHOUT compensation, plus injuries, sank the Cavs like a stone.

They will be good again, but he will always be a quitter, and a loser. I don't blame Gilbert for his outburst at Loser last year, most Cavs fans felt that way.
