In the chat with Becky we posted the other night, we mentioned to her that we didn’t really have that passion for the Cavaliers we’d had in years past, ie our entire life.
“Why?”, she asked, and perhaps you asked, too.
Well, if you haven’t been reading all season, we have a really hard time getting behind a group of players that flat out don’t care, and if you think the Cavaliers care after watching them get rolled at home by the Nets last night, you’re watching a different team than we are.
They had a chance to close out the series and start resting for the Eastern Conference Finals, and what did they do? Wait, we already said what they did – see what they do to us?
What else can we say that we haven’t said all season? What else can we type? How many ways can we say it? If they don’t care, how can we? We feel bad, because we know our parents are planning to watch this garbage on Tivo, and we feel like we should call and warn them.
We can’t wait to see how Coach Mike and the Gang justify this one. Which cliches that make it seem like not a big deal can they roll out this time?
Ambivalence, thy name is the NBA.
(For his own reasons, Bill Simmons is starting to hate the league, as well.
We don’t hate the game itself, we just hate NOT FREAKING TRYING. BTW, the game isn’t even over yet – oh look, LeBron just pulled a Vince Carter on his ankle. Nice.)
