Despite James' Late Airballed Three, Cavs Win



GOLDEN STATE - OK, so last night's game winner was pretty sweet, but we know LeBron would be getting killed today by fans wondering why he A) almost had worse clock management on the last play than Romeo Crennel; B) Still thinks the most dominant penetrator in the league should ever shoot a 19-footer with a game on the line; C) is ever going 10 of 16 from the free throw line. By the way, ever since Brian Windhorst wrote his column about Bron eclipsing 80% from the stripe, he's shooting 71%. At least it's not as bad as his three-point shooting, which is 116th out of a possible 122 (even though he's taken more threes than 91 others).

Also, Mo Williams had another horrible shooting night last night. In his last four games, he's had three clunkers. When he's on, the Cavaliers are almost unbeatable; but when he's off, the Cavaliers look more extremely vulnerable - (they struggled to get by a 13-win team on the road without their top scorer).

Obviously it's a good sign that the Cavs are winning games in which they're not playing well on the road. And if LeBron can start looking like Kobe at the end of games like he did last night, they're in good shape. But we're starting to think this Cavalier team is a little more mortal than they had looked in the first 2 months of the season.

The Cavs Are My Favorite Team.

What a shot last night. But you're right on about this team not playing like they were, especially before Delonte and Z went down. I could now see them losing to Orlando

Great site guys. Lots of humor which you don't see elsewhere.

See, this is why I go to Waitingfornextyear. Why do you guys have to rip the King after a game winner? Can't you just be happy?

let's not forget that the cavs are without there 2nd and 4th best players right now. When Z and Delonte are back I'm confident this team will look like they did in the early part of the season.

Tim, how does that help us make fun of the Cavs? Are you actually rooting for them?

Way to link to the worst quality video ever for the LBJ game winner. Your kid sister could have made a better video with a crayon.
