Wow, I Didn’t Think I’d Care About That

I won’t lie, I only got through the first minute of the video Chappy posted earlier. I wasn’t going to say anything, and it wasn’t that boring, I just don’t care about the Cavs. OR SO I THOUGHT. Tonight, when ESPN decided to pull a pretty unprecedented move and cut away from the Lakers-Knicks – it was a blowout, I know, but still… they rarely do that – but I found myself pretty happy for Cleveland. I really didn’t care one way or the other whether the streak kept going or it stopped. You never want to wish the piling on of more losing to an already worn down beaten team. But at the same time, it’s history. But nonetheless, the Cavs pulled it out tonight against the Clippers and I found myself feeling pretty good for the guys who’ve stuck it out over there. They’ve had a few legitimate injuries, like Anderson Varejao, but for the most part, no one’s really sandbagging and sitting out games. I think I speak for all of Doin Work when I say Antawn Jamison deserves a lot of respect for this season. Between his Golden State Warrior roots and Cali4Dre’s fantasy obsession (honestly, I think he’s had him like 8 of the last 10 years), none of us have ever had a bad thing to say about the guy. ….except for flaws in his game maybe. Here’s the Antawn Jamison Fun Fact of the Night: He’s played all 82 games in the season FIVE TIMES. This year he’s played 51 of 54, more than respectable. He’s better than this, and a lot of guys of his stature probably would’ve feigned injury or sulked their way to a trade, but he’s kept his head down and kept grinding. Hopefully a contender will snatch him up and reward him with some relevant basketball again.

Cleveland’s U-Turn

Looks like Cavs fans are finally turning the page after seeing their team’s current record breaking losing streak hit 26. I guess even they now realize that Lebron never really had a team that was worthy of his talents. It’s good to see that they are at least fond of the times they had with him. Maybe now, Lebron won’t get his ass kicked when he goes home to visit his family and friends. I loved the Delonte part.
