I'm basking in the comments over on ESPN; here's my favourite:
And if you think Lebron is the only guy on the Cavs...I will give you Exibit A, which is the most recent West coast trip...Mo averaged over 30 for those 7 games.
Hmmm. Seven-game roadtrip? Does that include some NBA Cares games against local girl-scout troupes? And 30? What, points? Perhaps he meant minutes? For the record, the Cavs haven't had a roadtrip longer than 4 games all season, and Mo hasn't even sniffed 30 ppg over any 7-game stretch all year. In fact, he's only topped 30 points twice this season; it's kinda hard to average a total you don't even reach. On their recent four-game West trip, he did manage to average a nice, respectable 22.
But you know by now, Cleveland gots dat new math goings on over there. I knew I smelled delusion when I saw that comment, I had to go look it up. Nice lie nice try Rufus.
Hey Cavs, don't blame Stern, blame LeBron for taking all those shots away from Mo the other night versus the Knicks. 9 points on 3-12 shooting with 2 assists in the world's greatest arena is an All-Star? Folks, no one wants to risk seeing that kind of performance in Phoenix. Certainly not grand-chancellor Dave.
The Bucks of course needed to fill minutes lost due to the injured Michael Redd, and Keith Bogans can...blah blah blah blah blaaah. My apologies Buck fans, I don't mean to be rude; maybe I should be more interested in who earns the right to get beat up by the Celtics/Magic/Cavawailers in the first round, but right now my ADD is kicking in.
