"That game was fixed! They were using a freakin' ladder, for God's sakes!"
-Krusty the Clown

Lakers 112, Cavaliers 57

Where do we start with this one...

-Fewest points scored by the Cavs in franchise history.
-3rd-largest margin of victory in Lakers history.
-Lakers franchise record for fewest points allowed in the shot clock era.

Man, who knew the loss of one player could cause so much damage to a team? Who knew that Anderson Varejao made such a difference?

So things can only get better from here for the Cavs, right? Right?

I don't know what's more messed up: the score or Lebron kicking dirt in Cleveland's face (sports.espn.go.com). Is he really trying to be a villain and piss fans off or does he simply not get it as far as to who burned whom when he left the Cavs in such an ugly, public matter?

LeBron has stated this weekend is going full heel for the rest of the year. I don't blame him, its obvious thats what the fans and media wants. Its also a fact that the Cavs need him more then he needed them. It might also have to do with the Cavs changing hotels, so they didn't stay at the same place as the Heat this weekend. If you are voting for MVP remember this game as why LeBron should get votes.

Every day it's looking even less likely that Dan Gilbert's promise to his fans that the Cavs will win a title before the "so-called Former King" does will prove to be true.

Especially with Miami having won an insane 21 of their last 22 games. And to think they were struggling (by the standards of a contending team) to start the year.

I suppose the only bright spot for Cleveland I can think of is that as bad as they've gotten (and assuming they stay this bad the rest of the year), at least they're liable to get a decent draft pick. Unless they traded it or something. That's assuming the lockout doesn't wipe out the entire 2011-12 season.

If you are the Cavs you have to start moving guys now, right? Even if you are not getting top value for whatever you have you have to do something these guys have a broken spirit.

If Cleveland isn't active before the deadline, they will have to be early in the post-draft period, as the $14.5 million Lebron trade exception expires on July 11th. Couple that with Jameson contract going until 2012 and they could have $30 million in contract/exception to move. Question is do you let it all blow up to get under the cap, or trade for decent/good players that tie you up over the cap and get you in competition for the 7 seed every year, but never a title?

Blow up virtually the entire team and start fresh, if you ask me. Build around a promising draft pick or two and a couple talented guys who want to be there. Dump the rest. Come up with a plan to be competitive again sometime by the end of the decade. The next three or four years are going to be very rough.

I'd like to thank the Cavaliers for making me feel a little better about the Spurs' drubbing of the Timberwolves (5 techs in 20 seconds - man, I love NBA officiating!)

Also, we would be remiss if we didn't acknowledge this tweet from Mo Williams:

I wondered aloud today whether a player ever has or ever should get MVP consideration, not based on what he's done for this CURRENT team, but based on how poorly his FORMER team is doing in his absence. Probably not any precedence for it, but this is about a good a case as any. Even MJ's brief stint playing baseball didn't hurt his team the way LeBron leaving Cleveland has.

Geez! This doesn't sound like a dejected pro athlete, this sounds like a guy that needs to be on suicide watch.

Just another day in Cleveland. Toughen up and get used to it. Mo has nothing to worry about because NOBODY CARES. Why should they after the team has clearly completely given up? Ohio State is my only winning consolation, and thanks to the idiots on the football team I can't even fully enjoy that.



Hahahahaha.

In related news, I'm officially sold on Blake Griffin. (But not yet sold on the Clippers' chances to make the playoffs. Aren't they still the third-worst team in the West?)

They started 5-21 and have gone 8-3 since, with wins against San Antonio, Denver, New Orleans, Chicago, Miami, and Oklahoma City and coming within 4th quarter collapses of knocking of Atlanta, Dallas, and Utah twice. Without that horrible (even by Clipper standards) start, they're probably fighting for the 6 or 7 spot.

As for Blake, ever since Simmons wrote that dreaded Clipper Curse column and Blake went out for all of last season, everyone's been holding their collective breath.

Personally, Simmons has me so convinced something bad's going to happen, I wouldn't be shocked if Blake tears an ACL during the freakin' Dunk Contest.

Meanwhile, Cleveland's last three games look like this:

Lakers 112, Cavs 57
Jazz 121, Cavs 99
Nuggets 127, Cavs 99

Maybe we should just call the whole karma thing a wash.
