1) Looks like Kobe's gone for several weeks at least. Even without Shaq, they've been underachieving this season (IMO) and this game proved it. Two words: Ewing Theory.
2) Cleveland was wicked sloppy the entire game for a team that's known not to be sloppy. And Paul Silas had that Herm Edwards "ready to F someone up" scowl on his face for the entire game. The Cavs really need a perimeter shooter.
3) LeBron is a freak. Despite how horribly the Cavs played, he still had his probably 4th or 5th near-miss from a triple double and very nearly single-handedly won the game - a la T-Mac vs. the Spurs.
And I still think he's 29.
4) It was none other than Ira "Superkick" Newble who caused the injury.

LeBron James is so much better than I thought he would be. It is hard to believe that he is 20 years old. I find myself watching the Cavs a lot just to watch him. As Simmons said the other day, there is nothing around him on this team and they're going to win 55 games. Amazing.
