I'm not trolling, I'm suggesting it's unfair to blame just LBJ for tonight. Back to your regularly scheduled pity party.

its tilting that they have not fed kg far more with jaminodefense guarding him, also his end of quarter plays which involve either rondo dribbling the ball until 3 secs are left on the shot clock and putting up a 3pter or long 2 or a pierce iso are both awful as well

they also need to stop trying to get pierce off against lebron and focus even more on the kg/rondo/ray mismatches they have instead

Re: NBA Eastern Conference Playoffs: Cavaliers vs Celtics

NOT MY OPINION BUT THAT OF A VERY DISGUSTED and rightly so CLEVELAND SPORTS FAN

The moment? Listen, I'm a real fan, been a fan of cleveland all my life, gave up on the Indians after they choked game 7 with 2 outs. They went downhill into the pits and maybe came back against boston but lost that series even though they were up 3-1.

Browns? Loved them back in the kosar years, but they choked.

Now it's the basketball turn, The "Savior" had 7 years to get his crap together and bring a ring for this city in peril. This WAS the chosen year, this was titled his championship year. All I see now is 2nd round exit.

So I have given up on pretty much all cleveland sports teams throughout my life, because they really have not given the fans anything to cheer about, except maybe best home season record. Whoppee doo da day. What a great accomplishment! Sorry, my relationship for the cavs ends tonight. You don't go down for the count in a 32 point differential loss in a "pivotal" game. This team has absolutely no choice, and "The chosen one" lebron seems to have already made up his mind. 3-14? Toss in the towel guys, this one is over with.

I'm switching to some other team, maybe Orlando. At least they have their game together, not this mess of a team we call the cavaliers. Oh...and this is me not hitting the door on the way out. Love this town, but the sports franchises are in the pits. Later bron, take this coach with you and choke elsewhere, and give us a team that at least shows a disappointment during the regular season instead of giving their all and totally not showing up in the end. Way to go.

maybe he said it at some point but what i do remember is bgeclipper constantly saying during game 1 that "this is the best the celtics could have played and we still lost" and constantly implied that we had no shot vs the cavs

i obv called him out since it tilted me so much and said lol @ being the best the celtics could play considering they sucked ass for pretty much the entire 2nd half of that game, well guess what last nights game was close to as good as the celtics could play, actually who am i kidding, rondo could have played far better

Re: NBA Eastern Conference Playoffs: Cavaliers vs Celtics

He (Lebron ) had to do this on purpose. The question is why would he deliberately tank the playoffs on purpose. When you consider the fact that LeBron is one of the best all around players to ever play in the NBA. There is no way he could play so badly without actually trying to.

lol yea this is the only thing victor says that i really disagree with, just laughable

give a lot of credit to the celtics who have guarded lebron (pierce/tony allen) as well as our help defense from our bigs (kg/perk)

just saw the edit. lebron is playing against a good defensive team( one of the best at stopping him alone). its not like he is going to have a field day every night.

to say that lebron had an off night just because "he wasnt trying" is a big insult to lebron and the celtics.

I think its laughable and unbelievable because I don't think people understand how good LeBron is. Or even what makes him so much better than Paul Pierce and Tony Allen. Even on a off night no one should be able to hold LeBron to just 15 points in the NBA PLAYOFFS!! It shouldn't be possible and if it is. Its because he tanked the game or that was some LeBron lookalike

I understand just how good lebron is, hes clearly the best player in the NBA and his peak is easily top 2 of all time alongside jordan.

However the dude is still human and is playing against a great defense, really bad games are possible even for him (infact in games 1 and 2 of the playoff series against the celtics 2 years ago he played even worse than he did last night.) Acting like he tanked the game is beyond ******ed and should be a bannable offence

edit for boxscores of game 1 and 2 from 2 years ago playoff series
