Listen, we all knew what we were getting into this season as Cavs fans. We knew replacing the other fella was going to be hard, deep down though I’m not quite sure we thought it would be this hard. The pain and aguish we experienced once the words “I’m taking my talents to South Beach” were uttered were temporarily erased on the 27th of October, better known as opening night at the Q against Boston. The team that unwittingly ended our obsession with Number 23 were the victims in what was to be game one of the season where we showed the world that no matter who comes or goes, the Cavaliers will always be there. Hand on heart; can you honestly name me 3 good things that have happened since then for our Cavaliers? I can think of two – Mo’s game winner over Brandon Jennings and the victory over the (at the time smoking hot) Knicks. Yep, our season so far has been defined by victory over the Milwaukee Bucks and the New York Knicks. We’ve had a ten game losing streak, briefly ended with said victory over the Knicks, and now we’re the proud owners of the worst record in the Eastern Conference. Scratch that – the worst record in the entire NBA.
We’ve lost 28 games so far this season; the two seasons previous yielded a combined 37 losses. So to say this is a little bit of a culture shock to us Cavs faithful would be underselling it to the point where it’d be laughable. Some daunting numbers for you very briefly; we have the worst points differential in the league, we are 1-6 in our division where only one team is above .430, of our 28 losses 18 have been by ten or more points and we’ve only scored over 100 points twice in the past five or so weeks.no comments
