I can almost hear the collective voices of each team's front office: "Listen, Lebron (followed by the awkward car salesman laugh) we know we're horrible. But we did this all for you."

You have two great players and to quote Bill the butcher in Gangs of New York "a handful of rag tags?" They play zero defense and D'antoni's teams never have. Lebron has developed a love for defense and knows how vital it is to winning. He comes from a culture in which his coach didn't even install an offense until his team could defend. The Nets.....well they're 6-54!!!! Not one time have they won more than one game in a calendar week. The Cavs are on a 5 game winning streak. You have to go back to January of last season for the last time they won more than 5 games in a month. The culture of losing in these places is running rampant and pretty much has been deemed acceptable by their front offices because they believe the end will justify the means.
