Cleveland Cavaliers’ 25-Game Losing Streak Inspires Brilliant Twitter Hashtag
The Cleveland Cavaliers’ futility has reached a new low: they set an NBA record with their 25th straight loss Monday night against the Mavericks. They actually played the hot Mavericks closely and had a chance to tie the game with a three at the end, but they were unable to hoist one up — helpless to the end.
The Cavs have lost four games in February, all 16 games they played in January, and 14 out of 15 games in December. They’ve been defeated in 35 of their last 36 games. 35 of 36! You might as well add an appendage to the saying “The only certainties in life are death, taxes, and that the Cavaliers will lose” because that’s a freaking guarantee.
Think about this: it’s February 8th, and the last time the Cavs won was December 18th at home against the Knicks. How pathetic is that?
It’s been so long since they’ve won, a brilliant hashtag on twitter was created called “#lasttimethecavswon.” LBS’ contribution to the tag (follow us on twitter!) was “lasttimethecavswon Dan Patrick and Keith Olbermann called their highlights on SportsCenter.”
There has been much better work done by the masses. Here’s a sampling:

As always, internet wins, Cavaliers lose.
