LeBron James may think karma is a b**** when it comes to his former team, but that doesn’t mean he is afraid to give them a little plug every now and then. Since we tend to be extremely critical of LeBron here on LBS, I’ll let you be the judge of whether or not King James was being sincere with his latest comments about the Cavs losing streak.
As we all know, the Cavaliers are amidst the worst losing streak in NBA history, having lost 25 straight. On Sunday, they will take on the Washington Wizards. What makes this match-up particularly special is that the Wizards are on quite a humiliating run themselves — they have yet to win a road game. Washington is a perfect 0-25 on the road this season, and with two home games to play before Sunday that record is going to remain in tact. The Cavs have two games of their own before the Battle of the Bums, so it’s possible their streak will be snapped by then.
If the Cavs run their streak to 27 straight losses, LeBron thinks the game should be nationally televised. “I think that should be a nationally televised game right there, honestly,” LeBron said. “Something has to give in that game.” Ya think?
Something certainly does have to give if the Cavs lose their next two games. There are no ties in basketball. Either the Cavaliers will snap their losing streak or the Wizards will win a game on the road. The question is does LeBron really think that is something worth televising, or is he patronizing two horrendous basketball teams? You be the judge.Google+
