Cleveland Cavaliers vs. New Orleans Pelicans: The Twitter Experience and Face Tattoo!

David Richard-USA TODAY Sports

The Cavs lost to the New Orleans Pelicans, but Anthony Bennett broke out.

Have you guys ever heard of Tony Robbins? Tony Robbins is a motivational speaker that makes ridiculous amounts of cash for, yes, motivating people. I have lived my life, all 26 years of it, thinking that the field of motivational speaking was kind of a joke. I mean, who really benefits from that? Well, apparently Anthony Bennett.

I am not familiar with the techniques Robbins uses, but one of our favorite community members here at Fear The Sword was so concerned for Bennett, and wanted so badly to help him out that he took this......unorthodox approach. And then the strangest damn thing happened: Bennett responded. 15 points, 8 rebounds, 1 assist, 1 block.

Now, if there is one thing Twitter loves, it's a feel good story. Soon, bleeding hearts all across the country were so proud of the devotion to team, and fellow man that Aviate showed, that they began cheering for Bennett, in all corners of cyberspace.

Except this girl


Yes, on this night, the Cavaliers lost, but America? We won. We came together for a greater cause, built a stronger bond between fan and athlete, and forever committed to eternity the time Anthony Bennett scored 15 points in an NBA game. They say people with Face Tattoos cannot get gainful employment. I say Aviate will never look for work as a motivational speaker again. No, the work will find Aviate, and we will all be better for it.

We've even got a pretty good jumping off point:

Some other random stuff:

This is a real thing that happened. If you're reading this, and are able to get Katy Perry or Jennifer Lawrence to tell me happy birthday, I might actually pass out of happiness.

We also learned that CJ Miles is not on a cold streak, he just had a hot streak once:

I have so many more thoughts and ideas, specifically about trading Varejao and just embracing the horror, but we will save that for another day. I don't want to steal face tattoos shine. We've done good today, America.
