Good morning, the Cavs three best players finally played together last night.
Pretty sure they're clapping for LeBron, not you, Mike Miller: http://t.co/snZD4qCrza pic.twitter.com/TpErzybHUk— SB Nation (@SBNation) October 21, 2014
The end result was a victory over the Bulls, or as Bulls fans call it: "If Derrick Rose would've played more minutes ..."
Kidding of course, it's preseason. I won't lie when I say seeing the Cavs score on the Bulls with all the resistance of a wet napkin felt kind of nice. The Cavs used what was pretty close to their regular season rotation, with Joe Harris, AJ Price, Shane Edwards, and Brendan Haywood finding themselves glued to the pine. We don't look a Win Horse in the mouth around these parts though, so I still spent 8 minutes feverishly trying to open a celebratory beer before deciding the cap was hurting my hands (I got these really smooth, soft hands, see) and relenting to locate a bottle opener. Twist off cap my foot, Miller Brewing Company.
We got highlights

Derrick Rose scores in every way imaginable, dropping 30 in Bulls' 107-98 loss to Cavaliers. http://t.co/YJl1cxMkn6 https://t.co/y76UIRdDwm— theScore (@theScore) October 21, 2014
This was pretty dope. Rose looked good last night, which was fun. Clearly the Cavs still have some ironing out to do as far as their pick and roll coverage goes (looking at you, Kevin).

Look I'm sure in his real life with his real name Buck-I-Guy is a nice fellow. A wonderful man that does many kind things. I really don't know anything about him. I do know, though, that superfans are THE ABSOLUTE WORST. WORST. STOP IT. Really anyone who wears an elaborate costume to a sporting event. You confuse me and I find it upsetting.
I should probably know more about Buck-I-Guy though, because I am curious to see if he went to OSU. He might have, I'm not saying he didn't, I'm just curious. My buddy Patrick put me on to a hilarious stunt he pulls: Any time he sees someone covered in the gear of a big time college he asks them when they graduated. Lots of blank stares and "well... actually", it's great. Maybe it's mean. Oh well mean can be fun.
LEAVE KOBE ALONE
Did you know that ESPN ran a big ol piece detailing how Kobe potentially destroyed the franchise or something? I read it, it was interesting, but I dunno. It's a sourced story, so you take what you want from it. Alas, this is the internet, and Kobe will melt it before he retires.

Life came at Derrick Rose fast. Last night, he came back at the Cavs faster. My column from Columbus: http://t.co/SWOehBmmNj— Ethan J. Skolnick (@EthanJSkolnick) October 21, 2014

Kevin Love + Tristan Thompson + Gibson-Mirotic frontcourt = offensive rebounds— Kevin Pelton (@kpelton) October 20, 2014
Varejao misses, LeBron and Love are both there for the rebound. This offense spaces the floor as well as it boards— Ethan Strauss (@SherwoodStrauss) October 20, 2014

I hate this Cavs team more than I've ever hated any team but man they move the ball well. Meshing well together already.— Pancakes&waffles (@_tarheelskid_) October 21, 2014
Let the hate flow through you, y'all.
That is all I got on account of Kobe breaking the internet. When we lift the biohazard dome off of this ESPN piece reaction, maybe some other cool stuff will happen.
Cavs fans gave LeBron a standing ovation. Mike Miller tried to steal it: http://t.co/snZD4qCrza pic.twitter.com/TpErzybHUk— SB Nation (@SBNation) October 21, 2014
Thank you, thank you. (yes I had to use it twice)
