Good afternoon sports fan, the Cavs smacked the Heat least night.
It's always fun beating Miami, although they aren't as good as advertised. At least not yet. Yeah, I know, somehow a team starting Goran Dragic, Dwayne Wade, Luol Deng, and Hassan Whiteside struggled mightily with spacing. Then a bench unit with Josh McRoberts and Amare Stoudemire couldn't defend. Weird.
Anyway, the Heat probably need a tweak or two (Gerald Green more minutes with starters? No Amare without Bosh?) to be more formidable the next time. We'll see what happens.
Until then, we laugh.
A shrine of disrespect
Help yourself to a wide variety of seats, Christopher.
Thompson admitted he needed that block to save himself some grief after Dwyane Wade briefly checked in his dignity.
Perhaps nobody got it as bad as Dwight Howard though, causing a stadium worker and Andre Iguodala to lose their heads.
Well, maybe Nene did. After making the strange decision to play as his own corpse for Halloween.

We do not abide your Dion slander

All I'm saying is that OKC needed double OT, so clearly Dion's points were the critical factor. Without them they lose FACTS ONLY.
At least someone gets it.
Folks are mean to Drew Gooden, legendary Cavalier
Seriously. Dude just yelled YOU SUCK at Drew Gooden. He shrugged, said "I know" and sat down. Fans around me just went "oh awww." WHUT.— Pratik Patel (@PatelESPN) October 31, 2015

That one time someone got mad on the internet (bad language)

Seems simple enough. Tristan Thompson escorted Chris Bosh's attempt, A.K.A. "That weak stuff" away from the rim. A.K.A "Outta Here"
@bballbreakdown That's a foul. Elbowed Bosh in the chest. It's called a "body foul". Google it fuckers.— Jason Paul (@JBird2000) October 31, 2015
BUT NO. NO. SOMEONE IS IN THEIR FEELINGS. THIS HIGHLIGHT IS ACTUALLY A TICKY TACK FOUL. YES, THAT IS WHAT IT IS BECAUSE WHAT HURTS THE MOOOOOOOOOSSTTTT.....
That one time someone on the internet didn't know what they were talking about
Now the Cavs will figure out they can't run ISO all the time, but their defense will be Swiss cheese. Also, the ball moves better w/o Kyrie.— Harrison Cytryn (@hlcytryn) October 31, 2015
Now sure, you could say "They never installed the offense last year or ran any when Irving sat so probably this is not correct" Or, I guess, you could be like "Kyrie hasn't played yet and Mo Williams is damn content to dribble and chuck as well, but yes, this is different because Kyrie is out."
Again you COULD do that, but then I have to make fun of you in a column and nobody wins. Wait, actually I win. Never mind. Buy a Chrysler or Fiat and some Jordan/Nike brand products please.
