The Cleveland Cavaliers are used to riding in first class on private planes and the team bus. New York Traffic makes fools of us all, though, and with the team in town to play the Knicks and facing a 45 minute bus ride, the team instead took the NYC subway, and seemed really, really pleased with themselves about it:
First of all, as a fellow city dweller, I gotta clown the Cavs for thinking this is so wild. It’s a train. We all take ‘em. It’s not that crazy. I shudder to think about what these dudes act like when they go to McDonalds. Do they just giggle the whole time about how they normally get filet mignons?
Second, put on your tin foil hats, ladies and gentlemen, because I think this was a planned publicity stunt. You really think LeBron James is just gonna be able to walk around a busy subway platform in Manhattan and have NOBODY bothering him? Even on the train, nobody was bothering them, and if I know one thing about New Yorkers, it’s that they’re not known for their restraint and politeness.
This whole thing was a set-up, and the NBA is profiting off our blind allegiances.
Open your eyes, people. Just because Kyrie is gone doesn’t mean we don’t have to still challenge what they tell us.
