Happy day after Thanksgiving! The Cavaliers are off today, so take the full day to recover from yesterday’s festivities, and please don’t terrorize retail employees today.

The Cavs are hanging in there against contenders, and they’ve had a legit shot at winning almost every game. Yeah, they’ll eventually need to start turning near-wins into actual wins. But the fact that they’re putting themselves in position to win is a new and positive development.
