I Hate to be Cavalier But....

Things aren't going so well for the Cleveland Cavaliers since King LeBron James left his court.

Less than two years removed from the NBA Final, the Cavaliers have amassed an NBA record 25 consecutive losses after falling 99-96 to the Dallas Mavericks last night.

The previous mark for consecutive losses was set during the 1981-82/1982-83 seasons by, you guessed it, the Cleveland Cavaliers who lost 24 consecutive games. The late Chuck Daly, who went to far greater success with the Detroit Pistons and the 1992 U.S. Olympic Dream Team, was the head coach for part of that losing streak.

You know things are bad in Cleveland when people starting looking forward to the Indians breaking camp for spring training. Well, sort of.

Congratulations to the Cleveland Cavaliers on making NBA history! The next step for them is to make history by having the longest losing streak in the four major professional sports leagues. They can do this by losing their next two games. Maybe we’ll get really lucky and see them lose the rest of their games this season. That would give them a record of 8-74, and they would set the NBA record for fewest wins in a season.
