|The best of times and the worst of times.|
The first time that LeBron James returned to Cleveland as a Miami Heat, the Cavaliers fans were more concerned with booing LeBron than cheering for their own team. I think this was deflating for the players that are on the current roster, because people were more concerned about what they had lost rather than moving on an being excited for the future. Now that the fans have witnessed their team lose an NBA record 26 straight games, are they still bitching that James decided to leave, or are they thinking about whether or not freshmen forward/center Jared Sullinger will leave Ohio State after a year and declare for the NBA Draft. If I were a Cleveland fan, I would do the latter, because it makes no sense to dwell on the past now.
LeBron is truly a great player, and by losing him with out getting anything on the roster to atleast balance the level of talent lost, maybe this epic collapse was inevitable. However, I would be interested to see how the Cavs would be playing if they took this Confucian advice.
