With only seven players, things somehow get worse for Cavaliers

Cleveland Cavaliers v Los Angeles Lakers

The Cavaliers only had eight players available tonight for their game in Denver. Daniel Gibson, Christian Eyenga, Anthony Parker, Anderson Varejao, Joey Graham, and Leon Powe are all out with injuries. The Cavs lost by 50 to the Lakers the other night. Things can’t get worse, right?

Mo Williams left the game and went to the locker room with a hip flexor problem. He had considered staying out of this game, but with all the injuries, decided to give it a go. He will not return.

At the time of this post, the Cavs are down by 31 points, and have just seven players at their disposal.

Basketball Gods, on behalf of all of us, make it end. They have suffered enough.

    Isn’t that what the D-League is for?

    It is OBVIOUS that the Cavs need to make a move here. WTF, there’s talent available around the league, at least enough to put a full team on the floor. Time to move on, Gilbert – and either get competitive or sell it; you’ll have piles of disposable income from the casinos. This team is an embarassment to the city, state, country, & planet. If effort was being made to upgrade, well then losing would be understandable (but still not acceptable), but non-action is digging a deeper hole. Losing teams put the city under a bad light, and right now Cleveland has no winner in ANYTHING. At least Columbus has the Buckeyes (football and basketball) and BlueJackets are rising. Sick & tired of the national humiliation when even smaller market teams can be competitive in this day and age. And all we got is a BIG, FAT 0.

    cant believe things have sunken this low. how can a team of 2 all stars (jamison/williams) and other pieces parts be so bad, trade em all except verajao and let some kids play, harris has shown some not that he is/will be a hof’r. but dammit I have watched 2 games opener and dec 2 vs heat. do they even deserve the top pick?

    And theres no Dwight or Lebron in this years draft anyway.Hell theres no Wall in this years draft.Maybe they get Sullenger from OSU and he becomes a Kevin Love type puttin up good numbers on a putrid team.I think they need to see what they can get for Jamison Williams and Verajoe(proly got to wait til after the season with the injury)Sessions and Boobie and move on with the young guys like Eyenga Harris and Hixon.I know that doesnt sound great but whats the point of trying to move on with leftovers and complimentary players.Theres nothing to compliment out there!!!

    This is HILARIOUS …..Are there ANY persons left that think LBJ did not make the right decision to leave this black hole !
    Since he raised $1 MILLION for the Boys and Girls Club of America, I never had a problem with how he left.
    I got 3 words for ya – CON-TRAC-TION !!!!
