Why You Shouldn't Root for the Cavaliers

Of all the teams in Cleveland to break the curse, you'd expect the Browns and Indians, who've suffered for so long, to finally breakthrough. After all, the Tribe did have those sick teams in the mid-1990s, consisting of Jim Thome, Kenny Lofton, and Manny Ramirez. However, it was the damn Cavaliers and that kid from Akron that got that honor.

If you're wondering who owns the Cavs, it's this man...

Comic sans aside, this is a pathetic attempt at rallying your city around your best star leaving. After LeBron took his talents to South Beach, Dan Gilbert tried to inspire the masses with hopes of winning an NBA title before the King. I wonder how that turned out...

The ironic thing is that Dan Gilbert gives more of a shit about installing security cameras and building prisons in Detroit than he does about Cleveland. The entire "Detroit Comeback" is primarily funded by him and the Ilitch family and is nothing more than a marketing ploy set up to his liking. If only he spent his time trying to make Cleveland a better place...

Gilbert's adamant about seeing Detroit hipsters and millennials have a false sense of pride about their city and putting them in a 1984 utopia. He could care less about the Cavaliers winning multiple NBA titles or what the Forest City wants. That's why LeBron left Cleveland not once, but twice.

As for the Cavs themselves, they had every opportunity to establish a dynasty. Cleveland was given three No. 1 picks this millennium and has mustered only one NBA title. That lone championship was because Draymond Green was hunting for someone's nuts to kick. Even Game 7 in that series shouldn't have been a nail-biter since the Warriors gave up.

Let's face it: the only reason why the Cavs were relevant in the first place was because of the King. Otherwise, nobody would care what the Cavs were doing. Cleveland deserves better than having someone from Michigan running their basketball team. That's why you should avoid the Cavs at all costs.
