Cavs Set Record for Most Consecutive Losses: The Cleveland Cavaliers lost to the Dallas Mavericks 99-96 Monday night, setting an NBA record with 25 straight defeats. Cavs forward Jamario Moon passed the ball as time expired instead of trying a 3-pointer that would have tied the game. "We're in the record books, we all know that, something we don't want to be a part of," player Antawn Jamison said.

I don't understand why Moon didn't shoot. Jamison said he passed him the ball because Moon was open, so obviously Jamison wanted him to shoot. Maybe Cleveland will turn it around when they play the Wizards.

I'm seriously thinking about placing a bet on the Cavs next opponent. If anything can stop this streak, it's my crap luck when it comes to betting games. Cleveland will likely win the game outright.

Dan Gilbert has some work to do if he's going to keep his promise and beat Lebron to a title.

Who knew that without Lebron they would be the worst team in the NBA?

I think there's this guy in Miami who had an inkling.

It was obvious the Cavs would be screwed if LeBron decided to leave. They had to wait for him to decide, which left them no maneuverability to replace him.

Interesting that a one-and-done Columbus native could be the first overall pick.

Replace him? Who else could you put on that team that would get them anywhee close to where they were last year? They are an awful team and I never thought much of them as a supporting cast either.
