We're just two games away from an NBA toilet bowl of epic proportions. On Sunday, February 13, the Washington Wizards, losers of their first 25 road games, will take on the Cleveland Cavaliers, who have lost an NBA-record 25 straight games overall. The Cavaliers have two games before then (vs. Detroit, vs. the LA Clippers), but if they lose those games, their streak will be at 27. It's a game interesting only for its unintentional comedy.
And if it were up to LeBron James, it'd be on national television for the whole world to see. James has taken his shots at his former team after Dan Gilbert's sneering letter upon his dismissal, and we all know his history of hating the Wizards, so it shouldn't be surprising that he took the chance to poke fun at these teams' misery when he had the chance.
"Something has to give in that game where they play the Wizards," James said. "I think that should be a nationally televised game right there, honestly."
James claimed that the losing streak was a "sensitive subject," then joked that they should put the game on national TV anyway. Some sensitive subject, huh? I'm guessing LeBron just wants to see two miserable teams that loathe him have to suffer against each other.
