And his name is Donald Sterling.
You know you’ve probably done something wrong when your owner shows up to games solely for the reason of calling you a fat ass. Now, Donald isn’t a guy that’s content with just humiliating someone in public, Don had to send his ass packing. Just letting a guy go isn’t nearly enough, so he had to send a message, and that message was “fuck you”. So he sent poor Baron to basketball hell, aka our beloved Cleveland Cavaliers. Let that sink in for a second. He was sent to the Cavs, the team we’re supposed to root for, as a punishment.
Baron Davis, you poor bastard. He schlubbed up and down the court literally tens of times a game for the Clippers in their glory days (08-11), then they finally get a shred of respectability in rising superstar Blake Griffin, and he gets kicked to the curb. To the worst team in the league. With a coach that got him kicked off his first NBA team. And it’s in Cleveland.
So, congratulations Cleveland Cavaliers, you just inherited a lazy 31 year old guy who sat out his last game with a knee injury. The odds of that knee injury meaning he
can’t won’t play a game this year are almost 100%, given his track record. Don’t get me wrong, I love the guy off the court, but on the court, I’d rather have a burlap sack full of socks with a beard glued to it. It’s not like the Cavs are going to be contenders in the next 20 years so I don’t even know why I’m talking about it. Hopefully we can at least get some good youtube videos out of it (at least he’s cool).
UPDATE: I just got this e-mail from the Cavs (we like to keep in touch).
