Best Part of the Cavs/Lakers Game

I know I tweeted the hell out of my followers on Thursday from the Cavs/Lakers game in Cleveland, but there was one point in the game where I thought the place would explode. And no, it wasn’t when they showed Lil’ Wayne on the jumbotron.

It was very late in the game, with about 24 seconds left in the 4th quarter. Cavs were up 2 points and coming back from a TV time out. The sound guy put on the Eminem verse from “Forever” — a song by Drake feat. Kanye West, Lil Wayne & Eminem, that appears on LeBron’s movie soundtrack — on the loudspeaker as the teams returned from the timeout. To say King James was fired up was an understatement. He was rapping along to the song and the crowd got on their feet! It was soooo loud! Very cool moment that made its way to YouTube:

Clearly, LeBron wins at life.

I do have a couple of pics I took during the game. They’re coming later…

Yea, We’re Jinxes!

So, each year — for the past 5-6 — the family and I head up to Cleveland whenever the Lakers come to town. We generally get the “hook up” because my uncle is on the Lakers coaching staff; not to mention a former player!

And, every year, the Lakers lose. It never fails. It does not matter who is the better team, even though it’s always been the Lakers. They never win in Cleveland. Period.

Fast forward to this year and Sunday’s game. The Cavs actually stepped up their game this season and are among the elite in the league. As a result, this ticket was way more in demand than your average Lakers/Cavs game. My uncle tried to secure tickets for us, but wasn’t successful. Naturally, we were bummed, but not because we were going to miss the game. We only see said uncle once a year, and it’s usually at this game. We get the VIP treatment and get to meet up with him after the game, before the team boards the buses.

So, we don’t make the game in Cleveland and the Lakers finally win. Coincidence? I think not! We’re jinxes!
