Cavaliers’ Fall now Worst in History

with 2 comments

Well, after last night’s horrendous 55 point loss to the Lakers, it’s worth revisiting the poor Cleveland Cavaliers.  Their SRS for this year is now down to -10.19, the worst of any team in the past decade.   That also puts their SRS fall from last year at -16.36, which surpasses the ’98-99 Bulls -15.82 for worst fall in history.

Again we can talk about how the Cavs are down on themselves and have had some injuries, but so have plenty of other teams in history, and none have fallen like this.

  1. I know they’re in my Bucks division and all but that’s just really embarrassing. If Cavs fans hadn’t done so much gloating about the Bucks over the past five years I’d feel really sorry for them. Which way now? Who’ve they really got as a developing talent? It’s hard to rebuild if all you’ve got is scorched earth.

  2. The game itself is embarrassing to the players but no team is really 50 point blowout bad. The team is terrible though, and such a complete embarrassment for the Cavs management. 7 years to build something, and this was the supporting cast they’d put together?

    As far as where to go from here, I say burn it to the ground and try to rebuild through the draft. What else can you do with a roster that by minutes played is one of the older rosters in the league and is by far the worst team?
