JR Smith tweets “Cavs in 8” following Game 5 loss to Warriors

Cleveland Cavaliers shooting guard J.R. Smith has never met a shot…or apparently a tweet that he doesn’t like. Following the Cavaliers loss to the Golden State Warriors in Game 3 last week, Smith tweeted out “Cavs in 7.” However, he claims his twitter account was hacked, and that he never actually sent that message.

“I’m smarter than that.” stated Smith.  That revelation was actually met with some disappointment, as many considered the prediction to be proof of the faith he still had in his teammates to rally, and win four games in a row.

On Monday night, the Warriors wrapped up their second title in three seasons with a convincing 129-120 victory over the Cavaliers to complete the best-of-seven series.

As Warriors forward Kevin Durant received his Finals MVP award, and the Warriors celebrated their title, Smith’s twitter flashed again. This time it stated “Cavs in 8.” You really can’t blame Smith for the Game 5 loss. He went 9 for 11 from the field, shooting 7 for 8 from three-point range. You can, however, understand why he would be so confused after watching his defense on Steph Curry for much of the series. Curry averaged 29 points, and nearly 10 assists for the series.

Cavaliers to sign Rihanna in hopes of bolstering bench

After two NBA Finals games, in which the Cleveland Cavaliers have been beaten by a combined score of 145 to 104 by the Golden State Warriors, management has decided to make a drastic move.

Cavaliers general manager David Griffin has announced that pop star Rihanna will be signed immediately to a 10 day contract. “We realize that this might seem unorthodox, but desperate times call for desperate measures. ” Griffin stated. “Rihanna has showed more passion than Kyle Korver, Channing Frye, and Deron Williams combined. At least she shows up for the games.”

The Barbadian singer, songwriter, and actress has never actually played organized basketball, but she doesn’t have huge shoes to fill. Through the first two games, Korver, Smith, and Williams have compiled a whopping 10 points combined.

“I think Rihanna can score five points per game.” Griffin said. “And if nothing else, she can distract the opposing players just by wearing a pair of basketball shorts on the floor. That would be more than any of these guys have done.”

Does Griffin worry that this lack of production from the Cavaliers bench could be an indictment of the quality in which he has done his job?

“I didn’t sign those guys.” Griffin insisted. “Those were Lebron’s guys, and he made the choice to sign them. I am just trying to correct his mistakes.”
