Case of the Mondays…

On a positive note, I have to say great job to the Cavs on Saturday in the game against the Knicks. 9 more games left, please bring some more victories against the Rockets and the Nets while you’re all back in The Land. Again, not a basketball expert, but continue to play as a team and show everyone what y’all are made of!! Let’s get ready to bring a championship to The Land, finally! #AllForOne

On a different note major props to K.Love on Saturday’s game. Great job putting up some major pointage once again against the Knicks and major props to Mr. James on his awesome dunk of the nite.

On a less positive note, and maybe I just need a little something to rant about, the K.Love criticism needs to stop. I know it won’t just because I’m saying something, but really? I will admit with the coaching switch and after the trade rumors that were flying around K.Love’s been getting more positive press, but to all the negative press, really? He’s obviously doing his job everyday seeing how and where he fits in, and even if he’s not putting up 28 or 29 points a nite, he’s still an integral part of the Cavs. Isn’t it enough he’s started every game he’s played in unless he’s been sick or injured.

Also, have any of the critics bothered to check out K.Love’s 3 part series on the Player’s Tribune website about the rehab from his shoulder injury?  I guess, my point is what more do they want from him short of performing a miracle for the Cavs? Which I mean we have LeBron James, right…and I feel like Mr. James is putting 110%+ along with Kyrie Irving and all the other Cavs players.

So haters gonna hate, I suppose, but is all the criticism happening because the Cavs are trying to become NBA championship ready? Who knows. I just wanted to add my two cents about K.Love, because I feel like he’s taking all the heat, but all the critics aren’t really giving any plausible solutions, and while there’s definitely been improvement his game, people are still talking.

Oh well, probably not my non-basketball expert place to speak. Again, just a concerned Cavs fan who supports the whole team and just wondering what’s up with some of the criticism. I just feel like he wouldn’t be commanding the salary he’s commanding if he wasn’t doing what he’s paid to do. Just saying.

And once again in response to the critics, K.Love did happen to help propel the team along with LeBron James and the rest of the team in Kyrie Irving’s absence so all those victories before Kyrie returned do mean something and he did play a definite if not major role in those victories pre-Kyrie this season. K.Love also has stepped up the two times that Kyrie’s been out…e.g. the game against OKC and Saturday’s game against the Knicks, so these discussion points have to count for something, right?

Here’s the link to one a more positive article I’ve recently read on the Cavs and K.Love from cleveland.com:


I guess my overall point is that K.Love does more than just sit there and look pretty on the sidelines.

Ok, enough with the defense of K.Love and on to a few song’s from today’s playlist. I have to give the R & B and Hip-Hop world some major kudos for their takes on a few recent country songs. I just heard Nelly’s version of Thomas Rhett’s song Die a Happy Man and totally loved it, so that is the first song in today’s playlist. The second song is an 80’s throwback, just because, and the last song is one that I love by Stars Go Dim, that’s been in frequent rotation on a local Christian station that I enjoy. Without further ado and for your listening pleasure, I present the YouTube videos of these three songs. Have a good nite everyone!

Dear Cavs…

Dear Cavs,

Please, please, pretty please?  Only 10 more games to go!! You can pull it together for the wins, right? Number 1 in the Eastern Conference…c’mon team, show ’em what you’re made of!

With All the Cavs Love in the World and More,

the not so sophisticated life

P.S. Knock ’em dead on Saturday with your team’s overall amazingness…and for goodness sakes you are a team…remember that!!!

Let’s go Cavs!!

This is what us Cavs fans like to see! Way to go Cavs! Let’s make it another winner on Wednesday against the Bucks! #CavsBucks

Also, question to Mr. Lebron James, uh, what’s going on with you on social media?? Lots of rumors flying around? Do you have anything to say to address them? Please let me know, thanks!  Lastly, congratulations on your second triple double of the year!

P.S. #Shoutout to K.Love…get well soon!

So what about them Cavs?

“Yikes,” is all I have to say about tonight’s game against the Heat.

I was on the edge of my seat last nite with the Magics game, but tonite’s game with the Heat was a whole different story. When I’m visibly wincing as the other team is making buckets…there has to be something wrong.

The obvious part is that the Miami Heat played a good game, but is it safe to say that the Cavs have improved since their last meet up with the Heat?

Again, not a basketball expert, but just saying. Since the Cavs made some new additions, I definitely have to say the bench is starting to pick up and do a lot better. When K.Love, Kyrie, and LBJ sat down to let some of the other guys get some minutes, they didn’t put in a half bad effort considering the circumstances. The Cavs were down at least 30 by the time all 3 had sat down and then decreased the deficit to a little over 20…and guys like Jefferson and James Jones had some pretty nice shots…

However, guys, could you please pull it together? This may not be your last encounter with the Heat…and while your last meet up with the Heat in December was maybe not as painful…guys, please?? Just play your best and WIN. Thanks.

Not sure how relevant this quote is to the Cavies…buuuttt…I really like it…Let’s.go.Cavs. Final push ’til the playoffs!!!
