I don't agree there Clyde, it seems the Kings are at least starting to put together their future core players in Evans, Cuz and Casspi. They are a couple of years past the tear down stage of a rebuild.

You're right.

I thought it was the 76ers on 11/5/10 when they lost to the Cavs but that is no longer the case

The Cavs are hands down the worst team in the league. Now as far as the worst franchise it'd be hard to find a team more poorly run than the Charlotte Bobcats.

Ironically enough, Cleveland Cavs are still #2 in the NBA for Home Attendance:

2010-2011 NBA Attendance - National Basketball Association - ESPN

This is going to have to set an NBA record for highest attendance per victory in one season...by a long shot!

The Cavs started out 4-4 (or so) and have fallen apart since. I think how bad they are by losing only 2 players from last year shows Lebron had good reason to leave.

If they liked it they should have put a championship ring on it.

Costello, as you probably know, the main reason attendance has remained so high this season is that season ticket holders had to renew last year if they wanted priority on playoff tickets. Just wait until next season when there is a sharp fall-off. Sadly, the Q will be mostly empty as it was during the late 90s/early 00s. I went to a game in March 2003, and there were maybe 5000 people there, and that was with Jim Tressel speaking at halftime fresh off the Buckeyes national championship! Unless some drastic upgrades are made to the roster this off-season, get used to seeing that again unfortunately.

I think the turning point was when the Heat visited them and Lebron went off for 38. Prior to that they seemed to be motivated to prove they were respectable without him, but have since fallen apart.

One advantage the Cavs have though is an owner who is determined to have the team become competitive again. He will be agressive in obtaining players even if attendance is low for a couple of seasons. I expect him to rebuild in more of the older Pistons or current Spurs teams, less focused on individual players but more in terms of complementary skills.

Big contrast to the Indians, which have an owner reluctant to spend the money unless the fans first show an interest.
