Naturally, mainly Oakland residents were disappointed and upset when the Raiders move to Las Vegas was approved on Monday.
Trail Blazers star Damian Lillard, who hails from the Bay USA Cheap Jerseys Area, was one of those fans, and took to Twitter to deliver a burn to Raiders owner Mark Davis.
The media was upset because another prime-time matchup — Cavs vs. Clippers — was diluted. Even the NBA wasn’t pleased, as the league called Cavs GM David Griffin shortly after the start of the game.
Well, the Big Three were back in action Sunday as they combined to score 101 of the Cavs’ 125 points against the Lakers. When asked afterward about the outrage from the day before, Lue defended his decision.
“I mean, it’s stupid,” Lue said Sunday before the game, via the Akron Beacon Journal. “Kyrie didn’t come back the game before, knee soreness. Kevin just had his first game back, we needed two days in between each game. It’s OK, though, whatever. It’s stupid.”
James defended his coach when he was asked about the whole ordeal after the team’s win Sunday.
“I don’t think the NBA can do anything about it,” James said. “At the end of the day, it Vip Cheap Jerseys sucks at times where certain guys have to rest, but certain guys need rest.

The Cavs still have plenty of issues, but they also have championship experience and James, who has played in the past six NBA Finals series (which still looks ridiculous no matter how many times you read it).
It all comes back to this: Should the Cavs actually care about the one seed? Cleveland is playing for the real No. 1 in the end, the right to hold the Larry O’Brien Championship Trophy. And as Nelly told you, that’s all anyone remembers, right?
