Cleveland Cavaliers Break their own NBA Record Losing Streak!

Get ready for another round of the much-deserved “Cleveland is the most tortured sports city of all” type stories. It’ll be exactly like what the media produced following Lebron James’ official departure. Perhaps Joe Posnanski will write another piece about how everything in Cleveland has a depressing (or at least slightly dark) sounding name.

With a total of 52 games played this season, the Cleveland Cavaliers are 8-44. That is the worst record in the NBA. They have lost 25 consecutive games, which ties a franchise record and the NBA’s all-time record set by….guess who? the ‘81-‘82 and the ‘82-‘83 Cavaliers!

Like someone who really needs to hit the stairmaster, Cleveland desperately needs to strengthen their Cavs.

They lost 96-99 tonight in Dallas. Congrats Mark Cuban, you’re the next person who gets to set Cleveland aflame like the Cuyahoga River.
