The Cavs were run off the court in a 34-point blowout against the Raptors. Things got ugly, and even featured LeBron James yelling at teammates during a timeout. It was Cleveland’s second loss by 25 or more points, and this morning some critics were already out burying LeBron’s chances in the playoffs with this roster.
Colin isn’t panicked over the loss, and thinks the meltdown has zero long-term impact on the playoff picture. January struggles are nothing new to LeBron teams, and it’s typically the time where he teaches lessons to teammates and the organization. But every year, for the last seven years, James ends up in the Finals. Bet against Cleveland if you want, but Colin always bets on LeBron figuring things out. He’s been right for the last seven years.
