Tapping Some Zydrunas Rage

Down 0-2 the Cavs bounced back tonight, kicking the crap out of the Boston Celtics, 108-84. LeBron James struggled again, shooting only 5-0f-16 from the field, but was rescued by cookie-making elf Delonte West.

After the game however, is when I feel the first great sub-plot of this series began. When Manchester United mega-fan Zydrunas Ilgauskas was told Kevin Garnett was pulling for Chelsea, Man. U's opponent in the English Premier League title game, he lost his shit. "He's a fake fan," said Ilgauskas. "What, did he become a fan when he went to London?"

Ohhhhhhhhh snap!

I love this. Zydrunas, who has never really talked shit about anyone ever just can't help but say something when the thought of Garnett rooting against his beloved soccer team is brought up.

Garnett himself has not responded to being called a "fake fan" but I'm really hope he does. At this point, anything to get Z pissed off and motivated during the series is positive for the Cavs. I want to see Garnett show up to 'The Q' Monday in a Chelsea jersey or start using British slang in his interviews. In fact, I hope Chelsea wins the stupid title game and its announced during the 4th quarter of game 4 or 5. After hearing the news Man. U lost and seeing Kevin Garnett on the floor, Z will probably explode for like 30 points.

Are you talking about soccer, or are you trying to write like Kirby Puckett spoke, Man?

A little of both I suppose.
