Today’s date is February 8, 2011. The Cleveland Cavaliers have not won a game since December 18, 2010.
Fifty-two days ago was the last time the Cavs experienced a victory. The Christmas holidays, New Year’s and MLK Day have come and gone and Cleveland is still winless.
The previous record was held by, guess who? That’s right, the 1982-83 Cleveland Cavaliers. That team lost 24 straight over the span of two seasons.
At 8-44, the Cavs have made 25 consecutive futile attempts at victory. Their next chance will come on Wednesday against the Pistons as the Cavs begin an 8-game home stand.
Has anybody heard from Dan Gilbert lately? I know. I shouldn’t kick a man when he’s down.
