The Cavs Have Swag
Three Cavs notes. Bear in mind that I have to get back to D.C. somehow, so there will be a bog gap at some point. And yes, I should basically just switch locker rooms for a few days. The Bog requires happy athletes. I'll get back to the Wiz during their dramatic late-series comeback.
1) After LeBron spoke at the podium last night, he came back to the Cavs' locker room. He was singing "Drew make it rain, he make it, ohhhhhh," etc. Drew Gooden had also talked at the podium, but now, he was surrounded by a crowd of reporters and was talking again.
"Drew, you did the podium, man," LeBron said, disapprovingly. "He's got so much swag now, he's talking to everybody."
I remember when the Wiz were the ones with the swagfest.
2) After Gooden left the locker room, he was mocked by friends who claimed his shorts had slipped down pretty low in the back when he got off the bench at one point, and that this had been shown either on the scoreboard or on TV. I believe "booty fallin' out" was the exact phrase.
"Indecent exposure, call your lawyers," one friend said.
"You had booty everywhere," someone else said.
"Us married folk, we look forward to stuff like this," someone else said.
3) Larry Hughes starts every game with a headband. He doesn't finish every game with a headband. On advice of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, I asked why.
"It's just something I do," he said. "Sometimes there's a rhyme and reason, sometimes it's just frustration. I've been known to put it back on, or put a different one on. I don't know, it's just how I'm feeling."
Yesterday he finished the game sans headband. He told me he had thrown it in a trash can during halftime. I asked if that meant he was frustrated yesterday.
"A little bit," he said. "We weren't playing well, weren't playing like we needed to be playing. The game was way too close. I was a little bit frustrated. I went without it the whole second half. I actually really use it for sweat, so I was wiping my face with my jersey a lot, which I don't like to do. But that's the way it goes."
