I have the TV on as I write this, with Montreal crushing Pittsburgh right now in Game Seven of their Stanley Cup series by a 4-0 count, but I don't want to talk about that. Right now I want to talk about LeBron James.

The Cleveland Cavaliers' shocking home blowout loss at the hands of the Boston Celtics have all the sportswriters on LeBron's case and lambasting the guy for not showing up when he needed to. Here's a SBNation piece just roasting the poor guy. And it's not just them -- the folks on ESPN Radio last night were taking him to the cleaners as well.

Personally, I'm shocked and sad. These poor fans in Cleveland have had to deal with so much misery and heartbreak, and now it looks like their great season may go right down the tubes.

Of course, the next question is whether James will stand up the citizens of Cleveland should they go on and lose the series. He's a free agent, and there are still people insisting LeBron could end up in a major market with a team like, say, the New York Knicks. Well, all I will say about that is that based on his last performance, going 3 for 14 against Boston, LeBron would fit in quite nicely with that bunch of bums and losers.

You get the feeling that Cleveland is going through exactly what Toronto fans went through with Vince Carter and his primadonna attitude when he was with the Raptors?! It's exactly this type of thing -- these big players letting the fans down at the worst possible time and giving a "B" or "C" effort -- that drives NBA fans absolutely nuts.

And an update to you hockey fans -- it's now 4-1 in that shocking hockey game. (I guess the Habs really are Canada's team after all, eh?! The only one left that's winning.) .

UPDATE: It's 4-2.
