The Cavs preseason intro video will give you a Cleveland boner

A nice ode to the 2008-2009 season with the Jeezy music.

Here’s the ’08-’09 verson:

Let’s compare the two:

08-09 roster (in order of appearance)

  • LeBron James (decent player)
  • Zydrunas Ilgauskas (Cavs hall of famer, 2x all star)
  • Terrance Kinsey (who?)
  • Wally Sczerbiak (good looking white guy who could shoot)
  • Delonte West (had an affinity for moms or something)
  • Lorenzen Wright (12x NBA all star)
  • JJ Hickson (broken jump shot)
  • Mo Williams (decent, choked in the playoffs)
  • Ben Wallace (great defender, skills diminished while in Cleveland)
  • Sasha Pavlovic (bum)
  • Darnell Jackson (umm..played at Kansas?)
  • Anderson Varejao (the Wild thing, fan favorite)
  • Jawad Williams (saw him on West 6th one night)
  • Boobie Gibson (parlayed 1 good ECF game into a fat contract, married a nice, proper, professional young woman)

2014 Intro Video roster

  • Kyrie Irving (2x all star, All star MVP, FIBA world championship MVP)
  • Dion Waiters (4th pick in 2012 NBA draft)
  • Kevin Love (too many accolades to list. really really good)
  • Anderson Varejao (one of 2 players from the 08-09 team)
  • Mike Miller (deadly 3 point shooter)
  • Brendan Haywood (serviceable big man)
  • LeBron James (has blossomed into an above average player)
  • James Jones (3 point champ in 2011)
  • Joe Harris (good looking white rookie from Virginia)
  • Matthew Dellavedova (Aussie hustle)
  • Shawn Marion (4x NBA all star)
  • Tristan Thompson (selected 4th in 2011 NBA draft)
  • Ray Allen (soon)

Incredible. The fact that the 2008-2009 team went 66-16 may be the biggest miracle in sports history. Look at that squad! Compare the two rosters and it’s honestly hard to see the Cavs finishing below 70 wins this season. Vegas has the OVER/UNDER on Cavs wins this season set at 58.5. Here’s a little Bottlegate advice for you- HAMMER the over and thank me later while we’re Scrooge McDucking into our riches.

PS- The second all of our posts go live, they’re posted HERE. We’re fun I swear.

PPS- If someone doesn’t buy me this Kevin Love shirt, then I have lost faith in all of our readers

PPPS- Hi new readers, welcome to Bottlegate. Can I get you something to drink? Take your shoes off, stay awhile and explore the site.

  1. Mike, your sarcasm (which I hope is what you were going for and if so makes the rest of point mute) in your description of LeBron James makes you sound like an idiot.
