25 Things Every Cavs Fan Is Saying This Week

Cavs in seven, baby.

The NBA finals are in full swing and a lot of trash talking has been done on all sides, whether someone's regular season team is in the top two or they've chosen a team to cheer for, everyone has something to say. Here are a handful of things you'll hear every Cleveland Cavaliers fan say this week between games four and five.

1. Cavs in 7

It's the most common because it's the truth (hopefully).

2. Playoff Lebron is here

It's a whole other level.

3. Believeland, baby

Anything is possible in believeland.

4. Kyrie finally showed up to the playoffs

And just in time.

5. They really thought they were going to sweep us?

Nah, the Cavs don't go down that easy.

6. Someone needs to punch Green

Look, you might not like hearing it, but it's true.

7. Tristan Thompson was a beast last game

He almost doubled all of his stats from the last three games combined (which, he should have, he didn't play very well the first three games).

8. Warriors are about to blow another 3-1 lead

The jokes are never going to stop.

9. Where did Zaza Pachulia come from?

And can we send him back? I'd never heard of him before this year and would be happy to never hear about him again.

10. Since when are you allowed to yell at the referees?

Green has been acting this way for a while. Maybe give him a T to discourage it?

11. Speaking of technicals... Now two of them don't get you ejected?

Good to know, for when someone on our team gets more than one.

12. Also, we're not going with rule of thumb that the score table is always right anymore

Yeah, we're salty about the change of that call to keep Green in the game, miscommunication or not.

13. So when does KD decide to switch to our team?

We expected him in the locker room after the first half of game 3.

14. JR Smith, what a guy

He's ready to fight, he's ready to drain threes. He's ready to be the man we all need.

15. The Warriors will be the first team to blow a 3-0 lead

Last year, 3-1. This year 3-0.

16. We're playing record-setting basketball

Most points in a half? Check. Biggest comeback in playoffs history? Working on it.

17. Warriors suck

We know they're actually a super team with some of the best players in the league, but to us they still suck right now.

18. We need this Kyrie for the rest of the series

The legendary face.

19. They can kick out a fan but not Draymond Green?

Yeah, we're still salty about that.

20. Can't come back if you're not behind

Lebron knows the people love an underdog.

21. Steph and his stupid mouth guard are going down

Seriously, just keep it in your mouth. Everyone else does.

22. They thought they were going to sweep us

JR's face says it all.

23. Richard Jefferson has been inspirational

The best thing since Richard Jefferson in the 2016 Playoffs.

24. K Love is going to go off in game 5

We can feel it, it's time. He's just waiting a little bit.

25. If anyone can do it, it's our boys

Cavs in 7, baby.

Top 5 Nike NBA City Edition Jerseys

The best looks from Nike's second alternate jersey batch.

Nike's takeover of the NBA has been an up and down ride to this point. Although the on-court products are extremely aesthetically pleasing, there have been quality concerns, with numerous ripped jerseys and the lack of special Christmas Day uniform editions for the first time since 2011, a tradition that NBA fans have come to love. However, Nike's idea of visually representing the passion, culture, and voice of each city has inspired some of the most unique jerseys in years, and here's the five best of an exciting bunch.

5. Milwaukee Bucks

The cream color combined with the logo as the centerpiece makes this jersey absolutely fantastic, and it's going to look great on television.

4. Golden State Warriors

Effectively capturing the vibe of such a free-flowing and culturally distinct place such as San Francisco was always going to be difficult, but the Warriors got it spot on here. The Chinese influence is clearly present alongside a crisp homage to the Bay Area, and the Warriors status as the only team that bridges the gap between San Francisco, Oakland, and San Jose.

3. Utah Jazz

As a complete 180 from the Jazz' typical blue, green, and gold look, this stark contrast of a uniform should be used as often as possible. The ascending color scheme gives off the vibe of a rising altitude, a perfect encapsulation of Salt Lake City and the mountain lifestyle present there. The design on the right sleeve further displays this sweet tribute to Utah.

2. Washington Wizards

If you had told me that the cleanest look of the City Edition jerseys would also have said "The District of Columbia" on it in its entirety, I would've told you that you were crazy. However, a crisp white jersey alongside a brilliant use of red stripes down either side combined with easily the best number font in the NBA this season gives the nation's capital another great look to add to its already-stellar collection.

1. Los Angeles Lakers

Although this one took a while to grow on me, as a Lakers fan, this jersey is simply too sweet to pass up at the number one spot. Designed by the ultimate Laker legend himself, Kobe Bryant, a player good enough to have two jerseys retired in his honor, the "Black Mamba look tips its cap to the latest era of Hollywood dominance, with Kobe bringing 5 titles back home to SoCal. The snake scales combined with the return of the Magic Johnson-era block numbers create an epic silhouette of the past, and the 24 (Kobe's number) on the belt look like both a snake and "LA". It's absolutely brilliant and is easily the Lakers best black look since they began regularly utilizing black alternates on "Hollywood Nights", and I can't wait to sit down and watch a game at Staples with these unis on the court.

If Medically Cleared, Gordon Hayward Should Still Stay Out For This Season

After suffering an injury like that, there's no need to rush back at all. The NBA continues to pray for you, Gordon.

It's hard to believe that it's only been almost three months since Celtics Gordon Hayward suffered a horrific ankle injury back in October. Since then, basketball fans have been able to catch a few glimpses into Hayward's progress--along with a few reports noting his recovery going well--mainly consisting of him in a cast and sitting on a bench.

However, last Wednesday Celtics general manager Danny Ainge subtly teased us that Hayward isn't wearing his ankle brace:

First of all - ?!?!?!?!?!!?!?!?!??!?!?!!?!?

Second of all - Gordon, please. Don't. tease. us.

With this new image and rumors of his return later in the season floating about, it all comes down to the question: "Should he return this season?"

And the answer to that is -- NO.

Boston is (as of Jan. 10) 33-10, ranking No. 1 in the Eastern Conference while also beating the conference rival the Cleveland Cavaliers by five and a half games.

They have quickly adjusted with their new team of Kyrie Irving, Jaylen Brown, Jayson Tatum, Al Horford and just about everyone else on the team. They've learned how to effectively utilize their weapons thanks to their stupendous head coach Brad Stevens.

Gordon, there's no need to rush at all.

Injuries are one of the most traumatic experiences anyone can go through and, especially in his case, it's something that no one should rush back from.

Of course there's always going to be the argument of: "But the Golden State Warriors are still their biggest threat, how will the Celtics do it without Hayward?"

The simple answer to that is, they still can. Can we maybe just stop doubting teams for one second?

Boston is trailing right behind Golden State; don't act like they don't have the talent and hustle to catch up.

Besides, if Hayward does return this season, he most likely won't be 100% healthy by then, thus risking the possibility of not even having a chance to make a championship run with his new team.

Long story short, he has three more years on his contract, he's still relatively young and the team is still young. I don't see what the rush is.
