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.

When You Give A Girl A Dad

You give her everything
10071

They say that any male can be a father, but it takes a special person to be a dad. That dads are just the people that created the child, so to speak, but rather, dads raise their children to be the best they can be. Further, when you give a little girl a dad, you give her much more than a father; you give her the world in one man.


When you give a girl a dad, you give her a rock.

Life is tough, and life is constantly changing directions and route. In a world that's never not moving, a girl needs something stable. She needs something that won't let her be alone; someone that's going to be there when life is going great, and someone who is going to be there for her when life is everything but ideal. Dads don't give up on this daughters, they never will.


When you give a girl a dad, you give her a role model.

If we never had someone to look up to, we would never have someone to strive to be. When you give a little girl someone to look up to, you give her someone to be. We copy their mannerisms, we copy their habits, and we copy their work ethic. Little girls need someone to show them the world, so that they can create their own.


When you give a girl a dad, you give her the first boy she will ever love.

And I'm not really sure someone will ever be better than him either. He's the first guy to take your heart, and every person you love after him is just a comparison to his endless, unmatchable love. He shows you your worth, and he shows you what your should be treated like: a princess.


When you give a girl a dad, you give her someone to make proud.

After every softball game, soccer tournament, cheerleading competition, etc., you can find every little girl looking up to their dads for their approval. Later in life, they look to their dad with their grades, internships, and little accomplishments. Dads are the reason we try so hard to be the best we can be. Dads raised us to be the very best at whatever we chose to do, and they were there to support you through everything. They are the hardest critics, but they are always your biggest fans.


When you give a girl a dad, you give her a credit card.

It's completely true. Dads are the reason we have the things we have, thank the Lord. He's the best to shop with too, since he usually remains outside the store the entire time till he is summoned in to forge the bill. All seriousness, they always give their little girls more than they give themselves, and that's something we love so much about you.


When you give a girl a dad, you give her a shoulder to cry on.

When you fell down and cut yourself, your mom looked at you and told you to suck it up. But your dad, on the other hand, got down on the ground with you, and he let you cry. Then later on, when you made a mistake, or broke up with a boy, or just got sad, he was there to dry your tears and tell you everything was going to be okay, especially when you thought the world was crashing down. He will always be there to tell you everything is going to be okay, even when they don't know if everything is going to be okay. That's his job.


When you give a girl a dad, you give her a lifelong best friend.

My dad was my first best friend, and he will be my last. He's stood by me when times got tough, he carried me when I just couldn't do it anymore, and he yelled at me when I deserved it; but the one thing he has never done was give up on me. He will always be the first person I tell good news to, and the last person I ever want to disappoint. He's everything I could ever want in a best friend and more.


Dads are something out of a fairytale. They are your prince charming, your knight in shinny amour, and your fairy godfather. Dads are the reasons we are the people we are today; something that a million "thank you"' will never be enough for.

The Baltimore Ravens: Can Joe Be 'Joe' again?

Is this it?
33
views

The Baltimore Ravens are in a unique position this season. Coming off a heartbreaking 9-7 season that was caused by a 77-yard touchdown pass, thrown by Cincinnati Bengals quarterback, Andy Dalton. Being one of the top defenses in the league last year, no one expected them to be bested by such an abysmal offense. However, the Ravens were only up by six points in the final quarter of that game. The Baltimore offense cannot bank on even their best defense ever to hold them in that sort of situation. The turn around of that scenario starts in the offseason. It starts with veteran quarterback Joe Flacco, and his overall production in the offense.

Arguably when Flacco was at his best, he had a plethora of weapons at his disposal. The year he won Super Bowl MVP (2012), Flacco had explosive receivers such as Anquan Bolin and Torey Smith. Both of those men totaled 1,000 yards plus each that season, and had multiple individual successes in other seasons. For the past three seasons, Flacco has had only one receiver with over 1,000 yards. Flacco's average QBR (quarterback rating) over the past few season has been around an 81. This rather average rating is coupled with 62 touchdown passes and 42 interceptions. The offensive weaponry has clearly run very thin. Considering the recent offseason acquisitions, this may no longer be an excuse for the Super Bowl QB's average performance.

Flacco currently has three more years on his huge 120 million dollar contract (that he was given after his Super Bowl season). This contract does guarantee that he will have the starting job for that time. There is reasonable suspicion to believe that if Flacco doesn't perform above his current plateau, he will not be awarded a resign. This is because of offseason acquisitions such as Michael Crabtree and John Brown. These two receivers add experience and speed to an otherwise non-explosive group of players. If Joe cannot turn these men into 'stat-stuffers', his job could be toast.

According to Ravens officials, Joe Flacco has been looking amazing in voluntary workouts. His previous back issues have seemed to resolve itself, as have his issues with speed of the snap. Thar does sound quite encouraging, however Joe is looking to possibly have more pressure on his shoulders. All-Pro receiver Dez Bryant is considering accepting an offer from Baltimore. If this occurs, Joe will have one less excuse on his play quality.
