Hoping For Cavaliers' Losses?

The Cavs have achieved what I had hoped they would — they have won 16 games, and so, notwithstanding the 26-game horror show, they will still not finish with either their worst record ever, or even tied for it, as two prior teams won only 15 games.

So now what? Do we hope that Cleveland loses their last five games? Do we really wish one of our teams to lose?

’Tis a dilemma, for sure.

Things would have been easier had Minnesota not chosen this time to have a metaphorical Metrodome roof collapse to their own season with 17 victories. The T-wolves have lost eleven straight and you have to figure they might “run the table”.

↵

If the Cavs “catch” Minnesota, they would each have the same number of chances by taking the average of the chances of the worst and second-worst teams and giving each team that “average”. In other words, less chances for Cleveland in a weighted system where only three times has the worst team even WON the Lottery, since 1990.

So Go Cavs!... I think... I am not so sure.
