LeBron Gets 0wned

As of right now, Cleveland is getting clobbered 90-78 at the end of the 4th quarter.

It looks like he's done in Cleveland.  At the start of the season, they were supposed to have a cakewalk to the Finals.  They might not even make it past the 1st round.

This is game 1, round 1?

Yes, game 1, round 1.  They lost by 18 at home vs the #4 seed.  That isn't what you would expect of an NBA champion.

Cleveland had one of the worst defenses during the regular season.

They have a hard path to get back to the NBA finals.  They likely would have to beat Toronto and the 76ers, without home-field advantage.

It is just one game, but they are at risk for not making it out of the first round.

Why doesn’t any single person who attended Columbia University from 1981-83 remember Obama being a student during that time?

One person who did remember Mr. Obama was Michael L. Baron, who taught a senior seminar on international politics and American policy. Mr. Baron, now president of an electronics company in Florida, said he was Mr. Obama’s adviser on the senior thesis for that course. Mr. Baron, who later wrote Mr. Obama a recommendation for Harvard Law School, gave him an A in the course.

Well that's a funny choice since that is taken from a web SATIRE site, which then went on to claim that this "thesis" he wrote denounced the US Constitution:

> "The Constitution allows for many things, but what it does not allow is the most revealing. The so-called Founders did not allow for economic freedom. While political freedom is supposedly a cornerstone of the document, the distribution of wealth is not even mentioned. While many believed that the new Constitution gave them liberty, it instead fitted them with the shackles of hypocrisy."

This was spread around by dummies who failed to realize that the essay, the A grade, the political science professor who now ran a Florida electronics firm, and all the other claims were totally made up nonsense for an Onion style article clearly marked as such.

Columbia University themselves has stated, "an undergraduate thesis requirement for those in political science did not even exist at Columbia in 1983."

Also that's not his photo id, that's another photoshop gag made up by someone trying to pretend he was a "foreign student".
