With the All-Star break in the rear view mirror, it’s time to take a look back at the most ridiculous moments of the NBA season.
We’ve compiled the best moments from this past season in the following article.
The Most Annoying Moment of the 2015-16 NBA Season: The Cleveland Cavaliers’ LeBron James was so obnoxious on Tuesday night that he ended up being booed on the court.
James’ boos were so loud that the fans at Cleveland’s Quicken Loans Arena had to be restrained from clapping or even cheering during the game, and the entire crowd started chanting “lock him up!” when James was called for an offensive foul.
The Cavs had already gotten off to a slow start, losing the first four games of the season, but this wasn’t the end of the Cavs’ woes.
They lost two of their final three games of February, including a loss to the Lakers that put them back in a tie with the Brooklyn Nets for the eighth seed in the Eastern Conference.
The Cavs were losing by 20 points a night to start the month, and James was playing at a career-low 27.1 points per game, which ranked 22nd in the league.
James and Cleveland’s offense were still capable of producing enough points to take over games, but they couldn’t make up for their offensive woes on defense.
In a game that was so close that James was only able to hit two free throws, the Cavs lost 107-104 to the Milwaukee Bucks, who would go on to win the series and make the NBA Finals.
On the season: The Cavs have won four games in a row, but have not won back-to-back games since March 8 and 10.
They’re 5-8 since March 5, and have not played in a home game since March 13, the third time they’ve lost a home contest in the last four weeks.
Kyrie Irving has been sidelined with a hamstring injury for the past week, and he’s been dealing with an ankle sprain that kept him out of the first five games of this season.
James has been the MVP of the Western Conference for most of the year, but he’s not getting his MVP vote in the East.
He’s the league’s leading scorer, but his shooting percentages are below 30 percent, and his PER is below 30.9, which ranks him 25th in the NBA.
James is averaging 23.3 points per contest, but has been limited to a career high-tying nine assists per game.
A lot of people think James should have won the MVP this season, especially since he’s had an injury history with the Cleveland Cavaliers.
He has averaged 22.5 points and 12.4 assists for the year.
James has been hurt before.
He injured his right knee in the second round of the 2014 playoffs against the Philadelphia 76ers and missed the next three games.
He was still able to make the playoffs after missing the previous five games, though, as he was named to the Eastern and Western Conference All-Defensive teams for his work in the fourth quarter.
“I think LeBron’s the MVP, but Kyrie Irving is a lot better,” said James, who finished with 21 points and 11 rebounds in the win over the 76ers.
“I don’t know why they put him in the MVP position.
They didn’t want to let him go in the playoffs.
That’s not the MVP.
I don’t get it.
I think he deserves it.”
This is James’ eighth straight All-NBA team.
He joined Kevin Durant (2011) as the only players in NBA history to lead the league in scoring and assists every season from 2005-2014.
James also has two All-Stars on his resume: Kevin Garnett (2005) and Russell Westbrook (2014).
James had to deal with the injury problems throughout the year for a team that lost four games by 20 or more points, but now he’s playing through his own injuries.
He had surgery on his right ankle in late January, and has missed two games with the ankle injury this season because of it.
He said he still feels fine and has been running at full speed.
When LeBron James is healthy, he’s one of the most entertaining players in the game.
But the Cavs are now in danger of being swept by a playoff-bound team.
What to Watch: The Eastern Conference has the most games left, with four games remaining.
The Cavs have five games left to make it to the playoffs, and that would be enough for them to make a deep run into the postseason.
The Thunder are on a four-game winning streak, and they’re 2-0 in their last three games against teams currently in the playoff race.
The Celtics have won five of their last six, including four straight and three of their four home games.
The Heat are 1-3, but beat the Lakers on Monday night and
