In a season that’s been absolutely dismal for the Cavaliers, they may have stumbled upon a player who can help them — the “pop-a-shot” guy.
Wracked with injuries and dealing with the aftermath of a less-talented roster, the Cavaliers have been dragged to a 19-56 record, which could possibly be a record for most losses sustained by a team who made a FInals appearance the previous season.
The bright spot is that they’re in the think of things in the “Zion Sweepstakes,” but that potential help won’t arrive until next season. The Cavaliers need help right now, and, believe it or not, they may have stumbled upon a player who could give them some desperately needed shooting here-and-now.
I’m talking about the “pop-a-shot” guy.
“Pop-a-shot” guy is actually Jay, who was competing against Cody in the middle of a timeout in the “pop-a-shot” content. Each player had 30 seconds to make as many shots as possible, with each made basket costing 1 point. Cody racked up 19 points, which was impressive, and would have been a hard number for anyone to beat.
But Jay isn’t “anyone.”
He went to the pop-a-shot court, knowing the score he needed to beat, and began to mow down Cody’s score. By the 19 second mark, he had easily beat Cody, but Jay wanted more. He wanted to be a record-setter in this contest, and he did.
When the 30 seconds were up, Jay hadn’t missed a shot on his way to scoring 56 points, setting a Cavaliers record for most points scored in the “pop-a-shot” contest, and scoring 25 more points than what the Cavaliers had scored up until that point.
Jay can easily make his claim that he’s the “pop-a-shot” king of Cleveland, and maybe the Cavaliers front office should make a 10-day contract offer to this guy.
Hey, it’s not like they have anything to lose this season?
