In the span of a few hours, the Washington Wizards lost their leading scorer, their on-court leader and maybe their season. Taking the court only hours after star guard Gilbert Arenas was suspended indefinitely by NBA commissioner David Stern, the Wizards were beaten 121-98 by the Cleveland Cavaliers on Wednesday night, a possible preview of darker days ahead for Washington. LeBron James piled up 23 points, eight assists and seven rebounds in just three quarters, and Shaquille O’Neal added 17 points in 17 minutes as the Cavaliers took no mercy on the Wizards and posted a season-high for points to win for the 13th time in 15 games. As expected, LeBron James debuted the CavFanatic version of his latest signature sneakers – Nike Air Max LeBron VII. It’s a predominantly Wine colorway with patent leather toebox, White outsole and swoosh and Yellow minor details. There’s no word on a possible release. Stay tuned for more updates.
