A lot can happen in 52 years. When the Cleveland Cavaliers hoisted their NBA Championship trophy and paraded through their beautiful city (laughs hysterically), they did something that many thought would never happen. Not because they didn’t believe it should happen, but because of the curse.
So without going into any detail let’s consider all the great people that did great things in a shorter period of time than 52 years: Napoleon Boneparte, Steve McQueen, John Lennon, Edgar Allan Poe, Jane Austen, Elvis Presley, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Marvin Gaye, Freddie Mercury, Albert Camus, Nat King Cole, Judy Garland, Arthur Ashe, Joey Ramone, Bruce Lee, John Belushi, Chris Farley, Andy Kaufman, Old Dirty Bastard, Eva Peron, Mozart, Stevie Ray Vaughn, van Gogh, Martin Luther King, Malcolm X, Buddy Holly, James Dean, Notorious B.I.G., Tupac, Kurt Cobain, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison, Bradley Nowell, and several others.
So there you have it, Cleveland. Gear up for another half century of misery and get all your dormat d-bag tendencies out of the way because it won’t happen again soon.
