The Cleveland Cavaliers have had little to be excited about this season as they are currently the worst team in the NBA and they are now infamous for their record losing streak. But after ending the streak against the Clippers and shocking the struggling Lakers last night in a 104-99 win, perhaps the Cavs would be better suited playing only teams from L.A.
Obviously, the Lakers are going through some turmoil as they started the road trip 4-0 and lost the last 3 with the last 2 losses being embarrassing. But the highlight of the night, comes from little known Cavalier Christian Eyenga. Eyenga was the Cavaliers 1st round pick in 2009 (30th overall) and he hails from the Congo. At 21 years old, this is his first season in the NBA after spending time developing as a basketball player.
While his athleticism smacks you in the face, he is extremely raw as he has very little experience in organized basketball. Perhaps the silver lining in the Cavaliers horrendous season has been the ability to provide young players like Eyenga and Manny Harris the opportunity to play extended minutes to help them develop ahead of schedule.
Who knows if he will end up developing into a solid NBA player or not, but after watching this highlight the rest of the country will know why we call him Sky-Enga!
