​It was LeBron and a bunch of trash bags against the Indiana Pacers in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference playoff series between the No. 4 and No. 5 seeds. 


How many times did we hear LeBron and Co. were going to sweep their way into the second round? And through the entire "weak East" maybe?


For all of you who made that prediction, you were proven wrong in the fastest way possible. 

The Pacers embarrassed the Cavs in Cleveland by a score of 98-80, and everyone's got something to say about this. And how could you not? The Cavs looked like the No. 12 seed in the East with no business even sniffing the playoffs.

That was the first time in LBJ's last 21 first-round playoff games that he lost.


Let the LeBron-leaving-Cleveland rumors heat up faster than ever before!

Ah, wait! The sweepstakes are over!

For the majority of this one, LeBron seemed to be the only guy on the court doing anything. J.R. Smith was the only other Cavs player who showed any promise (mostly on contested trash), and here's how we can sum up the rest of the performances:

Any update on Ty Lue?

But let's face it, LeBron wasn't great either. The Pacers are clearly an inferior team. LeBron is arguably the best player on the planet, and he shouldn't be hesitating to go to the rack as well as constantly passing it to teammates that can't make shots.


Come on, man.

On top of that, how do you let THIS happen?!

And when you get out-performed by Victor Oladipo at home, you better expect the trolls to come out HARD.

But don't worry, LeBron fans still have some ammo after this one that should get them zero leverage in ANY argument.

If that's all you got, you're in trouble.


Expect LeBron fans to be on full tilt.
