The much anticipated matchup of LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony didn't live up to the hype last night. Bill Livingston of the Plain Dealer seems to be souring on the reign of King James already, noting, "I think Bird and Magic's rivalry is safe for the moment." The Cavs were booed during the closing minutes of their 93-89 loss while, "Together, Anthony and James, who make $108 million from Nike, scored 2 more points in the second half than the old woman who lived in a shoe."

Much as ESPN hypes these things, we have to remember that these are young guys who've been pro basketball players for a week. Maybe they'll play some exciting games against one another down the line, just not yet. After last year, I really don't think Cavs fans have anything to be bitter about either.
