Am I the only one that was disappointed by the way the Cleveland Cavalires played the last 90seconds of the 2010 Eastern Conference Semifinals? They were down by less than 10 and instead of fouling and trying to make it a game (which is what you would expect to see from ANY TEAM in that situation), they just stood around and let the Celtics run out the clock.

Sure I was rooting for the Celtics to win, but watching the Cavalires give up like that was just pathetic. Here is a quote that they should take to heart,

"Winning isn't everything, but the desire to win is."
Clearly they didn't have this desire, and it showed in those closing seconds. Did they think that because they had the best regular season record and the NBA MVP that all they had to do was show up in order to win?

On the topic of winning, here is a quote from Vince Lombardi,
"If winning isn't everything, why do they keep score?"
