Before winning a couple games over the weekend (the latest with its own drama), the Cavaliers had lost three straight to bring their March record to 6-10. LeBron James even said “We’re just in a bad spot” – quote Bleacher Report highlighted on its Instagram page:


Among those who liked that post: Stephen Curry.

Is Curry reveling in Cleveland’s turmoil?

Ethan Sherwood Strauss of ESPN:

That said, I’m not totally convinced. There is a pettiness in the LeBron-Curry rivalry.
