    Someone didn't think this one through. Ridiculous.

    As I have said countless times, nothing good ever comes from Cleveland.

    I thought it was funny. I personally didn't think it was that big of a deal but I get why people don't like it. Doesn't move me any though. It's a parody of Dirty Dancing. I thought it was funny.

    Wow! Talk about a PR nightmare. Something like this may only be done in Cleveland; what idiots.

    I thought it was funny. It's not like he beat her; he just misjudged her jump!

    I am with you Djason, I didn't think it was a big deal. However, I can't believe the Cavs did it. If they wanted to go there, they could have shown a replay of it where she landed on a bed and something else positive but wow.

    So roughing a woman up a little bit is okay?

    I felt that there was some humor to it, but given all the issues with domestic violence in professional sports over the past couple of years, it is risky IMO.

    No argument there. You'd hope that they'd have had some more common sense after watching the skit but I also understand the mindset of not having malicious intent behind it. I think it is harmless but they should have been smarter and used more common sense than airing this publicly. With all of the domestic violence awareness campaigns going on these days they should have known this skit isn't a good idea. Even SNL isn't doing skits like this.

    It was funny though. "You're a Bulls fan???"

    Actually watch the end of that part, he actually throws her to the side and downwards. Thats where this gets bad.

    If Im the Bull's I hope my legal team has already filed the lawsuit against the Cav's for this.

    Hopefully the NBA takes a strong stance an this and goes after the Cav's Management and ownership team.
