In the mind of John Wall, LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers deliberately landed the No. 2 seed last year to avoid playing the Washington Wizards.

No. Seriously.

Last year during the regular season, Cleveland beat Washington twice in three chances, though the one win for Wall and Co. did come late in the season as both teams were gearing up towards the playoffs.

And while it’s true that Washington does have the ability to score in transition and pushed Boston to seven games, we’re not convinced Cleveland was dodging the Wizards.
