Cleveland Toasts LeBron After Second Loss to Phoenix

CLEVELAND - LeBron James is about to get roasted - first by the Suns, and now by the fans.

The Phoenix Suns, whose 16-game winning streak is the NBA's longest since 2000, locked in their 17th straight win against the Cleveland Cavaliers Sunday afternoon.

Cleveland advances to 25-19, 15-6 at home. The Suns are now 36-8, 17-5 away.

Lets not talk about the loss at home again.

James' foundation is hosting a celebrity roast and comedy program on Sunday night in honor of Cleveland's superstar forward, who is usually the one making others look silly with his moves on the floor.

Comedians Cedric the Entertainer, Paul Rodriguez, Ralphie May and Mo'Nique as well as Cavaliers guard and resident team clown Damon Jones will all take their turns poking fun at King James.

"I think it's going to be fun and funny," said James, who promised he wouldn't attempt to retaliate at any of the pointed humor. "Absolutely not. I'm not going up there."

Portion of proceeds for the $1,000-per-ticket event at the Cleveland Marriott will go to Boys Hope Girls Hope in Cleveland and the James Family Foundation. Before the jokes start flying, the Cavaliers will host the Suns, who beat Cleveland 109-90 on Jan. 12.
