Boston Public Library finally got to send a taunting, winning message to CPL. CPL's revenge was swift and beautiful, much like Game 4's Kyrie Irving led victory. Michael Young, marketing and communications at CPL, has been leading the development of the smack talk messages. He said inspiration can come from anywhere. For example, Celtics point guard Isaiah Thomas told the media he wasn't afraid of playing the Cavs because they weren't the MonSTARS from the movie "Space Jam". The quote led to this ingenious photo response from CPL. "It's a team effort," Young told Patch. "Although the concept for the photo usually comes from one person, help comes from all over the library. Help comes in many forms: retrieving the book, finding a similar titles if the spines aren't good for photographing, helping with setup, or tweaks to concept or props. Sometimes the ideas are inspired from events that occurred in the game." Last year, CPL only did a couple of book spine poetry posts talking trash on behalf of the Cavaliers, Young said. This year, the library hasn't held back. "Libraries aren't always expecting it," he said. "Indy was ready to trash talk immediately, sending a GIF on Twitter right after we posted our first photo. Boston seemed less prepared." However, the best may be yet to come. As the Cavs look to close out the Celtics in coming games, the Golden State Warriors await them in the NBA Finals. The two teams have met in the final round of the playoffs for two straight years, and could be tangoing again for the Larry O'Brien trophy in 2017. Young said he hopes that Oakland Public Library will be willing to trade some friendly trash talk over book spines and social media. "Cleveland fans look forward to playing Golden State. We each have set ourselves as the top dogs of the league. Now we jockey over who has the best fan base and the best team?" he said. Now the question will be, who has the best smack talking library?The CPL posts teasers of coming book spine smack talk on its Instagram page. Young hopes it inspires others to use literature to talk a little friendly trash. Photos from Cleveland Public Library Get free real-time news alerts from the Cleveland Patch.
