Source — Following the Cleveland Cavaliers‘ 118-108 loss to the Golden State Warriors on Monday, multiple players acknowledged growing discontent and a strong sense of concern that unlike past seasons, the team does not have the capability to fix its problems and get back on a championship track.
Several prominent players, speaking on condition of anonymity to ESPN, Cleveland.com and The Athletic, expressed doubt that the problems — an aging roster, defensively challenged personnel and a glut of redundant role players — could simply be worked out through patience and a chance to coalesce when fully healthy.
Well no shit! This team the way it is will do absolutely nothing. They play zero defense and when people were saying that IT will fix this team I couldn’t stop laughing. Thomas plays the least amount of defense and he is a liability when on the court.
The only guy who does play defense is Crowder and he is too busy helping everyone else that gets beat that is useless to even have him on the court. He isn’t knocking down the 3 ball and this Danny Ainge trade is looking better and better as the days go on.
I think the Raptors, Bucks and Celtics all beat this team in a 7 game series and unless something magical happens the Celtics will make the Finals from the East.
