The Cavs are spiraling and everyone's pissed at everyone.
Fans should consider targeting their rage at owner Dan Gilbert, not only for fleecing the public out of millions of dollars for arena upgrades so that he can more capably sell the franchise (which he intends to do, according to rumor), but also, critically, for failing to negotiate a deal with General Manager David Griffin, the man who built the Cavs' championship roster.
With young Koby Altman on the phone negotiating trades, it's hard to muster much confidence in a deal before the deadline that'll sufficiently transform the roster.
Anyway, after a recent tense team meeting in which Isaiah Thomas reportedly got in Kevin Love's ear about dipping early from the OKC thrashing after falling ill, the national sports pundits have all taken the opportunity to weigh in on the Cavs' ongoing soap opera.
Here's Shannon Sharpe, on what is supposed to be a very bad show, assuming the persona of Kevin Love to talk trash about the Cavs' supporting cast. I.T., Derrick Rose, J.R. Smith, Jae Crowder and Tristan Thompson are all bashed. Not even LeBron is spared in this tirade, but Thomas takes the brunt.
The video's making the rounds on social media and, based on comments, seems like a pretty cathartic viewing experience. Enjoy!
