John Beilein said : “Thugz Mansion," songs during team workouts. Beilen said he meant to say "slugs" instead of "thugs," but that appeared to be the breaking point for the players. At that time, Barkley stood up for Beilein. "I never heard a bad word about Coach Beilein, ever," Barkley said. "One thing about basketball, everybody knows everybody. Everybody knows everybody in basketball. I've never heard a bad word about him and what makes me mad about this whole conversation, he said in his apology, the coaches told me later that I said slugs instead of thugs. If they were offended at the moment, they would've said something right, but they didn't do anything". Barkley closed out that rant by calling out their lack of success without LeBron James. The Cavs didn't win more than 33 games in a season after James first left the first time to go Miami and went 19-63 the season after James bolted for the Los Angeles Lakers following the 2017-18 season when leading them to a fourth consecutive NBA finals. "To complain about coach coming in trying to make y'all work on fundamentals when y'all stink," Barkley added. "Make y'all watch film, make y'all practice hard, this is starting to be a joke". On Thursday, Barkley slammed the players again as J.B. Bickerstaff will replace Beilein. The Cavaliers play Friday at Washington. "I'm so disgusted by those players trying to get that man fired," Barkley continued. "John Beilein is a hell of a coach and I think he's a good guy, but for those players to complain about we're practicing too hard, we're watching too much film because they stink, I just didn't think that was fair. When a coach is wrong, I'm going to call them out, when players are wrong, I'm going to call them out and I'm disgusted what the Cavaliers did to Coach Beilein". After a highly successful run as a college coach highlighted by two trips to the national title at Michigan (2013, 2018). Beilein took the head coach job in Cleveland after Cavs general manager Koby Altman reportedly interviewed nearly 10 NBA assistants. "First, John is a great human being. He cares deeply about his players and others who work for him and around him," said Dan Gilbert in a statement when Cleveland hired Beilein. "He defines the words class, integrity and character. He is a tireless worker who obsesses about finding better ways and the inches that will help his team and the organization grow. John is a brilliant basketball mind and last but not least, John Beilein is a winner". Nine months later, Beilein stepped down, or was "fired" as Barkley said. "Over these last nine months, I have given my all to this organization, but after much reflection, I have decided that it is best that I step back and resign from my position as head coach of the Cleveland Cavaliers and assist the organization in a different capacity,” External link

John Beilein said : “So excited about his energy that he’s going to bring to Cleveland and his desire to be here. Tremendous,” "First impression, very bright young man and understands the game. I think he brings a lot to us -- what he knows about the game as well. Really impressed with him so far. We are deeper right now. Look at our second squad right now with the defense they can play. Sometimes it’s one guy. Like adding a great cleanup hitter or a great leadoff hitter, there’s just one thing that changes the dynamic. We hope that’s what happens”. It was a light practice day at Cleveland Clinic Courts Saturday, but the Cavs did some live work. They went through actions on offense and defense, trying to get in as much as possible, hoping to get Drummond up to speed quickly ahead of his debut. “He threw a couple of really nice passes and just his talk on the floor was really good,” Beilein said when asked what surprised him. “Saw him pulling Collin (Sexton) aside and saying, ‘Listen, I’m going to set this angle screen if I see a guy guarding you this way.’ That was really good. Think he brings more than just this great 6-10 NBA body. He brings a lot of intangibles is what I sense after just knowing him not even 24 hours. He solves a lot of problems for a lot of teams I think”. Drummond stayed after, running through dummy sets with Sexton, Thompson, Larry Nance Jr., Dante Exum and assistant coaches Dan Geriot and J.J. Outlaw. Beilein was right there, watching and offering pointers. There was some high-low action with Nance. A few pick-and-roll sets with Sexton. Drummond’s first workout in his new digs finished alongside Nance, Thompson and Geriot -- at the usual big-man hoop, putting up shots from inside and outside the 3-point line. Teammates have already embraced Drummond, invited him into the post-practice shooting competition. That includes team leader Thompson, who excitedly spoke about Drummond’s arrival despite that forcing him to the bench. Thompson isn’t sweating the small stuff. He’s going to keep grinding away, trying to help the transition any way possible, for as long as he’s here -- even that means just the final 30 games of 2019-20. Drummond has the same attitude. “I’m not taking anybody’s job, I’m just here to play,” Drummond said. “I didn’t come here expecting anything. I’m just here to do my job, whatever they need me to do, I’ll get it done. Whether it’s being a starter or coming off the bench, whatever they need from me to help this team be successful, I’ll do it" External link

John Beilein said : “I feel there’s some centers now that are going to be hard to fit in the NBA game, and he’s not one of them, because he can pass, he finishes, he’s got a high IQ, and not everybody has to shoot it,” “If you look there’s some really great centers that don’t shoot 3s either that are key to their teams. So I think those things if he’s not a 3-point shooter, you can adjust and win with him” External link

They scored around four points per minute in the second quarter and then maybe two points per minute (in the second half). And we were better. We were moving the ball better. “Really proud of that group that started the second half. We didn’t change any schemes. We didn’t do anything differently. We really played with a lot of passion and energy. I thought great results through the whole second half. It wore off on everybody, even when we went back to bench and put some of the starters in. I thought they played better. Live and learn”. It was also about getting the youngsters to see the recipe. All of them are part of Cleveland’s core. But they weren’t playing the right way -- at either end. They weren’t making the proper plays on offense that Beilein has been stressing for weeks. They were too quiet on defense. So they went to the bench. And a permanent switch could be coming ahead of the road trip finale Friday night. “Duncan Robinson can really shoot -- breaking news. So how the heck do you get 12 shots off (in the first half) when that’s the deal? Sit down and watch and see if anyone else (can do better)," "He didn’t get shots off again, right? They didn’t run anything different. We didn’t. There’s an attention to detail that needed to be done”. Led by the new quintet, the second half was better. There was structure on offense and more intensity on defense. There was communication. The Cavs even won the third quarter. Only it was far too late. At least, on Wednesday night. Maybe that message will carry over to the next game. That’s what Beilein is hoping. Love spearheaded a second-half surge that came up well short. He finished with 25 points and 13 rebounds in 33 minutes. Sexton rebounded from a hideous start, finishing with 19 points on 8-of-16 shooting, extending his streak of double-figure scoring games to 37. Nance, making his first start in place of Thompson while also playing through a painful thumb injury, added 16 points, nine rebounds, two assists and two steals in 35 active minutes. Garland, the No. 5 pick of the 2019 NBA Draft who is expected to be a pillar of this rebuild, struggled once again. He finished with just 10 points on 4-of-12 shooting. Garland even played during mop-up duty, scoring five points in the final minute. Following a recent loss to Miami in Cleveland, Beilein praised the Heat. He even mentioned wanting the Cavs to emulate their team-oriented style. It’s easy to understand why. They are everything Cleveland isn’t right now. “A bunch of guys that all share the basketball and really shoot the ball well and play good defense,” Beilein said. “They have a culture here that started with Pat Riley a long time ago" External link

While Nance becomes the latest casualty for the Cavaliers in an injury-riddled start to the season -- playing without rookie Dylan Windler, Ante Zizic and John Henson -- the team is expected to have Zizic debut, strengthening the frontline a bit for a tough matchup against the long, athletic Sixers.

John Beilein said : “Thugz Mansion," songs during team workouts. Beilen said he meant to say "slugs" instead of "thugs," but that appeared to be the breaking point for the players. At that time, Barkley stood up for Beilein. "I never heard a bad word about Coach Beilein, ever," Barkley said. "One thing about basketball, everybody knows everybody. Everybody knows everybody in basketball. I've never heard a bad word about him and what makes me mad about this whole conversation, he said in his apology, the coaches told me later that I said slugs instead of thugs. If they were offended at the moment, they would've said something right, but they didn't do anything". Barkley closed out that rant by calling out their lack of success without LeBron James. The Cavs didn't win more than 33 games in a season after James first left the first time to go Miami and went 19-63 the season after James bolted for the Los Angeles Lakers following the 2017-18 season when leading them to a fourth consecutive NBA finals. "To complain about coach coming in trying to make y'all work on fundamentals when y'all stink," Barkley added. "Make y'all watch film, make y'all practice hard, this is starting to be a joke". On Thursday, Barkley slammed the players again as J.B. Bickerstaff will replace Beilein. The Cavaliers play Friday at Washington. "I'm so disgusted by those players trying to get that man fired," Barkley continued. "John Beilein is a hell of a coach and I think he's a good guy, but for those players to complain about we're practicing too hard, we're watching too much film because they stink, I just didn't think that was fair. When a coach is wrong, I'm going to call them out, when players are wrong, I'm going to call them out and I'm disgusted what the Cavaliers did to Coach Beilein". After a highly successful run as a college coach highlighted by two trips to the national title at Michigan (2013, 2018). Beilein took the head coach job in Cleveland after Cavs general manager Koby Altman reportedly interviewed nearly 10 NBA assistants. "First, John is a great human being. He cares deeply about his players and others who work for him and around him," said Dan Gilbert in a statement when Cleveland hired Beilein. "He defines the words class, integrity and character. He is a tireless worker who obsesses about finding better ways and the inches that will help his team and the organization grow. John is a brilliant basketball mind and last but not least, John Beilein is a winner". Nine months later, Beilein stepped down, or was "fired" as Barkley said. "Over these last nine months, I have given my all to this organization, but after much reflection, I have decided that it is best that I step back and resign from my position as head coach of the Cleveland Cavaliers and assist the organization in a different capacity,” External link

John Beilein said : “So excited about his energy that he’s going to bring to Cleveland and his desire to be here. Tremendous,” "First impression, very bright young man and understands the game. I think he brings a lot to us -- what he knows about the game as well. Really impressed with him so far. We are deeper right now. Look at our second squad right now with the defense they can play. Sometimes it’s one guy. Like adding a great cleanup hitter or a great leadoff hitter, there’s just one thing that changes the dynamic. We hope that’s what happens”. It was a light practice day at Cleveland Clinic Courts Saturday, but the Cavs did some live work. They went through actions on offense and defense, trying to get in as much as possible, hoping to get Drummond up to speed quickly ahead of his debut. “He threw a couple of really nice passes and just his talk on the floor was really good,” Beilein said when asked what surprised him. “Saw him pulling Collin (Sexton) aside and saying, ‘Listen, I’m going to set this angle screen if I see a guy guarding you this way.’ That was really good. Think he brings more than just this great 6-10 NBA body. He brings a lot of intangibles is what I sense after just knowing him not even 24 hours. He solves a lot of problems for a lot of teams I think”. Drummond stayed after, running through dummy sets with Sexton, Thompson, Larry Nance Jr., Dante Exum and assistant coaches Dan Geriot and J.J. Outlaw. Beilein was right there, watching and offering pointers. There was some high-low action with Nance. A few pick-and-roll sets with Sexton. Drummond’s first workout in his new digs finished alongside Nance, Thompson and Geriot -- at the usual big-man hoop, putting up shots from inside and outside the 3-point line. Teammates have already embraced Drummond, invited him into the post-practice shooting competition. That includes team leader Thompson, who excitedly spoke about Drummond’s arrival despite that forcing him to the bench. Thompson isn’t sweating the small stuff. He’s going to keep grinding away, trying to help the transition any way possible, for as long as he’s here -- even that means just the final 30 games of 2019-20. Drummond has the same attitude. “I’m not taking anybody’s job, I’m just here to play,” Drummond said. “I didn’t come here expecting anything. I’m just here to do my job, whatever they need me to do, I’ll get it done. Whether it’s being a starter or coming off the bench, whatever they need from me to help this team be successful, I’ll do it" External link

John Beilein said : "That’s like four straight games. We’re way down -- 13 down -- at the end of the first quarter. Do the math on that and it’s a 52-point loss. Couldn’t keep going that way. They scored around four points per minute in the second quarter and then maybe two points per minute (in the second half). And we were better. We were moving the ball better. “Really proud of that group that started the second half. We didn’t change any schemes. We didn’t do anything differently. We really played with a lot of passion and energy. I thought great results through the whole second half. It wore off on everybody, even when we went back to bench and put some of the starters in. I thought they played better. Live and learn”. It was also about getting the youngsters to see the recipe. All of them are part of Cleveland’s core. But they weren’t playing the right way -- at either end. They weren’t making the proper plays on offense that Beilein has been stressing for weeks. They were too quiet on defense. So they went to the bench. And a permanent switch could be coming ahead of the road trip finale Friday night. “Duncan Robinson can really shoot -- breaking news. So how the heck do you get 12 shots off (in the first half) when that’s the deal? Sit down and watch and see if anyone else (can do better)," "He didn’t get shots off again, right? They didn’t run anything different. We didn’t. There’s an attention to detail that needed to be done”. Led by the new quintet, the second half was better. There was structure on offense and more intensity on defense. There was communication. The Cavs even won the third quarter. Only it was far too late. At least, on Wednesday night. Maybe that message will carry over to the next game. That’s what Beilein is hoping. Love spearheaded a second-half surge that came up well short. He finished with 25 points and 13 rebounds in 33 minutes. Sexton rebounded from a hideous start, finishing with 19 points on 8-of-16 shooting, extending his streak of double-figure scoring games to 37. Nance, making his first start in place of Thompson while also playing through a painful thumb injury, added 16 points, nine rebounds, two assists and two steals in 35 active minutes. Garland, the No. 5 pick of the 2019 NBA Draft who is expected to be a pillar of this rebuild, struggled once again. He finished with just 10 points on 4-of-12 shooting. Garland even played during mop-up duty, scoring five points in the final minute. Following a recent loss to Miami in Cleveland, Beilein praised the Heat. He even mentioned wanting the Cavs to emulate their team-oriented style. It’s easy to understand why. They are everything Cleveland isn’t right now. “A bunch of guys that all share the basketball and really shoot the ball well and play good defense,” Beilein said. “They have a culture here that started with Pat Riley a long time ago" External link

While Nance becomes the latest casualty for the Cavaliers in an injury-riddled start to the season -- playing without rookie Dylan Windler, Ante Zizic and John Henson -- the team is expected to have Zizic debut, strengthening the frontline a bit for a tough matchup against the long, athletic Sixers.
