Even though they have one of the best young backcourts in the league with Collin Sexton and Darius Garland, aside from a former All Star like Kevin Love, the Cleveland Cavaliers are destined to another losing season.
This time around they are under the coaching of John Beilein, a first time NBA coach that ran collegiate programs such as Western Virginia, Richmond and Michigan.
There appears to be more than just the normal growing pains in Cleveland after their shaky start of the season. According to Shams Charina of The Athletic, frustration is building among the Cavaliers’ players, and most of it is directed towards Beilein.
The unhappiness from the players about Beilein is a fact, since several members of the roster have said that he is treating the team as if it was a collegiate program. Cavaliers players are frustrated that Beilein is "nitpicking over basic fundamentals," and angst has grown with the way the offense is run.
"Guys drowned out his voice, and when guys start searching for the next in line for help, I believe you've lost them," one Cavs player said.
According to the report, the team has leaned on assistant coach J.B. Bickerstaff while working through its frustrations with Beilein. Bickerstaff was the former head coach of the Memphis Grizzlies and Houston Rockets.
