- John Beilein resigned as the Cleveland Cavaliers coach earlier this week.
- Beilein was a class act as he spoke to Cavs players before leaving and refused to blame the Cleveland front office.
- NBA legend Charles Barkley put the Cavaliers on blast, describing them as “ridiculous and unprofessional.”
As a Charles Barkley fan, it’s no shock that I agree percent with his view on how the Cleveland Cavaliers treated former coach John Beilein .
Cavs players had been making noise about coach Beilein being too hard on them during practice and forcing them to watch too much game tape. God forbid these guys are kept from their video games and iPhones and have to focus on their job. Maybe I could understand their complaints if they were successful.
A new coach probably won’t change the players’ attitudes. | Source:
the Cleveland Cavaliers have been terrible this year.
Barkley continued throwing truth bombs, saying:
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. Because they stink. I just didn’t think that was fair. When a coach is wrong, I’m going to call him out. When players are wrong, I’m going to call them out. I’m disgusted by what the Cavaliers did to coach Beilein.
To Barkley’s Dismay, John Beilein Left on Cordial Terms John Beilein left the Cavaliers on good terms.
He did not bash the organization or the players. Charles Barkley thinks he should’ve have gone out swinging:
He should have went out saying, ‘Y’all a bunch of damn losers, I’m glad to get the hell out of here.’
Regardless of how Beilein left, it’s apparent that there’s a big problem in the Cavaliers organization, one that yet another coaching change won ‘t fix.
With the old-fashioned, out-of-touch coach gone, who are the players going to blame now? Luckily, they still have one more scapegoat before they have to look directly at themselves.
