This only comes a few days after reports surfaced that there were issues between the front office and Tyronn Lue.
“I don’t think you define culture off of wins and losses,” Lue said. “I think you define culture on how the organization is a class-A organization, and with Dan Gilbert at the helm it’s always going to be that way. I think it’s about the players you bring in. It’s about your coaching staff and who you surround the people with, so, culture is not defined by wins and losses.”
Per The Athletic‘s Joe Vardon, there’s been growing issues in the locker room, via Tristan Thompson:
“You can play hard but play like a chicken with your head cut off and look like a damn idiot out there,” Thompson said.”We’ve got to follow our schemes.” To whom do you think he’s referring? The “vets,” to use his word? Not likely. “At the end of the day, the only guys who really know what’s expected, every night, are myself, of course, Kev and Swish (Smith). Everyone else has been one-year, two-year guys. They don’t know the culture of being a Cavalier and what it takes and what’s expected and what the fans expect when you put on that jersey.”
Obviously, this is going to have huge ramifications for the franchise. Does this mean they will rebuild or ship Kevin Love or what?
