The lose tonight that Cavaliers suffered at the hands of the San Antonio Spurs may have been enough to push Byron Scott over the edge. Coach Scott is disgusted with the lack of competitiveness his Cavs are playing with these days. Scott used certain words of anatomy to describe what his young Cavaliers team is playing without. Scott can take a lot from his young team, a total lack of effort is UN-forgivable in Scott’s eyes.
Byron Scott knows his team may not be ready to go out and dominate the NBA yet, what he is sick and tired of is the fact the Cavs aren’t even competing at this point in the season and Scott is having a hard time figuring out the reason why. The Cavaliers lost to the Spurs tonight by 35 points. Cleveland hasn’t been able to play teams close at all in the past seven games. The Cavaliers have lost 11 of their last 12 games, the Cavaliers don’t look like they can win another game the rest of this season.
Scott may not expect them to win, he does how-ever expect these guys who get a check to go out and play NBA basketball to get their butts out on the floor and compete. Right now he is not getting that and Scott and the Cavaliers owner are getting tired of it. The Cavaliers lost some guys to injury and Scott knows this. What he doesn’t know is why the team can’t even compete and it is really starting to get to Coach Scott. For the team sake I hope they can figure it out before Byron Scott buries his foot up someones hind end.
