Cavs GM Calls Out Team for ‘Terrible’ Play

Chris Grant, the general manager of the sputtering 16-29 Cleveland Cavaliers, ripped his team in the media (calling their play in a recently-concluded home stand “terrible.”) Per the Akron Beacon Journal:

“The lack of effort is just not acceptable,” Grant said. “It’s not who we are and who we want to be. It’s got to be addressed head on. There’s no excuses for that, but we’ve seen our guys compete and execute consistently and that’s really what we’ve got to do a better job of.”

Grant’s appearance in front of the media Wednesday was rare. It’s just the second time during his tenure, which dates back to the summer of 2010, he addressed reporters in season when it didn’t relate to a trade or trade deadline.

The only other time was Dec. 10, 2010, when the Cavs were in the midst of losing 36 of 37 games.

“We’re in a tough stretch,” Grant said. “We came off that West Coast trip and that Denver game. We played good basketball. We played really good basketball and even in this tough stretch we’ve played a half or two of good basketball. Unfortunately, we haven’t played two full halves. All we can do is continue to stress and push that. We know it’s there because we’ve done it and we have to hold people accountable to it.”

    terrible play, terrible coach, terrible free agent signings, terrible draft choices, terrible gm, terrible (to say the least) owner, terrible city, terrible fans, terrible state… so when can Kyrie leave for Miami?!

    Thats just retarded. LeBron and Kyrie are nothing alike in personalities . LeBron went there because of Wade his best buddy.Besides the point Kyrie is to expensive for Miami and there is really no better place for him that can pay for him and have his rotational spot and win. Miluakee Bucks and the Knicks are really the only teams that “need” him.

  • Ugh

    Are you saying there’s no better place to get paid have his spot and win than Cleveland?
