This is magical thinking. The Cavs have more issue than a change in coaches will fix. KPJ lost his **** and had to get shipped out. The Allen trade, which was still the right move, sent Drummond off the deep end. Nance has played 34 games. Love has only played in 16 games and has been in NBA shape for none of them? We've gone the entire season without a legitimate NBA-caliber backup PG. Cedi had the worst season of his career. Windler failed to meet expectations (a tiny bit of this might be on coaching). Prince turned out to be exactly who he was when we traded for him - a streaky shooter who isn't a net positive when his shot isn't falling. We've played bench units that consisted primarily of G League guys during multiple games this season.

All of this is before you get into the fact that starting Garland and Sexton together really strains your ability to get stops and the starting lineup doesn't have enough offensively without both of them to beat anyone.

based on your opinion only... which in this case is pretty far removed from the same galaxy that this org is operating in
JBB is not the only problem for sure, but I have seen teams that needed more rope like this several times over the years and it is always the same thing. Nobody needs to be coached at the same level. Okoro might need JBB in his ear all game or maybe somebody else but in the end Sexton and garland for sure played better without it.
This is so absurd I don't know where to begin. Seriously, how good do you think the Cavs, or any team, not Sexton himself, but the team, is going to be with Sexton doing whatever he wants? How many more loses is it going to take?

But I already know the answer and it's infinite loses because you'll always find an excuse. His teammates, the roster, the coaching, etc.

Again, the NBA is a professional league and maybe 5-10 players are good enough to do whatever they want and still win. The rest of them have to work on those parts of their games they'd rather ignore, listen to the coaches, and do what's best for the team.

Sexton is maybe 75% the player Kyrie is and Kyrie on his own isn't leading even a good team anywhere.

Your Sexton hate is real...
He is better than Kyrie by every measure at the same time in the league. Go back and look at Kyrie Irvings stats his first 3 seasons.
I was talking about this team playing loose when Garland and Sexton are free and it was blatantly obvious to everyone apparently except for you. I'm out

Sexton is better than Kyrie now. Playground basketball is better than organized basketball.

It is highly unlikely that the Cavs will agree with your Kevin Love evaluation for the purpose of a trade.
