    He didn’t misspeak. Come on. At best, he said slug but slurred/didn’t annunciate and everyone thought he said thug. There is no way you say thug when you mean slow and lethargic/slug. 

    Why would he say "nice to see you aren't still playing like a bunch of thugs" when a) he supposedly meant slow & lethargic and b) unless I've missed something, the 2019/2020 version is as soft as the previous groups so thugs would be stupid to say.

    Why would you misspeak a word that doesn’t even start remotely the same? The two words aren’t really interchangeable in speech. I can’t really beleive someone would mix them up. Who calls someone a slug, anyway lol?

    Exactly and the coach is 66 so it's not a stretch.

    So want if said slug or thug?  He should have said "little bitches." Thug is not ni***r  Get over it.

    I’m not arguing what he said wasn’t bad. I’m saying he is lying to cover it up.

    And I asked a couple of my kids who are in their late 20’s if they ever heard someone be called a slug. 
     

    Answer: no

    You're a little older than me but we're cut from the same cloth. I probably use the term slug 3-4x's per week. lol

    Heard on my drive in that Sexton apparently said that Beilein calls them slugs all of the time.

    Cavs beat the Pistons and Nuggets and lost to the Lakers.
    The march to 20 wins continues!!

    To bad vball left the site. I know how much he loved Morant and thought he would be a decent pro. Would love to hear his thoughts after the game tonight lol

    Whether he did or not, who gives a fuck?  For anyone who played sports beyond middle school, are we actually going to pretend this is the worst thing a coach has ever said? Lmao.

    I don’t care. Pretty dumb to lie about it though. I don’t think most people cared, but a lot of us figured in 2020 that would be what got him canned.

    Thought I was watching 7th graders in the fourth quarter vs the Bulls – ten turnovers, almost in a row ……..to blow a 15 point lead.

    In hindsight, COA was spot on...Sexton is garbage

    He can score, but not sure he can do it on a winning team. And he cannot play PG with that assist rate. Thankfully, Garland is showing tremendous vision coupled with bursts of scoring as of late and looks to be a building block at the 1.

    If they can somehow swing a deal for Love/Tristan/Sexton plus this years pick three may have a team to get excited about moving forward.

    He can score but his efficiency is brutal. I agree that Garland is solid. Love is an albatross and not sure what, if any, value he has. I've heard teams want a draft pick with Love just to take him off the Cavs hands.
