Cav’s Post Trade Improvement Is ‘Selfish Players vs Selfless Players’ Says Former Cavs Player
Do the “new” Cavs have a chance at going deeper into the postseason?
Last week the Cavs were the talk of the sports world, making two bold moves at the trade deadline. Letting go of Isaiah Thomas, Jae Crowder, Iman Shumpert, Dwayne Wade, Derrick Rose and Channing Frye. Replacing them with Larry Nance Jr, Jordan Clarkson, Rodney Hood, and George Hill. Which has seemed to work, the Cavs went 121-99 against the Boston Celtics yesterday for the win. Clearly, the Cavs seem to be moving in the right direction.
What could be the reason for such a dramatic change?According to Dahntay Jones, former Cleveland Cavaliers, the difference for this new, winning, Cavs teams are players’ attitudes. The former shooting guard, who was a part of the Cav’s 2016 championship team described the post-trade difference via Twitter tweeting “The difference between selfish and selfless players.”
George Hill seemed happy about his new move in his postgame interview with NBA TV he said,”It’s fun. Tonight showed that all the guys out there are having fun playing for one another on the defensive end and the offensive end. We haven’t gelled yet, but if it looks like that, then I think we have the chance to be something special.”
Of course, all eyes were on the Mayor, Commander In Chief of #THELAND, Lebron James during this first game with his new line up. He spoke with Doris Burke after the game saying, “The attention to detail tonight was at an all-time high for the first time this season. We got some players that can go out and get their own, that’s pretty smart, and they picked it up like they’ve been here all year.” Seems like things are looking up again for the Cavs!
