This whole situation with the Cavs is downright mind-boggling. It’s been clear for awhile that Beilein just didn’t fit in the NBA.
He was a college coach, and his methods and tactics didn’t translate to the program. However, the wheel really fell off when he accidentally called players “thugs” while trying to call them “slugs.”
That led players blasting music with the word “thug” in it whenever he was around. To say things were going poorly in Cleveland would be an understatement.
We’ll see what Beilein does next, but I’m sure he’ll take a hard look at returning to the college game. It’s clear that’s where he belongs.
