Cavs’ Collin Sexton staying positive amid growing pains, Tyronn Lue’s firing
Cleveland Cavaliers point guard Collin Sexton’s NBA career has gotten off to a chaotic start. Despite this and with the team winless, Sexton is still staying positive, per Chris Fedor of Cleveland.com.
“They’ve been pretty fun as well as a learning experience,” Sexton said of the first few weeks. “I felt like coach Ty Lue, he helped me a whole lot, so, the things that he helped me with, I’m just going to continue to grow.”
With the Cavs firing head coach Tyronn Lue this weekend, it will be interesting to see how the rookie deals with the change.
Coaching changes are tough on any player, but they are especially tough on the rookies. With Lue gone, however, this could mean Larry Drew goes with Sexton over George Hill in the starting lineup as the franchise looks to go with younger options.
With the Cavs going through rough times, it is important for Sexton to stay positive and try to keep an eye on the end goal here, which is to win a championship. Another goal for Sexton is to prove why he was a lottery pick in the draft and why he can be the face of the franchise.
How Sexton responds to all this turmoil will be something to keep an eye on as he tries to find his way in the NBA. Cleveland might not be any good this season, but there is plenty of intrigue when it comes how this franchise will survive in the post-LeBron James era.
