RUMOR: Cavs players dislike John Beilein’s long, redundant film sessions
More rumors have now come out of the Cleveland Cavaliers camp pertaining to head coach John Beilein’s unsavory relationship with his players. Recently, team insider Joe Vardon reported that another thing Cavs players dislike about Beilein’s coaching style is his knack for putting too much emphasis on film sessions.
An irony in the latest Beilein mishap: one of the reasons Cavs players don’t like playing for him is these long, redundant film sessions. This one, obviously, went too long

Perhaps Beilein would not require his players to watch hours and hours of tape if only they were playing much better than they currently are. Then again, it could be said that Cleveland could possibly be a better squad had there been a more competent man at the helm. It’s pretty much a chicken and egg situation right now for the Cavs, and unfortunately for Beilein, his time seems to be running out.
Cleveland is currently 10-27, and have the third-worst record in the East, topping only the Atlanta Hawks (8-30) and the New York Knicks (10-28). Not only are they way outside the playoffs picture in a wide-open Eastern Conference, but they are also on a five-game losing streak.
To make matters worse, superstar big man Kevin Love reportedly got into a shouting match with team general manager Koby Altman last week, as rumors of the former’s imminent departure become even more substantial.
Beilein, who is currently just in his first season with the Cavs, was never expected to bring the team back to glory this year. The expectations for Cleveland was pretty low coming into this campaign, but he has somehow fallen below the same. At this point, it appears that it is only a matter of time before the 66-year-old coach gets the boot.
