Chris Grant, Kyrie Irving, Byron Scott

Any time your team is having a 22-47 season, it’s certain to elicit negative reactions from fans about the organization’s head coach. But it’s a very nuanced type of negativity when it deals with Cleveland Cavaliers head coach Byron Scott. Multiple times this year — notably, after the team started 5-23 — fans have questioned

We all know how difficult the weather can be to predict. Who hasn’t been caught on a seemingly bright and sunny day without an umbrella when the skies suddenly open up?

Video: Kyrie Irving puts on a display against the Oklahoma City Thunder
