So an old fart who does’t give a shit calls out a guy for not giving a shit.Colangelo knows better.
Players, and their union, will stick with each other. They may call a guy out in private, but in public they stick together.
This has been the case since forever.
By taking it public he only pissed off the players. Its the same reason Koby doesn't call Love a bum, even if he deserves it.
Because the rest of the players in the NBA will black-list the Cavs until the FO changes.
But Colangelo, and to some extent Count Dooku, are old, about to retire, and don't give a shit. Someone else's mess to clean up in 2024.
As far as free agency goes - if the Cavaliers offer a better-than-average players more money than any other team (a year or two down the road) that player might take it. LeBron came back to Cleveland because it was good for his brand despite his distaste for Gilbert (who had to fly to Miami and kiss the ring, billionaire or no).
