I’m sorry he was a overpaid hustle guy, that lost his hustle after Lebron left, he pouted when he didn’t get the ball, let nagging injuries allow him to sit whenever he didn’t feel like playing, I think he will try to be that hustle guy again with Boston .......But I’m not losing any sleep with him leaving.....People forget Drummond will be playing for the contract of his life, this season.........


This doesn't make no sense at all.

Tristan never demanded the ball,he bust his ass off every night and he rarely got hurt...


What the hell are you talking about...

Watching the highlights of TT's 35-point game against Detroit linked in the original post, you see him abusing Drummond over and over. If Drummond couldn't stop Tristan, who the hell can he stop?

Everyone who didn't go off against him for 35 points?

Sometimes one guy has a really good game, and another guy has a bad game. If they coincide, it can get ugly. Drummond isn't a great defender, but he's not "A guy like TT can regularly score 35 ppg against him" bad.

When a great contributor to a Cleveland franchise moves on, the best or worst of the fans personalities come out.

There was a lot of hate thrown towards Dellavedova when he took the money from the Bucks... now looking back we can agree he needed to take that money and run with it.

TT gave the Cavs his best effort for almost a decade. He is a franchise all timer when he decides to hang up his high tops. Unfortunately, the Celtics were a rival that entire time which makes this a little harder to palate, but like Omar Vizquel it's okay for other franchises to see him put in the work day on and day out to grow his legacy.

I don't see what the gripe can possibly be against TT. Okay, the Kardashian crap was annoying, and he pushed to get the biggest contract he could...but I don't blame the guy for that.

He hustled every single game, was an injury Iron Man, and never had some of the moodiness that plagued the Big 3 -- at least none that ever really showed. Guy just showed up and did the dirty work. No humble brags, no whining...just took pride in being a garbagman.

I'm sure someone can dig up an example or two over his long career with the Cavs where he did something blameworthy, but that kind of thing was by far the exception rather than the rule with him. Good dude basketball-wise who didn't complain, and left only when his contract was up.

Drummond schools board Darling Myles Turner every time they play. Matchups are wild. I never had any respect for Aldridge or Horford because TT would regularly shut those guys down starting his 2nd or 3rd year. They just never had good games against him.

NBA is weird and Miami beat the Celtics. I was really blown away by Orlando getting destroyed by the Lakers after they beat the Cavs in 2009. That series put matchups on the map for me. People tout talent a lot, as they should, but matchups can be exploited and they can win you a series. Those guys almost always get handled easily in the next round because the same matchups aren't in play.

We should get Myles Turner though...

I find it odd the organization haven't said anything about him leaving. I mean,he was the longest tenured player and contributed to winning the title.

I mean,they even gave a thank you to a guy,who didn't play one minute for the team..

It is my hope and dream that Koby Altman has embraced the Fuck Klutch philosophy.

Yeah usually they have a press release. I think they will do something when he comes back for the first time. They often do a little tribute.

If Boston hasn’t announce it officially, the Cavs won’t say anything. It’s likely just that. BOS still trying to figure out if they are going to S&T Hayward to CHA or not and that is the hold up on a few things(like signing TT or whether or not Batum gets stretch released by CHA)
