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.

Well said. Despite the Kardassian BS he turned out to be a great character guy. Did whatever was needed, busted his ass to turn himself into a defensive and rebounding force for our great Lebron teams and then upped his role in the offence when they left and kept working hard for a losing team. He deserves another shot to be the defensive glue guy on a playoff team. Godspeed, TT!
