One of the Cleveland Cavaliers’ not-so-hidden problems is an inconsistent defense. The team has given up 127, 127, and 133 points in their last three games. Buffalo News columnist Jerry Sullivan had the audacity to ask LeBron James about the turnstile-like defending and elicited a rather snarky response.
I asked LeBron James what it says about the defense that 3 highest-scoring games against of year are in last 3 games: ""That if we put you in the lineup, we'd probably give up even more, because you look like you couldn't guard anybody."

Here’s what Sullivan looks like. He’s the one on the left.
I’ll tell you what: just on pure sight, there are definitely more exploitable matchups happening all over the country right now at YMCAs and rec clubs. You see that gleam in Sullivan’s eye? That’s a little bit of hustle shining through, suggesting he’ll dive for a loose ball or two.
Sullivan himself had a rebuttal.
To be fair, it was nice to see James muster some defensiveness — even if it came away from the court.
