Several players on the Cleveland Cavaliers are bristling at the tactics of John Beilein, numbers sources tell Joe Vardon and Shams Charania of The Athletic.

Beilein is treating this season like he and his players are in college.

Several players are beginning to look past Beilein and towards J.B. Bickerstaff for guidance.

“Guys drowned out his voice, and when guys start searching for the next in line for help, I believe you’ve lost them,” one Cavs player said. 

“The little things become big things, and sometimes very big things,” another player said.

“Our assistants are definitely more prepared for the NBA,” a third said.

Beilein is in his first season working in the NBA in any capacity at the age of 66. Both veterans and young players are frustrated by Beilein's college environment.
