“He’s a very nice guy off the court and he’s a dick on the court,” Frye told Joe Vardon ofThe Athletic. “If you’re not on his team, he doesn’t care about your feelings. He’s trying to cut your head off.”
Cavs fans should be happy to hear that evaluation. The team will need someone with his grit an aggression in this transformative season. If you’ve witnessed the tape of Sexton flexing on Los Angeles Lakers guardJosh Hartduring the NBA Summer League, you know he’ll have a lot more in store for fans this season.
Collin Sexton had 15 points, four rebounds and one assist in his team’s lone preseason game this year. His scoring effort came only second toKevin Love’s 17 points. He logged a team leading 22.8 minutes on the night. It’s great that the Cavs have emphasized getting him plenty of NBA experience early and often.
Channing Frye let it be known that Sexton won’t be looking to make any new friends outside of the ones he made within the Cavs organization this summer. When he plays in his first regular season game on October 17, he’ll have one thing in mind. He wants his team to play 48 minutes of competitive basketball and to notch a win at the final buzzer.
