“Is the podcast anything without Richard? Probably not,” Frye said. “It might have to be on hold until that fool figures out what’s good with his career. His career is more important than that. That’s just kind of how it is. For me, it’s fun and that’s why I always said I enjoyed it. I wasn’t there to be famous or to be like ‘Mr. Podcast.’ I was there to just have fun, have a glass of wine with my friends and enjoy it. This comes and goes. This is quick.”

“Do I feel bad for him? Have you seen his house in L.A., in Manhattan Beach? He’s living good,” Frye said. “He’s doing OK. He’s not dying. S—, he’s just not on this team. We have a really good team and this team has to do not what’s best for Channing’s best friend to be here or for Richard to be here, they have to do what’s best for Cleveland and right now we got really freaking good players on this team. … He’s going to be my boy. Hopefully he’s not calling me too much if he’s bored. But, we’re good.

JR Smith was taken aback by Cleveland Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue’s decision to start Dwyane Wade after he was initially told that Wade was brought in as a backup, Smith shared on an episode of the “Road Trippin'” podcast with teammates Richard Jefferson and Channing Frye. “Honestly, I was hurt, man,” Smith said on the podcast, which posted Friday. “I was really emotionally drained at that point. I got wind of it that it was going to go down, but I didn’t know. I was told he’s going to be great for the second unit. … It would be a great fit for the team, whatever, whatever. I’m like, ‘Awesome, let’s do it. One hundred percent. Out of all people, another person we’re going to just grab for damn-near nothing? For sure. Let’s do it.'”

Storyline: Cleveland Cavaliers Turmoil?
So how is he supposed to get them all minutes when he’s most comfortable using a 10-man rotation? How was he supposed to tell Tristan Thompson, the defensive linchpin and core member of a team that had gone to three straight Finals, he wasn’t going to start any more because the offense was changing? What happens with Channing Frye and Richard Jefferson, two key members of the bench and important voices behind the scenes, now that others have been brought in to take their places? “Being direct, telling the guys the truth,” Lue said. “They respect it a lot. Even if they don’t want to hear it or listen to it, the next day they be like, ‘You know what, you was right. I can respect that.’ So you tell guys the truth, they might be upset about it initially but they’ll get over it.
