JB Bickerstaff Rumors

“I think we got to be creative. This has given us a unique opportunity to think as far outside the box as we possibly can,” Cavs head coach J.B. Bickerstaff said during a Wednesday Zoom call with reporters. “Working with our staff, just having a conversation that we don’t always have to do what we’ve always done just because we’ve always done it. This is an opportunity to push the envelope and try to come up with some new and creative things that can help our guys even when things do get back to normal.”
One creative development tool that has come up: Virtual reality. “You basically can put a guy on the floor and he’s got to move through space like he would on a real court playing against opponents,” Bickerstaff said. Multiple members of the organization have brought virtual reality up when discussing a path to development at this uncertain time. It’s clearly on Cleveland’s radar. “I like that space a lot,” one member of the organization told cleveland.com.
“I feel like we were moving in the right direction and in a good rhythm as a team when they said the season’s stopped,” Sexton said. “We had 17 games left and I felt like we were going to try to finish strong. Me and Kevin (Love) were talking about this the other day. Feel like it’s very important for us to get these games because we have played just 11 games under Coach J.B. (Bickerstaff), so we’re still trying to understand him and he’s still trying to understand us as the head coach, which is a big difference. I feel like we need these games back. But it’s a hard decision to make during this tough time.”
