I've been reading on social media and people are making jokes and taking shots at Cavs coach Tyronn Lue having to step down due to his health issues. Just like some people cheering for KD's injury, for those who make fun people's health issues and injuries are some sick a-holes for doing so. And, most of you will be the first ones looking for empathy and sympathy when you're going through something drastic. You should never wish ill will on any coach or player just so you hope your team wins. It's funny how a lot of people showed compassion for Steve Kerr when he was going through his health issues, but Lue is getting crapped on when he's going through his health issues; that's not right, that is totally classless. For those of you, who are making jokes about Coach Lue's health issues better be careful because one day the joke can be on you.

As a follow-up, people who complain about players getting injured because it's going to mess up their fantasy stats disgust me. These athletes are also people, and a broken rib or a torn ACL is pretty painful.

Agree wholeheartedly.

Social media is packed with teenagers and trolls.

The time I let "Ricky from the Dollar Store" or "Kevin, 7th grade phimore middle school" bother me I'll go jump in front of a bus lol.

As such, if you don't want to end up with HIV don't hang out in the park sharing needles with male prostitutes.

If you don't want to dealing with annoying, uninformed turds that are younger than some of your shoes or at least smell worse...then unplug from social media.

Trolls will be trolls. I see a lot of it on Twitter when anybody gets hurt/sick.
I never wish injury or poor heath on anybody.


Sad thing with Lue, I saw a lot of Cleveland "fans" making fun of him.

Those are the idiots that I made this post about. A certain group of Cleveland fans can be idiots just like every other fan base. I ran across one on Facebook that was wishing him well but said "We weren't getting anywhere with his X's and O's." Fans, media and trolls feel if a coach isn't Steve Kerr, Phil Jackson, Bill Belichick, Pat Riley, etc. they're not a great coach and they've only won because of their players, and they also feel that they lose because of you, win in spite of you. Erik Sploestra got the same treatment in Miami while coaching The Big 2; he hardly got any credit. Doug Piderson won't get any credit for coaching the Eagles to a Super Bowl title, and it's a shame because I think he's pretty good coach.

I agree. Even if it has anything to do with the three teams I despise of: San Antonio, Los Angeles (Lakers), and Miami, I would never wish anything bad upon them. The players on every single team are human after all, as are the coaches and anyone else who is a part of each NBA team.

There have been several instances where people would wish bad upon an NBA player and cheer about their injuries. That just disgusts me, to say the least.
