I think our fans understand the position we’re in — they understand it’s a process and it’s going to take some time. But I can understand they’re frustration [with losing]. I’m frustrated at times, so I understand their frustration as well. But each day I get up and realize that we have another opportunity to get better as a basketball game and these guys have an opportunity to grow a little bit more. But I understand that, if you’re a fan here, you’re not happy with what’s going on with us right now. But as I’ve said before, it is a process and we’re making some very positive steps in our mind. The record’s not showing it right now, but we have some young guys who we feel are going to be very good basketball players in the organization for a long time to come. Patience is a virtue. I just hope our fans understand that and will hang in there with us. [...] There’s definitely going to be a point where [it's put up or shut up]. I don’t know if that point is this year. There’s going to be a point in Dan Gilbert’s mind, Chris Grant’s mind, and my mind where it’s ‘alright, dammit, it’s time to win some basketball games.’ I don’t know when that point is going to come, but it’s coming, I do know that. – Cleveland Cavaliers head coach Byron Scott, Friday, on a growing sentiment that fans are growing restless with the rebuilding process showing very little in terms of results. The Cavaliers are presently the second-worst team in the league, judging by record, having gone 5-22 thus far. [Related: Cavaliers Film Room: Tristan Thompson’s Offense]
