CLEVELAND, OH — Channing Frye didn’t hold back when he was asked about the current state of the Cavaliers.

“I can’t do sh-- for that sh—show,” Frye wrote on Twitter when someone mentioned him returning to the team.

Frye was originally commenting on a report from The Athletic that said the Cavaliers fined Kevin Love $1,000 for an angry outburst on the sidelines during a blowout loss to the Raptors on Dec. 31.

The fine reportedly led to a verbal altercation between Love and Cavs general manager Koby Altman on Saturday afternoon.

“Are y’all sh---ing me??? Fine him for what? Being emotional? Losing? Tell me what y’all think,” Frye wrote.

His reaction garnered a response from national media and Cavs fans. Frye went on to criticize Altman and second-year guard Collin Sexton.

“If I was GM I’d find a player that my vets could believe in, we could grow our culture through good basketball,” Frye tweeted. “Losing would come through lack of knowledge not selfish play. Establish anyone can be benched and wouldn’t give minutes to players that don’t play winning basketball.

“Let’s get this straight. He has expectations as a starting NBA point guard,” Frye continued when asked about Sexton. “He’s 21 and in MY opinion he’s not [a starting NBA point guard]. “He’s not a leader he’s not a point guard. He scores. He’s ok on defense. He will be an NBA pro for a very very long time. I don’t agree with the position he’s been put in.”

Frye also implied that it's time for the Cavs to trade Love.

"They did right by Jordan do right by Kevin," he tweeted.

Frye spent four seasons in Cleveland and was on the 2016 team that won the NBA Championship. To read the rest of his tweets, go here.
