After breaking from timeout during Tuesdays game against the Houston Rockets, Cleveland Cavalier Iman Shumpert tossed his towel onto head coach Tyronn Lue’s shoulder.
It appears that the disrespectful act broke Lue’s focus mid-conversation before he looked up to see what happened.
“I didn’t even notice it,” Lue told cleveland.com. “Somebody later brought it to my attention. It’s not something I’m concerned with. Him and me are cool. When did it happen?”
The Cavs blew the 20-point lead they had over the Rockets, losing the game. They went on to beat the Nets and the Hawks later that week.
