But with Mike Brown’s future in limbo, multiple players lined up one by one the past few days to defend their first-year coach.The strongest endorsement came from Dion Waiters even though the two didn’t always agree.

Jim Ingraham: Thankfully, waste of a Cleveland Cavaliers' season over

It's hard to say what this was. It was either the last game of the season ... Or calling hours. In a season in which a record number of NBA teams openly conceded they didn't really care much about winning, the Cavs cared only about winning. They desperately wanted to win - but couldn't. They couldn't to such a spectacular degree that on the night of April 16, when they officially and mercifully laid to rest their 2013-14 season of shame, they were reduced to the height of ignominy.

Cavaliers notebook: Anthony Bennett returns from knee injury to play in season finale

CLEVELAND: Anthony Bennett sprinted down the floor in transition Wednesday, caught a pass from Matthew Dellavedova and finished with a terrific dunk in the lane. A few minutes later, he badly missed on a jumper that completely missed the rim.It was that kind of rookie season for Bennett, who returned from a knee injury to play in Wednesday’s finale, his first game since March 8. Bennett began the night averaging 4.1 points and 2.9 rebounds, certainly disappointing numbers for a No. 1 overall pick in the draft. “Obviously, I could have been a lot better,” Bennett said Wednesday....
