John Beilein's use of "thug"; Tom Izzo MSU men's basketball weekly press conference; Roy Williams and the horrid season of North Carolina basketball; 

The Cleveland Cavaliers have more distractions as they travel to Detroit to take on the Pistons tonight. On this episode of Current Sports with Al Martin, Al breaks down the controversy surrounding Cavs head coach John Beilein, who used the word "thugs" instead of "slugs" to describe his team's style of play, and how hypersensitivity in society creates more problems than problems solved in the world of sports and beyond. Also, a snippet of Tom Izzo's MSU men's basketball press conference before tonight's game against Minnesota is played on Current Sports. Do the Spatans have what it takes to stay undefeated in conference play?
