Should Rodney Hood be kicked off of the Cavaliers?

According to Bleacher Report, Cleveland Cavaliers' guard Rodney Hood refused to enter the fourth quarter in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals. It seems that sweeping the Toronto Raptors did not make everyone happy. Many people feel that Hood abandoning his teammates is enough for the team to cut him from the team, let alone playing for the rest of the season. Still, the Cavs need all hands on deck if they want to make it to the NBA Finals. What do you think? 🏀

Rodney Hood has been objectively trash since the playoffs started. He's shooting 13.3 percent from three-point range and playing matador defense; not great for who was supposed to be a key piece the Cavs picked up at the trade deadline. 

Refusing to go in during garbage time and basically telling the team to screw off is a cocky move that Hood, a struggling player, cannot afford—especially during a contract year. The Cavs should send him packing for the rest of the season.

What Rodney Hood did is unacceptable, but it's understandable. The guy is struggling and obviously frustrated. He should be suspended for a game, but Cleveland needs him on the bench. The road only gets more difficult with either Boston or Philadelphia advancing to the Eastern Conference Finals, not to mention whatever team will represent the Western Conference in the NBA Finals. 

If Cavs head coach Tyronn Lue utilized him correctly, Hood could be a dangerous scorer. This team needs everyone to win an NBA championship.
