For years, Collin Sexton was a member of the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Even though he has moved on to the Utah Jazz, the Cavaliers still care for Sexton and celebrated him when he returned on Wednesday night.
The Cavaliers tweeted out their love to Sexton and he retweeted with a response of “Thank you Cleveland” and a heart emoji.
There is obviously still love between Sexton and Cleveland.
Thank you Cleveland ❤️ https://t.co/h4H6NksJ0A

After being selected as the eighth overall pick in the 2018 NBA draft, Sexton spent four seasons with the Cavaliers and averaged 20 points, 3 rebounds, and 3.3 assists.
Injuries bothered Sexton at the end of his time in Cleveland and the lineup moved on without him.
When he was finally healthy again, it didn’t feel like there was space for Sexton and he soon made his way over to the Jazz.
Since then, he has put up an average of 14.5 points, 2.5 rebounds, and 3.1 assists.
He has been fighting to earn a spot in the starting lineup but has so far only started in 20 games across two seasons.
However, Sexton has been on quite a run lately and has been doing incredible work for the Jazz.
Due to injuries on the team, Sexton has started in the last five games and has recorded an average of 25.6 points, 3 rebounds, and 4 assists.
Does that mean that he has earned a spot as a starter even when the injuries have been resolved?
No matter what happens to him with the Jazz, Sexton will always be well-regarded by the first team that he played for.
His days in Cleveland have come to an end but Sexton still loves the Cavaliers, and they love him as well.
