In the wake of a disappointing 3-5 start, Cleveland Cavaliers guard Dwyane Wade commented Friday on the lack of mystique surrounding the team.

Despite the fact the Cavs have reached three consecutive NBA Finals, D-Wade noted that teams aren't worried about facing them right now, according to ESPN.com's Dave McMenamin:

"Ain't nobody afraid. Teams come in here to whip our butt and they're whipping our butt. One thing I did notice at Miami, teams were afraid of us a little bit. Ain't nobody afraid. Maybe at some point it will get there, but not right now. Everyone's playing free, it's early in the year, and everything's going right for everybody but us. And we've got to figure it out."

Cleveland entered play Friday tied for 12th place in the Eastern Conference ahead of only the Chicago Bulls and Atlanta Hawks.

The Cavaliers have lost four in a row since starting 3-1, and all of their losses have come against teams that weren't expected to contend in 2017-18.
