In pursuit of a coveted championship, the Cleveland Cavaliers recently made a challenging but business-minded decision: trading away fan-favorite Anderson Varejao. 

Naturally, the move was met with quite a bit of melancholy, but few can claim to be as upset over the Wild Thing's departure as little Geo.

Enter, the seven stages of grief.

Faced with the crushing news, the pint-sized Cavs fan collides with shock, denial and anger, all flashing across his features within a matter of seconds.

Next, bargaining begins. "What'd we get?" he inquires in a practical manner. 

Unsatisfied with the answer, depression soon kicks in, and the tears begin to flow—accompanied by Sarah McLachlan's "I Will Remember You."

Comforted by his parents, he finds the strength to progress to the testing phase, ensuring that, at the very least, LeBron James and Kyrie Irving have remained on the team.

What of acceptance? Well, Geo manages a small nod when asked, "You still root for the Cavs, though, right?"

Just in case he hasn't quite made it there, however, perhaps they should hold off on telling him that the big man agreed to sign with the Golden State Warriors...
