    What's the point of having an "emotional team meeting" to talk about a player's illness?

    Everyone in The Cavaliers lockroom knows that LeBron won’t be there in 3 months and none of them care about the rest of the season. Kevin Love knows he will be dealt.

    That is probably the only thing that could be accomplished. Cavs looking like the most mentally weak team in the NBA.

    Wow. I could see a Love for Jordan deal. Lebron is as good as gone.

    The Cleveland Cavaliers held a fiery team meeting in the practice facility locker room prior to Monday's practice, during which several players challenged the legitimacy of Kevin Love's illness that led him to leave Saturday's loss to Oklahoma City early and miss Sunday's practice, league sources told ESPN.

    Several players were pushing for the Cavaliers' management and coaching staff to hold Love accountable for leaving the arena before the end of Saturday's game, and then missing Sunday's practice, league sources told ESPN.

    The meeting was loud and intense, only calming down once Love spoke to those gathered in the room and explained himself, league sources said.

    The meeting included Cavaliers coach Ty Lue and general manager Koby Altman, league sources said.

    There was a sense that the team was largely accepting of Love's explanation, and that the airing out of issues could have a positive impact on what has become an increasingly fractured locker room. Within factions of the locker room, there has been blame for the Cavaliers' struggles directed at everyone from Love to Isaiah Thomas, to Lue and the front office, led by Altman, and owner Dan Gilbert, league sources said.

    Cleveland is in a spiral, dropping to 27-18 -- only one game ahead of the Miami Heat for third place in the Eastern Conference. Cleveland has lost six of its past eight games, and plays San Antonio on Tuesday night in Texas.

    I bet you it was that rowdy Cedi Osman stirring up trouble in the locker room. Can't trust those young turks.






    or more likely J.R. Smith.

    This is baaaad. Part of being on a team (in any setting) is having good working relationships with your mates. In the NBA, a lot of that is off the court. Since apparently nobody came to Love's defense, he probably gets an F in that category.

    The guy is a well-known flake and loner but accusing him of faking an illness seems over the top IMO. But nobody outside the organization knows the exact context of what happened.

    Original tweet sounds like a lot worse than it is.

    I forget Woj tweeted this, he hates LeBron and puts out hit pieces on the reg.

    LOL at Kevin Love having to explain to his teammates, coaches and his boss; brings the Cavs closer and is a positive.

    Having coworkers complain to your supervisor that you are a liar always brings everyone closer. I am sure Love really feels a strong sense of camaraderie with his teammates right now.

    All they need to do is trade for Dwight Howard and see how his knee slapping and joke playing works in that locker room.

    And lebron will be out in less than 3-4 months.
    Cleveland won't win another championship for a good 50 years.
    Back to the bottom seed they go...

    Woj used to be classier. His false reports on the Clippers/Rockets debacle makes it seem like he's just chasing TMZ headlines to stir the pot. I guess he's desperate after getting his **** constantly pushed by Shams.

    I think it's important to note that Lebron has had drama with the Cavs EVERY year since his return. His control of the organization leads to a lot of this crap. Coaches and management are neutered and his passive aggressive attacks create a lot of tension.

    Just keep that in mind if he ends up here.
