Report: Multiple Cavs Called Out Kevin Love and Questioned Legitimacy of His Illness

2 Min Read

Turmoil continues to surround the Cleveland Cavaliers. With the taste of Saturday’s blowout loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder still lingering, the team held a meeting prior to its Monday practice. According to one NBA insider, several players questioned whether the sickness that kept Kevin Love from completing the game was legitimate.

If fans needed any more proof that things are very far from okay in Cleveland at the moment, this is surely it.

It’s quite clear that the troubles the Cavs are having on the court have transferred to the locker room. It’s possible that giving up 148 points to the Thunder in their ninth loss in 12 games has caused tensions to boil over.

Last month, LeBron James pegged trust and chemistry as two of the main issues that have plagued the Cavs this season.

“You have to trust that if my guy gets beat, then I’m going to step up and help that guy and the next man and so on and so on,” said James. “That trust isn’t always there right now. It’s something we need to get more consistent with.”

While James was speaking about trust on the court then, it is clear that trust off the court is now an issue as well.

There is no end in sight for the issues that are currently taking place in Cleveland right now. Hopefully, the emotional meeting got through to the team, but as the report indicates, that remains to be seen.
