Cavs Reportedly Had a Confrontational Players-Only Meeting

Perhaps the Cavs’ win against the Wizards Saturday night will help them get back on track, but this ESPN report of a confrontational players-only meeting doesn’t bode well for the squad’s ongoing chemistry issues: “After a recent losing streak, the Cleveland Cavaliers may also be dealing with some chemistry problems within the locker room. The Cavaliers held a players-only meeting following Wednesday’s 29-point loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves, multiple sources told ESPN.com. But the meeting got contentious, and players confronted each other, according to sources.  The Cavs lost Friday, 86-80, to the Charlotte Bobcats after squandering a 12-point second-half lead, but snapped their three-game skid with a come-from-behind win over the Wizards in overtime Saturday night. Even with the win, Cleveland has lost five of its last seven games since starting the season 2-2. In a loss at the Chicago Bulls on Monday, Cavs coach Mike Brown and star guard Kyrie Irving got into an exchange on the bench after Brown pulled Irving from the game.”

    ”We were down 15. We could have easily quit. We’re kind of discombobulated. Andrew hadn’t practiced and threw him out there and started him,” Brown laughed. ”Not one unit out there knew anything that we were doing. I didn’t know what we were doing. Threw Earl in at the four. Earl doesn’t know what he’s doing at the four. We just kind of made it up on the fly.”

    so there was a confrontation (reportedly involving dion waiters) but no news on who the second guy was…interestingly. During the wizards game, kyrie was sporting a black eye, coincidence?

    People talk Kyrie up and don’t get me wrong, unbelievable talent who will have a great careerin the league. But what exactly has he done with the team he has?Yeah he had a great year last year, their team was still what? 25 wins or something? Meant to be one of the best PG’s cant even get his team to playoffs.

    Kyrie has a lot of talent. I still think he needs a great deal of development though. Watching the few Cavs games I’ve watched this season, Jack does a better job off the bench of getting the team settled and playing solid basketball. Kyrie still has to work on making his team better. That’s essential especially for a point guard who has the ball so often.
