Cavs Reportedly Had a Confrontational Players-Only Meeting

by November 17, 2013

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 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.”
