Several Cavs Players Reportedly Confronted Kevin Love And Accused Him Of Faking Illness To Get Out Of Game Vs OKC
The Cleveland Cavaliers are in shambles and seem to be pointing fingers at each other after suffering an embarrassing loss to the Thunder on Saturday. Today, ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski is reporting that Cavs players held a team meeting to call out Kevin Love for allegedly faking an illness to get out of the game against the Thunder and to skip out on practice on Sunday.
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.
Kevin Love isn’t the only Cavs player catching heat, it seems like Isaiah Thomas might get traded after failing to gel with the team since coming back from injury.
Here’s ESPN’s Brian Windhorst talking about the possibility of Thomas getting traded by the team.
