Kevin Love doesn’t seem to be well liked by the Cavs organization these days. Earlier this week it was revealed that Cavs players confronted Love about allegedly faking an illness to get out of the team’s game against the OKC Thunder on Saturday.
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.
Just last night, Love was ignored by his teammates when he got pushed to the ground by LaMarcus Aldridge during the Cavs game against the Spurs.
Today, Love caused a bit of a stir when he went on Twitter and said that he hoped to play alongside Golden State Warriors guard Klay Thompson during this year’s all-star team.
