Report: Kawhi Leonard disconnected from Spurs
Extremely vague and not worthy of an article. The only resentment I could understand would be if they pushed him to come back too soon.

Wow, things are getting ugly in Cavs land. Closed door meeting got leaked and a lot of finger pointing going around.

Supposedly IT led the charge. Not a good move from a guy that's been out with injury and a new addition to the team.

Love has always been the odd man out on this team, and he will never truly be part of that team, he's always the scapegoat and punching bag.

I'm sure things will be fine once the post season starts, as per usual with the Cavs the past few seasons, but what a whiny bunch of infighting fools.

Sounds like a little drama to keep the regular season interesting but I’d say the betting odds still favor the Cavs rolling through the east. Boston doesn’t have enough firepower and the Raptors, well, they haven’t proven anything yet.

Yeah, I agree with this. And now I'm hearing strong George Hill to Cleveland rumors (with Frye and Shumpert leaving). So Isiah Thomas, sounds like they don't like your defense and playmaking. Maybe they would start playing really small, and who knows where it leaves Derrick Rose. It's a quite a mess, without Lebron it would be hopeless.

To me, unless the Cavs D is really jacked up for a big game (going back years), they are easy to play against. And no one easier than Kevin Love, add in all the old guys and small guys and teams are licking their chops thinking they'll go for 130+.

We shall see but I don't take it as a given that the Cavs make the finals this year.

Love has been the scapegoat for the Cavs the past 3.5 yrs.
Nobody on that team is playing defense right now. And IT has zero room to point fingers.

I could always tell IT was not a good personality, even his facial expressions indicate that.
Just a really annoying guy.

Or Kawhi stays and LeBron joins him.
I mean if LeBron wants easy rings he'd go to Houston, but if Houston win the championship this year it might feel wrong for LeBron to go to a team already with a ring, so San Antonio may be an option because he likes Popovich and beacuse Kawhi-LeBron would be like Jordan-Pippen or Pippen-Pippen.

Kevin Love is the second best player on that team. He's sacrificed the most to make that situation work. If Thomas did lead the charge the veteran Cavs players (especially LeBron) better had spoken up for Love. If not, that could cause irreversible damage. No way in h*ll a new dude should ever call out a veteran and champion in any locker room.
