    Drama for the Cleveland Cavaliers?

    The Cleveland Cavaliers held a players-only meeting after a 29-point loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves on Wednesday, and players got contentious and confronted each other, according to multiple sources.

    The Cavaliers also lost to the Charlotte Bobcats at home on Friday.

    In a loss at the Chicago Bulls on Monday, Mike Brown and Kyrie Irving got into an exchange on the bench after Brown pulled Irving from the game.

    Irving is struggling, shooting just 38 percent from the field and 32 percent from 3-point range. He was just 5-of-16 shooting in the loss to the Bobcats.

    Confrontation between Cavs players reported by ESPN involved Dion Waiters, source says. Waiters sat out last night, didn't travel today.

    If you don't think that contentious Cavs players' only meeting was a mutiny against Kyrie, you're fooling yourself. Players sick of his act

    This all said, I can't imagine the Cavs are just saying that Kyrie's black eye is from a the Brewer elbow. At least I hope they aren't...
    This was supposedly from Columbus writer:

    Somewhat general, but I asked if I could interview him about Aaron Craft and he seemed very annoyed and got defensive in his answers -- things like, 'Well people said he beat me, but that's what you guys do' -- even though I wasn't pushing him on anything. The interview went fine enough and I got a good story out of it, but after doing a lap around the locker room I came back and asked if I could ask him one more question. All he did was stare at me, before pointing to a PR goon who ushered me out.

    After the game, we did a group interview with him, and his answers were fine enough, but when it wrapped up, I heard him say to the PR guy "I swear to god, I'm going to punch so and so in the face." It seemed like he was annoyed that somebody didn't adhere to the PR guy saying "Last question" and Kyrie wasn't having it. This type of thing happens all the time in interviews, and it's not like he'll ever be in Columbus again anytime soon, so for that to get under his skin seemed a bit dramatic.

    I talked to some people who cover the team more regularly than I do -- I just went cause I'm a Cavs fan and wanted to get that Craft story -- and not very many people had good things to say about him. Without getting into too much detail, his partying has been a problem, so much so that the Cavs have had to step in at times. There was also an incident where he got a staffer fired last season and where he skipped fan appreciation night. Little things, I guess, but it really changed how I look at him
    Wow. I thought Mike Brown left the drama and his shi*ty offensive schemes back in LA?

    IMO, George Karl would have been the perfect coach for Kyrie and the Cavs young team. Karl is a player friendly coach and has helped develop and mature many young players before. Even Lionel Hollins would have been a good choice.

    Brown is just an awful HC. He's proven it time and time again. LeBron won inspite of him. LBJ deserves major props for surviving a Mike Brown coached team and actually getting the Cavs to have one of the top records in the NBA every year.

    If Brown continues to piss off Kyrie and alienate Kyrie from the team, what's to say that Kyrie won't want out when his contract's up? Or even before that?

    Trouble in Cavs Locker Room?

    The Cleveland Cavaliers are dealing with a three-game losing streak, and perhaps 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. ESPN.com - See more at: http://hoopshype.com/rumors.htm#sthash.FLtmLimZ.dpuf

    Also read somewhere that Irving and Brown got into it a bit after Kyrie was pulled out of the game

    so Kyrie's immaturity is Brown's fault? i'm not trying to say Brown is a bad coach but blame a player's immaturity on someone else doesn't makes sense

    I noticed during the 2OT win over Philly - Kyrie missed 2 potential game winners trying to scorr against triple teams. Jarret Jack gave him a ton of ****. Kyrie did the same thing in double OT and won the game and Jack gave him **** again - Kyrie gave him a look that was far from warm and cuddly.

    There is no doubt that Irving likes the " Stats " And he would like to be the Hero MOST times if he can.
    Now maybe they will just give it time, and see if they can work through this. But, I also feel that Irving and Waiters have some personal Issues. There have been some speculational talk that they might be looking to trade Waiters for another player. And some reports have said that the Cavs MIGHT be looking at the Sixers Even Turner. They said that the reason is that Turner is a more versatile talent then Waiters is, and is a Ohio Legend if you will. And that Dion Waiters...even though a bit shorter as a SG could very much play along side the TALLER PG in Michael Carter-Williams....as you know BOTH came out of Syracuse. And Waiters is a Philly Born product, so he might be more Inclined to re-sign there....once his rookie deal is up.



    Like I said, WIP just brought this up this afternoon, and it's PURE Speculation. But I thought I would pass it along.

    Sad to hear. Hopefully Irving quits getting injured and they turn things around. They should be using Jack, who is a clutch shooter, instead of depending on Irving so much.

    Crazy stuff going on in Cleveland. I don't think Brown was the right hire either. He knows his defense but I find that star players don't really respect him too much

    Kyrie might possibly be the most overrated player in the NBA.

    During the Bulls game. Rose was just in his head and Brown pulled him, looked like Kyrie didn't want to come out.

    It can't be good when your best player gets punched in the face in a players only meeting.

    Not good! Teams don't typically win when players hate each other. Fire sale!

    It's only gonna get worse, when Bynum comes back and gets the hilarious idea in his head that he can make the 3 point shootout at the all star game.
