Admittedly it's one of those incidents that's easily overblown, but at the same time, seems like there's something to that. Love seems to be the scapegoat in Cleveland at the moment, and Crowder doesn't seem to be #AllForOne, either. Could ultimately be a storm in a teacup, but it seems things are a little tense right now.

Rumored that IT is the bitch that leaked to Woj what happened in the Cavs' players only meeting and the one that kept pressing on the issue of Love 'quitting on the team' during their blowout loss.

I saw a post (possibly on Reddit) that succinctly summed up the situation. The Celtics got the guy who wanted out, whereas the Cavs got the players who were happy where they were.

I still think some of Cavs players don't take regular season seriously. Tristan Thompson who is the best defensive effort guy hasn't even played over 500 minutes for the season and look at 8 guys with most minutes played, only 2 of them are under 30 years old namely Love and Crowder. Perhaps things will look up and this defense problem will not be so much of an issue later on. The Cavs should know this and shouldn't get shortchanged if any trades are made by deadline. They know they are better than their records/suggest, and aren't desperate to make costly trade.

Injuries suck.

Andre Roberson ruptured his patellar tendon against the Pistons today and will miss the rest of the season as well :(

It's a massive blow for OKC's defense.

Yeah, they really struggle defensively when he is not on the floor as well. The other part of his injury that sucks is: It looks like he slipped on the floor. Non contact injuries really, really suck.

Ferguson and Abrines are really going to need to step up.

Using Nick Wright Logic, the fact that he is the first player to do this means he's the best player in the league, and for that matter, the greatest of all-time. Only haters trotting out the same old arguments that are now invalid because I say so in my infinite wisdom would even dare dispute this unquestionable fact.

In all seriousness, that is an impressive feat. I'm still not sure about the Rockets getting past the Warriors, but at the very least, I don't think it's as big of a stretch as it once was.

Ridiculous performance by McCollum indeed. I believe he joins Klay Thompson as the only play to score 50 in less than 30 minutes of playing time.

Clips were up 104-101 and Mavs had the ball, Doc subbed BOBAN in with seven tenths of a second on the clock to stand in front of the inbounder, Yogi Ferrell caught the wild pass while out of bounds so no time went off the clock, then Doc immediately called timeout to advance the ball and sub BOBAN out for Gallinari. :dead

Seeing this happen to Cleveland is hilarious. But I feel bad for Thomas, yes I know he's playing shitty.

Thomas may never be back to his old self, and that's a shame. His old self was a terror on offense.

The Cavs don't even look like they are trying at this point. LeBron has always done this loser shit on defense (just standing there and letting people go by, or doing the lazy swipe, or literally just standing there with his hands on his hips) but it looks like the rest of the Cavs have joined him with that effort, makes for a fine spectacle. And at the same time, he will put on a fake show of yelling at his teammates to play defense. If you guys think that the players are just giving up on the organization, or Dan Gilbert, etc you are mistaken. The players are absolutley giving up on LeBron because they are sick of his phony, stat padding, overrated ass.

The Cavs need a savior in the worst way, someone who has that Kobe mentality and literally can put the ball in the basket whenever he wants (Like Kyrie). But that won't solve the defensive struggles, that will take partially cleaning house if possible and getting a few good bodies in there. Which is near impossible at this point unless they trade a 1st rounder (BKN Pick) and a few other pieces. However, who really wants anybody from the band of effortless players? And the Cavs know for a fact LeBron is walking, if I were them I wouldn't get rid of any picks. Throw away the future because of LeBron? Right.

The Suns had 50 points through three quarters last night, compared to 97 by the Spurs. I believe at one point, it was something like 89-38, and ended up 129-81. Brutal.

I saw. Without Booker, that team might be the worst in NBA History.

With Booker they also are very, very poor.

I keep passing up on him in daily fantasy in favor of balancing my roster out more, and I keep getting burned. All the top teams had him last night.

His passing skills as a big man are top notch, and it doesn't hurt being surrounded by shooters like Gary Harris, Murray and Barton. He makes the best of his tools considering he isn't the most athletic guy in the world.

The Nurkic trade makes a whole lot more sense now, as how do you take minutes away from a talent like Jokic? While I am a big fan of Nurkic and his game, no way those two could have coexisted. Nurkic is a starter in this league, he's just not as good as Jokic.
