LeBron James And Cavaliers’ Owner Dan Gilbert Relationship ‘Beyond Repair’

Published

on

Another day, another wrinkle in the ongoing dramatic saga that is the current state of the Cleveland Cavaliers.

A miserable expedition into the offseason with multiple whiffs on obtaining big stars via trade and the Kyrie Irving fiasco are only a piece of the misery pie that the Cavs are eating almost daily.

NBA writer Chris Sheridan reported that the relationship between Cavs star LeBron James and team owner Dan Gilbert is “beyond repair”.

“This will be LeBron’s final season in Cleveland,” Sheridan’s reported, which cited a source, stated.

“He is 100 percent leaving. Relationship with owners beyond repair.”

Irvings’s trade request and reports of rifts with teammates, the bad venture into the offseason and the outing of general manager David Griffin have all combined to put a sour taste in LeBron James’ mouth.

However, Sheridan’s report was quickly shot down by Sam Amico of FOX Sports Ohio who said that there is “no truth” to the report and the source that Sheridan cited in the report “swung, and missed by a mile.”

Regardless of which side of the fence you sit on regarding which report to believe, it is clear that the Cleveland Cavaliers are becoming both toxic and dysfunctional as they stumble their way towards the 2017-2018 NBA season.

Cavs’ Larry Drew Discusses Brandon Knight’s Play of Late

Published

The Cleveland Cavaliers knew that when they acquired Brandon Knight in a trade deadline deal with the Houston Rockets, that they were acquiring a player that may be a ways away from returning to form.

Knight, who missed the entire 2017-2018 season and appeared in only 14 games this season due to a torn ACL, has been showing signs of a return to form in his short stint with the Cavs, and it has caught the attention of Cavaliers’ head coach Larry Drew.

“I know what he’s gone through over a period with the injury and trying to come back from it,” Drew said of Knight, according to Joe Vardon of The Athletic.

“I know what he’s capable of doing. I know what type of player he is. He’s a fierce competitor. Not only does he do it from an offensive end, but defensively, he’s a tough kid. That addition in our lineup gives us a little versatility as far as we can move people around. … And I know how bad he wants to get back to the Brandon Knight of old. Certainly if he can get back to that, you guys are going to see a terrific player.”
