Player meetings are about as common in the NBA as pre-game shootaround. They may not occur as frequently, but when teams are struggling on the floor and showing an overall lack of chemistry, the “player meeting” is the go-to spot to air grievances and remains an attempt to bring the locker room together.
At times, meetings can range from productive, to heated, to players speaking up to debate the underlying issues going on within the team. Some point fingers. Some point fingers at themself.
For the Cleveland Cavaliers, their well-publicized player meeting from last week after a 29-point loss to Minnesota may have included all of those facets, but the only thing people are talking about is the on-going headline involving the reported fisticuffs between Kyrie Irving and Dion Waiters.
And it looks like the drama is going away no time soon.no comments
