The Cavaliers have won two straight games, which has somewhat cooled down the talks of things in Cleveland being an abject disaster, but they are still a mess right now.
Finding himself at the center of seemingly all of the problems and finger-pointing right now is Isaiah Thomas, from his role in the disastrous team meeting a couple weeks ago to his poor play on the court. Thomas had an interesting air-it-out talk with the media on Saturday where he got a bit defensive, although understandably so, about the blame he’s received but was also defiant about needing to change things.
There have been many around the Cavs speculating that Thomas could find himself on the way out of Cleveland just a month after making his debut. However, as Bleacher Report’s Ken Berger reports, Thomas apparently has the ear of the most powerful person in the organization and that may make his departure far less likely.
