The Cleveland Cavs have won two in a row after a series of deals which sent Dwyane Wade, Isaiah Thomas, Iman Shumpert, Jae Crowder, Channing Frye, and Derrick Rose out of town for George Hill, Rodney Hood, Jordan Clarkson, and Larry Nance Jr.
There's been talk that the trade fixed a toxic Cavs' locker room. NBA reporter Chris Broussard added fuel to that rumor when he reported that Isaiah Thomas didn't much care for the team's alpha dog, Lebron James.
"I was talking to somebody yesterday close to Isaiah, and they said he has absolutely no love at all for LeBron," stated Broussard. "He felt like LeBron kind of talked down to him when he was there. When Isaiah first got there they actually were hanging out a little bit and it was cool, but it soured pretty quickly."
Isaiah was acquired in the offseason from the Celtics in the shocking Kyrie Irving trade.
One of the reasons Kyrie wanted out of Cleveland is he was sick of Lebron "son-ing" him. Which is now Thomas's issue with James.
It appears Lebron's personality could be a hindrance in his chase for another title.
