LeBron James Reportedly Cursed Out Cleveland Execs In Heated Meeting Last Month; Plans To Finish Out The Season In Cleveland

As the Cleveland Cavaliers continue to struggle on the court, things are reportedly heating up behind the scenes.

From tensions among the players to LeBron James’ future with the team, the team has been plagued with issues. However, the team, including James, have been trying to keep up a facade. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Now though, according to Bleacher Report, new reports have surfaced that James recently lost it in a heated meeting with members of the team’s front office.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

“James cursed toward at least two team executives” during the late January team meeting in which some players questioned the legitimacy of Kevin Love’s illness,” The Athletic’s Jason Lloyd said of the incident. “[The Cavs] have been noticeably pivoting away from James’ recommendation” since the offseason.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

According to Lloyd, James wanted the team to bring #KyrieIrving to training camp in the offseason, but instead, they went through with his trade request “without consulting” him. To make matters worse, James still has “no relationship” with owner Dan Gilbert or general manager Koby Altman, Lloyd added.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Since Gilbert cut former GM David Griffin, who kept James “informed of major roster decisions,” the team’s leader has been in the dark on team decisions.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Despite the tensions in Cleveland though, James intends to “see the year through in Cleveland,” Yahoo Sports reports.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

“I’m here for the long haul,” LeBron said after another tough loss. “I’m here for this season right now, [to] try to figure out ways we can still compete. I couldn’t give up on my teammates like that. I couldn’t do that. I just couldn’t do it. We put too much into the game every single day. We go out and prepare. Win, lose, or draw, at the end of the day, we’re all brothers, and we understand that. I owe it to my teammates to finish this season out no matter how it ends up. I would never waive my no-trade clause.”
