Dwyane Wade was reportedly the first Cleveland Cavaliers player who pressed head coach Tyronn Lue for answers after Kevin Love left the team’s 148-124 loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder on Jan. 20 with an illness and did not show up to practice the next day.
According to Cleveland.com’s Joe Vardon, Wade “first made an issue of it at practice Monday, challenging Lue to disclose where Love had been.”
The quest to determine Love’s whereabouts sparked a “fiery team meeting” during which “several players challenged the legitimacy” of Love’s illness, according to ESPN.com’s Adrian Wojnarowski.
The New York Daily News‘ Frank Isola added former Cavaliers point guard Isaiah Thomas “led the charge against Love.” Vardon confirmed Thomas was “upset” but noted Wade was the first to raise the issue. via- BleacherReport.com
