Contrary to popular opinion, Isaiah Thomas says he and Cleveland Cavaliers teammate Kevin Love are totally cool.
On Saturday, Thomas told reporters there is “no bad blood” between himself and his teammate.
Isaiah Thomas said there is “no bad blood” between him & Kevin Love; Monday meeting was “blown out of proportion.” Players wanted to know where Love went Saturday & why he missed Sunday practice. That was it. Nothing more or less. #Cavs

Of course, we all know that Thomas reportedly was the man who led a recent team meeting in which players questioned whether Love actually got sick or just bailed on them earlier in the week.
Then on Friday night, Love did something on the court that some thought further illustrated his feud with Thomas.

Who really knows how things stand right now? We sure don’t. The only thing we know for sure is that the Cavaliers are playing like a team that is nowhere near ready to get back to the NBA Finals.
In fact, given the way they’ve been playing of late, they’re more likely to get bounced in the first round than make it to the championship stage. That kind of futility leads to plenty of frustration, so it’s hardly surprising that things are getting salty in Cleveland’s locker room.
