The now widely reported team meeting the Cleveland Cavaliers held at practice Monday has resulted in reports coming out that Kevin Love was a “target” of his teammates.
Love left the 148-124 loss to Oklahoma City on Saturday after three minutes because of illness and was excused from practice Sunday because of the same illness.
Some of his teammates, apparently, were bothered by it and went as far as to question Love’s commitment to the team.
ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith said on First Take the Cavaliers should trade Love, but not because of his reputed lack of commitment to the team:

Tom Withers of the Associated Press said on his Twitter account Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue backed Love in regards to his illness.
Lue said he didn't need to know if Kevin Love was really sick, that he knew he was. Lue spoke during the meeting and said they need to come together on the court.#Cavs
