It's very apparent that the Cleveland Cavaliers aren't off to the best start. The revamped, defending Eastern Conference champions are currently sitting at 10th in their conference and despite playing less than 10 games this season are in need of some real soul searching. The team decided that they'd air it all out during a team meeting Tuesday where the team unapologetically and bluntly discussed their struggles. Coach Tyronn Lue didn't divulge many details about the meeting but one glaring spot that he did say was addressed was the team needing to get in better "game shape."
The Cavs find themselves holding a 3-4 record after two recent losses to the New York Knicks and New Orleans Pelicans. But LeBron doesn't seem to be sweating the early season woes too much. He told reporters:
What is this? October? I'm not about to go crazy over it right now, [...] It's too long of a season, and I've been a part of this too many times, so I'm the wrong guy to ask. I'm too positive right now. All it takes is a win. That's all it takes. All it takes is a win, and then things will start feeling better, and we'll start feeling better about ourselves. So we just need a win.
The Cavs are slated to host the Indiana Pacers Wednesday night. We'll see if the "air-it-out" meeting has any direct bearing on the game.
