It’s no secret that the situation in Cleveland is toxic right now.

Everything is a mess, and it seems unlikely they’ll pull things together. The one hope they do have rests in LeBron James, who is good enough to keep the team relevant by himself. According to The Athletic’s Jason Lloyd, however, even that relationship is in serious jeopardy.

In the article, Lloyd writes that 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.

As a result, the Cavaliers have shut him out of front-office decisions… a move that could prove fatal to the stumbling franchise.

With free-agency looming, it’s starting to look more and more like King James is out of the door. Is this the end?
