NBA Rumors: Cavaliers roster distractions; LeBron James concerned over Matthew Dellavedova, Kyrie Irving, Tristan Thompson

The Cavaliers are now at the top of the hill, but that may not be for long. The team, led by LeBron James, has been anxious on upgrading its lineup in lieu of a new trend: super teams. But NBA rumors have the Cavaliers roster distractions as its Achilles heel.

Are we witnessing a gradual meltdown of relationships between peers, as LeBron James attempts to instill discipline amidst the personal lives of other players?

If this happens, in spite of the level of talents the Cavaliers may possibly amass, team play could be affected by less cooperation and the lack of mutual respect. Is this the start of the end of the current NBA champions? NBA rumors updates.

According to a report by Inquisitr, Tristan Thompson has been linked romantically with Khloe Kardashian. Most NBA fans have blamed her for her husband Lamar Odom’s athletic fallout.

The popular reality star being linked to Tristan Thompson has not been received well not only by Odom but LeBron James as well, NBA rumors say. But LeBron James won’t be inclined to interfere with their personal lives, an insider to the story said, unless it interferes with their goals as defending NBA champions.

“LeBron is not going to take any nonsense and if Tristan starts focusing on being on TV and being a celebrity while dating Khloe Kardashian, then that is where the problems will come. LeBron wants everyone to be ready to repeat as champs and bring another title to Cleveland!” An insider said.

Another concern for the team is Kyrie Irving being rumored to be linked with Taylor Swift. A report from TMZ has sparked stories that spread like wildfire regarding the two, however, it remains unconfirmed. Taylor Swift is known for her long list of short-lived relationships, and fears mount regarding it being a distraction for Kyrie Irving.

With Matthew Dellavedova engaged, this could possibly translate to an inspired effort when a new season starts. Or, it could lead his focus elsewhere, just the same.

Other than that Matthew Dellavedova has been met with criticism online for calling his future wife “the best teammate I’ll ever have” according to a report by News, where an NBA fan commented, “Excuse me, what about LeBron James?”

And the rest of the pack kept throwing the same name over and over.

Could these Cavaliers roster distractions evolve into a bigger fissure when the NBA season starts, as broached by NBA rumors?

Should LeBron James be more concerned over what’s happening within the Cavaliers roster with Kyrie Irving, Matthew Dellavedova and Tristan Thompson rather than rival teams, such as the Warriors?
