I think we as a media may have gotten some things wrong when we tried to point Dion Waiters as the rotten apple in the Cleveland Cavaliers locker room.
If you recall, Waiters, Irving, Bynum and several other Cavs were all involved in a shouting match after a nasty early season loss.
Today the Cavs actual team cancer surfaced again when Andrew Bynum was suspended for conduct detrimental to the team.
Some reports say that Bynum no longer wants to play basketball, while others say this is just Andrew being Andrew, and trying to bully his way to a playoff team, and warm weather.
Was told issue w/Cavs C Andrew Bynum has been brewing for past month & lack of commitment to team reached tipping point at practice Friday.

Kyrie Irving was asked about Bynum before the Cavaliers took on the Celtics, and he didn’t pull any punches when he said that “Bynum has things he needs to address.”
K. Irving on Bynum: "He's going to be missed but he has some things he to address for himself before he comes back to the team." #cavaliers
