The Awkward Situation Involving New Cav Recruits Derrick Rose And Jae Crowder


It seems the Cleveland Cavaliers organization has been a hotbed for drama over the past couple of months.

After everything that has gone on with Kyrie Irving, the Cavs finally traded him to the Boston Celtics in exchange for Isaiah Thomas, Jae Crowder, and a 2018 Brooklyn first-rounder, granting Irving his wish to escape LeBron's shadow.

Cleveland also managed to sign former MVP Derrick Rose to back up IT earlier on in the offseason for dirt cheap. You would think after trading away Kyrie, that's where the drama would end, but you'd be wrong.

It's been brought to light that Crowder is actually dating D-Rose's high school sweetheart. Yikes.


The Cavaliers have to be one of the unluckiest franchises when it comes to stuff like this.

They finally manage to move their disgruntled point guard for arguably a better return, and two of the recent signings they made this offseason happen to have a (former) mutual love interest. Great stuff Cleveland.

I guess we'll see how things between Crowder and Rose pan out over the course of the season. Don't be surprised if you see one of them requesting a trade come Febuary.
