I haven't heard about TT locker room issues. Do you have a link. I will say that on court has been very noticeable. I don't have an issue with his play - but he seems to get visibly upset sometimes when guys don't get him the ball. Dude - that's not why you are on the court. Just do your job.
Kevin O'Conner and Chris Vernon talked about it at length in a recent podcast. Apparently TT just keeps going out and partying, breaking protocol, etc. and has been setting a bad tone for the younger guys on the team. Sounded like he had been soured realllll quick in there, which is a bummer because Ainge claimed part of why they got him is they thought he'd bring some leadership to a young team.
I thought getting him out of a loser situation like CLE would bring the best out of him but just think he might not have the same kind of fire he had as when he was 23/24, hadn't got paid and was getting motivated by LeBron.
The fact that the Cs went out and got not one but two bench bigs tells me they are looking at a potential buyout. If TT spends more weeks in the Protocol he will essentially be off the team anyways.
I have no problem with that - time to force feed R-Will maximum minutes.
