Fox Sports 1’s Chris Broussard received plenty of backlash after reporting new Cleveland Cavaliers’ acquisition Isaiah Thomas had rubbed some teammates the wrong way, citing anonymous sources throughout the league’s executive ranks for this tidbit.

Broussard went on to explain that Thomas’ “Napoleon complex” was one of the key reasons his teammates had become aware of his ego, thing the locker room wasn’t pleased with.

The polarizing journalist responded to some of this feedback over Twitter, denying any claims that he is a Thomas’ hater.

Thomas’ former teammates Kelly Olynyk, Jared Sullinger, and even Evan Turner have come on his defense, the latter shared his experience with Thomas on and off the court since he was 16 years old, a more than a decade-long rapport with the Cavs’ star.

Broussard used anonymous sources and that is always a controversial stance, since these sources are unlikely to come out of the shadows and defend him when he made his take. This take has also not been corroborated by any of his peers, either within the network or outside of it — making him a lone wolf when it comes to this allegation.

Thomas was endeared to the blue-collar city of Boston for coming from the ground up, rising to stardom after being selected with the very last pick of the 2011 NBA Draft.
