It’s the dead of the offseason, but we’re just a few weeks away from the regular season. Teams are now regaining focus on the task at hand, whether it may be to improve and make the playoffs or try to defend the first championship in their franchise’s history.
As a professional athlete, distractions come in all sorts of ways and have been shown to really hamper the way players perform on the floor.

Uhh, yeah can we not have another distraction going into the 2016-17 season where the Cavs will look to defend their first ever title? They’ve had enough with the Tristan Thompson-Khloe Kardashian dating rumors as well as the Iman Shumpert DUI arrest last month.
