Putting himself in the best position to win another National Basketball Association championship is important but won't be at the forefront of LeBron James' mind when the Cleveland Cavaliers star examines his next career move this summer. This team has been playing with a chip on their shoulder all season long, and if I had to play them in a seven game series I would be very nervous. ESPN, citing unnamed sources, reported a few days later that players were frustrated with Spoelstra and were "questioning whether he is the right coach for their team". Riley said it was then he finally reached out. We just want to try to get better.
This, apparently, was not the first time that LeBron had indirectly inquired about Riley's return to the sidelines.
LeBron James vs Michael Beasley - James can and will bring it in MSG, but Michael Beasley can go off for a big game.
"I have no idea", he said.
That time has come again. But I get it.
The two cities could face each other in the playoffs.
"We make joint decisions all together, all the time".
"Lebron means so much to the people of Ohio", Betschel said. The Cavs now look to get win No. 51 (same win total as previous year, for all you haters), as they take on the Knicks again at Quicken Loans Arena, tomorrow at 8 p.m.
In 2010, King James left his home state of OH to take his talents to South Beach. "My family is what's most important to me, more than anything".
"He never got back to me with a response. He nearly had tears in his eyes".
The Cavs close their regular season Wednesday against NY.
For months, I've been guessing, just like everyone else, as to what James will do. It wasn't like they were smiling and happy to be in Miami. And they never loved him more than when he came back home - well at least not until he actually delivered the championship he had promised them. With the loss, Cleveland fell to 49-31 overall which drops them to fourth place in the Eastern Conference standings. "The serotonin level was going high". I think anytime you can win your division and have home court in the first round, I think it's a good accomplishment, especially with everything we've been through this year.
Of course that all happened almost a decade ago.
A new billboard has arisen in the war of words over LeBron James - this one in Philadelphia. It was personal for me. The margin was only three, however, at halftime, and Detroit managed only 38 points over the final two quarters. "My attractive plan all of a sudden came crashing down", Riley said.
Riley also says in the book that he believes LeBron's Heat could have won five or six championships in 10 years. But I get it.
"I think he knows how to play the game".
