Should I even try to explain that the Hornets/Hawks/Nets games would be replaced by Suns/Mavs/Kings or is it not worth the effort?

Seriously...Kevin Love with panic attacks, Lue stepping aside for health reasons, Bron brings in several buddies then two months in their bailing...you just cannot make this stuff up. I wish the NBA had the NFL version of Hard Knocks. Wouldn't you like to be a mouse at Cavs headquarters to see this soap opera play out??? And there is one common thread to all of this garbage going on...and you can't do anything about it because he's your best player.

Should they just name Lebron acting coach? Give him the official title that he has had unofficially for years?

Might as well, but LBJ will tell them not to. He doesn't want that added scrutiny.

Kevin Love is back and looking good. Desperately needed. He and Korver are pretty lethal together with LeBron. Now need to get Nance and Hood back healthy to find out what this group can be

Love's rebounding and passing at the top of the key were missed as much as his points.


Any chance the real Tristan Thompson stands up ?

So you are suggesting that LeBron has instructed KLove to have panic attacks and Lue to step down due to his health?

After seeing Korver in the starting lineup a couple games now ... I agree with you ... he needs to stay there!

Ok...I'm going to withhold my comments about this post until I get an answer to a simple question: are you insinuating that LeBron James is responsible for the recent health issues of Tyronn Lue and Kevin Love? It's a yes or no answer.

If you don't understand that there are more-better teams in the West, then you simply are not paying attention.

Yes, absolutely yes. LeBron is off the rails. Everyone in that organization is scared to stand up to the man. He's their best player, but no one controls him. He's coaching the team, always has been. What was the thing you noticed most with the dust up the other day on the bench? I noticed that not one player or assistant coach looked at either LeBron or Lue during that exchange. We see that during timeouts in packed arenas? How do you think LeBron is at practice when no one is around???
What do you think bedevil?

Who's going to play defense? The other teams go after Korver every possession. Ever notice that guards have great games vs. the Cavs???

What do I think? I think you've lost your fecking mind, that's what I think.

Let's understand this much: yes, LeBron James is a diva, just like so many other top tier NBA stars. There is a caste system in the NBA that is undeniable, but it is also understood.

The way you're perceiving the recent struggles of Love and Lue as attributable to their exposure to LeBron James is what is off the rails. He's been in the league 15 years and yet I never heard of Mike Brown or Eric Spoelstra or Dwyane Wade or Chris Bosh headed for psycho-therapy because of their experience coaching or playing on the same team as LeBron James. James is not perfect; he seems to need validation of his greatness, which is an odd quirk of his personality. But I honestly don't believe he is disruptive.

I think the weight of expectations weighed heavily on Lue. First, he was given a roster of aging/injured players at the start of the season that turned out to have absolutely no chemistry. Then, there was the overhaul at the trading deadline, and suddenly Lue had to pull together a roster of comparatively inexperienced players and get them playoff-ready, only to see many of them fall victim to injury. The only constant this season has been the play of LeBron James, and Tyronn Lue knows it. He has been dealt a difficult hand, but one that is made easier to play because there is a King in his deck day after day.

The post you made is equivalent to saying about a western conference team, "just think if you had to replace a couple of the Grizzlies/Suns/Kings games with Raptors/Celtics/Cavs..."

I have it on good authority that Dwayne Wade's knee problems and Chris Bosh's blood clots are directly attributable to LeBron.

There's a rumor being floated that Ante Zizic is blaming his haircut on LeBron James.
