The Cleveland Cavaliers difficult season is wearing on it’s roster, including superstar LeBron James who has a rather bleak outlook for the team should their woes continue.
The defending Eastern Conference Champions were considered to be favorites, once again, in the East, but their play has many wondering just how long the Cavs could last in the playoffs.
Apparently James believes that they could have a tough time.
“Playoffs? We can’t even start thinking about that, not the way we’re playing right now,” James said after the Cavaliers’ 148-124 loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder, according to Dave McMenamin of ESPN.com.
“We could easily get bounced early in the playoffs if they started next weekend. Haven’t even began thinking about the postseason.”
“I can’t break,” James added. “I’m the last one that can break at this point. I’m the leader of this team. Hopefully we can get some wins, and that definitely helps, but I’m going to stay as positive as I can be. You guys know me—patience has not always been a thing for me—but knowing the rough patch that we’re in right now, that’s what I’m going to give to this team. Just stay positive.”
