Cavs’ LeBron James Believes Team Could Be Bounced Early In Playoffs

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.”

Love underwent surgery on his injured toe at the beginning of November and he was initially projected to be available to return around Christmas, but now his projected timetable of return seems to be the middle of January.

With one of the worst records in the NBA, Cleveland can afford to take their time with Love and bring him back slowly.

Cavs’ Kevin Love Talks About Bigger Purpose in Life, Other Than Basketball

Published

on

Cleveland Cavaliers veteran forward Kevin Love believes that his life has a greater purpose beyond being a productive and successful player in the National Basketball Association and is embracing his role as the league’s unofficial ambassador on mental health.

“I feel like I have a purpose, for the greater good,” Love said, according to The Athletic’s Joe Vardon. “For the first 10 years, for better or worse, that’s what I felt like for basketball. Learning what I needed to learn. Now I’m just starting to work on myself off the court. That’s going to lead to helping people and paying it forward. I think it is good to be busier when you’re working, putting the same time into things that are super valuable.”
