“We can’t sustain effort for 48 minutes,” James told reporters after the Cavaliers dropped their fourth straight game, and third in a row by at least 17 points, against the Indiana Pacers.
“I don’t know,” James said, when asked how the Cavs can remedy their issues. “Get in better shape, be more mindful of what’s going on. There’s a lot of things you can do.”
“We have an opportunity to be very good, but then you see some of the lulls that we have, it’s just very difficult on our team right now,” James said. “We’re trying to figure it out on the fly and unfortunately we don’t have time to practice a lot and do those things. And now Tristan went down again, we don’t know how long he’s going to be out, so our team is kind of depleted as well.”
My favorite thing about the Cavs losing every single game they play to awful teams by a bajillion points is that the Cavs players have no idea why they’re so bad. They keep saying it’s because they’re out of shape. Every single player on this team is in their 30’s. They’re not ‘out of shape’. They are the shape of every 30 year old ever.
The best storyline in the NBA season thus far has to be seeing LeBron James lose night after night knowing that he is 1000% abandoning Cleveland the second the season ends and the Cavs are the 9th seed. He will be live tweeting the Finals with his location on from Los Angeles.
Before the season, LeBron said he’s never played on a Super Team in his career. The basketball gods heard that comment and sent him Derrick Rose and Jae Crowder. The basketball gods are undefeated.
Thanks for reading. Tweet to @TheLesterLee if you think the Cavs are the worst team in the NBA. Also, go ahead and throw Deadseriousness a Like on Facebook so that I can keep the lights on around here at HQ.
