LeBron James Says "No Shade" Over Cleveland Cavaliers Trading Everybody

Cavs Isaiah Trade

"That's something we want to keep getting better at", James said.

The Cavs slipped to a fairly distant third in the conference standings by losing 13 of 20, but, hey, they'd taken the league lead in drama - Keeping up with the Cavaliers.

LeBron James recorded his second straight triple-double and Kyle Korver torched his former team as the new-look Cleveland Cavaliers beat the Atlanta Hawks 123-107 Friday at Philips Arena in Atlanta. It's unlikely he'll be any more willing to delve into the topic at that point.

While the game got off to a promising start for the Cavaliers, it got off to a better one for the Celtics. Yes, he sometimes lets his mind wander ahead - saying Thursday morning how he often daydreams about a time when is healthy again and back on the court for the Celtics - but rarely does he dwell on the past. At one point, Hill's pesky defense forced Celtics guard Kyrie Irving into a turnover and soon after that he stood his ground and took a charging call to force another Boston turnover. Monroe won't have to do too much for the Celtics on any given night, but anything that he can do throughout the rest of the season will definitely help out the Celtics.

It is also still possible that George may not go to the Lakers this summer, and if he does not go there, it will then be harder to imagine James signing with a team with promising young players but no other surefire star.

Stevens had more pressing concerns, including how to integrate Monroe into the lineup. In fact, though the Clippers are a half-game out of the final Western playoff spot, they're also just two games out of the fifth seed, thanks to plenty of disappointing starts up and down the conference.

James had 22 points, 17 assists and 12 rebounds.

"More so it's going to be a walk-through, just trying to teach the new guys the plays and what we're trying to do defensively", he said.

Regardless, things couldn't be worse than they were before, and the locker room vibe was obviously reaching the event horizon.

He said: "I did bring my game console and I will get it set up in Boston, get the updated rosters and I'll see how it translates". "So I'm happy that we got him and I feel like it's going to pay off for our group. It's just a matter of time".

James has said he would like to finish his career in Cleveland. So, you never know. "I wish the best for him in LA right now and his future".

"We have to see how it meshes, obviously", he said.

Terry Rozier scored 21 with nine assists and Kyrie Irving scored 18 against his former team before sitting out the fourth quarter. James thrives with playmaking shooters around him, and Clarkson and Hood killed the C's on the perimeter Sunday, combining to hit six 3-pointers. I mean, [referee] Billy [Kennedy] was behind me. He made only two of seven free throws, twice missing each of two attempts. "I think everyone's kind of at a high anticipation of what they'll look like". "I don't want to get fined".
