LeBron James: “If It Helped Our Team Win, I’d Come Off The Bench”

The Cleveland Cavaliers have won 11 consecutive games to reach a season-best 10 games above .500. If there was any way to improve the sterling current state of his team, though, rest assured that LeBron James would do it. The four-time MVP told reporters today that he’d even come off the bench if doing so would help Cleveland win.

One-for-all, indeed.

But while David Blatt understands James’ sentiment, he still doesn’t think it’s such a good idea:

It’s pretty safe to say that LeBron will remain a starter for the Cavs. But who knows? If the team endures struggles down the line, maybe sitting him to start would get it back on track. What a luxury for Blatt to know that his best player would be comfortable taking that ego hit.

30-20 Cleveland hosts the Los Angeles Clippers on Thursday at 8:00 EST.
