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.
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.
