Cleveland Cavaliers have made an indifferent start to the new NBA season but LeBron James is not overly concerned by their struggles.
The Cavs have won the Eastern Conference title in each of the last three seasons, but they have yet to hit those heights this term, suffering defeats to both the Brooklyn Nets and the New Orleans Pelicans in recent days.
Small forward James has top scored for Tyronn Lue’s side on a regular basis this term and he is not overly concerned by their inconsistent start to the campaign.
“I’m fine, and we’re fine. It’s a long season. It’s way too [early to judge],” James said, per ESPN’s Dave McMenamin.
The four-time MVP believes Cleveland’s form will improve once point guards Derrick Rose and Isaiah Thomas are able to return to the fold. “We’re out two starting point guards,” James added.
“So I’m not overlooking what’s going on. I wasn’t overlooking if we had success.
I’m not going to overlook if we had a couple games off. I’m not getting too high and getting too low.
I’m an even-keel guy. “I understand this is a long process. We played some different [lineups].
Like I told you guys, we played some crazy lineups that we haven’t even played in practice. So we’ll continue to get better.”
The Cavs last claimed NBA Championship glory in 2016 and they are priced at 5.00 to repeat that feat this term, while they are available at 1.44 to claim the Eastern Conference title.
