LeBron James is still keeping tabs on the Cavaliers, as the organization is going through a rebuilding phase. The Los Angeles Lakers’ superstar shared his thoughts on the coaching personnel and the team’s young core.
(per Chris Fedor of cleveland.com):
“I always pay close attention to what’s going on,” James said, after he dropped 46 points in his former team. “I think (head coach) J.B. (Bickerstaff) has done a hell of a job and they’ve been drafting well and made a couple trades.
You can tell that team is improving. They got some young guards that are very dynamic in Collin (Sexton) and Darius and the rest of them they can build around. They got some young pieces they can put their futures behind. We’ll see what happens.”
James led the Cavaliers to multiple NBA Finals and an epic NBA championship back in 2016, the first in the history of the franchise.
On Monday night, James went off for a special night against Cleveland. He had 46 points, seven made threes along with eight rebounds and six assists.
In the final quarter of regulation, the four-time NBA champion recorded 21 points to break the spirit of the young Cavaliers’ team.
The Cavaliers have had a great start for the season being seventh in the competitive East with an 8-9 record. On the other hand, the Lakers are in for another championship run this year having the best record in the league so far.
