It’s already Late early in Cleveland


For everyone that was forecasting that Cavs as the top seed in the East…relax. Good thing the season isn’t a sprint other wise everyone would be jumping off the Cleveland bandwagon. But there are noise that the Cavs transition isn’t going as smooth as everyone hoped. LeBron is ripping Kyrie Irving abouy well his bad habits…

“There’s a lot of bad habits, a lot of bad habits been built up the past couple years,” James said to the media moments after the exchange. “When you play that style of basketball, it takes a lot to get it up out of you.

James addressed Irving to discuss the way he’d been dominating the ball in the early going of the season. Irving is averaging just 3.8 assists thus far. He scored 34 points in the 102-100 loss Wednesday to the Jazz but had no assists in 45 minutes of playing time.

Irving hasn’t had an assist in more than six quarters, and he’s taken 36 shots in that span. The Cavs tied a franchise-record low with six assists, four of them from James, against the Jazz.

“For us, it was a growing process that we have to go through,” Irving said Wednesday. “It sucks right now. For us, we’re still young, and I’m still learning what’s going on.”

James expressed frustration for how the offense operated against the Jazz but complimented Irving on his scoring.

“Well, I mean, as far as [Irving’s] scoring, it was big time. He made all the shots we needed to keep us in the game,” James said. “He made some great plays down the stretch, finished above the rim. It was great.”

“You just can’t explain [the low assist totals]. There’s no way you’re going to win a basketball game like that, just having six assists. … We just can’t win like that, and we got to figure out a way to help each other and not make it so tough.”

Let’s see how they work things out over the course of the season but as it looks now it could get late early in Cleveland.

  1. James didn’t win a championship in his first season with the Heat so let’s give the team time to sort things out and create some chemistry.. It takes time so Cavs fans shouldn’t expect their team to go 82-0.

    1. agreed but everyone had them in the NBA finals. Chicago is the best in the East, If Indiana gets its act together 2 Cleveland 3 and Washington 4 with the Knicks 5
