LeBron James works out immediately after Celtics game

Gone is All-Star guard Kyrie Irving, who was dealt to the Boston Celtics after he surprisingly requested a trade, and among the newcomers are offensive weapon Isaiah Thomas, out until January with a hip injury, former league MVP Derrick Rose and 12-times All-Star Dwyane Wade.

James took part in some post-practice shooting drills with teammates Monday.

It doesn't look like I'll be in the rotation to start the season because coach Tyronn Lue is going with Iman Shumpert, for some reason.

LeBron James will begin the season playing alongside two veteran guards in the backcourt.

I mean, it's just human nature.


Smith, who is beginning his third full season with Cleveland, knows it will take a lot more than a sore ankle to keep James off the floor. "I'm preparing for him to play".

It is hard to discuss the Cavs roster without referencing James' impending free agency. Unfortunately, I felt like, at that point in time, as an organization, we could not bring in enough talent to help us get to what my vision was. How can I get better?' And if it happens again, then you're able to have an even more positive outlook on it. He might not admit it, but he has some motivation deep down to play so well that Irving regrets leaving Cleveland. "So, it will be different but I think we have a better chance".

His demand to be traded this summer rankled some Cavaliers fans, and he created a larger divide last week when he described Boston as a "real, live sports city". James finished the game with 29 points, 16 rebounds, 9 assist, and 2 blocks in another dominant performance but that didn't stop him from getting a little extra work after the game. As it turns out, the most valuable player on a team that has the best player in the world is going to be the best player in the world. "Whatever decision they make, that's the right one".

I don't feel great about where my game is right now after having taken off three weeks, 3½ weeks. "So whatever they decide to do, I embrace whatever they do".
