This season for the Cleveland Cavaliers hasn’t gone as expected thus far. The team has been expected to reach the NBA Finals for another rematch against the Golden State Warriors, but with so many moves in the offseason, the squad not met any expectations yet.
As it currently stands, the Cavs are ninth in the Eastern Conference at a record of 5-6, rising from the bottom of the standings just a few days ago.
A lot of people have pointed at the fact the team hasn’t gelled yet and Coach Lue is still tweaking the lineups to come up with the best starting lineup. Others have called out their lack of defense. Injuries have attributed for a portion of their struggles too. Tristan Thompson is out and the piece that they traded for when they sent Kyrie Irving to the No. 1 seed in the East is out until 2018. Do remember, Isaiah Thomas averaged 28.9 points and 5.9 assists last season.
The media asked King James about how much pressure they should put on IT and his return and LeBron said they can’t count on one person to turn things around for them, others need to step up and help contribute as well.
