“I’m fine and we’re fine,” said James, who had 18 points, five rebounds, and eight assists in the game. “It’s a long season, we’re out two starting point guards, alright? We’re not overlooking what’s going on, I wasn’t going to overlook if we had success, I’m not gonna overlook if we had a couple games off. I’m not getting too high, getting too low, I’m an even-keeled guy.”
James continued by explaining that the team is going through some early-season growing pains and that there is a lot of time to right the ship.
“We’ve played some crazy lineups that we haven’t even played in practice,” he said. “We’ll continue to get better. There’s going to be some games that we don’t look as good, unfortunately, but that’s all part of the process. We just have to be patient with it until we become full strength and we got lineups and things out there that we all become comfortable with.”
A 3-3 start to the season is no reason to panic, but it is a clear sign that the Cavs have room to improve if they plan on achieving their goal of bringing another NBA championship to The Land. Thankfully, the Cavs have the best player and best leader in the NBA in James. If he’s not worried about the Cavs’ slow start, there’s no reason anybody else should be.
