Following Monday’s game between the Lakers and Cavs, James gave Cleveland a lot of credit for its continuing rebuild.
The Cavs have been rebuilding since James left to go to the Lakers, but he likes their young pieces such as Collin Sexton and Darius Garland.
“I always pay close attention to what’s going on,” James said when asked about his interest level in the Cavs. “I think J.B. 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 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.”
The Cavs are 8-9 this season after they won just 19 games all of last season.
Bickerstaff clearly has this team playing at a high level, and the Cavs surely hope to only get better as their young core improves.
As the Cavs continue to improve, don’t be surprised if James has more praise for the organization he once called home.
