LeBron knows he can’t beat the Warriors as long as they have KD with the roster the Cavs currently have, so it makes sense he would be frustrated.
This is good news for Lakers fans or any fans who think LeBron might be thinking about taking his talents elsewhere in 2018.
LeBron James, the NBA’s most powerful player and biggest star who brought the Cleveland Cavaliers their first NBA championship, is concerned about the Cavaliers’ offseason, a person close to the situation told USA TODAY Sports.
Expecting an aggressive offseason approach that would close the gap on the champion Golden State Warriors, James soon found his anticipation and optimism diminished after Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert dismantled the front office, declining days before the draft and free agency to bring back general manager David Griffin and vice president of basketball operations Trent Redden.
Gilbert’s decision left the Cavs without the franchise’s top two front-office execs at a critical time, and it left James frustrated and concerned about the team’s ability to put together a roster that can better compete with Golden State, the person with direct knowledge of James’ thinking told USA TODAY Sports.
LeBron was allegedly upset that the Jimmy Butler trade didn’t happen and is getting tired of playing for Dan Gilbert.
If the Cavs fail again to win a championship next year, LeBron likely will be on the move.
