Let's not get carried away with the drama. Lebron is not dictating everything. He didn't have any input on the coach as far as i know. And he's not picking and choosing every roster move. He clearly wants Love, Miller and Allen to give him the best chance to win a title. Winning championships is a mutual interest here right? Does anyone honestly feel that playing alongside Love, Allen, and Miller does not help in that pursuit? And getting Allen and Miller is only comes as a benefit of having Lebron, at no real cost long term. While the chance to get Love only comes as a result of Lebron being there. Casting Lebron as some kind of evil force in all of this is an enormous stretch.

As to how he would not be able to dictate what happened in SA, well big whoop. He would hardly need to would he? That team already has a fully balanced roster with the necessary veteran experience. It's not like Lebron dictated anything in Miami either. Why try to suggest that is what he is all about? Again, there is a mutual interest involved here, and Cleveland is lucky to be able to benefit from Lebron's presence as a means of attracting the necessary talent, something which the Spurs would obviously capitalize on as well. And chances are that Lebron would have still signed the same contract with the Spurs to ensure that he kept the maximum amount of freedom for the rest of his career, as well as minimizing the losses to his true value.

I have an extremely hard time seeing anything sad there.

You guys are all missing the point. What's really important is LeBron's new and improved hairline.

According to windhosrt, deal is done but can't be finalized till 23rd.

Also Bennet may be moving to Philly for young.

This CAVS team IMO, looks decent but i feel like they might regret trading Wiggins

I saw that, why the hell would he want to be smaller? Does he want to be faster? I could see this being better for him in the long term, as it's easier on his body and he won't need as much food, but at the weight he was, when he's attacking the rim, people are scared.

Maybe he thinks this diet will help him from cramping?

How? Many common forms of cramping in athletes are treated through better hydration, and increasing potassium in the diet (a lot of runners eat bananas). Cutting carbs does not help with hydration. Carb depleted dudes usually carry less water weight.

I have no idea about this stuff. Was just speculating since he's had that issue.

I have a feeling that Cavs are going to be playing great ball, but Blatt is not going to get much credit for it, because Lebron is on the team. Too bad, he is one of my favorite coaches

That is correct. He's probably eating a lot of fruits and veggies but just cut out breads.

Somebody get the boy some brown rice, he doesn't look very intimidating, he actually looks sickly, given how he normally looks.

Maybe since he'll be playing next to Love/Thompson he won't be playing the 4 much if at all so he wants to add quickness to play the 3 more regularly. Whatch him play SG.
