Cavs Lebron's mindset making the locker room uneasy

Quote:
What seems like a lack of focus and positive body language from LeBron James during the playoffs has his Cavalier teammates and coaches perplexed.

"It has further become problematic that James has been disengaged during the games," writes Brian Windhorst of The Plain Dealer. "Not only has he fallen into the trap of 'letting the game come to him,' but he's been increasingly distant. In huddles he's looking at the ceiling or into the distance. It is not the James anyone on the team knows and his teammates and coaches have seen it. More problematic, they can't explain it and that is making the entire locker room uneasy."

During two skirmishes with the Celtics in Game 5, the normally fiery James stayed off to the side and did not get involved.

Windhorst also notes the team's building frustration with Mike Brown's inconsistent rotations as the coach searches for ways to get his team back on track.

Why do you guys want Bosh so bad if he tuned out his teammates when it counted most.

Typically the Plain Dealer is a pretty good paper. This story may be more than simple speculation. LeBron leaving the Cavs would make the Cavs an almost instant 30 win team. They're a team built for him.

Too bad too, all he had to do was show up in yesterday's first half.

And you seriously believe he bailed on this team at the All-Star break when we were one of the hottest teams in the league and were the 5th seed?

Seriously...........:facepalm:

Not at the all star break, but when times got tough. Not taking responsibility. See post-game interview @ GS.

his star fizzled, the all star break is a good place to start drawing the line.

That's ridonkulous. He left it out on the court as much as anyone post-all-star break.

watching that game last night Lebron just looked unmotivated as if he was saying "I do too much for this team, im tired of doing it all by myself"

either way he looks likes he couldn't care any less about the game and his post game interview was horrible, like he has no desire to win, he was surprisingly calm...

Quote:
A medical professional close to LeBron James is suggesting James is suffering from a torn ligament in his right elbow, according to a report from Fear The Sword.

"Lebron has a torn ligament in his elbow that should keep him out 6 to 8 weeks," said the source. "He's trying to play through it and not complain, so the media doesn't know it's that serious. Before game 4 he had a shot in the elbow to numb it. You can only get the shot once every 10 days, so last night he couldn't do it."
