LeBron James    F  Cavaliers

 

 

LeBron James finished Sunday's tough home loss with 33 points, 13 rebounds and nine assists, going 14-of-25 from the field with a pair of 3-pointers. The Spurs threw the kitchen sink at him with five different defenders in the first half alone, but as usual LeBron continued to do his thing. His efforts were wasted, however, as his fellow starters combined for a mere 14 points on 6-of-28 shooting. Although he fell one dime shy of a triple-double tonight, he still made history by passing Rod Strickland for 11th place all-time in assists (7,988). The best news for fantasy owners is that with Cleveland in the thick of a competitive playoff race, LeBron should be protected from dreaded DNP-rest days.

LeBron James racked up 32 points, nine rebounds, eight assists and two steals in a tough loss vs. the Wizards on Thursday. LBJ sank 13-of-18 field goals tonight, with one 3-pointer, but that was the extent of the Cavs' offensive efficiency -- his teammates shot a combined 29-of-66 from the field (43.9%). Cleveland's revamped lineup had won five straight prior to this loss, but the No. 3 seed Cavs are still just 2.5 games ahead of the No. 6 seed Bucks. With home-court advantage in the playoffs at stake, LeBron's fantasy value looks rock-solid.

LeBron James led his All-Star team to a spirited win on Sunday with 29 points, 10 rebounds, eight assists, four 3-pointers and one steal in a game-high 31 minutes. LeBron earned All-Star MVP honors and his team played surprisingly aggressive defense down the stretch, including a suffocating double-team against Stephen Curry at the end of regulation. In the process, LeBron passed Oscar Robertson for fifth-most assists in All-Star game history, and he's just two assists behind Bob Cousy.

LeBron James hit 14-of-23 shots, three 3-pointers and 6-of-10 free throws on his way to 37 points, eight rebounds, eight assists and a block in Tuesday's 120-112 win over the Thunder. LeBron is averaging 29 points, 9.6 rebounds, 11.4 assists, 0.6 steals, 0.6 blocks and 2.4 3-pointers on 56 percent shooting over his last five games and the Cavs have now won four straight, including three in a row since they blew the team up on Thursday. Their last two wins came against the Celtics and Thunder, and the new-look Cavs look like a team that could win the East, if not the whole thing.

LeBron James flirted with a triple-double during Sunday's blowout win over the Celtics, tallying 24 points, 10 dimes, eight boards, two triples, one steal, one block and two turnovers in 28 minutes. King James absolutely spoiled Paul Pierce's jersey retirement day, and he appeared to be well aware of what he was doing, staring down the former Celtics who were in attendance on numerous occasions after knocking down shots (link below). He did briefly exit the game after banging knees with Aron Baynes, but he never went to the locker room and looked fine upon re-entering the game, so he should be fine for Tuesday's game in OKC.

LeBron James matched his career-high 17 assists during a 123-107 win over the Hawks on Friday, adding 22 points 12 boards, three turnovers and two fouls in 41 minutes. Are the Cavs fixed? Kidding aside, LeBron has been unbelievable as a passer lately with gem and 15 dimes on Wednesday -- he also had a whopping 22 potential assists in that win over the Wolves. This was LeBron's 10th triple-double of the season and 65th of his career, and the Cavs offense has hit on all cylinders over the last two games. Obviously LeBron's numbers will not be affected by anyone around him, so expect him to thrive around his new teammates when they arrive. He gets Kyrie Irving on Sunday.

The Cavs never approached LeBron James about waiving his no-trade clause, according to Chris Hayes of ESPN. ESPN's Brian Windhorst is also reporting that the Cavs did not get a commitment from LeBron that he will stay past this season before executing today's trades. However, the Cavs hopes of once again returning to the NBA Finals looks far more promising today than it did 24 hours ago.

LeBron James recorded his ninth triple-double of the season on Wednesday with 37 points, 15 assists, 10 rebounds, five 3-pointers, and one miraculous game-winner with 1.0 seconds left in overtime. LBJ helped force overtime by sinking a difficult 3-pointer with 45.0 seconds remaining, he later blocked Jimmy Butler at the rim with 1.0 second left in OT, and on the ensuing inbounds play he caught the ball at the free-throw line, turned and fired a perfect fadeaway over Butler's outstretched arm. He finished 16-of-22 from the field with one steal and one block in 48 minutes. It was a rousing home win on national TV, and the Cavs really needed it given their recent dysfunction. It's the latest reminder that LeBron is still King James.

After Tuesday's embarrassing 116-98 loss to the Magic, LeBron James said he'll "never waive" his no-trade clause. Reports started circulating on Tuesday morning that LeBron is "at odds" with Cleveland's front office, but he made it very clear that's he's committed for the rest of the season. "I'm here for the long haul," he said. "I'm here for this season right now, try to figure out ways we can still compete. I couldn't give up on my teammates like that. I couldn't do that." The Cavs led by as many as 21 points tonight, but they were outscored 65-31 in the second half and were held to nine points in the fourth quarter. LBJ finished with 25 points, 10 rebounds, five assists, one steal, two triples and six turnovers, and his Cavs are now 6-10 since the new year. Expect the Cavs to be one of the most active teams at the deadline, but LBJ isn't going anywhere.

LeBron James is reportedly at odds with Cleveland management. LBJ reportedly cursed at two Cleveland executives during a late-January meeting in which the legitimacy of Kevin Love's illness was questioned, and he also reportedly has "no relationship" with owner Dan Gilbert or Cavs' GM Koby Altman. Gilbert has been calling the shots in Cleveland ever since the Cavs parted ways with former GM David Griffin, and he's not involving James in the decision process, which has irked The Chosen One. We're headed for a wild summer.
