LeBron James Calls Out NBA Double Standard For Players

  • LeBron James Calls Out NBA Double Standard For Players

The Cavaliers star has dealt with accusations of disloyalty on a couple of occasions, after leaving Cleveland for the Heat in 2010 and then returning in 2014.

The Heat are the only top-four team in both conferences without a player selected to the 2018 All-Star game. Though the Clippers are expected to build around young players and draft picks, they plan to go after free agents in July.

Love's loss will have a big impact on how the Cavs proceed as the February 8 trading deadline approaches. The Cleveland Cavaliers are shooting 36.5 percent from beyond the arc and 80.3 percent from the free throw line.

On the season, the Cavaliers are averaging 110.0 points, 41.7 rebounds and 23.6 assists per game. Harris can be a knockdown spot-up shooter himself.

Love's injury adds to a team already having trouble getting its rhythm.

Love's ability to occasionally take his man off-the-dribble only makes it harder for slower big men to cover him.

According to Pence, this was a key difference between the Republican-controlled Congress and its Democratic predecessors. Rainelle Mayor Andrea Pendleton was invited by Senator Capito to attend Wednesday's speech.

Of course, LeBron shredded much of the "villain" label when he rejoined the Cavaliers - and led them to their first NBA Championship in 2016.

The Cavs ended up pulling out the game, 91-89, but their problems are real, and even LeBron might not be enough to carry them through the playoffs this time around.

During their last five games, the Cavaliers have scored an average of 115.2 points per game (5.2 above their season average) and allowed an average of 119.8 points per game (10.0 above their season average). All of this could change very soon.

Bradley's role on the team wouldn't have been as clear.

With respect to his long-range production, Thomas' touch has been especially off after success in his first two games of the season. The thought is that his leadership and defensive ability would elevate the position, as Isaiah Thomas is a liability on the defensive end. A team that also needs more youth and defensive ability throughout the rotation in order to improve their transition, individual and team defense. These teams have been mediocre thus far and have not performed up to their preseason expectations as some have minor holes or flaws here and there that hold them back from being real title contenders.
