The Cavs are cool with not resting LeBron until he's done annihilating

He did this Eli Manning Youth Jersey despite the presence of Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love, because even with a pair or fellow All-Star talents and a handpicked supporting cast of veteran shooters on-board, whether the Cleveland Cavaliers live or die depends heavily — if not entirely — on whether LeBron’s on the floor.This was true in the regular season, when the defending NBA champions outscored their opponents by 7.7 points per 100 possessions http://www.authenticnikegiantshop.com/E … ing-Jersey with the King on the court, and got outscored by 8.5 points-per-100 with LeBron on the bench — in terms of point differential, roughly equivalent to the difference between playing like this year’s 61-21 San Antonio Spurs and the 2013-14 Milwaukee Bucks, who went 15-67. It held true in the opening round of the playoffs, when the Cavs outscored the Indiana Pacers by 28 points in the 175 minutes LeBron played, and got outscored by 12 in the 17 minutes he rested.
That’s why LeBron played a shade under 44 minutes per game in the opening round — without him, the Cavs couldn’t handle an outgunned Pacers squad featuring Paul George and Denzel Perryman Authentic Jersey basically nothing else — and that’s why the 32-year-old James will keep playing big minutes for as long as it takes. And his coach would appreciate it if you’d ease up off his back about it. Lue reportedly declined to elaborate on which teams have “suffered” from not playing certain players enough minutes, though we can make some guesses.By running LeBron out there for all but four http://www.officialnikechargershop.com/ … -c-14.html
or five minutes a night, resting him only in short stints at the ends of the first and third quarters — and sometimes, not even then; James played the entire second half
of Game 3 as he led Cleveland back from a 26-point deficit to seize control of the series — Lue ensures that his best facilitator and most versatile defender remains on the floor to activate any combination of supporting talent he can come up with.Need rebounding and interior bulk? James plays the three alongside Love and Tristan Thompson. Need more shooting and size on the wing against opposing bench units? James slides to the point to make room for the likes of Iman Shumpert, Richard Jefferson and Kyle Danny Trevathan Youth Jersey Korver. Need to go small to try to spread the other team out and run ’em off the floor? LeBron’s your center now.LeBron’s the skeleton key to unlock every door the Cavs face; no coach in his right mind would just let that sit in his pocket. The concern is that someday — and, a league-leading workload at age 32 in Year 14, after nearly 50,000 NBA minutes, someday soon — the key will snap off in the lock.Lue insists that the Cavs are mindful about not asking too much of James, but also that they’re not concerned that they are — especially when the payoff was a long layoff ahead of a second-round matchup with either the Toronto Raptors or Milwaukee Bucks, who will play Game 6 of their first-round series in Wisconsin on Thursday night. From Dave McMenamin of ESPN:
The question’s not whether LeBron can handle Atlas-level responsibility on his shoulders; clearly, he can, as he showed in last year’s Finals. And nobody doubts Lue’s point http://www.bearsnflofficialproshop.com/ … -c-50.html
that LeBron wants that responsibility; even in the context of occasional rests over the past couple of years, he’s made it clear that he doesn’t like limiting his minutes or sitting in a suit rather than suiting up. At issue is whether what’s best for the Cavs right now is what’s best for LeBron — and, by extension, for the franchise — in the long term.James, for his part, shrugged off concerns about his playing time after knocking off the Pacers.“The game plan is from the coaching staff,” James said after Game 4. “Coaches always ask me how I’m feeling throughout the game, and I feel great. If I’m out on the floor and I’m hurting us by playing a lot of minutes, then I need to come out. But in this series, I played a lot of minutes, and I felt great. I actually could have played the whole game if need be.”Sure would be nice, though, if Lue, Kyrie, Love and the rest of the Cavs could figure out how to do enough when he’s sitting that he doesn’t have to.
