Cavs Coach And GM Had Talk To LeBron James About Being Too Friendly With Players Of Opposing Teams
It seems like the Cleveland Cavaliers are not happy with LeBron James being too friendly with his friends that play on other teams.
According to a report by Joe Vardon of Cleveland.com, both Coach Tyronn Lue and GM David Griffin had to sit down with LeBron on two seperate occasions in the past week to address his behavior on and off the court.
Lue spoke with James after Saturday’s 122-101 loss in Miami, during which at halftime James was noticeably chatting it up with his friend, Heat star Dwyane Wade, instead of warming up with the Cavs trailing by 21.
Griffin’s talk with James on Wednesday afternoon was a little more general, but was sparked by James’ comments to The Bleacher Report that he wanted to play with Carmelo Anthony, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Paul on the same team for a “year or two.”
Lue said James apologized to him for his behavior at halftime Saturday night, and Griffin’s discussion with James was positive and productive, with James echoing recent public statements about an upward trend for the Cavs heading into the playoffs.
We’ll see if these talks calm LeBron down for a bit or if he continues with his bizarre behavior going into the playoffs.
